While i find out how it can be done paravirtualised, i will be intalling it HVM, then i will keep you posted on how i will convert it to a paravirtualised system as soon as i do, Here i will keep you posted how the HVM virtualised goes
The results of the commands on this post are Here
On windows, You can use speedfan, under linux you can read the smart data as follows
Use the smartctl command, but first you must install the package
apt-get install smartmontools
1- Checking for smart support, (All recent hard drives have it but you need to enable it in BIOS)
smartctl -i /dev/sdb
2- Enable reading it
smartctl -s on -d ata /dev/sdb
smartctl -d ata -H /dev/sdb
smartctl -d ata -a /dev/sdb
Now some manufacturer specific smart atributes exist, you need to google them out, Also smart is not definitive, if S.M.A.R.T data says ok but there is a ticking noise in your hard drive, Don’t trust the hardware data, get backup.
Some hard drives like the Samsung Spinpoint come with extensive diagnostics software, My 3 2.5′ disks pass the test, pass the smart test, and tick when warm, i will let you know if it was the tick of death sometime soon
The red carpet of the 81st academy awards witnessed a great deal of celebrities living up to the latest fashionable standards. Some thought about their earrings before their dresses. Interesting jewelry pieces designed by some famous names in the fashion industry were worn to complete the looks of the divas. We couldn’t ignore some of the most astonishing accessories that took our breath away.
Heidi Klum wore colorful diamond bangle bracelets and coral rings. Beyonce had a huge flower yellow diamond floral ring by Lorraine Schwartz that went well with her golden black gown. Halle Berry carried a glam Jimmy Choo golden purse.
Taraji P. Henson completed her extra-feminine look with a shiny diamond necklace from Fred Leighton jewels colection. While Amy Adams chose a colorful blue and red beaded necklace that caught the photographers eyes. Diane Lane was glam enough with her hairstyle and dress, but added to that with maching necklace and diamond drop earrings.
On the red carpet of the 81st Academy Awards there were two kinds of dresses. Ones we won’t forget, and ones we can’t forget! You decide which falls under which category. All I can do is post the ones that left an impression on me. Below are eight celebrities best fit for this issue;
|Sarah Jessica Parker||Natalie
Heidi Klum arrived with Seal wearing a bright red dress with matched high heels. She completed the look with extra-beautiful beaded jewelry. The dress is said to be by the french designer Roland Mouret. Taraji P. Henson arrived on the red carpet of the 81st Academy Awards in a dazzling strapless creamy dress designed by Roberto Cavalli. Her makeup was simple and trendy, and she chose to match the dress with a mini dark red purse by Mary Norton.
Miley Cyrus atttended the 2009 Oscars wearing a huge silver dress with multi-blue-beaded petals by the Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad. Evan Rachel Wood chose a dress that matched her fair skin color, an ivory strapless swan-like dress by Elie Saab.
The Oscars this year should be interesting enough for some hot celebrities have already made some highlighting changes on their hair and wardrobe. We expect the best out of fashion designers as well as makeup artists and hairdressers, but we expect more of the female celebrities who would combine those three options to look glamorous enough for the academy awards.
The war this year is gonna be mainly about who would bring the most interesting peace of accesory! So lets just wait and see who wins with this fierce war on the red carpet. You can go here to check the Pre-Oscar partieres of the 2009 year.
Well we all remember JoJo, the sweet girl who reached top billboard lists with her song “Leave (Get Out)” five years ago, and later with the song “Too little, Too late” that hit the records with the most downloaded song on Yahoo Music.
Jojo’s tattoo is somewhat uncommon, she has a Music Note Symbol on her left hand ring finger. And although its the first time we see such a tattoo among celebrities, for most choose to have their sweetheart’s names wrapped around their fingers -if we keep the post related to the same body part- we still like the connection between jojo and her musical passion.
So, ALT+F2 then gksudo synaptics… sometimes i get the message you can run synaptics without a password, but synaptics does not show up, aptitude is there, but where is synaptics ?
Anyway, i am glad lenny is out, i have been waiting for it since last year, and i thought downloading it would be a challenge when the rush comes, The download came in at full speed and the both the text installer and the GUI installer work like a charm.
Did i mention it is not 1 DVD ! the thing is a 5 DVD, But i don’t think it is wise to download them all, Just download the first CD, and when you need a package, let the software get it from the internet for you.
all you need is the first CD or DVD, most packages you will need are there, and whatever is missing the installer can get for you from the internet !
Anyway, i have not yet checked it out fully, when i do, i will update you all.
The first three contestants who made it through to the top twelve were revealed live according to votes on February 19th 2009.Â Just a day before the announcement of the finalists, the first group of 12 competitors sang live a song of their choice. While some blew the judges away, some really blew their golden tickets to the entertainment industry. As the results were “almost expected” to the judges, Alexis Grace who sang â€Never Loved A Man” showed both good vocals and stage charisma and got enough votes to reserve a place at the final round of American Idol. The Church music teacher, Danny Gokey, who sang “Hero” was also tagged safe. And finally, 27′s old Michael Sarver who sang “I Don’t Wanna Be”. The three of them will also be joined with another person from the same group based on the Judge’s evaluation after getting the highest-nine-voted-for contestants.
and the credit here goes to â€¦â€¦.. MADONNA!!!!
Let’s start this latest info about Madonna and her new boyfriend Jesus Luz from the very beginning, and I’m not referring to a-1990-years past this moment, because it has only been figured out about a week ago.
We all know that Madonna had her first crush on the model-boy the minute they started shooting promotional photos for the W Magazine. While a bit after, rumors about their romantic relation have leaked to the media that succeeded in snapping a couple of pictures documenting the relation.
Up until a week ago, the couple were seen having lunch, shopping, and sharing the same hotel residence. But it clearly seems that Madonna wanted to share more than that!!
Luz, regardless of his catholic upbringing,Â was seen attending a couple of Kabbalah classes with his queen of pop. To be officially announced the hottest male member of the Kabbalah.
Asterisk with chan mobile.
So, my lovely TUSI-M does not work, it has legacy USB ports, I want USB 2.0.
Got an old celeron PC I had somewhere, found out it had 1GB of DDR1 ram, a 2.53GHz processor, a P4i65GV Motherboard with Bios 1.80 (Asrock), And an 80GB hard disk, fits the bill perfect.
the good thing about this motherboard is that it has 8 USB ports (2.0), The bad thing, A Celeron processor, An old celeron processor.
I installed an X100P (That I got in the mail today) on the PC.
1- Installed Ubuntu 8.04 32Bit from DVD, a default DVD install, user name (yazeed), Password (ZeDevildetail), and hostname (asterisk).
2- Now i need to enable VNC access, see This post in the ubuntu forums
3- Restarted Ubuntu to make sure the previous step works.
4- Installed Samba by starting Synaptic Package manager, Searching for Samba, and marking samba for install, 2 more packages are requiered, agreed to
install them when prompted after hitting the apply button, Same to install openssh. And miraculesly, when I start ubuntu on the machine, I can poin my VNC
viewer to asterisk:2
5- I installed RealVNC on my windows machine (The viewer only, if you install the server you will need a serial number).
6- logged in via VNC.
7- Downloaded Asterisk 22.214.171.124 along with the addons 1.6, DAHDI linux, Dahdi tools, and libpri 1.4.7 to /usr/src, DAHDI is what used to be ZAPTEL ,
LibPri is for T1, E1, J1 and I don’t need it, Just thought I’d install it anyway , So I unpacked them to that same directory I am in.
8- Before I install anything, I probably need to satisfy some dependancies, and add some tools so I can make managing the system easy later on,
LAMP task: PHP would help me write stuff I can fix online !
the, MySQL with root password being “whatdevil”
