Train rides

Usually I do not do social commentry, but it has been really nagging me.

Recently I started MRT train rides on SMRT and SBS Transit lines. I have been driving and carpark rates in the City is ridiculous, so park and ride is more wallet friendly.

I noticed that there are some passengers insist on playing their favourite tunes on their handphone speakers. Once was rap and the other day was Chinese songs. On both occasions, fairly mainstream music, not very annoying but I prefer my sound of rumbling trains.

What gives?

Palm Vx digitizer gone nuts

I have lost controlled of the lower half of the screen. Looks like I need to do a hardware reset to get it to calibrate. Then add in the Hackmaster plugins to have full control.

The Brave One

Jodie Foster's character, playing vigilante. After being brutally attacked and losing her fiance, she got herself a gun. Trouble came looking for her and she had some target practise. What I find it strange is that New York finest does not have a forensics unit. There were no fingerprints or hairs to correlate between the different crime scenes.

The finale, well any regular viewer of CSI will tear that apart in 5 minutes and even without the use of DNA testing.

Aside from the above, an enjoyable movie, an apt lesson for any aspiring vigilante. Violence bites back.

That seems to be too complicated, since I am changing the IP address of my NAS, the location of the files remain the same. I really can't do a source and destination copy.

There got to be a simpler way.

Project Management

Once upon a time, an architect friend of mine commented what is so special IT project management. You have the lead time and alloted time for the task. Plan and execute. Unlike construction project management, we don't have to contend with weather and all the nice things of working outdoors. I tend to agree until I tried installing Symantec Backup Exec 11d

Cloning the HP way part deux

Using HP's Server Migration Pack to do migration requires three servers. The source, destination and the application server. If there is a firewall in between any of these servers, you will need to open some ports. Windows Firewall is automatically disabled when the migrations starts.

Meet Shorty

Shorty, the smaller brother of HP c7000 Blade enclosure is now available. The new c3000 is targetted towards SMB. It is a very compact enclosure, with only eight half height slots compared to the C7000 16 slots. To achieve this size, some power options are not available.

All the server blades, interconnect options are currently reuseable on the c3000. For more info see here and a excellent video site
