» KVM Virtualization: Start VNC Remote Access For Guest Operating Systems. I used the hell out of this on a recent project, needed to keep it bookmarked. #
» Duty Free and Carry-On baggage. A tiny tiny touch of sanity in the idiocy of the TSA.
As of January 31, 2014, passengers traveling internationally into the U.S. and connecting to another flight are allowed to have in their carry-on baggage liquids in excess of 3.4 ounces (100 mL) that were purchased as duty-free merchandise. This only applies to products purchased in duty-free stores, placed in an intact designated secure, tamper-evident bag, and successfully screened and cleared by TSA officers. Scanning may not be effective for liquids in opaque, ceramic, or metallic bottles, or other containers. Liquids that cannot be screened and cleared will not be allowed to remain in carry-on baggage. Customers may choose to place these items into checked baggage or throw them away.#
» Handling virtual machine files on Linux. I've been working on rsyncing and having issues, then I found compressing sparse file(s) while still maintaining their holes and had really good luck with the tar command: "tar -Sczvf sparse.img.tgz sparse.img" Knocked it down to 1/5 the size on disk and should let me download what I need in a couple of hours. #
» It’s Not Travel Photography, But Photographing Travelers May Be Photography’s Next Big Thing. Back in 1983 when I was a kid my family took a trip to Hawaii. There was a photographer wandering the beach with a couple of parrots, he took your photos and then you could pick them up the next day, so I don't think this is necessarily a new idea but the scope and "journalism" angle makes it fresh. #
» What Sbarro's Woes Say About Where We Get Our Fast Food Now. I went through the food court of our local mall a few weeks ago and was shocked to find only 3 food places still open. Among the gone was the Sbarro's, which was a surprise, in a mall food court I've never seen them not be busy. #
» Expanding a KVM guest disk image using virt-resize. Good to know. #
» Two photos from the plane heading to Houston. A sunset, and then just a few minutes later... Both are sized for desktop wallpapers if you'd like to use them.
» KVM Console Access. Came in very handy today, for some reason after 30 seconds my VNC screens just went grey (they still accepted input but I couldn't see anything at all, makes it hard to configure a network...) #
» Two recipes I will absolutely be making again:
» I'm thinking jerky may be the next cupcakes? Not that there's jerky shops opening (well, not in actual storefronts, but we've all seen the side of the road sellers haven't we?) But it does appear your choices online are growing, here's two that look good: Big John's Beef Jerky and Lawless Jerky. Or you can use the Alton Brown jerky recipe and just make your own. #
» Have Your Own 'Summer Of Love' In VW-Style Camper Trailer. Pretty cool. #
