Keith off ill today.
Helped the reporter from yesterday through the configuration of NAT through the piranha web panels. Minor hiccup as I find out the spec web clients are geared to pummel 126.96.36.199 which he defined the LVS server's real IP to be whereas the VIP was defined as 188.8.131.52. That sortted out he went off to do testing. I assume that he'll be ok with what he has.
Went off and hunted down a spare phone headset. Supporting phones on your shoulder while typing is very uncomfortable.
More the fool me 8/
He phoned back later in the day to tell me he'd hit a problem, he'd maxed out the network card/link... 8)
I'm not upset by that 8) it simply means the software exceeds the performance of the hardware provided. So I started into helping him reconfiguring the network into a direct routing configuration but we abandoned that because we realised that his hardware wasn't able to do support higher bandwidth.
Missed luch again while doing the phone support
Got the warm fuzzy's from him that the article will be mostly positive though with serious slap for lousy docs. Sems he'll be at LWE as well,... I shall have to wait and see his article before deciding on taking wire cutters or a rusty chopping axe to the show for the demo.
Caught up on world events.
