figuring out CPU capabilities

I recently got an IBM eserver xseries 226 from somebody, they only do HP in that shop, and it was a leftover from a takeover they did a little while back. Since he wasn’t going to use it, he gave it to me. Thanks a lot buddy! 🙂 After some investigation, I found out it […]

Bikes and Subways

really do not match! Why do people take their bikes into a subway? The trains are overcrowded as it is in rush-hour, and every so many stops someone rams a bike into a compartment. It’s one of the many things I think the GVB (The company that does all of the public transport in Amsterdam) […]

goodbye…

Today we said goodbye to our old manager, it’s sad to see him go, but his ideas just didn’t match with the direction the company is going. I think he found a spot where he’s going to be much more happy now. Still, we’re going to miss him. He’s got great ideas, and he’s a […]

Why I won’t upgrade to Windows Vista

It’s fairly well known that I run windows xp on my home computer (for my work I have a MacBook Pro). The only reason I run Windows XP on that thing ( it’s acctualy a triple boot system: Windows XP, FreeBSD 6.2 and Ubuntu) is for playing games. ( I’m still an avid Battlefield 2 […]

FreeBSD on vmware ESX 3.x

Okay, at work we have a vmware virtual infrastructure (or vmware esx 3.x) setup. It’s a really sweet setup, made up out of four boxes (HP DL385’s) with two dual-core AMD Opteron CPU’s, 16GB of RAM, and a nice 6TB SAN for storage. There’s a windows DL380 for virtual centre, and to manage the snapshots […]

Lakeside 2007

And the winner is…. Martin Adams! Boy, was that ever a tense final. First Adams put the score to 6-0 in sets, after which Phil Nixon came back to put the score to 6-6. Then Martin picked up where he left off and won the last set, making him the new world champion. My wife […]

Microsoft: Linux owners owe Microsoft

At least, that is what Steve Ballmer claims in an interview. This so smells like another round of FUD from Microsoft. Mind you, he does not deliver any form of proof, but it’s more a continuation of the deal with Novell earlier this week, where Microsoft agrees not to sue users of Novell products. ( […]

7960 mayhem

Thanks to a good friend of mine, I got a Cisco 7960 IP Phone today! I intend to explore the features of the beast, and maybe try to get it working in combination with the voip thing I get from xs4all. Perhaps toy arround with Asterisk while I am at it. The only downside to […]

(grok)-IX

I’ve been editing and structuring the Wiki for the -IX for some time now (the name hasn’t been decided on yet), and it looks good. We have people, we have hardware, we have transit and rack space. Now all we need is to get started, and we’ll be happily peering BGP4 again. For those of […]

Just testing

Another post for fiddling around with wordpress. For one I can see why this thing is so popular, it has a very easy interface, and yet still very powerful if you read up on the specs of WP a bit. I think I’ll put my entire site in WP, and extend it from there. The […]
