Here is some pictures from Port Stephens – Day 2. It was a very hot day and extremely windy. Unfortunately the day was marked by some terrible fires here in the region.
As per my previous post here. I got it all installed and most things work as expected, however I just cant bring myself to keep it. As some features don’t work like wake on lan etc.
So it was a short lived installation, however very impressed with what has been done to allow it to be possible to install.
I guess it suits some people, however just doesn’t suit me with the limitations.
It appears I am still having MediaWiki page edit issues on my shared hosting provider. It appears that when you edit a page (can be any page) and insert the wiki syntax for the page. When you attempt to save it, something must be going wrong with the parsing of the content, as the edit of the page will fail as per the screen grab below.
Unable to resolve this, and do not want to waste any more time on resolving it. No errors are even displayed in error logs for the web server itself and the permissions are fine.
I recently bought an Intel Ivy i3 3225 processor, along with a few other items. Will expand on the other items towards the end of the post.
The reason for the purchase is I wished to build another machine for some lighter duties, as I had been using my nearly 2 year old Intel Sandy i5 2400 for such work, however since it’s primary role is for gaming, it tends to generate a bit of heat. It does after all have a GTX670 video card in it.
I did want to get one of the new low power processors, but the i3 3225 came up for a good price. Glad I purchased it as the machine when built is operating nicely, the processor with the on-board Intel HD 4000 video does everything I need.
Completed both CommVault Specialist tracks yesterday. Disaster Recovery and Storage. I am sure I still have plenty to learn, so will continue to develop my knowledge and skills.

After several weeks of reading, I have just about completed the book. Although I have already started doing prac tests and revision. In fact I’ve also already booked the exam. As I am confident enough to pass it. Although I just need to put in a bit more time doing some simulation review.
Like all humans, I too am scared of failure. But if I don’t attempt the exam, I may just put it off and off. So while they have that promotion on currently with a 2nd shot free, I might as well try.
Exam booked for 19th April. So ready or not, it will be an attempt. I am tempted to purchase a 70-622 book and do it next, then go do my 70-680 Windows 7 config as planned. Not sure yet. Will do the exam and then decide next action. Enjoyed reading the book though, and honestly learnt things about Windows Vista I probably never really understood. So win nonetheless I think.
Managed to make some time to get the Traxxas Revo 2.5R out today. Thanks to my wife, she managed to capture the following clips for me to upload. The car was very dirty at the end of it. I reckon a few weeks of this and then it will be time for a rebuild.
