I felt a lot like that recently after I had installed CentOS6.4 on a Hyper-V Server 2012. I had “yum updated” the Linux VM before it dawned on me that I had skipped the whole legacy-network-adapter–install-LIC-swap-adapter-for-synthetic dance. When I … Read the rest
I have written previously about running CentOS on Hyper-V. Subsequently, I updated my VM from CentOS 6.2 to 6.3. When this happened the kernel version changed to 2.6.32 and the drivers that used to support the Hyper-V virtual hardware components do not work. Microsoft has released a newer version of LIC that works with the new kernels. You can … Read the rest
Having tried all the major virtualization vendor’s products over the years, I am most familiar with Microsoft Hyper-V and so my network lab runs that hypervisor on hardware.

After I upgraded a bunch of servers, one of them started sending me warnings like this once per week, when cron.weekly ran.
/etc/cron.weekly/99-raid-check: WARNING: mismatch_cnt is not 0 on /dev/md4
Tim (we didn’t write the book on MT, just the manual) Appnel wrote to the MTOS mailing list, ostensibly addressing reasons for using CPAN modules in place of MT code that replicates pre-existing CPAN mods. He made a technical point, but I think this point is so much more important, I have quoted it. I removed the … Read the rest
Pandora’s box is open.
Bridges have been burned.
Things will never be the same.
Its the first day of the rest of our lives.

I have never really used Flash for anything. My attitudes and knowledge of it all stem from experiences gained around 2000.
