Here’s something something I did just recently :)
I just had it inside of my head for too long. Been thinking about it from every aspect of our everyday life. One day I wake up, and said “let’s do this”

Nov 4. 2008 Edit

Over night people just started coming from somewhere and viewing this video, so last time I check it was somewhere on ~10.000 views, and over night it’s ~25.000 views I really don’t know where they are coming from … but yea.

Busy update 2.0

I just wanted to let you know that I’ve written an email user login, because a lot of people wanted mail at foolcontrol.org.

I’m done with first semester of my university, so I’ll have time to post all the posts I wanted. This was also a “prolonged process” because I got arrested few nights ago, I’ll talk about that too in a separate post. I’m innocent for those who wonder.

I’m currently writing register email form, and I want to finish this whole thing, but now once I got time, it’ll definitely be completed. Soon that is.

I also got few topics I want to discuss, from KDE4 release to various other interesting topics.

After awhile, hello everybody :)

It’s been awhile, a big update :)
Basically what I want you to know is that, this is going to be a new home for AbsintheSyringe blog. So that basically means that I’m moving from blogspot to my own server, and to my own platform. All old posts are here so …

Thanks Google for hosting it, and really blogspot was not bad at all.

Right now, I’m working on building a platform, it’s basically a heavy modification of WordPress system. But I gotta do what I gotta do, also besides just my blog there will be a lot more … I just had some ideas ;)

So stick around, also this is not even 25% complete so … there’ll be a lot of changes to all of this stuff. And this post just to let you guys know what’s going on and that I didn’t have a new life threating accident or anything :)

Regards,

HowTo: VMware 2.6.22.x kernel – Debian Lenny

I really need Windows, I actually need to simulate “Server environment” and “Client environment”, I have 3 notebooks in my household but I’m not sure they came along with “Design for Windows” stickers :)

VirtualBox … very very good piece, incredible actually. But from a official (resp) source, on Debian testing my usb controllers are not working. This is huge huge minus if you ask me. VMware Workstation 6.x is great, everything works, but … I have an issue with them.

Problem with VMware is that, they release their product, and if you’re on any “newer” kernel, please note, not latest testing or development branch, but official stable kernel is not supported. That’s why they have their “vmware-any-any patch” which is not even their thing, but is written by some “random guy”.

I have 3 kernels on this machine. 2.6.18-4, 2.6.18-5 and 2.6.22-2, problem is that VMware will not working with 2.6.22.x even tho latest stable linux kernel is 2.6.23.9. Of course everything worked fine on 2.6.18, but I’m long time of that kernel. Moving back to 2.6.18 was just not an option.

I tried (literally) 1000 “combinations”, from different vmware-any-any patch versions, to different compiling methods, to make-vmpkg to 101 and thing, nothing worked. Until today I did this completely random thing and everything worked. So if you’re on any distro with >=2.6.22 kernel, do this to make your vmware work.

For all the IT Crowd outhere

Perfect soundtrack for this post would be “Chimaira – Implements of Destruction” so in case you got that one by any chance, play it along while reading this post.

I’ve been working at my University for some 20days now, it’s incredible how much stuff there’s going around. I had to cancel some really nice paying jobs, of course due to lack of time.

Besides University and University job, I got Cisco going around :)

It’s interesting how stuff can turn around. For example, once I was administering and leading whole Abshost thing, after 3 years I didn’t get fed up with it all. I was on a mission, on a mission of working same things as seen on “IT Crowd“. After Abshost I said, I don’t wanna just administer any longer, I wanna feel the pulse of the signal through my own hands, I wanna have a screwdriver in my back pocket, I wanna grow farms … bla bla.

Reality is … well I know how much people can be asses and all that. You try to be good, act nice too they act completely opposite, they spit into your face. But that’s nothing compared to when you reinstall and wire whole computer lab of one university, even bring basic p2p in. They wanna stab you in the face, but why? Hm … read the last sentence again, “reinstall” is the keyword needed in this context :) Even they have all the rules of keeping their own backups and all, they hate you.
