[1 Ne. 3] Of stoves being left on

Herein is the first traditional nugget from the narrative as focused on in the Doctrine of Correlation. Second only to 1 Nephi 1:1 in repetitive utterances in repetition, 1 Nephi 3:7 rears it’s bane-of-seminarian’s head. The angst commonly associated is a procedural one, from not applying context. That context is found in the astronomically distant […]

[1 Ne. 2] Road to Camp Gra’nada

Nibley alone’s probably spent a good thousand pages per verse for the first half of the chapter commentating about how the narrative fits the locale and culture and linguistic forms. As not all have punched their ticket with Twain and his Innocents Abroad, those nuances are lost on the casual reader. Suffice it to say […]

[1 Ne. 1] And what to do about it

[Link] In most any application of The Hero’s Journey, there is an early stupor of innocence in ignorance. There ideally though is a dualistic spark to begin said journey. It’s not any wonder then that there is set an initial pattern of coexistent inspiration and initiative, to be repeated and emphasized and applied.


[Intro] Skipping ahead, or not

So there’s this book that exists. And that is the conundrum. It sits there minding its own business. Actually, not even that, it is just a bleached dead tree, or electrified blob of sand. But what to do about it? Why can’t we leave it alone?


Adding ClonezillaSE/DRBL to an existing Windows AD environment

Once again, nobody has all the parts and pieces in one location. Verify that the system has two NIC’s. Issue is DRBL myopia Install and update Centos 6.x as normal Install DRBL/Clonezilla per STOP dhcpd IMMEDIATELY! After drblpush and dcs, do ‘/opt/drbl/sbin/mknic-nbi –check-server-name n‘ to allow any DHCP to pxeboot clients Create DNS records for […]

Time for time

Time servers send out an epoch pulse with descriptive data. Time clients then transpose that based on locally configured offsets. Windows runs everything through AD, including the time for AD. The official schpiel from Redmond is “Make sure the hardware clock on your AD Forest PDC is set correctly.” Wut? Most important factor is one […]

Windows DAV client note

Windows uses the local appdata temp folder, specifically TfsStore\Tfs_Data for the local service account to do its temp storage of DAV data in transit. Make sure your Windows system drive has enough space plus extra for all anticipated concurrent traffic. C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Temp\TfsStore\Tfs_DAV

Slap’d SMB services

Yet again the internets fail. I have simple requirements, and I can’t get simple answers. Manage accounts via LDAP (outside of AD for various reasons) Provide file services against LDAP accounts Set access controls and log everything No one site has all the answers, nor do they hint what parts are missing. This is how […]

I c ur myopia

Well now this certainly didn’t come from RIM… Hilmar also commented that after a decade of running CCP he had heard so much naysaying (a team of noobs making a computer game in Iceland is never going to work, it will never work to make everyone play on the same server, you’ll never get more than 200.000 […]
