Today during our usual weekly roundup meeting, my boss announced that we're about to put in place a new VM server "cluster". It's a relatively nice setup: 3 servers, each with 2 quad-core Xeons and 48 GB of RAM. Each is connected to an iSCSI backend with TB's of storage...

So my boss asks us to estimate the CPU/RAM/disk space usage for our most critical servers that should be migrated over to the VM's. My most critical one is my OpenBSD server that I use to monitor all...

Bucket of worms

Posted 05-02-2010 at 10:08 PM by Mr-Bisquit

Michael, one of my brothers, is a few years younger than me and this concerns him when he was five.
Being extremely industrious for his age, Mike saw an opportunity in making money but didn't know how to go about doing it.

Michael took hold of this idea and decided to fill a five gallon bucket with worms and dirt. Taking his wares, he lugged it from house to house with no sales whatsoever....

Give me a few moments.
No, I am not afraid of death or of dying.
I fear that I will not be able to correct my wrongs before I do.

Depression sucks, again

Posted 05-02-2010 at 02:53 AM by Mr-Bisquit

I'm taking celexa for it but it will still come on.
Take today, for example. Nothing wrong, really, just a little irritated from normal things. Now, for some reason, I just decided to give up on a project and went about asking to be banned.
It wasn't a gradual I-am-not-doing-something-right-so-I-can-not-take-it-anymore response it was from a hey-can-I-get-help-with-this to a sudden screw-you-screw-me-screw-everything attitude in less than a minute.
I'm writing...

Is Linux better for elder machines? My case study.

Posted 04-30-2010 at 04:55 AM by AGer (Void cries or bashing time)

Linux is for elder machines. Naturally, the term "elder" in this truism is to be understood as "less capable", not as "antique". The fact that any machine is less capable when facing a proper task makes things interesting.

Having Athlon 3500+ processor and R690 integrated video, my proper task is the 1080p video. My experience with it suggests that

1. The best player is MPlayer. That is, other options like VLC or KMPlayer (Windows only)...
