Automagically update grub.conf labels after installing a new kernel
I like to label my grub boot options with the correct kernel version/build. After building and installing a new kernel with "make install" I had to edit my grub.conf by hand. To avoid this, I've decided to write this little command line to: 1. read the version/build part of the filename to which the kernel symlinks point 2. replace the first label lines of grub.conf grub.conf label lines must be in this format: Latest [{name}-{version/build}] Old [{name}-{version/build}] only the {version/build} part is substituted. For instance: title Latest [GNU/Linux-2.6.31-gentoo-r10.201003] would turn to title Latest [GNU/Linux-2.6.32-gentoo-r7.201004]"

Test load balancers
With the "--resolve" switch, you can avoid doing DNS lookups or edit the /etc/hosts file, by providing the IP address for a domain directly. Useful if you have many servers with different IP addresses behind a load balancer. Of course, you would loop it: $ for IP in 10.11.0.{1..10}; do curl --resolve subdomain.example.com:80:$IP subdomain.example.com -I -s; done
