Bits and pieces

Got several windows covered over with foil backed bubblepack today. Darker but much cooler. Started dismantling the metal shield around the woodburning stove and had to start moving stuff that has piled up around it and realized I needed to get the shelves up in the qhut first. Got to cut the uprights first. Need the metal to extend the roof of the porch on the south side of the trailer so I can move the tools and tables out from under the white shelter so I can move it. Bit by bit I get this elephant eaten…

Long day today and more to do tomorrow so am gonna call it one. Till then…

    Sounds like a sequential vortex to me. I know how THAT goes…

    Spent the day yesterday with the Apple guy, getting the new network going. Looks like it’s going to be more of a PITA to swap everyone over than I thought, mainly because I didn’t think through far enough to see the obvious. Oh, well, it’s nothing I haven’t done before, just this time it will be EVERYBODY. So I guess that means I will just have to come up with a plan, a method, and a schedule. I’m quite sure that by the time I do a couple of dozen, I’ll have it down pat for the other ~170. Job security, it is…

    The Apple guy ended up staying over due to a configuration problem dealing with Windoze. What a shock. He has a Macbook Pro that he has virtualization software on that is really amazing. I mean, I have heard (and hear) about virtualization, but I am going to have to give it a try REAL soon. When he hit this problem (or, more accurately, after he had been working on it for quite a while and realized he wasn’t going to get done yesterday) he made an image of the server he is configuring for us and took it with him when he went to get a hotel room. That way, he can mount the server in a virtual machine, and mount an XP image in another virtual machine, and keep right on trying things out without having to be there on our campus. Neat! I think if I want two (or more) OSes on one machine, that I will see about virtualizing all but one of them. He told me about several different ways to do it, and the advantages/disadvantages of them. I’ll have to give it a whirl….

    Well, gotta get going back for another day at the salt mines. Hope it’s cooler there today. Have a good one.
