Don't Wind Up Looking Like This



It really sucks when you screw up in a public way. Private screwups? No big deal. Public screwups? Thanks to IM, cell phone cameras, texting, Facebook, and other marvels of modern communication, those who screw up in public get skewered in public.

Frustrate the sadist bastards with a little education:


Attend the 2009 LISA Conference in Baltimore Next Week

While you're there, check out the Solaris Security Summit. It might keep you from making an unfortunate decision or two.

The good folks from Solaris Marketing put together this Solaris LISA page to highlight the Solaris-related activities at LISA.

Don't forget to drop by the Solaris booth. We'll have live demos of cool Solaris technologies plus BigAdmin on its very own computer. If you have any questions about where the juciest Solaris 10 content is on BigAdmin, drop by and ask me. Or drop by the BoF on Tuesday night (details on the Solaris LISA page).

If you're really, really, really not sure whether you should spend the money to go to LISA in this economy, mull it over while you watch The Hula Dance from The Lion King in a bunch of different languages.

Um Pouco de Português em BigAdmin




According to family lore, my great-great-great-great maternal grandfather was Floriano Peixoto. Since my maternal grandmother, Zoila da Souza Peixoto, came to Peru via Iquitos, I suppose it's within the realm of possibility.








I think the dude kinda looks like me, too.




I would really like to verify that claim some day, but the best I can do for now is publish some Portuguese content on BigAdmin:

This tech tip was published by Nuno Rocha on the BigAdmin wiki. It's on the BigAdmin wiki because we haven't yet put up a Portuguese tab on our multilingual hub. It only has seven tabs so far:

As soon as we have a Portuguese tab, we'll link to Nuno Rocha's content, plus any other content in Portuguese you let us know about. Vou te contar sobre isso when it happens.

Remember...

BigAdmin is your site. We'll publish any good content from Sun that we can get our hands on, but we also love to publish content that you write yourself or link to content that you find somewhere else.

Tchau,

New Virtualization Resource Center for Sysadmins

If you search through BigAdmin for virtualization topics, you get 5 pages of hits with 64 entries:
Virtualization search results on BigAdmin
Most of the articles published in, or linked to, from BigAdmin focus on Solaris containers, with some mentions of zones and logical domains (LDOMS). This one, published back in the day (2006), is one of my favorites:
The Sun Blueprints Guide to Solaris Containers
For those of us who have been living on the beach in Fiji for the last couple of years, the guide starts with the benefits and basic concepts of virtualization. Then it takes an old-fashioned deep dive into the topic. If you need to understand the whys and hows of virtualization before you make some important decisions, this blueprint is an excellent place to start.

A deep dive is good, really good, but sometimes you need a walk around the pool first, just to make sure the water's warm. So the BigAdmin crew decided to put together a virtualization resource center for our favorite people:
BigAdmin's Most Excellent Virtualization Resource Center for Sysadmins
Best of all, it's got four (4) tabs: Of course we left out Microsoft's virtualization page. Because we're just plain mean. Actually, it's because we heard about it after we were done. We feel terrible. So here it is:
Microsoft's Virtualization Resource Center
LOL. OK. Here's the real one. Honest. I swear:
Microsoft's Real Virtualization Resource Center
