Istanbul total rampage!


Hi. I have been once again in Istanbul. I can tell, it was hard work for couple days. Lots of trouble with ill communication. Fortunately there were a couple guys either with me or available in Istanbul who tried to help as much as possible. Thanks. Appreciated. Anyways, it took me two days to recover. I won’t go there again in quite some time. Not my place.

I am a hillbilly from Schleswig-Holstein. It’s good being back at home.

Lo and behold!

I am now self-employed. Looking for a job. Will work for money. 😀

Alles Gute, du geile Kiste!

Crusade against Istanbul

Hi, I am going to leave in a few moments. First trip to Istanbul data center. Will be interesting. Probably I will enjoy as well the food very much. Yummy.

No news really

I just want to tell Beco there is no news.

This place is not deserted

Please come back someday soon. Right now I am very busy with some exciting developments at work and being with my family. So there is not much time for this place. Well, but I am still here. Take care!

Ubuntu 10.04 and the LSI 3ware 9750 raid controller

I was searching the net for a solution how to boot and deploy an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on a 3ware 9750 raid without having to load the 3w-sas.ko drivers manually for every server. It might be okay for s single installation, but this can really turn out to be a pita if it is a whole bunch of servers. From what I see there is only that modified 9.10 image provided by LSI, so please grab your copy for 10.04 amd64 here.

Please keep in mind, with this installation you can not just upgrade your kernel without taking care of that driver, though. It’s a shame this driver didn’t find itself into the Ubuntu releases.

Oh noes, we missed uptime anniversary

Fsck, today I recognized we missed to celebrate something – we have several servers with two years+ of interruption-free uptime now. Sorry. May you continue to crunch numbers until the end of days! Yours sincerely!

Something different – Amazon EC2 CentOS AMI

I have successfully built some CentOS 5.5 AMI with EBS and with instance storage. First I had to create an openvz CentOS instance and then I started building the AMI in the openvz environment. Cool.
