Installed Mountain Lion for a look on weekend. Certainly different.
Didn’t use it long enough to draw any sort of opinion just yet, so will keep playing around. The first thing I do remember seeing was the way files are now displayed during file copy process using Finder was good. I quite liked this so far.
Still not having much luck with getting Windows Server 2012 to boot under VMware Workstation 8. The failure during booting it in a Virtual Machine is below.
A little annoying to say the least. I’ll eventually work it out I am sure, have tried a number of the suggested workarounds and nothing has worked so far. I guess I will get more motivated eventually.
I downloaded the Windows Server 2012 RC and can’t even get it to boot in VMware Workstation 8.
Not figured out why yet, but will have to do more research. Really want to take a peek to see what’s new.
It would appear CentOS 5.8 is now available. Go get it.
Finally got around to putting XBMC back on my ATV2 unit. Some of the plugins available are great. i.e. ABC iView etc. Not to mention MythBox and a few others.
Just so I dont forget some things the next time I am going to jot them down.
Configuration files at /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata, namely sources.xml showing a sample smb(cifs) share.
While reading my rss feeds, I saw someone mentioned BURP – Backup and Restore Program for linux.
I am going to make the time to check it out, as it to run in phases similar to what CommVault Simpana does. i.e. Scan Phase and Data Phase.
If you run Simpana 9.0 and have some issues backing up Windows System State via CentOS/RHEL 6.2 MediaAgents, don’t fear SP5a will fix some quirks.
I had an issue matching the above and seems it will be resolved in SP5a (when released). If you have any issues, I recommend opening a support ticket with CommVault to have it checked out.
If you need to setup Ubuntu 11.10 host as an iscsi client, check out the documentation here on how to do it.
All very easy to perform. Great to see some excellent documentation from the Ubuntu documentation teams.
My lovely wife purchased me a copy of COD Modern Warfare 3 for PC. So I will install this when I get home.
Currently visiting wife’s parents in country NSW.
I will be curious to see how game plays in multiplayer mode to be honest. Will give me the chance to compare it to Battlefield 3.
If you own a Kogan TV which has the PVR feature built in, did you know you can take those recordings and convert them into mpeg streams and/or other formats post removing of adverts on Mac OSX.
You’ve already recorded the program on your Kogan TV using the PVR feature. Now take the external drive used to record on and connect to the Macintosh. Copy the *.TS file from the media and place somewhere. I like to create a folder. Once copied, you can eject the media from the Macintosh.
ProjectX is now used to demux the *.TS (transport stream) file and this will produce some additional files. The two important ones are *.mp* and *.mp*.
Using MPEG Streamclip open the *.mpv file, now you can cut out the adverts and anything else, so your only got the program you want minus all the extra stuff. Use save as to save out the finished product. This will save out a *.mpeg file which can now be used to convert into other formats as required with other tools. i.e. ffmpegx etc.
