That nostalgic feeling… How things have changed….

In my parent’s generation, the advent of the TV was the big hit, and maybe a phone in every home (or at least your own line instead of a party line). Our generation, well those born in the late 70’s and 80’s (I’m a 79er personally) we have seen a lot of development in the area of technology… Going from CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) TVs to Flat Screen LCD/LED TVs, having a computer in every home, and some small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, and of course, cell phone technology, going from the brick (My father had one) to smaller cell phones to the advent of the smartphone.…

Free Secure Email Certificate from Comodo

Matthew 1 Comment

Hello Again folks,

Almost everyone today has an email account. Be it for business or personal correspondence, security can be an issue. Email itself, inherently, is insecure. Although you can connect to your email provider over TLS or SSL, that does not mean your email is encrypted, it just means your connection to the server is.

Now going full encryption can be a bit of overkill. Especially since that in order for it to be read by whoever you are sending the email to, that person would need your private key to decrypt the email. Now this is not so bad if you are only sending email to one person, but if you have several people, it can get a bit complicated keeping track of who does and who does not have your public key, and them trying to instruct those users on how to install the key… I get a headache just thinking about it.…

The Wonderful World of Linux

Its been a while since I made a post to my blog. I really should keep up with it. So in an attempt to do so, I decided to write about what I am currently engulfed in: The Wonderful World of Linux. In my life time I have used all major operating systems. In my younger years, before college, I was raised on Mac, up to OS 9… I never got into OS X as by the time it was released, I had already switched over to Windows. Throughout College I mainly worked on Windows and started to dabble in Linux, mind you back then they didn’t have the amount of flavours you have today.…

VMWare ESXi 6 vs Windows Hyper-V

I just spent the weekend reformatting my home server from Windows 2012R2 Data Center running Hyper-V to VMWare ESXi 6. Now installation issues aside, as ESXi can be very picky, ESXi seems to be exactly what I am looking for as far as virtualization goes.

A little background into my situation first: A few months back I picked up a system I was planning on doing virtualization with. I already had a copy of Win2K12R2 Data Center from when I took a course at Dawson College here in Montreal, so I took advantage of the new system and installed it. I had installed Hyper-V, but didn’t do anything with it until about a month ago when I installed a test of CentOS 7.…

How to change the SSH port on ESXi 6.0

Matthew 8 Comments

Every once in a while I hit a topic that I just can’t find any information on. This happens to be one of those topics. If you want to change the SSH Port on ESXi 5.x, no problem, VMWare provides you with Knowledgebase article on that. And someone made it a little clearer in a blog post. But no where could I find any procedure that worked for ESXi 6.0, so here I am writing this article, as after 5 hours of messing around and not being able to login, having to reset the server setting each time, I feel the need to share my finding with everyone, hoping that it will easy the burden on those looking to find answers.…
