Techno, tech, and life

Author: Jason Page 2 of 5

I love technology, and have been involved with it for over thirty years. I'm a IT manager, a seasoned network, storage, Unix and virtualisation guy. I love to code (mmm, sweet sweet Python), and I django, SQLalchemy, Eve and pytest when I'm behaving. I'm also a DJ, and photographer.

Oh packets, where are ewe?

One of the top five saddest outputs from a Unix prompt:

tcpdump: Command not found.

Mini tip: gvim on Windows, ^Z

Just stumbled upon this by accident, and it’s no massive thing… but a ^Z will minimise the gvim window, at least in the MS Windows version.

I have failed. Still, after all these years, I neither cannot picture how doves cry, nor what it sounds like. #prince

Infoblox, IPAM tools, SDN and FUD

I ran across an blog opinion piece last night around Infoblox and their product suite — specifically proclaiming that both were headed for the graveyard, due to those two magical and overused terms, “cloud” and “SDN”.

It’s an interesting article, weaving together an apparent direct correlation between their stock price, and the relevance of generic IPAM tools.  I found it mostly speculative, which is strange because I usually find EtherialMind an ok read.  My article centres around his comments on IPAM and DNS (not their other stuff).

Safe driving ad without the gore

Note to Australian government and advertisers: it doesn’t have to be gory and horrific to have shock value.  Well done, Volkswagen!
