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).

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

Why Greens, why?!?

Adam Bandt, you are a complete and utter twit — I didn’t think it was possible to be more alarmist and moronic than Bob Brown, but you’ve achieved that with vigour!

I cannot fathom why some people support this idiot:

I’m not a cilmate sceptic.  I’m not a hater of change.  I want our “green-aware” political party to be effectual, wonderous and all-planet-saving, but… why these two clowns?!?

If they simply portrayed some level of mature intelligence, and stopped with the alarmist, sensationalist crap, my vote would be bolting toward them.

I have to say, apart from the very, very deep and obvious hated embedded in this post, I do agree with the hazard burning (being that my own father is in the bush), and the meme is just gold.
