Sysadmin, Because Even Developers Need Heroes

Sonicwall Global VPN Client

2006-10-30 by Mohammad H. Al-Shami

Last week while I was going over a checklist on a client’s system when our Leased Line service was disconnected.

No worries, that happens some times. I wait for the connection to go back up so I can finish my work, but I could not connect to the client’s network after that happened. So I think to myself, maybe the firewall still had the connection opened, so I go about and restart the firewall -which is a Sonicwall tz170 btw.


An Internal Memory Card Reader/Writer and Gentoo Linux; The Dangerous Combination

2006-10-14 by Mohammad H. Al-Shami

Hello everybody, it’s me again. Before I begin, I just want to say that this one’s dedicated to my friend and brother Kilo, you’ll love it :D.

After spending some time with my new w810i -which I love so far, I decided to get a card reader/writer to transfer files to/from the phone. Even though the USB cable that came with the phone worked like a charm, but I don’t want to use it since it charges the battery as soon as the phone is plugged, and I like to charge batteries only when they die.
