Looking at my old web server hardware docs to see what upgrades it might take. Lo and behold, a slot 1 pIII cpu could be a replacement for the old slot 1 pII cpu. Grabbed the parts bin and whoopie there was not only a pIII, but faster than what I already had. Did the swap and now the web server is so much peppier. That was so successful, we upgraded another machine with good results.

As for the web server, we restalled it from scratch. Installing the web based apps is generally easy....

OpenLDAP +Solaris = /facepalm

Posted 07-09-2012 at 02:06 PM by kbscores

Setting up ldap even with TLS on a Linux (specifically RedHat) is a fairly simple process. You simply download the file, install, and configure. Easy. Even the biggest problems are solved within minutes. This does not seem to be the case with Solaris. We are now fighting round three with the Solaris servers. We started by trying to configure the Native. It seems as if there are many more successful Native guides out there. We got the schemas. We created the ldif entry. We used ldapclient...

A Bit About Digital, Part II

Posted 07-08-2012 at 04:47 PM by theNbomr (Ramblings from the soapbox of theNbomr)

A Bit About Digital

This essay is to clarify some common misunderstandings about how digital data is created, stored and used.

In the beginning.
By now, we've all heard that computers 'only use ones and zeros', and mostly we've come to accept the apparent contradiction without really understanding what it means. The statement is true, if not somewhat over-simplified. The use of only 'ones' and 'zeros' is another way of saying that digital devices are binary in...
