Techy Fun: When I ask you to do something, do it

August 6th, 2007

As I’m in the process of slowing shutting down other sites I’ve worked on (due to time constraints), I’m reposting them here. Here’s an article from “Behind The Frontline” which was going to be a cross between I Work With Fools, Worse Than Failure and Dilbert.

We recently had a piece of equipment which when I plugged it in, it fused the power supply turning all the electricity to the building off. Anyway, I have a look at it and replace its own fuse. Just before I plugged it in again, I asked everybody to make sure they’ve saved their work. Everybody says “OK” so I plug it back in and it turns the power off again (obviously faulty then). Then somebody moans “But I didn’t save my work…”

Techy: Installing YUM into a Virtuozzo Virtual Environment

August 6th, 2007

Quick note for my future reference:

To install YUM (the replacement for RedHat’s up2date package manage) into a Virtuozzo Virtual Machine/VM/Virtual Environment/VE, just log in to the hardware node and issue the command:

vzpkg install 106 -p yum

where 106 is the number of the virtual machine you wish to install yum into.

Peon: “Hi, I called last week – do you remember me”
Me: “I handle over 50 calls a day from several thousand customers along with a number of helpdesk tickets from all sorts of strange people. You do NOT want to be the one person I remember a week later…”

(I haven’t said that yet, but there’s still time 😉 )
