Just found a project that has a number of premade Sun xVM VirtualBox images at http://virtualbox.wordpress.com (and associated SourceForge project http://sourceforge.net/projects/virtualboximage).
I’ve been wondering about the logic of surfing @ Lyall Bay with a storm water drain discharging funkwater from the surrounding industrial area. The swell is usually running around the time of a southerly storm – so is the drain due to the associated rainfall… I’d noted that I was getting sick sometimes after surfing… Checking […]
This story hit a little while back @ http://www.stuff.co.nz/4711431a23918.html : Greater Wellington regional council is considering a bylaw that would make parts of the Wellington beach off-limits to anyone other than swimmers or body-boarders. But seriously - where’s our artificial surf reef?
Projects such as ReactOS, Wine and LUK (Linux Unified Kernel – mostly Chinese language material) look viable as a basis for a WIN32-compatible virtual appliance. I’m hoping a liteweight and headless ReactOS exists… just needs to be found
I’d always thought that Singularity might make an interesting managed-code virtual appliance alternative to a Mono-deployment on a JeOS distro, however the license makes this idea a non-starter. Two promising alternatives exist: Cosmos - there is a chunk of work yet to be completed – however I like the lego metaphor! See the Virtual PC example (for an earlier Cosmos build) here. SharpOS – […]
So I’ve been looking at the various Just Enough OS (JeOS) options that are optimized for virtualization purposes - primarily to see what currently works under the MS VHD-based virtualization hosts (who knows about Windows 7 though…), using Virtual PC 2007 as the compatibility baseline. I’ve also taken Sun xVM VirtualBox 2.0 out for a spin on some […]
As a stumbling amateur “stacking assisted” astrophotographer, I’ve looked to a number of sites online for guidance. And whilst I’ve used a few software packages, I’ve settled on having to get across IRIS and so most of the sites I come across are slanted in that direction. The following is primarily a list of sites that I’ve found […]
