New old toys.

Installed Solaris 10 on my Dell PowerEdge 1400SC the other day. Just got around to logging into it. Man, I don't remember anything about Solaris except ps -ef. Pretty sad. It took a damn long time to get installed, and did not enjoy playing with my cheaper, far more generic, bitch system. Had to swap the PE out of being a fileserver so I could get Solaris installed.

Going to be playing with the Sun LDAP server, methinks. If Solaris Zones actually did virtualization, I would consider using them for some virtual server stuff I'm going to need to do, but pity, they aren't. Still, they're pretty awesome. I just don't know what I'd want to give someone a shell on a Solaris box for. ;-)

Image inspires fear...of executives leading employees down rapids...and of tight gray and pink pants.

It's freakin' creepy, innit? If any of my bosses tried to get me to go out on a "retreat" in the wilderness and those were the clothes we'd have to wear, I'd call the cops.
