Solaris Update, Hardware Photos, SMF Manifests, Nagios Plugins

So in the past weekend, I had my first real experience with Solaris in production. I finally setup my Sun Blade 150 running Solaris 10 as my new mailserver, replacing a (!!!) vintage 1998 Gateway Pentium II 350MHz desktop.

openEPCR

I’ve been toying around for a while with the idea of creating a software package for handling Electronic Patient Care Reports for EMS (Emergency Medical Services) agencies. There are a few popular packages around, but most of them are web-based. In the event of a disaster - or even bad ...

SunBlade Workstations

So today I picked up two surplus SunBlade 150 workstations. The price seemed right, and I figure that at the very least, they’d give me some Sparc machines to play around with. The two seem slightly different. Externally, one has a CD-RW and one has a DVD-ROM ...

Tech - Updates

First of all, until I decide on either splitting my blog, or setting up separate ‘channels’ for personal and technical stuff, I’ll annotate the difference in post titles.

So I have a few days of sanity - the last week of classes - before exam time. Hopefully I’ll wrap some ...
