Works really well.
Rejected story submission.
For any AMD fans out there, check this out. Now you can run Intel, POWER5, and AMD side-by-side in a single blade chassis.
Any IBM'ers going to PLTE in San Diego next week? At 1pm on Tuesday, one of the sessions being offered is "How to build an enterprise using only Open Source software". Should be interesting.
From this, the convicted film pirate Russell Sprague was found dead in his jail cell awaiting sentencing. I can't believe our beloved
Ugh. I need a
I'm currently volunteering at two different places that IBM has recently donated servers and workstations to. I've been a professional VMWare ESX consultant for a couple of years now, and I'm a national leader for Grid, OS, and storage virtualization technologies in the group I work for (~800 consultants). As such, I've wanted to help the places I volunteer at get the most out of their server equipment, so I've dabbled in OSS virtualization technologies for some time now. UML was neat, but su
The installer for FreeBSD 5.3 doesn't even boot in VMWare ESX 2.1.1. A couple times a year, I decide to try some of the fringy stuff bandied about around here. Last week, I setup Gentoo (from stage 1) on a P2-266 w/128MB. Took about 3 days to get a gnome desktop, but at least I got there. Emerge is great for installing new software, but HTF do you query the package system to see IF a particular package is installed? You know, like rpm -q or dpkg -l?
Anyone who knows "The Manchester Scene", and just plain Brit Rock knows John Peel. He died yesterday while on holiday in South America. Many of his live "Peel Sessions" CDs adorn my collection, and were just as important to me as the studio albums I bought.
When I took a trip to England early last year, I checked into my hotel room and turned the radio on. Sure enough, John Peel was playing Bauhaus on his retro show. It was like I was finally home.
About 18 months ago, IBM and HP were in a tight battle to acquire AT&T's desktop support group (PDS). HP won out. Well, within the last couple weeks, some former AT&T'ers noticed that 27,000 desktops are vulnerable to various attacks against systems running Microsoft OSes and applications. Someone else ran their own script and determined that the 27,000 figure was off to the high side by 18,000. They are now scrambling nationwide trying to figure out how to patch somewhere between 9,0
Just because I haven't said anything in a while. Work has now taken me back to staying in Manhattan. I worked at home for the last 9 months, and lived in hotels for the 11 months prior to that. So, I was driving in Manhattan yesterday, and was the lead car stopped at a red light. 52nd and Broadway, I think. I had the Murano recently cleaned, had an Alien Sex Fiend cd blaring, and had the big ole "LINUX" licens
Wanna see something freaky? Have you heard antislashdot? Its a site dedicated to karma whoring by copying verbatim +5 posts into a database and then making a search front-end for easy retrieval and reposting under someone else's name. Well, I decided to search on my handle to see what's out there, and I found this! Scroll down to March 10th. Its not the same as antislashdot at all. I was actually kinda impressed that they liked my po
Ok, getting closer. I picked up MechAssault for XBox over the weekend. Oh, the XBoxUSB adapter cable arrived in 3 days from Hong Kong! I've always heard good things about Lik-Sang, but I just couldn't believe that it would be that easy to order something from Asia. $13 for the cable and $20 for shipping.
I ordered the USB adapter from Lik-Sang today so that I could do the chipless Linux on XBox. In particular, I wanted to hear some comments from people who have installed xbox-linux for the purpose of running a remote MythTV frontend.
