Business Week just did a really nice article on me.  We have a lot of cameras around the office, so some of the more interesting ones made it into the photo shoot.

If you have an IP camera, check out for all your camera monitoring and socializing needs.

Capistrano and awk

I was trying to use the cap invoke pattern and couldn't get it to work with awk.

$ cap HOSTS=user@server invoke COMMAND="awk '/PORT/ {print $8}' /var/log/ftp.log"

Turns out you need to escape the $8. The correct form is:

$ cap HOSTS=user@server invoke COMMAND="awk '/PORT/ {print \$8}' /var/log/ftp.log"

Note the backslash before the dollar sign. Even though there are quotes, the $8 get's lost somewhere along the line.

In the first case cap output looks like this:
* executing "awk '/PORT/ {print }' /var/log/ftpd.log "

and in the second case:
* executing "awk '/PORT/ {print $8}' /var/log/ftpd.log "

Hope this helps!
