Odds are if you’ve landed here you’re aware of what Paperclip is and the purpose it servces within a Rails application. If not, it’s basically a gem that will handle file uploads. In my case I use it for resizing images, saving them somewhere (S3), then easily presenting them back to the user inside of a view. Note: This tutorial should work with any S3 compatible object storage API. Minio is just one of the more common ones.

The problem – ASDM Won’t launch properly When setting up a Cisco ASA Virtual Appliance (ASAv) in my lab I ran into issues getting ASDM to launch properly. When attempting to login I’d be prompted with the message “Unable to launch device manager from X.X.X.X” as seen in the screenshot below: The logs indicate it’s an error with how SSL is configured on the ASA: Application Logging Started at Thu Dec 15 15:51:05 CST 2016 ——————————————— Local Launcher Version = 1.
Simple walkthrough describing the installation process of Sentry on Ubuntu 14.04
Perhaps the most frustrating thing about vCenter 6 is the hard 8GB of RAM requirement to simply install the application on a Windows server. To a lot of people, including myself, carving out 8GB of RAM VM in a home lab just to run vCenter for a host or two is a big ask. But beyond that, even if you’re using a physical computer that has exactly 8GB of installed RAM, if any of that RAM goes to an integrated video card, and thus doesn’t appear available to Windows, you’ll be blocked from running the VCenter installer as your system will have slightly less than a full 8GB of RAM.
This script, as well as similar scripts can be found on the internet but I tend to keep losing the pages that have it. So for my own archival reasons, as well as making it a little easier for others to find, here it is. This script uses winrar to recursively extract rar archives. This is very useful if you legally download seasons of shows and don’t want to extract each episode one by one.
This was originally posted on my old blog back in 2010ish, restored it here for archival purposes. Recently I changed the software the imaging server at work uses from Clonezilla to FOG. There were many reasons for the change such as a better web interface, image deployment queue, etc however one of the main things I was looking forward to was storage nodes which allows for distribution of images across multiple servers to extend storage.
