I have seen an insane increase in spam lately. (comments asking for various information, usually asking what hosting company I’m using since my site is fast to load and various other similar things.)
the common denominators are that they all come from random character gmail addresses and the IP is Chinese.
usually it’s listed in spam databases like stopforumspam
I got 30-something in the last 48 hours.


sunny day in London

Filed under: diverse — Zinit @ 16:43

I am in London this weekend and spent the last few hours at the british museum.
too bad I was too late to get tickets for the Vikings exhibit today. would have loved to see that one today.
still, there is always something to do and see there. the funny thing was when I was leaving. there was some jehovas witness people standing outside preaching creationism and explaining “what the bible really teaches”. looked like the lady standing by the other gate selling fried almonds had more business than they did…


A new year has come, and the old is gone.

Filed under: diverse — Zinit @ 19:10

3 days into the new year..
it will be interesting to see what will happen in the next 360-ish days.. Time will tell I guess..

I started trying out MS word 2013 for blogging, has been interesting to try.
I have been experimenting with various blogging clients for some time now, Some with more success than others.
I need one that also works on my windows RT tablet AND can post to self hosted WordPress blogs.
So far email posting seems to be the most promising.. word can’t post it for some reason.. account verifies, but posting fails without any explanation why..
guess I’ll figure it out eventually.


Windows azure

Filed under: diverse — Zinit @ 09:01

Latelly i have been testing windows azure. Nice system with lots of potential. The internal network function is a bit weird though… Each machine need to use a vpn to connect to it…
Currently i have 3 vm’s there. One win2k12, one sles 11 and one centos.  And a few websites. Works like a charm.

nice setup. something to concider for my raspberry pi. I would use something to power it from ethernet though.. less cables and less fire hazard

Server in house.

Filed under: diverse — Zinit @ 22:21

So, nothing like ebay to do a good deal.
1x dell poweredge 1950 III with 1x xeon E5430 and 6GB ram. Total cost about €200.
Perfect for esx.
I also got a hold of 4x 2GB dimms. So i can get it to 12GB ram.
Hoping the dimms will arrive tomorrow.


Home made SAN

Filed under: diverse — Zinit @ 11:57

I created myself an iSCSI san yesterday. Total cost: various junk i had laying around, so cheap…
Via epia ml8000 with 800Mhz C3 cpu and 256MB ram
4 port cheap-ass pci sata controller
300GB maxtor sata disk

Using debian stable, iscsitarget and system management through webmin.

Works like a charm.
Downside is that the via card only has a 100Mb NIC.
Only one pci slot means no room for a giga card.

Next step: get a hold of hardware to make an esx server.
