Working through the slicehost article:
I ran into an error.
$ >iptables-restore [~]
$ >iptables-save >
which seemed to work. At least, it didn't barf.
So I've finally gotten around to setting up my slicehost. Probably should have done this long ago, but there you go.
Just a quick note about setting Maven logging preferences. Useful for maintaining separate logging.properties files. In this case a simple configuration for deployment with all logging set on WARNING and a local debugging configuration with more detail on a fine grain package by package basis.
