Happy New Year, Year In Review, And First post in 3 months… SRSLY!

I can’t believe I let my blog slide.  I have been so busy over the last few months I haven’t had a chance to sit down and write a good long post. So here it is, my First post of 2016, wishing everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR (a few days late) and I will start the new year with a little Year in Review post.


Ok, so I had some downtime at work.  By this I meant an evening shift where absolutely nothing was going on.  So I decided to play with one of my Virtual Machines.  My Setup at work consists of my Laptop, a USB Monitor, and a standard VGA Monitor, so 3 screen in total.  On one screen I usually have a full screen instance of Kali Linux going via VirtualBox.

I found two really cool sites called Bashrcgenerator.com and Ezprompt.net.  I used both of them to create my new user bash prompts:

What happened to MatthewKoster.com?

I have decided to shut down my old site for now, kind of hard to keep more than one blog going with the projects I am currently working on. Not to mention again I have put off my Metro project as I realized a lot of the Metro stations in Montreal, really aren’t that spectacular. So I have decided to forward all of my old sites traffic to my more popular site ConsideredNormal.com.

It’s not much of a bump mind you, MatthewKoster.com was only getting about 100 hits a month, which is only 3.3% of the traffic ConsideredNormal.com currently generates. But it will allow me to put all my thoughts in one place.

Return to World of Warcrack, I mean Warcraft…

I caved… after years of being way I started a free account, maxed to level 20, and decided to buy back into it to level further.  I hopped out around the time of  Wrath of the Lich King, so about 2008/09.  I jumped out because they changed so much of the game that it wasn’t fun any more.  Over the years I hoped on and off while playing the free version, and I sort of got to liking the way the game is, being able to fly in most areas (Seems the areas released in the Burning Crusade are still to be updated) is pretty cool especially when you can boost a character to 90.

How to change the SSH port on ESXi 6.0

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.

Back on Facebook, but not without issues…

So after two weeks of shutting off my access to Facebook, I find myself logging back in. It seems to remove your digital fingerprint from the net is almost impossible. If you are an android user like myself, and a Facebook user, chances are, on several apps you have installed, you have logged in with Facebook. This presents a problem once you delete that account. You cannot re-create the account with the same email, as its already registered. And creating a new account also means you have to start everything over.
