ReadyNAS 104

My old NAS went pop a little while ago and I’ve spent the last few weeks backing up to alternate servers while trying to decide what to get to replace it. Reading the reviews on Amazon is a bit of a nightmare because there are always scare stories, regardless how much you pay. In the […]

Yosemite : It’s like OS X, but more boring to look at!

I went on my MacBook last night and saw I had updates available on the App Store. I figured this was one of those Twitter updates that seem to happen every time you blink. Much to my surprise it was a new version of OS X. You can tell how little of an Apple fanboy […]

KeePass 2.28 Released

KeePass 2.28 has just been released. I’ve just upgraded at home (Fedora 20 and OS X both on Wine) and at work (Windows 7) and everything looks fine. Read about my Adventures with DropBox and KeePass to see how I make use of it. Cheers Tim…  

MobaXterm 7.3

With all that OpenWorld stuff going on I managed to miss the really big news. MobaXterm 7.3 was released. This version includes a fix to Bash for the “shellshock” bug. Downloads and changelog in the usual places. Cheers Tim…

Site Hosting Update : The Proxy Wars

This site hosting thing really is the gift that keeps giving. I wrote a little over a week ago about an outstanding issue with the website, which seemed to be related to people’s company proxy servers, rather than my web server. While I was staying at the Sofitel, I started to get the issue where the HTTP address for […]

WordPress 4.0

WordPress 4.0 “Benny” has been released. The download is in the usual place, but you are probably going to upgrade by clicking the auto-upgrade button. I did 4 upgrades and all went fine. I can’t say things look that different after it, but you’ve got to keep on top of these upgrades I guess. Cheers Tim… […]

Altering Hosting Service : The Gift That Keeps Giving

I moved my website to a new dedicated server about 3 weeks ago. As well as the usual DNS nonsense, I found out today that a whole load of emails have been blocked… I have a mailbox at the hosting company to handle all my email. That all gets sucked into Gmail. That’s the way […]

MobaXterm 7.2 Released

While I was away on that F5 Load Balancer I noticed MobaXterm 7.2 is now available. I made use of that and PortableApps.com to get a familiar environment set up… Cheers Tim…

F5 Load Balancer Training Course : Day 3

After the previous day’s “networky” stuff, day 3 was back to some stuff that was more relevant to me. Amongst other things, I got a quick primer on IPv6, which was pretty useful and we looks at iApps and iRules. It looks like I will be writing lots of iRules using TCL to replace the […]

F5 Load Balancer Training Course : Day 2

Day 2 was a lot more “networky”, so it was pretty tough. I got through all the labs and stuff worked, but if I’m honest I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing. Added to that, I won’t have privilege to do most of the stuff we covered when I’m on the real […]
