A sad goodbye

Many of you have already heard that there will be no more Hammy Fridays. Hambone passed away in my arms on New Years Day. He struggled with a heart condition and seizures for years.

I had the amazingly good fortune to spend nearly two weeks in Cuba with an entrepreneurship outreach program recently. As you might imagine, there was a bit of bureaucracy involved. We had to go through several layers of travel agencies and the Cuban government had to approve our detailed itinerary.

It's transparent for the end user, when Puppet Enterprise Code Manager is configured, and can be used in Puppet Open Source by following the documentation.

A while back I created the http://puppetlinter.com website. It allows you to quickly and easily validate Puppet code against several different versions of Puppet. Today Josh had an idea. Why not a bookmarklet to easily validate Puppet code from a website. Why not?

  1. drag the bookmarklet link above to your bookmarks menu.
  2. Highlight some code on a webpage.
  3. Click your bookmarklet link.
