Nudismul, sau dezbracatul in public

Lorand R. Minyo mi-a transmis o leapsa destul de personala, pe care nu prea am cum sa o refuz, ca mi-am cerut-o cu lumanarea. Sa ii spunem exercitiu de curaj.

La fel cum zice si el, mai jos au sa apara chestiuni personale, indecente, x-rated sau oricum altfel vreti voi sa le spuneti. Nu o sa va trimit pe disney.com ca stiu ca nu o sa mergeti, si o sa incepeti sa cititi cu interes ce scrie mai jos.  Dar, aduceti-va aminte: daca cititi, o faceti pe propria raspundere, si nu puteti folosi nimic de mai jos impotriva mea!

Explicatie scurta, ulterior adaugata:

Corina: si dupa ce se face leapsa aia?
Corina: care-i regula?
Corina: scrii 100 si ceva de chestii … jenante more or less despre tine ?
.marius: nu
.marius: se ia lista respectiva,
.marius: si se boldeaza chestiile care le-ai facut.
.marius: si is 200 fix…

Si daca tot e o leapsa, ar fi frumos sa o dam si mai departe:

Evident, in stilul caracteristic, leapsa poate fi preluata de oricine, mai ales de cei din BlogRoll… 😉

Remote Desktop Applications

For moments when you are not able to use normal Remote Desktop Connection, there are some applications that using a third server can help you manage your remote windows machines.After trying a few, I got stuff narrowed to TeamViewer and ShowMyPc. Did you guys use them? Give some inside info if yes. Waiting for your comments. Maybe you have some other applications in mind…

Windows based hosting vs Linux based hosting

Lately, Microsoft entered the hosting business with full throttle. The number of Windows servers available on the web for hosting purposes, VPS’s on Microsoft Windows 2003 or DDS’s on MSVS grows quite exponentially.

At this point the end user, the customer does not care much what platform he is hosted on (i.e. Linux or Windows) if he has a simple website, maybe a forum, a blog or something like that because technologies are intertwined: you can get an apache webserver both on windows and linux, and you can get ASP support on Linux. Maybe if he needs some VB applications to run he will definitely need windows based hosting, but that’s about it. He gets FTP to upload files, a control panel (i.e. SWSoft’s Plesk) to manage domains, mail addresses, databases, name servers etc. The main problem here is scalability. Thinking in the future, you need to decide if you are going to expand, and in which direction because you can easily switch from Linux to Windows, but the reverse is not that simple. I would suggest Linux of course, being much more secure, robust and efficient.

Today I had to delete 1 folder on a windows VPS. How much do you think that took? whatever you said, the answer is no! Let’s see:

  • remote desktop to the VPS – 15 seconds
  • locating the folder in question – another 10 – 15 seconds.
  • trying the delete button, checking permissions 1 minute
  • googling for something as trivial as “how to delete a directory with a space in its name” and finding the right solution: 15 minutes. (this is an extreme drawback… Windows problems, are often not well documented)

Add to that stopping the VPS from virtuozzo (vzctl stop VEID), mounting it on the VPS Node (vzctl mount VEID) and going to the mount point ( c:\vz\private\VEID\root\Inetpub\FtpUpload ) and then unmounting (vzctl umount VEID) and restarting the VPS (vzctl start VEID) nand you’ve got yourself a good 25 minutes spent on removing 1 folder:

C:\Inetpub\FtpUpload\ \ÿta18594-ÿ\ÿ-;; &20 @tagged .by; quit %f;;…-ÿ\ÿÿ-ÿÿ\ÿÿ–ÿ\ÿ-;% scanned by %d.-ÿ\ÿÿ-ÿ

My advice? stick to Linux. Why? because Linux is well documented, it has a great community behind, mature, and many many more qualities can go here.

Internet Explorer vs. Firefox

It sounds bad huh? everyone talked about it, and probably will talk about it some more…

You know that some people requested that Microsoft removed Internet Explorer from the Windows install CD’s? Yes, they did. Do you know what Microsoft replied? Some of you know, some of you probably don’t, so here is what they said:

We can’t remove Internet Explorer from the windows install, because, if we do, you won’t be able to download Firefox…

Well, I’m not here to take sides, I’ve been using Firefox for some years now, and I like it, I’m using it, I almost love it. But today I decided to download Internet Explorer 7. Guess what I used to download IE? Firefox of course…

Why did I do it? Well, I’m kind of sick of the memory leaks in Firefox, and the recent hiccups I’ve been experiencing, and since I have to use Windows for work, why not give a chance to IE also, and try the software that’s supposed to be “compatible”.

I’ll just give it a chance, for now.

You will know that I switched to Internet Explorer from Firefox, when this webpage will be Internet Explorer 100% compatible.

Also, using Office 2007 for the past weeks, made me like it quite a bit. Today I just added some of my RSS feeds to it, right next to the 5 IMAP accounts I’m using at the moment, if all goes well, I might change to it indefinitely… Bye bye Google Reader…

For wordpress users: If you didn’t update to WordPress 2.3.1 yet, do it. It’s nice.

LINA! Open LINA!

lina_logo_only.pngNo no no, it’s not my new girlfriend… It’s a long expected platform for running software with native look and feel on different OS’s…

Their description is quite explanatory:

LINA enables Open Source applications to run on Windows, Mac OS X, and UNIX operating systems with native look and feel. GUI applications running on LINA are indistinguishable from the other applications on the user’s machine because they utilize the native libraries of the underlying operating system. LINA integrates native linux command line applications directly into the DOS, Mac OS X, or UNIX console. The configuration files of Web applications that run on LINA are fully accessible and editable.

It’s quite a nifty thing, and I can’t wait to get home and play with it!!!!

The return of the…

I really had no idea what title to use for this post, as it marks my return to the blogosphere… I have so many things to tell you, so many funny videos on YouTube worth linking up, so many jokes, so many things that happened…

Let’s start with something funny: Everyone remembers “Dragostea din Tei” right? the stupid Romanian song that went crazy in every non-Romanian talking country around Europe… Yeah, that’s it! You remember it! I’ve got two links for you right now

Now that’s crazy, but the opera version sounds a bit cool…

I returned from The Netherlands, and you can see some pics here. I flew a Fokker 70 on my way there, and the same Fokker on my way back. I can’t say that it was a pleasant first flight for me, but the pilot managed to land safely, two times 😀 and I have no complains. The funny thing is that there is some experimental model of Fokker out there, one which was built to land on MUD… Don’t ask me why, but they call it a mudder fokker (do I need to spell that out for you? 🙂 )

It was time to say goodbye to my trusty Nokia 3510i, and for the first time in many many years, I switched brands, and I got a Sony Ericsson. It’s a J220i, quite simple, quite lame, no Romanian T9 dictionary, which means less text messages from me from now on, because I’m lazy, and I can log into my Gmail account now over WAP or GPRS or whatever. The old Nokia did not support Gmail’s forms, and I couldn’t type my username & password…

Bored already? I thought you might be, so I’ll end here 😉

PS: I decided to stop using Microsoft Windows a few months ago, and I’m not using it anymore, Ubuntu became my primary OS, so all of you out there who want Joost invites, I’m sorry, but I can’t run Joost on Linux… maybe on one of the other computers around the house or in the office, if the “request” is really high…

And here we go!

Nu credeam ca o sa mai reusesc, era sa renunt la un moment dat, dar pana la urma, tot raul spre bine, sau cum spuneaaboutmac.jpg mai devreme un prieten, there is no joy without a little hustle!

Mai am inca multe de facut, si de invatat, dar merita… So right about now, I’m going to yell: “In your face Mr. Gates!”

In alta ordine de idei, mi-am petrecut weekendul instaland mac osx, am pus niste poze pe flickr, si probabil, dar nu sigur, ca o sa postez cu data de ieri si un post numit “birou de blogger” ca de aia am facut pozele 😉 deci: Biroul 1 si Biroul 2. Va rog sa nu va legati de Halle Berry ca nu v-a facut nimic, da?

Update: Nu este vorba de o masina virtuala, si nici de un produs al companiei Apple, este un Acer TravelMate 2482NWXMi, procesor intel, si momentan cu un superb dual boot mac OS X / Windows XP… Windows is going bye bye soon, linux will take over 😉

 

mere…

Pai, am facut azi primii pasi spre un sistem de operare MAC OS X pe laptopul meu… dupa lupte seculare care au duratjoblogo.gif cateva ore, ca nu vroiam sa pierd windowsul si tot ce aveam pe aici deja configurat si pus la punct, m-am cam prins care e faza: modificare de partitii, backup pe un harddisk extern, am salvat aproape tot ce aveam nevoie… A trebuit sa renunt la niste seriale pe care le adunam sa le scriu pe DVD’uri (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Heroes… 🙁 ) dar nu e stres. Se mai gasesc. Eh eu am reusit sa trec de primele probleme. Si iata un MAC OS X care se instaleaza frumos, stau si astept, ma enerveaza…

Trebuie sa plec in centru, azi canta Kumm in Roland Garros. Au venit niste prietene de la Timisoara cu care ar trebui sa ma intalnesc.

Totul mergea bine, pana cand a venit mult asteptatul moment sa pornesc noul sistem de operare… Ciu Ciu… s-a blocat… restart! se blocheaza din nou. restart cu dvd’ul inauntru, se blocheaza din nou… nervi, strigate urlete… mai incerc.. inca o data… poate cand revin. Daca tot nu reusesc, I’ll stick to my linux.

 

grrrrr…

 Update: ei bine, am incercat mai multe variante, de la 10.4.8 pana la 10.4.5 si nici una nu merge. I need professional help, I never thought I would say this. so tomorrow, either I get the help I need, either I just get my linux back, up and running.

memory upgraded!

Hey Morris! Hello Captain! Are all systems functional? Yes sir! then, full impulse power away! Errect nipples!

ram.jpg

Captain… if we get a Mac we will have warp…

I know Morris… let’s try OSX first… I’ll decide later.

Update: Vista… Windows Vista… Microsoft Windows Vista!

Update la update: Nu, nu am pus Vista… I don’t like Vista!
