VIClient Anyone ?

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netzwerk, windows

The vmware-server is a very easy method to do virtualization at home.
But the web interface is not ver y easy to operate

May I offer a solution ?
At the linuxversion, there is at
vmware-server-distrib\lib\hostd\docroot\client
a
VMware-viclient.exe
Install this and you have an easy to operate client.

dnsblacklists

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netzwerk, Weltgeschehen, windows

What are DNS blacklists ?
This are special namesserver returning spamming servers instead of DNS Records.
The advantages are fast updaterate and the availability. And its works everywhere where DNS is working.

Is my server on a blacklist ? .
You need a DNS query with a special syntax ( with the IP of blog.hlawatsch.org and the dnsblacklist of heise.de [¹] as example) :
the IP: 217.10.14.27
the query
host 27.14.10.217.ix.dnsbl.manitu.net

your server is blacklisted if the returned answer contains localhost.
youre server isn’t blacklisted if the returned answer is empty.

A solution for the White screen of death on my Samsung NC10 Netbook

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netbook, windows

I’m a victim of the White Screen of Death with the Samsung NC10 Netbook, too [¹]. After many tries I’m shure I found a workaround working for at least 24h.
It seems that the error depends on the brightness of the display. Setting the brightness to the absolute minimum and the errors seems gone.
Maybe this informations is helpful for others with the same Problem.

Metalist of free DNS servers

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netzwerk, windows

DNS is on of the most important elements of the internet. Without we had to surf with ip adresses. Good to know that you can choose your DNS Server freely and you not depend from the DNS of your provider

There are a lot of good lists with free DNS in the Internet so I link to them instead of building a new one.

howto name Areas in Excel/Calc

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Sonstiges, windows

A short tipp for Excel/Calc

Mark an area . Than you see at the left e.g. D4:D13 . Now you change D4:D13 into Testspalte in this Field.
Now Excel/Calc offers to integrate Testspalte into Formulas.

=SUMME(Testspalte)

version control ist not only for developers

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Sonstiges, windows

Who doesn’t know this:
“If I only had an old version of my bookmarks, my curriculum or another important office document”
This is the point to think about version control like developers use for Code.
One version control tool usable for this is git.
Git was developed by Linus Torvalds and others for the Linux Kernel but it also exist a windows version.
Lets make our first repository

cd mydir
git init
git add .
git commit

How track down Changes ?
git status
git diff

Commit History
git log
Howto revert the last commit
git revert HEAD

Erinnerungen an die Floppy

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Sonstiges, Weltgeschehen, windows

Nun ist es also soweit.
Sony wird 2011 die Floppy [1] in Rente schicken .
Für die Jüngeren , die gar nicht mehr wissen was eine Floppy ist sein hier der Artikel nahegelegt[2]

Für die Älteren , lasst uns innehalten und in Erinnerungen schwelgen.

Erinnerungen an konspirative Tauschtreffs auf dem Schulhof.
Ein Betriebssystem passte auf 3 Disketten ( DOS 5.0 in meinem Fall ). Ich unternahm wilde Versuche mit dem Schlagbohrer die Kapazität der Floppy zu verdoppeln.
Multplayer fand zugweise durch tauschen von Disketten statt.
Ein Spiel endete , als sich die Floppy mit einer Sprudelflasche anfreundete.
Beim Installieren mancher Anwendung mit 20 und mehr Disketten mutierte man zum Diskjockey.

Nun wars das wohl für die Floppy.
Was werden wir in 20 Jahren wohl über den USB Stick sagen ?

custom hosts file for DNS-Problems

Author: Stephan  |  Category: Linux, Netzwerk, Weltgeschehen, windows

After big DNS-Problems at DENIC , manager of the .de domain, I think its not the worst idea to have a hostfile with the most important IPs.

A suggestion

209.85.229.104 google.de
213.144.235.206 ixquick.com

193.99.144.85 heise.de
208.80.152.2 wikipedia.org

213.71.15.101 tagesschau.de

79.125.5.160 robtex.com

This File belongs into the directory /etc at Linux Systems into %windir%\system32\drivers\etc at Windows Systems.
You should use this file only in case of DNS Problems
