Baby tips

With our new baby I have picked up a few tips. I’m not sure they will work for any baby but they work for ours! So getting the baby to sleep: If she is fed, and changed, and tired I then prepare the sleeping room. I make sure the room is warm and dark and then If needed I whip out the white noise CD. Another thing we like is bouncing on an excercise ball, it makes the baby think she is being walked about but uses a lot less energy!

Dim fromUser As New MailAddress(from_txt.Text)

Arthur McBride

I have a version of ‘Arthur McBride’ from an online music class I took in community college. Its my favorite version of the song. It lists the artist as Michael J. Strunk. but a google search can’t bring up anything on him, real network doesn’t know about him, Amazon neither… so anyone know anything about him??

Thanks

So what is going on here, there is a report of network interface traffic – top 10 Ports and…. it thinks the heaviest device is a jet direct with 2.8 KB in and 464 bytes out… is this only looking at snmp devices because I know my servers pump in and out way more than that.

I also noticed that it has detected one of my servers twice, once with a FQDN and another without

Dangers of virtualizing part 2

We started using the free version of VMware server to create some test systems. These were great and a great way to roll out numerous test servers…. (plus as VMware expected we did turn around and buy ESX server which works great)

Whats the catch, the ease of virtualizing makes it lot easier to lose servers. In the real world you don’t often misplace a server but once a ‘server’ become just a file, especially one that is not really being watched after, then sometimes, just sometimes, it might get deleted during a server migration or for any number of reasons.

Be warned, virtualization makes things really easy. Sometimes too easy….
