I should of mentioned this last week, but we advertised my wife’s old car on CarSales and it sold in 7 days. Not bad going I thought.
Certain readers might not be aware, but my wife and I are expecting our first born in just over 5 weeks time.
We’ve managed to get the car seat installed, wash all baby clothes we’d purchased. In addition we have purchased everything that has been required and of course setup up the room for the baby.
I’d admit the time has gone pretty quickly. I am glad we are very well prepared and have managed to get everything done.
Getting pretty excited now.
It’s been an interesting week, thought I’d mention what happened. The week ended with me having to setup a CentOS 5.2 system and then install an application called Jira, which I continued to setup and tinker with today. Instructions not the greatest, but managed to get it configured in the end. Although it was a bit of a wrestle to get things running in a fashion that would be suitable for the end user.
When I left work, it was working. Although as of now it is not, so I suspect a team member probably stopped the apache and tomcat instances. Guess I will check when I get back to work on Monday.
Anyone in the world web recently come across any reasonable guides/tech notes on Solaris iostat usage and interpretation. Especially on hosts when Solaris Volume Manager (metastat) is in use on the host.
I want to find a resource I can read to help understand using iostat for troubleshooting.
Anyone in the wide world web with RHCE experence care to comment on a good RHCE book?
I am hoping to do a RHCE eventualy, but in the meantime I’d like to obtain a book and brush up on things to learn and expect. Been using Linux on and off for years, however not a big RedHat fan, so would need to get use the RedHat way of doing things.
OpenSolaris is not bad. I installed it and don’t mind it. Although what I didn’t like was the limited install ability to select what I want to be installed.
It’s possible I did it wrong, and you can do a custom type install. I guess I will look at it again in due time.
I certainly love some features. Containers for example.
So at this stage, the only thing that has let me down is the install (or lack of custom install).
Thought I’d share this. Hopefully others might find it of benefit. I am sure everyone will agree when I say that I despise those big commercial recruiters. Funny enough we shouldn’t tarnish them all with the same brush, as some good recruiters exist, it’s just knowing who. If your in a position to require a recruiter to find someone for your business, then I’d highly recommend you check out The Recruitment Alternative.
Take a look at the associated costs for them to find you someone vs that of those other places in the market place.
Just thought I’d share. Thanks.

While I was doing some research and extra reading. I came across the following on the Sun site.
Hope someone else finds it useful, as I certainly did. System Administration Commands reference guide is certainly handy.
