Down for me or everyone?

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Ever had to determine if a site was really down or if it was just you that couldn’t reach it? If you have access to multiple computer networks you already have some ways to determine if it’s a problem with the site or just your connection, but…. there is a good online tool for that. [...]

Making a 1000BT crossover cable

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

I’ve been using 1000BT switches here for a year or more now, but just today have I run across the need to make a crossover cable. Many 1000BT (*gigabit ethernet) devices support “auto-mdix” which basically means a direct interconnect no longer needs a crossover cable. However, some devices don’t do this and it looks as [...]

We’re back up after a very strange outage. The 500 internal server error was because our .htaccess file was sideways. What I mean by sideways is that part of a line had been truncated which led to an incorrect htaccess rule and all sorts of error pages thrown up. Interestingly the only thing happening prior [...]

Out of Cycle Windows Update – Patch Today

Friday, October 24th, 2008

Yesterday news broke of an out of cycle security patch for Windows. The bulletin is available from Microsoft. Apparently the vulnerability was in the Windows Server service (XP, 2003, 2000, 2008, Vista ALL affected though regardless of server/workstation/client/desktop/etc…). The RPC handling (remote procedure call) is the achilles heel this time around. It sounds as though [...]

Is 10:04PM the most creative time of day?

Monday, October 20th, 2008

The telegraph brings us this survey which claims that 10:04 PM is the most creative time of day. To contrast that 4:33PM is the least creative time. It’s not clear HOW exactly the survey was conducted, but apparently I would be among the 25% of people that burn the midnight oil working on their ideas… [...]

Jungledisk – online backup solution

Monday, October 20th, 2008

How many online backup solutions ARE there now? Anyway I’ve seen another cross platform solution in JungleDisk. It’s available for Windows/Mac and Linux and uses Amazon.com’s storage as a backend. The software itself is free you just pay for the storage you make use of. (15 cents per GB using Amazon’s S3 service.)    Send [...]
