Was there an NHL game last night?

Yesterday my Internet activities was restricted unnecessarily!

While waiting for the replay of last night’s NHL game to air, I didn’t want to browse quite a large chunk of my normal Internets – because knowing the score while watching the game sucks. Unbeknownst to me – there was no game last night! Queue impatience, etc.

No more! (at least for the remainder of 2015 edition of the Stanley Cup).

Today (2015-06-07) it says YES, hopefully tomorrow (2015-06-08) it will say NO :) //update – it did!

This is my first trek into google cloudappengine thingy. Very much work in progress but it’s enough for now.

check_irods – nagios plugin to check the functionality of an iRODS server

Part of my $dayjob as a sysadmin is to monitor all things.

Today I felt like checking if the users on our servers could use the local iRODS storage and thus check_irods was born!

It checks if it can:

  1. put
  2. list
  3. get
  4. remove

a temporary file.

Dependencies:

  •  iRODS 3.2 with OS trusted authentication
  • mktemp
