Internet…

We recently had a festa in Barcelonetta and some bright spark decided to use the local telephone exchange box in the piazza as the place to attach their firework display.

The end result was a great fireworks show and the box melting, frying the cables and fusing the wires.  The end result being no telephone or internet for 80% of the community in this part of town.  The trunk for my street has just been laid and connected – so I’m back online and picking up mails at last.

VirtualBox – Virtual Machine Client

I looked around and tried various VM Clients before finding one that suited my needs.  I wanted something free, actively developed and a forum that was active (there’s always teething problems).  Ideally they embraced the OVF standard for VM’s and supported the “in-development” OS’s from both MS and the Open Source Community — in the end there was only one choice – VirtualBox

One of the great things about the VirtualBox client is that it supports headless virtual machine and implements an RDP interface to them.  Allowing you to easily connect & control it from both Windows and *nix.

Just point the RDP client to the IP Address of VM Host & using the port displayed – you essentially have a console connection to it.  There’s some handy extras like clipboard and folder sharing, private networks and dynamic virtual HD’s.
