  • Bringing the VMs back online

    okay. New hypervisor hardware. Switching from xen to KVM. I took a snapshot of the xen partitions and moved them to a holding location during migration. I am now imaging these partitions to the LVM block devices: calcifer:/home/cjac# for guest in `ls /usr/src/moonunit-guests/ | grep -v -e etc | awk -F- ‘{print $1}’` ; do […]

  • I think perhaps they mean “could join x86 in the server room”

    As much as I love PowerPC, and as great as it is that they’re doing this OpenPower thing, I don’t think that the first step should be to eliminate the competition. Perhaps they should put some effort in to taking back a large part of the market. Didn’t these guys read The Art of War? […]

  • This is getting serious.

    I might have to visit the HP on which I recently upgraded the iLO firmware… Maybe it would be good if the family visited Seattle. cjac@foxtrot:~$ ps auwx | grep ‘ping ad0.colliertech.o’ cjac 8411 0.0 0.0 10692 920 pts/8 S+ Apr25 0:32 ping ad0.colliertech.org cjac@foxtrot:~$ ping ad0.colliertech.org PING ad0.colliertech.org (208.115.126.68) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 […]

  • Wheezy 7.5 is out

    And my ISO archive is out of date again. *sigh* Luckily, apt-mirror has reduced the time required to upgrade all of my machines significantly ;-) cjac@foxtrot:~$ date ; sudo lsb_release -a Mon Apr 28 13:56:16 PDT 2014 [sudo] password for cjac: No LSB modules are available.

  • Really large NLP corpora

    Jeeze people. You’re all noisy. I’m sure it was all done for posterity’s sake. 23M irclogs/MagNET/#perl.log 29M irclogs/freenode/#mysql.log 36M irclogs/freenode/#debian.log 37M irclogs/foonetic/#xkcd.log 39M irclogs/OFTC/#debian.log 43M irclogs/freenode/#jquery.log 44M irclogs/freenode/#perl.log $ for file in irclogs/MagNET/#perl.log irclogs/freenode/#mysql.log irclogs/freenode/#debian.log irclogs/foonetic/#xkcd.log irclogs/OFTC/#debian.log irclogs/freenode/#jquery.log irclogs/freenode/#perl.log; do echo -n “$file: ” ; head -1 $file ; done irclogs/MagNET/#perl.log: — Log opened Thu […]

  • Relatively high sustained rates detected along I-405

    $ scp moonunit.colliertech.org:/mnt/downloads/sh1-disk-20140420T070034.xz . cjac@moonunit.colliertech.org’s password: sh1-disk-20140420T070034.xz 76% 534MB 11.1MB/s 00:14 ETA Come on little internet! You can do it! You can push 100Mbit! I remember when this was the fastest I could send data across my LAN. Not bad for a 20 mile shot up I-405. Sorry if I caused any congestion there, folks. […]

  • AD Physical to Virtual conversion… Continued!

    So I wasn’t able to complete the earlier attempt to boot the VM. Something to do with the SATA backplane not having enough juice to keep both my 6-disk array and the w2k8 disk online at the same time. I had to dd the contents off of the w2k8 disk and send it to the […]

  • Windows is *still* loading files

    I’m moving the active directory server off of hardware on to the hypervisor. I think if I boot the drive as USB I can install the virtio disk drivers on the system. Fingers crossed! Only thing is that this first boot off of a USB device takes *sooooo* long!

  • When was the last time you upgraded from squeeze to wheezy?

    Wow. 3G delta. I haven’t booted this laptop for a while… I think I’m finally ready to make the move from gnome2 to gnome3. There are bits that still annoy me, but I think it’s off to a good start. Upgrading perl from 5.10 to 5.14. cjac@calcifer:~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Reading package lists… Done Building […]

  • OpenVPN configs with inline data

    I’ve been issuing a lot of x.509 certs and OpenVPN user configurations lately, and I came across something that has reduced the complexity quite a bit. It seems that OpenVPN configuration files can now include data inline. So rather than generating and distributing the following for each user: a configuration file a chain of CA […]
