5 Years Old - Quinquennial Anniversary!

Relates to Blogging

While completing the Survey 2008 I noticed that this weblog has now surpassed the five year mark and in fact the wooden anniversary on July 1st slipped by without a mention. So here are a few quick words to toast our Quinquennial celebration - five years of blogging.

Input to this weblog has not been as enthusiastic and regular since the Winter of 2005. As I entered 2006 my priorities moved to new horizons and the future family that I am now lucky enough to share my life with. I was also feeling despondent with the attitude of the web community and blogging fraternity in general (a view recently shared in part by new media guru Justin Calacanis). In 2006 hand-rolled blogging software was becoming a thing of the past with the rapid advancement of numerous publishing systems and the volume of web-centric blogs increased as their quality decreased. There was rarely enough time in the day to both dissect the important information and share my own thoughts and knowledge.

While I cannot guarantee I will ever return to the volume of postings I once offered I would like to think I can keep this weblog alive and generate enough interest from a few valuable entries that will keep you coming back for more.

So with five years under my belt it is onwards and upwards. Who knows what the future will hold but I know it will never cease to be exciting..!

Everything's Gone Virtual!

Relates to Operating Systems and UNIX

Firstly apologies to anyone who has felt the urge to follow my blog with such a sporadic posting of entries over the last 18 months. Becoming a dad has compelled me to reassign my priorities and blogging time has really been under the kosh.

Anyway, time is of the essence so I must not ramble. Virtualization is the name of the game currently and I have been hard at work and play test driving a broad array of Linux platforms on both a Windows Vista host and a Tiger host. Since last posting my excitement at discovering VMWare Player back in May I have upgraded to Fusion and Workstation and started building virtual operating systems from scratch using ISO boot disks. I have one goal in mind and that is to create my development nirvana - a perfect setup of multiple displays and desktops that will allow me to meet my objectives in the quickest possible time using the minimum number of actual platforms.

I will come back to this in the coming weeks and discuss what desktops and operating systems I have gone for. Watch this space…
