virtuallyGhetto: Ruby vSphere Console (RVC) 1.6 Released – Rich Lane the creator of Ruby vSphere Console just recently released RVC 1.6 which includes some new features and bug fixes. If you are a current RVC user, you can update to the latest version by using the "gem" utility. For those of you who are not familiar with RVC, it is console UI for vCenter Server and ESX(i) host and it provides a way to interact with your vSphere infrastructure like the vSphere Client but using a console shell. RVC can be installed on a Windows, Linux or Mac OSX system and it's built on RbVmomi which is an open source Ruby library/bindings to the vSphere API.

BAT file tips | Alex @ Net – Let's play with BAT files a little. As you may know, BAT files are intended to be run and processed by the MS command processor, named cmd.exe, and the programming language they are created with is very close to BASIC. The early versions of the BAT-files language (which comes from famous Windows ancestor, MS-DOS) were very limited. Nowadays it has more features and a few days ago I created a small collection of interesting tricks, related to BAT file programming. You can check the following examples that demonstrate which execution flow controlling statements BAT-file language has and show their analogs in PHP.
10 Tools To Add Some Spice To Your UNIX Shell Scripts – here are some misconceptions that shell scripts are only for a CLI environment. You can easily use various tools to write GUI and/or network (socket) scripts under KDE or Gnome desktops. Shell scripts can make use of some of the GUI widget (menus, warning boxs, progress bars etc). You can always control the final output, cursor position on screen, various output effects, and so on. With the following tools you can build powerful, interactive, user friendly UNIX / Linux bash shell scripts.

TIP: Debug squid ACL matches – The FreeBSD Forums – For tricky squid ACL troubleshooting situations, it is helpful to be able to see which access control entries a request matches and does not match. This information can be discovered easily using squid's debugging facility.
You can start immediately. It is especially suitable for comparing these different monitoring solutions. Note that OpenNMS is written in Java and produces a high load on the system. Starting and Stopping OpenNMS takes a long time (several minutes!).
Squid Block – DNSBL Redirector for the Squid Proxy – dnsbl_redir is a shamelessly derived redirector based on the asqredir redirector written by Thomas Zippo < thomas at zippo dot ch >. Thanks!
Its been rewritten to use a DNSBL list (RHS type) to check for and block sites listed in the DNSBL. It will redirect your users to the page/site listed in the top of the dnsbl_redir.h file.
dnsbl_redir is written in C. It consists of one small source file and a small(er) .h file. It has been tested and runs on the current Squid versions. It performs very well on Linux (RedHat/Fedora), BSD and technically should compile and run on any gnu/linux.
