I have an annoying problem with my Openswan VPN server. When I connect from a Windows XP machine, from that point on, I can only connect with that machine (or perhaps other Windows XP machines as well). On the other hand, when I connect with a Windows 7 machine first, connecting from Windows XP is no longer possible.

As a note to self for next year: We just had a 8 kg turkey for our Thanksgiving meal. Recipes on the internet said it needed 7 to 8 hours of cooking. However, we took it out after 5.5 hours, and it was even somewhat overcooked. It probably needed about 4.5-5 hours.

In MSSQL, I needed to loop over a bunch of orders and execute a stored procedure, except in one case. This does that:

As I mentioned here, I had to manually create a database schema when I installed PowerDNS on Debian Squeeze. Later versions apparently create one themselve.

I had a disk in one of my servers that was starting to give ATA errors in the syslog. Contrary to what you might think, ATA errors are fairly common, so I didn't immediately sound the alarm. However, this disk turned out to be corrupting data. During upgrading Debian 6 to 7, the file system became read-only. Rebooting gave me a recovery shell and e2fsck gave me millions of questions.

I needed to configure an Areca RAID array to find out it was password protected. I could unlock it with: MNO974315743924.

Especially the addendum to the 3Ware 9650 SE RAID controller compatibility list is hard to find, so I'm making them easily available.

Note to self: explore FreeIPA. Someone on Serverfault suggested it and said it was what AD is for Windows. If it is, it would relieve me of LDAP hell. Too long for this blog post, but I spent about a week (or more) full-time to get an LDAP setup working, with all security measures in place. It involved diving into source code, discovering and reporting Ubuntu documentation bugs, etc. An experience I don't care to repeat.

I've had some issues with my Blackberry Enterprise Server. Some users say their mail is not synced. Others are reporting calendars being messed up. Just jotting down some memory aids.
