Redhat and Xen Virtualization Interview
The latest Red Hat Magazine has a nice article on The virtues of Xen
. This is something that's already on my TODO list.... I have a spare system (or virtual machine) I can throw Fedora Core 4 on (which has Xen built in). This article nicely explains why this is cool...
Red Hat has announced it will push for Xen integration in the Linux kernel, and that virtualization and stateless Linux is the way to go. Hooray! But wait--what's the buzz all about? What's so special about virtualization anyway?
More information on this is available at the Fedora Xen quickstart wiki page.

New Vista Screenshots
Some new Microsoft Windows Vista Build 5270 (December 2005 Community Technical Preview CTP) Screenshots & Features
via Activewin. It loks pretty sexy I guess, however the real question is "will people care?". I installed a CTP (the last one I think) on a spare computer (which I admit was not that powerful and didn't have a really fast video card) and basically went "meh".

Lion and Cat
Cute post from
group at livejournal. Cat doesn't look overly impressed however. What can I say, I'm a huge sucker for cute animals.

eXpose for Firefox
Tig threw me a link to this cool firefox extension, foXpose
, which lets you see all your firefox tabs with a single click. No funky animation, and the thing that is missing I think is seeing all tabs in all windows, not just the current window. Still pretty cool, and gets the arcterex stamp of approval (tm).

Looking at Monster Cable
This is an interesting look at Monster Cable
, and basically how they are living the American Dream(tm)(c)(r) of selling not a lot for a huge price by telling people it's worth 1000x what it is actually worth. Selling a simple coax cable for > $100 is quite a feat.
