UDP: Output Processing

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 13:20:13 GMT

When an application program generates UDP output, it transfers control to the operating system and eventually calls procedure udpsend to send the UDP datagram.

Novell Netware - A history Part 8

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 11:02:38 GMT

A standard feature of NetWare 4.x was the support for many different workstation platforms. It contains all the software necessary to install and operate the network server and to connect as many as 1,000 DOS, OS/2 UnixWare, or MS Windows workstations, depending on the configuration purchased.

Cloud-based Licensing Proving to be Unbelievably Cheaper Than On-Prem

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 14:26:07 GMT

The reality is that if you want to install and run your applications on-premise, software developers do not want your business because they can see the difference in the costs of support for on-premise customers vs cloud-based.

Digital Transformation is Escalating Technical Debt Out of Control

Sat, 04 Nov 2017 18:31:55 GMT

For every $10 million dollars that a fortune 1000 company is pouring into digital transformation, they are potentially generating up to $1 billion in technical debt within their backend systems and infrastructure in order to make it work and perform like their upstart competitors.

CloudPassage Accelerating Secure Container Orchestration

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 19:41:02 GMT

Devops continues to accelerate Docker container orchestration in the cloud and beyond. But one of the key areas that we need to continue to focus on is Security.

Technology to come

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 16:46:33 GMT

Within the scope of my own current lifetime, I have personally seen some major changes in how technology has changed. I have seen the coming and going of many technological advances and I have experienced many fundamental changes in how technology has affected our lifestyle.


Technology has advanced so much and it seems that there is no slowing down of how much it will continue

Technology and the generation gap final

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 15:32:54 GMT

So the current generation who are now parents and grandparents as well as becoming the active leaders of this ball of ice and fire are like the bridge between the older generation and the up and coming generation.


It is us who have gone through the most major changes in technology (although I think the older generation will beg to differ and the future generations will probably

Technology and the generation gap continues

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 14:46:17 GMT

Previously I placed down a few words on how the older generation has or is handling this current state of technology. I can really understand why they have so much trouble. I mean, after all, in their lifetime technology has changed so much and so rapidly it is hard to keep up with.


Even my generation has trouble keeping up with the amount of change in technology. Personally,

Technology and the generation gap

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 14:00:30 GMT

The current crop of newly minted adults has known pretty much nothing but modern technology their whole lives. They literally grew up with computers, smartphones and remote controlled house appliances. Heck, even I, with the half-century mark less than twelve moons away have pretty much grown up with computers since before I experienced hair in places other than my head.



Why do people choose Linux? final

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 16:52:54 GMT

There are simply too many reasons to choose Linux and I have come to the conclusion that it is just not practical to go over them all. For a start I will come across as a Linux fanatic (well I am but that's beside the point) and it will also get old and boring very quick (much like I am in real life) So I will conclude this ramble on why people choose Linux in this final batch of monkey key presses

Why do people choose Linux? part 3

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 15:54:54 GMT

I just can't seem to be able to put this subject behind me. Especially when I consider that when I started blogging I had a hard enough time stringing a few paragraphs together. Now I can't seem to shut up on a particular subject.


While some people love the openness of the open source software paradigm and how they can use it for free and fix bugs if they so desire this holds

UDP: Input Processing Part 2

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 15:31:54 GMT

Because the code uses a sequential search of the upqs array, allocation of an entry is straightforward. Procedure upalloc searches the array until it finds an entry not currently used, fills in the fields, creates a Xinu port to serve as the queue of incoming datagrams, and returns the index of the entry to the caller.

UDP: Input Processing Part 1

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 15:14:02 GMT

In addition to the declaration of the UDP datagram format, udp.h contains symbolic constants for values assigned to the most commonly used UDP protocol port numbers. For example, a TFTP server always operates on port 69, while RIP uses port 520.

Why do people choose Linux? part 2

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 15:05:18 GMT

Well, it seems that I have more to say on this subject than I thought I would. Previously I said that the most popular reason people say that they choose Linux is because it is free as in beer. It is not, however, the only reason people choose Linux.


Some people choose Linux because it is not a proprietary operating system. This is not a financial decision but more like a

Why do people choose Linux?

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 14:00:07 GMT

In my mind, Linux is the ultimate operating system. Other people will, of course, think differently, however, Linux is the operating system I have chosen to use and I have used it for many, many years.


Lots of people have chosen Linux same as lots of people have chosen different operating systems. Even within the Linux technosphere, there are also people who have chosen this

Novell Netware - A history Part 7

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 01:40:48 GMT

In the discussion of MAP, we noted the need for the use of coherent directory services through the X.500 standard. With NDS, Novell had met this requirement. It had based NDS on the X.500 public directory standard, which enabled NDS to work with other X.500 directories as they became available.

Novell Netware - A History Part 6

Sat, 28 Oct 2017 21:29:58 GMT

Users and applications could gain access to enterprise-wide information and services through the following features:

Distribution, distribution, distribution

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 06:36:25 GMT

Anyone who had followed me for any length of time knows that I love Linux. I love it because of the power it give me over my hardware and I love it because the Linux I use is mine and mine alone and not some platform where I have no control over how it works and only have the right to use. I am not going into the licensing just yet as I am just going to talk about Linux distributions.



Technology in toys

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 04:25:13 GMT

I don't know if you remember this but one of my favourite toys when I was knee high to a grasshopper was an Evel Knievel stunt motorcycle toy. I have many memories of skinned knuckles while trying to rev the motor up as much as possible. It was the most technology advanced toy I had at that time.


There were also the other standard toys I had, and made. A Bozo the clown punching

Novell Netware - A history Part 5

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 12:22:44 GMT

Access to other networks from a Novell LAN was often supported through the use of gateways?technologies that were usually supported on independent communications servers.

Novell Netware - A history Part 4

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 21:00:10 GMT

Directory would turn out to be one of Novell?s longest running products as many networks would initially choose this directory platform over Microsoft?s Active Directory solution. Especially if the environment was heavily favoring Unix/Linux machines.

Cryptocurrencies will live FOREVER - Get Used to it

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 21:04:27 GMT

Has the hype gotten too hyped? Sure. I totally agree. I have been involved with bitcoin and blockchain since 2010 and frankly I?ve heard enough about it all and really just wish that people would focus on delivering the value that the technologies can bring rather than continuing the escalation of hype.

Novell Netware - A history Part 3

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 21:45:50 GMT

Portable NetWare represented a substantial departure for Novell, in that it was designed to allow the porting of server functions to a wide variety of operating systems and machines.

Novell Netware - A history Part 2

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 11:07:54 GMT

We need to keep in mind that the Netware NOS was a mainstay of networking for over a decade before it declined into obscurity against offerings from IBM and Microsoft. But the NOS and their directory services would continue to exist in many corporate infrastructures for at least another 10-12 years before complete take outs would occur. Some organizations hedged on Novell?s directory services over

Novell Netware - A history

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 22:09:59 GMT

Version 2.0 of Advanced NetWare was released in 1986 and brought increased functionality in performance and internetworking. Through the full implementation of the 80286 microprocessor's protected-mode operation, Advanced NetWare brought performance to networks unavailable in real-mode operating systems, which were limited to 640K of RAM.

Making sense of the world, cyclops

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 16:34:42 GMT

Us humans and indeed most of the animal kingdom are built on what's called bilateral symmetry. In other words, if you were to cut us in half each half would be a mirror of each other.


For this reason, we have in general two of everything. Two arms, two legs, two ears and of course two eyes. One of the advantages of this is, as I mentioned in an earlier writing, is that of

Manufacturing Automation Protocol (MAP) Part 3

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 15:29:45 GMT

The MAP specification designated specific ISO standards as the basis for manufacturing automation for each layer in the full seven-layer OSI Reference Model, as well as the way in which those standards are to be used.

Manufacturing Automation Protocol (MAP) Part 2

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 15:22:46 GMT

MAP recognized five distinct classifications of communications capability: MAP end systems, MAP intermediate systems, MAP/EPA systems, MINIMAP systems, and MAP bridges.

Making sense of the world, peep show

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 13:36:43 GMT

I purposely left this one for the last. This particular writing is pretty much a direct line to my brain. Actually, they are considered a direct extension of the brain as far as I know. An extension which, for all of my life, have not worked like most other people.


As I mentioned in the first blabbering I wrote in this series my eyesight is not the best. I have been wearing

Making sense of the world, eat me

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 12:45:26 GMT

Continuing on with this tasty subject I mentioned last time that as machines run on electricity they don't need to taste things. Something struck my brain cells after that and I remembered.


We also run on electricity. Our thoughts, our nervous signals and a whole lot of other stuff runs on electrochemical interactions. In other words, we use electrons as well, same as our
