Life Philosophy

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles roll
ed into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..

‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.

‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.

Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.

And so I got Beta access to Blizzards newest game, Hearthstone.. And as always, I play it on Linux…

Installation:

Download installer from you Blizzard Battle.net account.

mkdir /home/username/Games/Heartstone/
WINEPREFIX=/home/username/Games/Heartstone/.wine winecfg

In winecfg, override “dbghelp”-> disabled and “msvcp100″-> Native under Libraries.

then run:
WINEPREFIX=/home/username/Games/Heartstone/.wine winetricks wininet

And then install:

WINEPREFIX=/home/username/Games/Heartstone/.wine wine Hearthstone-Beta-Setup-enGB.exe

Game installed, and running beautifully.. Good job Blizzard.. Again.. next best thing to native Linux games, are Windows games that just runs..

And I must say, that Hearthstone is also a very nice game so far…

XenServer 6 + Windows 2003 + Symantec = STOP Error 0x0000DEAD

Today I struggled with migration of some Windows 2003 machines from VMWare to XenServer.

The guys that were migrating the machines were using Symantec to backup the VMWare machines and restore them to XenServer.

Apparently it seems like the way that Symantec configure the virtual machines, is no longer compatible with XenServer after the upgrade from 5.6 -> 6.0/6.1/6.2. When they migrated a Windows 2003 machine it started on XenServer with no issues, but when XenTools were installed, the machines stopped during bootup with Error code 0x0000DEAD (Kinda funny :D)..

By comparing the virtual machine configuration, I have developed this small script to fix the issue:

#!/bin/bash
xe vm-param-clear param-name=platform uuid=$1
params=”nx=false pae=true apic=true acpi=true stdvga=0 viridian=true”
for i in $params;do
xe vm-param-set platform:$i uuid=$1
done

The script should be fed with the UID of the virtual machine, accessiable through “xe vm-list”.

Hope this will someone out there..
