Desertion

by tmcd35 on 5th June 2009 at 08:02 PM
I haven't posted here for a while and there's a good (or bad depending how you look at it) reason.

I've deserted. I'm expecting Dos_Box to put a bounty out on me and have me shot at dawn

The blog as been moved and is now in full rant over at...

NetBSD

by tmcd35 on 23rd May 2009 at 04:16 PM
I've been playing around with this for a while. I must say as an OS - I like it! It feels somewhat uncomplicated compared to other *nix's.

Today I'm going for a fresh install of NetBSD 5 and see what I can get out of it. Wish me luck!

The Platform
Nice and simple - VMWare Fusion 2.x (whatever the latest is). 1 Core (from a 2.16Ghz Core Duo) and 768mb Ram. Hard Drive is 15Gb pre allocated.

A word on the hard drive. I've noticed with previous

Slow day at the office

by tmcd35 on 22nd May 2009 at 04:56 PM
A few small jobs to report on, this time nothing Mutliseat related ( ).

Office XP SP3

I'm not going to detail the process here since only out of date institutions like ours are still using this and if you really need the instructions are all over the net (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832671). But, boy what a palaver! I thought I'd have to attach a update or to to the MSI deployment in GPO. Instead I had to unpack the update and tap in a pretty long command

Comparing Specs

by tmcd35 on 21st May 2009 at 09:18 PM
So, I've placed the orders for my two Multiseat systems. Both machines will be self built. I've not ordered TFT's this time as I'm refurbing Lab1 over the summer and some of the old TFT's from their will be used with these two systems.

Before I give the specs for the two Multiseats, I thought I'd share the specs of the front runner desktop I'm considering for Lab1.

Room 1 - Desktop
Acer Veritron L410
  • USFF Chassis
  • AMD Athlon X2 4400 (2.3Ghz Dual

Multiseat Computing

by tmcd35 on 19th May 2009 at 11:33 PM
[ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiseat[/ame]

Every geek has an area of computing that 'does it' for them. For some it's programming and the beauty in finding the most efficient algorithm to a particular problem. For others it's the use of a particular operating system and the challenge of optimising it to a particular solution. For me it's virtualisation.

Virtualisation in itself is nothing new. The basics of the idea date back to early Mainframes with tens
