One more thing....

OS X Leopard.

I finally got it up and running properly and wholly in a VMWare Workstation install. I followed the rather simple instructions available here: . You'll need an ID on the board there if you want the pictures and such to show up, as well as to download the PDF files, which are necessary to get this working. However, when it's working, it's awesome that you can get OSX to run on a Windows box. It doesn't support Snowleopard yet, tragically, but at least you can get the previous version working.

Overclocking milestone

lj-mood: accomplished

I know, I know, it's silly and utterly pointless. Tonight, while rebooting yet again, I achieved my first O/C milestone of needing to boost system voltage to make it stable under an overclock load. Thank goodness I finally got around to installing the Zalman 9700 Ultra Quiet Cooling system I got months ago at a local computer store closeout sale. Even overclocked, the software monitor reads that the CPU temp is running at 12C. It's so silly it makes me giggle.

EDIT: Oh, yes, it's also very, very amusing to have a system that I now have to take it on faith that the BIOS load happened correctly. My monitor doesn't even have time to react and shift from a red to blue light to indicate there was activity before the GRUB menu pops up. I LOVE it. ;)

DNS woes resolved!

Feel the power ..... of Attorney!!

So I finally figured out what seemed to be the issue of my domain no longer responding nor seeming to be registered ANYwhere on the 'nets. Turns out it's relatively important to make sure you keep a valid host name in the zone record for the outside world. If the SOA line doesn't have such a valid host name, curiously no server will really know where to look for the rest of the record, including the machine it's all hosted on. So, problem solved, weeks of frustration resolved though displeasurably so as this was a simple fucking thing to work on, and resolve, and apparently to overlook as well. Now to just get Courier completely configured as the MTA of choice on this bad boy, with the MySQL interface as well, so I can get my receipt of mail working properly again, and then the webmail interface working and I'll be done with the server.

Well, once the fix for Samba 3.0.28a's little problems rolls out, and I'll be able to actually use the 'force-user' and 'force-group' options properly again in the configure file.

To follow up the Narnia entry of non-bitching and moaning....

For those of you geeks out there that want/need extra hard drive space, right now Fry's is selling a 750GB drive (OEM so no box or cables) SATA-II by Samsung with 32MB cache for $109. Helluva deal if you need it!
