Today I got error 1603 while installing Autodesk Revit 2019 on a student’s laptop. The best solution is to uninstall all Microsoft Visual C++ runtimes, reboot the computer, and let the Revit installer get its way installing the supplied versions.

The firmware was in need of an upgrade. Continue reading Chelsio T6225-CR has arrived
The aim is to get a 10 Gbit/s connection to the LAN, utilise the off-load capabilities of the NIC, and of course utilise the on-board crypto accelerator. The latter will not be useable until the system moves to the upcoming
stable/12, I look forward to encrypted crash dumps and linear ZFS scrubbing.
I hope both OpenSSH and OpenSSL will be able to use the crypto accelerator by ways of
crypto(4). Imagine a crypto speed in excess of 30 Gbit/s. That’s pretty neat. If all goes well, another T6225-CR may find its way to a VPN router.

I needed to migrate an UFS filesystem from one disk to another. I had several options including using two
tar processes in a pipeline or using
restore in a pipeline. I opted for the latter to make sure everything got preserved during the transfer.
Here’s the sequence of commands where
/dev/gpt/nroot0 is the GPT label of the new filesystem and
/ is the donor filesystem:
newfs /dev/gpt/nroot0 mount /dev/gpt/nroot0 /mnt cd /mnt rmdir .snap dump -0LaP 'restore -rf -' / cd / umount /mnt
I need to remind myself of running the IPP webpage in compatiblity mode in IE11 when installing printers.
Even if you specify
ipp.FQDN, IE11 will kindly enter your
FQDN into the list of domain names to show in compatibility mode. Remember to remove
FQDN from that list when you’re done.
iPrint client 5.99 seems to be the last of its kind. From now on, iPrint is an appliance. Maybe it’s time to leave Novell and their products for good.
Sometimes security is on the border of being ridiculous. Modern Windows 10 is very anxious when connecting to guest-access allowed, readonly Samba shares, Here’s how to allow “insecure” guest logons for stand-alone computers. The same is true when configuring a GPO.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters] "AllowInsecureGuestAuth"=dword:00000001
If technologists do not speak up to educate policymakers, bad policy will result, and we will have to live with it.
