Look at what Google won't put in a press release

Innovation Matters on SolarisLast month, just before traveling to the West Coast, I practiced my latest presentation,"Six reasons to choose Solaris", in which I have a slide with some company logos of the users of Solaris 10. One of my audience asked why Google wasn't on the slide. I driveled on about their use of Solaris not being public and he pointed me at this job ad on their web site, for a Solaris trained systems administrator. It seems they're also using Oracle! Using Google to look for the obvious keywords, finds this google job ad for a Solaris/Oracle administrator, which isn't even on their site. Google uses Solaris is now a public domain fact.

I wonder how many of my "Six reasons" led to Google making this decision.

Open Solaris users in London on Wednesday

OpenSolaris: Innovation Matters The next meeting of the London Open Solaris User Group (losug) is due to be held  this Wednesday, Oct 17th at Sun's Customer Briefing Centre, Regis House on Lower King William St. The agenda has been posted at their site, and is about LDOMS. Once again, I have been unable to give people both a two week and two day notice of these meetings, and since two days notice would be tomorrow, I shan't bother as its too close to this notice to be useful.

Slow cruise to Nevada

Despite having a very hectic week, I finally finished a Live Update on my Solaris partition and have enscripted it, so it shouldn't be so hard next time. I had to fix my zfs checkpointing routines as while I had turned it on to protect my work against stupidity, I wasn't deleting them. I have amended the Gnome startup scripts to invoke $HOME/.gnome.login and the .gnome.logout is also invoked appropriately, and .gnome.logout creates a snapshot. The main reason for doing this is that I am unsure that Gnome runs the login shells exit scripts, and not all shells have these. However my poor code also means that root won't start a JDS session any more. I am going to claim this as a security enhancement. :(

My interest and use of  ZFS and Live Update has all been inspired by Chris Gerhard who documents his ideas at The dot in ...---... Live Update is also a coming technology, so I think it's important for me to get to grips with it. 

I am now considering how to write a tcl/tk wrapper for my LU script as I am still a number of versions behind.This meant I still had to amend the grub menu.lst by hand and refresh the boot archive manually. (The latter requirement may have been caused by me, but now I know how easy it is to mount the shadow BE, I shan't leave it for so long again.) I must remember that the reboot command is probably best issued from a root failsafe session.
