If all your VMWare Server hosted images' networks suddenly become unable to bridge....

....then go into network host settings and disable all inappropriate networks (e.g. Hamachi, etc) from being used for bridging!

Having installed a USB-Skype cordless phone for the office yesterday we suddenly had a shed-load of IP address conflicts from the image servers on the network. Since, we had recently had some other trouble with the routers (for some bizarre reasons we have a chain of them!) I spent most of the time going through all their settings (which actually also turned up a few problems that were then solved) but unfortunately only succeeded in increasing my frustration with the ongoing issue at hand. Arrggghhhh!

However, after a good night's sleep my googl'ing powers were refreshed and I found this hint which led me rapidly to the solution. :-) I'm slowing down in my old age, I tell ya.

Hole in the Wall

A very cool project - call me soppy if you want, but I felt gladdened whilst watching this.

WSD as a stepping stone to GTD

Awesome (WSD - an idea whose time has definitely come) - A baby step for people having trouble getting organised (GTD-style).

New Year's Resolutions March 31st Results

My New Year's resolutions now stand at 5% achievement (down 1% from 4 weeks ago). 95% to go!! :-(
  • My typing regressed somewhat - presumably because I haven't made any effort on it over the last few weeks.
  • My finances went up a bit beyond where they started.
  • My fitness is a little better, but didn't improve quite as much as I was hoping for.
  • My bodyfat percentage is basically back to where it started.

Overall, I put this down to an extremely busy past 3 weeks, where exercise, diet, etc (incl blogging) have been pushed aside for work. Thankfully, that wave has been ridden now and normal programming should soon resume.
