    Good luck with that :)

    We are still working on the new code base for the site... I am hoping it will be complete really soon and this will be not only possible, but much faster :)

    When this was written, I did not expect 30,000 messages :)

    First off,  I signed up for guitar lessons and am looking at a Randy Rhoads RX10D Jackson guitar,  dude wants 300 bucks Canadian and it comes with a rectangle road case.  Think thats a good price?   (here is the ad: http://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-musical-instruments-guitars-Jackson-Randy-Rhoads-RX10D-W0QQAdIdZ516768866 )




    There is a residency here in town i help from time to time.

    Recently they had a 100 meg optical circuit installed and will be moving from their old ISP to this new one.

    I recommended they buy a new server to act as the firewall/router.  They did,  which ended up being a Dell 420 with 32 gigs,  E5-2420 6C @1.9 dual PSU unit.

    The ISP has assigned me a boat load of IPs.

    I wanted to ask if anyone is running a firewall within a VM and what your experience has been like.  latency issues or otherwise. 

    I've done it before but only to protect other VMs which were hanging off a 10 megabit circuit.  This is 100 megabits,  with about 120 students.  

    Sounds crazy but its an idea i'm considering...   I'm thinking it would be neat to run ESX then install a pfsence firewall within.   if not i'm just going to do bare metal pfsence install.  


    but really,  i just wanted to ask about my guitar....

    RE: guitar - the frets look tarnished and the fretboard doesn't look well kept.  Also playing guitars with tremolo lock nuts makes play 1st fret barre chords a little harder, also that guitar shape is terrible for playing sitting down, it slides all over your leg and makes positioning more difficult.  I wouldn't buy a guitar these days without hearing it first hand ESPECIALLY an electric with older pots and pickups.  

    Do yourself a favour and go down to your local music shop and see what they have for $300 that you can try while you are there.  There's a lot of really amazing guitars in the $400-$500 range right now and the Fenders that  sell for $200 - $300 have very good action for a Chinese made guitar (better action than some of the guitars I paid two to three times more for in the early 90's).  In many shops they have consignment and resell for trade-ins and I've seen some nice Epiphones and Fenders that would normally retail for $600+ on those racks for $300-$400 and best of all, you can try them for hours before making a decision.

    RE: Firewall, router - with a machine that beefy I don't see running into many problems, unless you give the student cart blanche on the network, then they will run that connection into the ground.  My only concern would be to make sure you can write logs to disk fast enough.

  • 09/16/13--13:30: kepler quadro and cs5
  • By Wayne Chang - hi, anyone using a kepler quadro (specifically, a k4000) with cs5 apps (specifically, photoshop cs5) and getting unexplained slowdowns? i have an artist's 35-megabyte, very simple, few-layers photoshop file and showing/hiding even a single layer takes between 1-3 seconds. Doing the same thing with a different graphics card or with minimal gpu acceleration is nearly instantaneous (as expected).

    By Todd Smith -

    There's a newer line that Fender came out with called the "Modern Player" line.  These are Chinese made guitars built to higher specifications than the Squier line and all of them are priced at $399.  Many of these are remakes of classic Fender bodies - Jazzmaster, Jaguar, Tele Strat, and some more hybrid approaches like the Maurader which is somewhere between a Strat and a Jag.

    Very cost effective and very well made, these are causing a bit of disruption in the Epiphone line, because many have used and complained about the Squier line over the years.

    Long and McQuade has locations all over the place and they have trade in programs, I tend to use them the most because there's one up the street from me.

    Cheers,

    well your post just totally blew the wind out of my sails.  8(   Thought I was gonna haz me a geeetar tonight!    I already sent him a 'when can we meet' message...  I'll play the "wife said no" card!!!!

    I was in a few music stores looking at strats,   new they cost 800 for an American one,  and 600 or so for a Chinese/Mexican one.    I went for the Jackson as they use to be all the rage back in the day when I lived with musicians going to school..   but truthfully for the music I'd like to learn and listen to,  a strat is a better fit,  or perhaps a Gibson SG.

    where are the good used guitar stores Scott?  8)



    VM:   yes I'll be limiting each connection to 5 megabits during peek hours and dynamic rate limiting on off hours.  It does seem a bit odd to run a firewall in a VM but not that uncommon.  Cisco does it with the ASA and ASR stuff I believe..  anyway no inbound connections to the host itself....  new way of thinking I guess.. 

    thanks !

  • 09/16/13--16:25: OpenIndiana in production?
  • By Anh Quach - Who's got OI 151a in production? 


    I've got a new deployment I'm working on that'll be just over Nexenta's free 18TB limit, so that's not an option. 
    Any feedback on OI good/bad greatly appreciated. 

    It's either that, or pay Oracle their support cost for Solaris 11.

  • 09/16/13--16:50: Odometer wipe so to speak
  • By Brian Krusic - Hi all,


    Does any one know how we can clear any stats located on the controller of a Seagate Fiber Channel drive?

    This is what I'm really doing here.

    I've 3 bad BlueArc fiber channel drives which are impossible to find.

    However I've located some drives having the same LSI part number and same specs which came out of an Enengio unit, prolly some kind of NetApp I'm guessing.

    At any rate, I swapped PCBs so that the new drives have the BlueArc firmware etc..., but its still showing as bad once inserted into my Titan 3200.

    It looks like I may need to wipe any dynamic data kept about the drive and was hoping some one could clue me in to either some BlueArc cli goodness that does so etc...?

    You know, some way to access the controller itself and remove any stats about the drive?
     
    Thanks in advance,

    - Brian

  • 09/18/13--07:20: Softimage on Centos
  • By Dave Goodbourn -

    OK I'm stumped! (and probably stupid!!) I've not run Softimage on a Centos box before only on Windows. If I run Softimage (2014) on a Centos 6.2 workstation with any nvidia drivers installed it crashes at the point of opening the netview for the first time only giving an error: Segmentation fault (core dumped).

    If I run it without any nvidia drivers installed it runs fine. I've tried a whole bunch of nvidia drivers but they all cause Softimage to crash.

    Any ideas on the solution? Or a way to run Softimage in verbose mode so I can work this out myself???

    I'm not worried about security, WiFi is outside the firewall.? But would like it to work reliably and I would like to be able to extend the network to cover all our office space.

    Would prefer to interconnect the devices by existing Cat5, not wifi, have them share and hand off the same network properly.? Though part of me is also thinking screw this WDS crap, just set the three up identically, same channel and let devices work it out.

    For a while I had an Apple (shudder) Airport-N and two Express-N's working OK (though one or more was always blinking about a WDS error).? But then I updated them and reconfigured them (again and again and again)... now if I connect all three together, even with WDS fully setup, it tends to kill the connection for all.? And I hate the proprietary crap software one has to use to config.? Plus I think their special Apple built-in obsolescence timer is either ringing or will soon.?

    Tried a good home 802.11AC router (Asus AC66U) but am underwhelmed by its reach and there are not really companion pieces (matching AC units from ASUS) for extending, plus it's unclear they'd support cabled (not wifi) interconnect.?

    So is there another solution that's not too much more than the $200 or so I'm looking to spend for a router and another $100 or so per repeater??

    The Unifi stuff is super nice and has some surprising features for the price. Quick setup, too.

    The other one I've been investigating - If you use an Astaro/Sophos UTM, they've got their own AP's that are controlled by the UTM, which seems convenient. Those run about $400 per AP I think.

    +1 for Ubiquity. We have 50+ of their Unifi Pro APs and the controller (free) runs on a VM. The APs are powered by PoE.

    Super affordable and has most of the features of the "enterprise" WiFi outfits.

    Been there. We were all apple AP's .


    Check out Ruckas Wireless

    ZERO issue since we implemented a year ago.

    They just work. No problems. No rebooting. Comes with some great software to help you plan where they need to go and adjust for the least amount of interference. Hand off works seamlessly walking around our building 20k sqft. We have 4 Units in LA to cover that. .In total its supporting as of right now 1000+ devices Between LA and BC offices.  Phones, Laptops and Ipads etc.  Authentication if you need it is seamless. Vlan support. Multi SSID etc. Any feature you want..pretty much Also you can track people via triangulation in the building to find out where that device is :) Very handy  :)
