Windows 7 Upgrade with a Clean Installation

Sun, 05 Jul 2009 05:13:02 +0000

Directing your attention to the current promotion Microsoft has in place for people to purchase an upgrade to windows 7, I had a few questions and began to search around. After much reading I along many others, from my findings on the internet, still have one question left answered. It on the surface a simple [...]



LSISAS3442E-R BIOS and Firmware v1.28.02.00 and ESXi 3.5u5

Sat, 27 Jun 2009 21:20:19 +0000

This is partly a continuation of a previous post which I described my Esxi 3.5u5 I/O problems. Since that post I’ve searched google and read in the vmware community forums for any known performance issues with Raid 1E in a four drive configuration compared to Raid 10, checked if there was a known problem with [...]



Do you want BusLogic or LSI Logic? Choose wisely.

Tue, 21 Apr 2009 02:14:18 +0000

I’ve been setting up a new home server to host a few vm’s and noticed along the way the poor performance I was seeing from the server.  For an initial rundown of the specs: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L CPU: Penryn E8200 2.6GHz Memory: A-DATA 8GB DDR2 800 Storage: LSI SAS3442E Network: gigE At this time the [...]



Looking Back at Today’s Black Friday

Sat, 24 Nov 2007 01:33:04 +0000

I’ve ventured out in the past on previous black friday’s fighting the traffic, parking, and crowds and certainly know what it’s like.  Today I didn’t.  Sure I get aggravated from the hassle and waiting in line but I didn’t see anything out there that made me think “wow, thats way too good to pass up”.  [...]



Next year I’ll be Santa Clause for my Halloween costume

Fri, 16 Nov 2007 01:48:45 +0000

During the past month or so, roughly a week before Halloween, I along with countless others began to see Christmas decorations, ornaments, lights, and the general decorations that go with Christmas. pop up a more and more each day in many retail stores and malls. The key problem to this being it was still October. [...]



Installing a New Keyboard – Part 2

Tue, 13 Nov 2007 02:45:08 +0000

To continue on from an earlier installment, Installing a new keyboard – Part 1, I had time to look into this further and every turn I took it became more and more bleak until I succumbed to what I was ultimately hoping to avoid. I made a complete backup and formated the laptop with a [...]



Using VMWare ESX 3.0 in a SATA drive environment

Sun, 04 Nov 2007 05:39:38 +0000

About a year ago I wanted to setup a VMWare ESX 3.0 server to test out their new (at the time) release, unfortunately, I didn’t have the funds needed to setup a true production environment with it. I was able to find a fantastic alternative that is great to learn off of at a much [...]



Everyday is exactly the same, except for tomorrow

Mon, 29 Oct 2007 01:17:03 +0000

Some time ago it gradually came to my attention that I’ve fallen into a routine, like many others, and that I would get up, head to work, come home, do my things in the evening and eventually head to bed. After all, humans are creatures of habit and seeing that I’ve fallen into one isn’t [...]



VitalStream/InterNap the brand you can’t trust

Fri, 26 Oct 2007 05:09:56 +0000

I wanted to write up a short and sweet review of an experience we had with VitalStream (www.vitalstream.com), now part of InterNap (www.internap.com), in case someone is doing searching about their CDN (Content Delivery Network) and streaming services before they sign up. During the spring of ’07 a company I’m affiliated with began to offer [...]



Entertainment is not News

Thu, 25 Oct 2007 02:20:07 +0000

I was flipping through some RSS headlines and am disgusted with how celebrities and their antics make it to headline level news. There is a section for that under entertainment with music and movie releases and it belongs in the little square under those, not with key issues with the top headlines. When I check [...]



Keep in mind where you’ve been, and where you’re headed

Sun, 21 Oct 2007 04:52:59 +0000

The Shoe Event Horizon is now a firmly established and rather sad economic phenomenon which, in future times will be taught as part of the basic Middle School Life, the Universe, and Everything syllabus. … TEACHER: Stand up! Harsh Economic Truths, Class 17. You are standing up? STUDENT: Yes. T: Good. You are living in [...]



Email Branching – It’s time to put an end to the madness

Thu, 18 Oct 2007 01:56:29 +0000

One pet peeve of mine that has been increasing over time is when an email is sent with all the various information and someone in the list of people that received it decides to respond to the second or third latest to the chain, thus throwing the flow of the conversation out the window. I’m [...]



Installing a New Keyboard – Part 1

Wed, 17 Oct 2007 03:34:20 +0000

Couple months back I picked up a new Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 keyboard to replace my current one. I’ve used it at work for quite a while and thought it would be a good replacement. Being familiar with technology and having assembled a few computers over the years I didn’t give installing it a [...]



Who moved my…website?

Sat, 13 Oct 2007 06:45:35 +0000

Since I began thinking about starting a blog, about a week and a half ago, I’m finding more and more things related to them and RSS that I haven’t paid much attention too. What comes to mind at the moment are things like the feature’s I’ve seen in WordPress from the ease of adding a [...]



VMWare: Watch out for those snapshots

Sat, 13 Oct 2007 00:18:59 +0000

I consider myself to be fairly cautious when implementing a new server level application, especially so for the level in which ESX runs and how much depends on it to be stable. Something escaped my attention, or perhaps it wasn’t talked about much in the docs I read. Either way it’s too late now and [...]
