Just listened to Dire Straits “Money for nothing”. Every time I stay in a hotel and there is a TV set in the room showing with MTV I ask myself WTF happened to MTV. Is there realy music between all those ring tone commercials. I want the MTV from my youth back.
Damn I’m old.
I recently reviewed a Cisco router configuration. Access via ssh was disabled and only telnet was allowed from some host. Ok, IOS only supports key authentication starting with IOS 15 but I thing that using an encrypted channel to configure and troubleshoot a router is better than clear text. And ssh is available in the standard image for quite some time.
While installing some software I got the following error message:
Installation failed. Please check /var/log/foobar.log.
Installation failed. Please check /var/log/foobar.log
someone might have put the console cable from the test system to a productive one. Reloading the wrong box might be a bad idea.
Ok, some might argue that putting live and test equipment into one rack and using the same passwords for both is also not a very good idea. I totally agree.
And before you ask: I checked and didn’t reboot the wrong system. But it was close.
BGPmon has some statistics about IPv6 deployment per country. Quite interesting and still a lot of work to do.
Some time ago I wrote about using WLAN on board an ICE.
While cleaning up my bookmarks I found this address explaining the technology behind it. Sorry it’s in German.
What is it? Why can’t people answer emails? Recently booked a hotel room via email because I had to use a special booking code.
They didn’t reply, they just booked the room for me. I had to call to find out.
There is one thing you have to know about me. I like being ignored. You don’t have to answer my mails. Just ignore them when I’m offering support and help. Do not answer my e-mails. Just route them to /dev/null. I don’t care. But do never ask help from me again. Unless you pay for it.
I just have to remember this. As I know me I will do the same mistake all over again.
Last week I remembered why I don’t work with windows. I needed to install some vendors firewall management software on a windows machine which lead to some very strange error message which were caused by some DLLs from an older version of the software.
