Network Admin, Sys Admin, Solaris, Linux, and I'm sure I'll have some anti-M$
So at work we have an application that shows the hotel staff the status of their network. I wrote it a long time ago when I was first learning PHP, soooooo it sucked. I've finally gotten to rewriting it, and I must say its a whooole lot better. Before I wasn't even using MySQL because I didn't know how (I think anyway. I might have just thought it was better to use a flat file. . . man I'm an idiot). So now the status is shown kinda graphically and all pretty like!
So I'm installing Freemind on Ubuntu and it isn't perfect, but easy enough. Thought I would just make a quick mention on how I did it. Installing Java seems easier than previous versions of Ubuntu. Just go to Add/Remove in the main menu, search for "sun java" and install what you like.
dpkg -i pkg-name". I also got an error when I tried to run it:
sudo update-alternatives --config java" and choose "
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun/jre/bin/java". Easy as that.
I use Google Reader for my RSS needs, which have just started. I never really read many blogs or anything before about two weeks ago. But with the Reader I now read plenty of blogs and it makes things quite easier. The Reader gadget for Google home page is really cool and I use that mainly really. Also podcasts are cool if done right. The great posts on the right is from my Reader shared list and you can also look at the complete list.
I discovered the free VMware-player the other day and decided to try it by installing Windows on Ubuntu. I've used Qemu before, but it wasn't quite what I expected. It was pretty slow and I couldn't get the Qemu accelerator to work. So it worked, but I never used it.
I use Digg pretty often. I have a couple feeds on my Google home page. I most often check out the stories in the Linux/Unix section. Sometimes there are some great articles there, and I learn some stuff. But usually the comments left behind by the Digg Linux/Unix community just plain . . . . . suck.
I've been using sunrays behind firewalls and routers for a while now using other DHCP servers to hand out the correct attributes. But, I've only found the right attributes in one place. Here at Notre Dame's site, an assistant professor named Aaron Striegal made a short how-to. Here are the main things you must put in your dhcpd.conf:
At work we've got a couple webcams for hotels being built. They are a new type of suites brand for Choice. Look here for the webcams. Managing the images for the webcams have been just "great"!
A long time ago, we got a bunch of ITX boxes for kiosks for hotels. I put Ubuntu on them and did some editing and made them kiosks. Firefox was the only application that came up and no one could exit it. Well, I had to do that in a week and I had no experience with it, so it sucked. We've replaced them now with sunrays (whew), and now we have some of these back at the office.
Read Wil's review of this episode. It is freaking hilarious. I read it days ago and I'm starting to laugh again...
At work I use a Sun X2100 with a AMD dual core 64bit. We colocate it at an ISP. Its got Solaris 10 on it with virtual interfaces on the bge0 interface. The nge0 if connects to the ISPs router and the other is for our network. I've had it routing for quite some time. But now I needed to see if I could get NAT working too. Well it took a while (cause I'm stupid), but I got it. Sun's docs really aren't bad when you find it. I had heard that getting NAT to work on virtual interfaces wouldn't work, but I went ahead with it.
Just started using blogger.com because I'm kind of tired of maintaining my own site. No one reads my blog now anyway, but hey its kinda fun. My site is nahun.ath.cx. I mostly blog about my job, network admin, sys admin. Mainly with Solaris now, but plenty of linux too. We'll see how much I can get into it.
