Introducing docker-xymon

In short: build and deploy this for instant monitoring.

Seeing no viable containerization of the Xymon monitoring system (and the 'net is large -- I could have missed it), I have created some.

Eventually I will be maintaining images on the Docker Hub as well as the source.

A collection of Graphite input tools and a Xymon monitoring script to consume data from Graphite and update Xymon column status based on Graphite data.

svntools: Subversion tools for command line geeks

This is a project home page for my collection of tools to work with Subversion, mostly from the command line, Unix or Cygwin basis.

Status: BETA (-): they are underdocumented and do not have automated test suites. I have used them extensively and have shared them with colleagues.

Money, stock and livin'
Are waitin' when I finish this day.
