haha, haha, Finally, we are rocking with that major project we were all working on. It is a very complex beast, which ultimately will rest with the users. Even the architecture of the product is complex. Boy, i miss the simple database and vb client solution!! That enterprise scenario consists of database, application server, web server, load balancer, mobile server,datawarehouse.. The good news, is that we are using linux albeit oracle flavor as the core apps...

Cornficker -- aka Configure.

It was love at first sight. It has been some time that i have not gone through the code of some badass malware. Cornficker, has been brilliantly written and designed. But make not mistake, this baby probably can bring the whole net on its knees with a couple of keystroke probably coming from germany or eastern europe. I was particularly impressed by the fact that these guys are cutting edge with encryption..They are using md6..dude, and it is not even ratified. the peer to peer is a bit over my head at this stage, i will get a demo up and check the eco-system behavior.

Cisco VPN

Guys, i am having a lot of issue with the cisco 4.x vn client on vista. I have discovered a number of things.

we do not need a lot of item over ethernet adapter, 'bonjour' from apple obtained from itune is well damm bad.

vmware needs to be unassociated from the cisco vpn adapter

sometimes we need to repair the adpater which to be always in a disable mode.

several items have to be disable namely ipv5, vmware, etc..

Ace 4710

We will be playing with that device soon. It will be used to do load balancing over Oracle apps server. The objective is to go onto an active-active topo. what a waste of having apps and licenses not being used in an active-passice topo.

Bombs Away !

One PM has left the project. I am gutted, she was good at she was doing. We don't get specialist on WMS and OPM on the island that easily.

American Gods.

This book albeit a scifi in some sense, is just more than that. It is a mythological and historical lanscaping of the american myth. It requires some 'erudite' knowledge of world history. Neil Gaiman, is a good author, the book is well written, intelligent, astute and somewhat melancolic. It is a goodbye to the old world and a wlecome to the new world, but only to certain extent. Is shadow the 'king' ? I am not sure, but he is merely someone who is honest enough to the whole world. The wifey role is well tantalising, this is love beyond the grave. But, the icing on the cake is how she died with a **** in her *****... for well, friendship sake. Anansi and czenogord are excellent characters who gaiman will need to develop in the spinoff..or is this already so..?

Oracle R12.

I have installed Oracle R12 on a LInux box. Well, if you call that box.. It is a PC with a single core celeron 3Ghz , 2 GB RAM, 250Gb SATA drive. I downloaded both the Oracle Version R5 from and then the R12 version from I installed the x64 version. The speed is ok and so does the patching. Please do note that although it is an oracle version of linux (unbreakable) i strongly recommend that you read the metalink ID:416305.1

what is important after install is getting these patch in.. I spent some time with a bug of the java client not coming up as the openmotif library was not up to standard.

Peter Hamilton..

I have finished the dreaming void book of peter hamilton. A good yarn, but it is not a space opera. it seems to me that the inigo's saga is more an inward looking book on how to write a medieval book on politics whilst doing a scifi space opera. But save for the very long chapter on salrana, kristabel and the 'waterwalker' and mates, the book does have some astute ideas. in a nutshell, the void is an X dimension which acts as a virtual reality endgame whilst consuming world as power source i.e. E=MC2...

Got my hand on a wii modded for christmas.

Nice machine, not powerful but the play model of the wiimote is a different experience in itself. I am working on what type of mods was place on the station.

The good news is that finally after 35 years, i managed to held a lightsaber and thrash some items.

i will post some simple hacks on how to program next week.
