Finally got Solaris 11 to work under VMware Fusion (5.03) – add (or replace whatever is there) line to the “solaris 11.vmx” in the VMware solaris location: ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000” Works under bridged, at least! Now to engage the beast the Solaris has become over the years… hopefully dtrace will work well under the Real Thing.

everybody knows this is nowhere

Dromedaries are the one-humped variety, Bactrian have two. And as everyone knows, dromedaries rule, and Bactrian’s drool. They both spit, though. My favorite line from my very last DARPA proposal. More in a bit, insanely busy!

Thanks to my IPMI paper sucking my life away I’m behind schedule, but it was always an excuse to play with and understand the tech, not make money.  Well, it’s not like I’m a monk, I like money, but there […]

DARPA, how great art thou

I should be singing hymns or something to DARPA – the fast track program is truly amazing, or at least it has been to me. I submitted a 2nd proposal (details upcoming) and it got accepted in less than 48 hours.  Startups don’t even move that fast! Another 6 months of livelihood.  If they only gave out insurance….
