Re: Ubuntu destroyed my youth.

In the early design of the system, I was having a hard time getting fedora to operate as i wanted it to and found ...

the remote desktop is actually to a linux device, ubuntu, that I am trying to connect to. the vino-server listens on 9092 instead of the common 5800/5900. Typically, we have clients IT departments allow us in for remote management of our devices, but this one client only allowed our server which the...

I initially started with taking the data in the url:
?symbol=T+GOOG+IBM...
and trying to throw the symbols into a for each loop after a regex got rid of the "+" symbols.

That's where I got messed up...wasnt sure if the foreach loop would work or if I just don't know what I am doing! :)

OpsView Anyone?

Anyone have any experience with using OpsView?
http://opsera.com/

Aside for it easily installing on either Ubuntu, RHEL, or CentOS, I have not heard any rumblings...likes or dislikes. I am installing it now in a VM, but just wanted to see if there were any gotcha's.
Just curious...

Is it anything like remastersys? I used Remastersys for our ubuntu images and it worked good. Sorry, I don't have the link, so you'll have to google it.

I just thought of something that might be easier using one table: Is there a way to check a table and if user1 exists, just update the datetime field, else insert new row with new user, datetime, ip. That way it would be easy to query that table and see who hasn't updated their datetime. Does that m...
