VMware’s Fully Featured HTML5-based vSphere Client Coming in Fall 2018

Saturday, May 12th, 2018

Many of you have been asking when will the vSphere Client become fully featured. We are targeting to deliver to you a fully featured version of the vSphere Client later this year, in Fall 2018.

It is really sad to see that VMware is still not listening to what their customers want (link #1 & link #2). People just want the legacy C# client back.


miao R.I.P (2006 – 2016)

Saturday, July 23rd, 2016

It is official, miao is no longer with us.

I originally installed it on May 7th 2006 so it was running for about 10 years until it died!

After more than three years, it’s time to update my knowledge base design… 🙂


What do I think about Facebook’s “Rooms”?

Friday, October 24th, 2014

In short: Nice idea, not so good implementation.

Nice idea: welcome back, 1988! IRC anyone?

The Implementation:
1) Scan a qrcode in order to join a room, seriously?
2) Where is /list?
3) Why nickname is only unique per room? people can use other people’s nicknames and impersonate them on other rooms…
4) Where is the android client?
5) Why does it require IOS 7?
6) Why is it only available on the US apple store?

Really disappointing.

On the other hand, you can always connect to DALnet 🙂

New fedora mirror

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

Good to see our new fedora mirror is up and running.

Too bad ubuntu are much slower.


Google Apps issues

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

~1 hour after the issue started – Google: “This issue is affecting less than an estimated 0.024% of the Gmail user base”
~4 hours after the issue started – Google: “The email delays are affecting less than 50% of Gmail users”

Google, maybe you’re great with math but your support sucks big time.


SysAid is installed!

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

We just replaced our old helpdesk system (manageengine’s servicedesk) with SysAid 9.1.01 RC2 (b69).

I really like the new UI. The installation went smoothly, the only issue was with the script that I had to dos2unix.


bye bye TMG :(

Damn it, ISA/TMG (Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server / Forefront Threat Management Gateway) was one of the (few?) Microsoft products I actually liked, it is sad Microsoft has decided to kill it.


An interesting post from Hal Berenson:


C > Java

Thursday, April 19th, 2012



It took some time but Java’s long term downward trend line finally crosses C’s stable (almost flat) popularity line. Although it is expected that Java will not decline much further due to the popularity of the Android platform, C is able to remain number one for at least another couple of months. This can be concluded by looking at the extrapolation of moving averages for both languages.
