making decent progress on building an initial prototype of heka!
also, from what i know, you went and hustled people for a job until you got one. that's the thing i really don't get about some of these people on the internet -- they ask for money yet don't really show any evidence that they are trying to correct the situation that got them asking for money to begin with.
with others, it makes more sense -- people like Ginny can't work because if they work somewhere, they will just get fired because of trolling. i get that.
plus the tool in question is similar in philosophy to ubuntu's "juju" and "charms", which kind of validates the whole concept in some way.
i'm really digging the name "heka" for an alpine-oriented configuration management system.
"heka" refers to the ancient egyptian "unholy magic."
configuration generators can exist in a "grimoire" to continue with the nomenclature.
