I’m considering implementing a multi-platform regression testing box. This would be used to run regression tests on each of the platforms. My first consideration was install each OS on a different partition/HDD, then boot into each OS for each test. Then I considerered something like VMWare, or Xen. The pros/cons I thought of were: […]
I’ve found my Santa Cruz Heckler at Elite Cycling and Fitness. It should be ready for me on Wednesday. The RP23 rear shock upgrade has been ordered on a 3-day delivery. The price is $2200 (If memory serves). That’s $1999 + $85 upgrade = $2084 plus tax. Another place I’ve been talking: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=329438.

This talk will introduce you to Bacula, show you the main components, give you an outline
I am staying in the Hampton Inn at Jonesville, NC. This morning I was in Ottawa. That’s about 1400km north of here. My friend on my journey was a Garmin Nuvi 250. And there are about 1165km to go. The conferences are over (BSDCan & PGCon), all the gear is packed up, and stored at
I’ve been playing with OpenVPN since mid December. I like it. I like it better than IPsec. Why? Because OpenVPN can give me direct access to all my systems wherever I am. I can cvsup from my cvsup server at home from a hotel in Toledo (if I’m ever there). IPsec can do that. But
In 17 days, I’ll be in Florida. I’m heading down to Palm Beach on business, then over to Tampa to visit friends, and catch a Lightning game. The tickets are vastly cheaper than in Ottawa.
