Ubuntu Boostrap

The mainframe & a few other projects are now on Ubuntu machines at Linode, a provider of cloud-hosting and a sponsor-of-podcasts-extraordinaire.

Linode provides comprehensive documentation for getting up & running on their (virtual) hardware, but since I’ll be going through this rigamarole a few times in the near future I figured it was best to have a relatively methodical approach… BEHOLD!

(The script probably contains a few things that you won’t need — PHP and Node — so please don’t copy & paste blindly.)
