Linux refresher

Welp, today I had to search my brain to figure out how to create new filesystems on a linux distrobution since I’ve been focusing more on Solaris lately. Just incase others need this info and do google searches, I’ll put the info on here. First thing you do is figure out how your disk is […]

Zones and containers

Last week I created my first few zones in Solaris 10. While this process was fairly simple, I decided to create a script to do most of the work for me. This is a really simple perl script and anyone can use/modify it as they see fit. If you’re interested in using it, please let […]

Solaris containers (zones) & more.

For you computer/server geeks out there, Solaris seems to be a great way to go for your virtualization needs. Read this article and see how it works. There are so many advantages to Sun products at this time that I don’t know if I’ll be getting any other kind of name brand computer products. I’m […]

Mortgage and interest.

I just used a mortgage calculator and…. There is no way in hell I will pay a bank over $150,000 in interest on a loan that is for less than that amount. The total cost of a house would be almost $300k, and I’m not down with that, especially after 20k for a downpayment! Looks […]

It has 1800sqft, including the finished basement, a pretty big back yard, and parking for around 8 cars in the paved driveway. I thought about it until around 7pm last night and […]

RIP Cory Lidle

I have a gambling problem.

hi Dad.

Dad, I want to say thank you for everything. Your birthday is tomorrow and I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately. Kevin’s getting so big and he’s such a kickass kid. I’m finally doing a job that I (mostly) like and am getting paid well to do it. Michael is doing about the same […]

Finally, we’re back up and running…

I swear, I hate people who just can’t leave shit alone. The company hosting this site was hacked using a 0day exploit. Why people just can’t tell the makers of the software and stop trying to abuse their knowledge is beyond me. It’s very frustrating when trying to run a business and people decide, “Hey, […]
