Stealing Solaris

I got a call today from my brother today, the accountant, but we don't hold that against him, well not often. He was wondering if I could get him a copy of Solaris for his server. I think the plan was that I would sneak into the super secure Solaris DVD vault, sign for a copy of the DVD but using my excellent card trick slight of hand I would sneak a second copy out. Then I could return the first and we would have a copy of Solaris. Mwahahahah.

It was all a bit of a disappointment to tell him he could just order one or download, for free, from http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/solaris-express/get.jsp.

The problem I foresee is that I will not be able to claim ignorance if he has issues with his computer. Must read up on installing wordpress on Solaris.

Of course, if he wants a "supportable" server build, he might want to install S10 rather than NV. http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/get.jsp ... but maybe I am just not giving the "accountant" enough credit.

samoyed.org.uk/blog is wordpress, very easy to install and admin, what you need is a way to ftp whole directory structures else its a big tedious especially with the plugin directories and their subdirectories...

The Solaris Express CDs I ordered months ago have still not turned up, so it may just be easier to download them...

@Tommy,

Having a "supportable" build would be too mainstream. Having failed to steal the software I at least need to let him think he some kind of uber geek;-)

@James Legg

If you drop me an email with your address I will send you a DVD. Chris.Gerhard@sun.com I'll also ask around about what happened to your DVD.
