bubbl.us: Flash Flow Charts

After recently trying to find a decent application for creating flow charts under Linux (and failing); I came across bubbl.us!

It is awesome; for example:

Zimbra Network Edition: Unable to determine enabled services from ldap.

I recently came across this error when restoring a Zimbra NE backup to a new server. It appears that this error is caused by the zimbra_server_hostname in /opt/zimbra/conf/localconfig.xml not matching the host name of the old server.
Changing from mail.example.com to the zimbra_server_hostname of the old server fixed the error and Zimbra now starts properly!
