RIP x86

Posted 01-21-2016 at 02:40 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 01-21-2016 at 02:46 AM by rocket357 (typos!)

I've had a goofy x86 pizza box for over a decade, some early PIII with 256 MB RAM. It has a couple of odd features, namely it boots off of CF and has dual on-board NICs, that made it a nice firewall machine. I got it when the ISP next door to the company I was working at went out of business, and the network guys didn't feel like hauling all the gear off.

Only problem is, it is the only 32 bit machine in my inventory, and I've been putting off upgrading it. Luck has it, fate chose...

On Ubuntu

Posted 01-18-2016 at 11:23 PM by wagscat123

I started using Ubuntu when it gained popularity before Unity, MIR, and even the Ubuntu Software Center. There was just Synaptic and the apt stuff, and GNOME 2.
It was an updated version of Debian with Wubi, Ubiquity, and polish that made things "just work". This made it catch on fire, and become a good place for newbs and casual users. And from Debian it inherited a huge amount of compatibility, stability, and familiarity with experienced users.
Ubuntu has had to figure...

How to configure NFS Server and Client Configuration on Ubuntu 15.10

Posted 01-18-2016 at 10:50 AM by sridhar11

It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again,this is a client/server environment. While this seems like a standard service to offer, it was not always like this.

OpenBSD on AWS - Yes! It's true!

Posted 01-16-2016 at 06:11 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

OpenBSD-5.9-beta introduced an important piece of the puzzle for running OpenBSD on AWS. It introduced Xen Guest drivers, namely the network drivers.

This is seriously cool. I have a few OpenBSD VPSs around the world doing various things in KVM, but I've always wanted to "bring them home" to AWS.

So here it is,...
