Qemu and networking

May 25, 2005, 8:38 a.m. virtualization

It is said that a qemu guest operating system can talk to it's host operating system through the network with the help something called tun/tap, something which I am ashamed to say I have never heard of before.Configuring network cards, ppp or routing tables has never been my strong point, so TUN/TA ...

Log Mine

May 22, 2005, 10:08 p.m.

Earlier this month, I wrote about the need to create a different web log analyzer. I have started on it. A new project has been created at sourceforge.net and the first release will be added in a couple of days time. Interestingly that would coincide with the new sourceforge stats system coming back ...

Qemu

May 21, 2005, 10:33 a.m. virtualization

Just downloaded 0.7.0 of qemu. Looks like there have been two releases since the last time I tried it out. Improvements include a step towards Mac OS X support.Last time around I didn't have much success with it partly due to a lack of patience on my part. The documentation being very cryptic didn't ...

Adwords Site Filtering at last

May 16, 2005, 11:42 p.m.

I have complained many times about the lack of a site filter for Adwords. As a result if you choose to advertise on the Adwords content network you have no control of where the ads were being displayed. Or at least that is until last week you had no control. Now at long last google has finally added ...

To build another log analyser

May 13, 2005, 10:05 a.m.

No one would want to build yet another log analyser. There are dozens of them out there. Things are not as bad in the in the field of Content (Mis)Management Systems where everyone and his dog seems to have a product listed at freshmeat but there are too many log parsers out there.So why do I even ...

Awstats rescue Webdruid and Webalizer

May 10, 2005, 10:46 p.m.

For the third day running, the topic is log analysis tools. Earlier I wrote that webalizer/webdruid were unsuitable for my requirement because they refused to process my logfiles properly. It turns out that the real issue is not the logformat but the sequence.In whodunnits the best suspect usually c ...

The less well known log analysers

May 8, 2005, 11:02 p.m.

Yesterday, I took a look at three big names in web log analysis; analog, awstats and webalizer. Today is the turn of some less well known products that are listed on freshmeat.There are hundreds, so only the products that do not have the appearence of abandonware were anlysed. That is only products ...

Analog Webalizer and Awstats

May 8, 2005, 9:04 a.m.

Analog has been my web log analyzer for as long as I can remember. There are several reasons, first and foremost being that it was the best around many many years ago, and once you find a good tool you stick with it. I have stuck with it for a long time.That does not mean I have been faithful, I hav ...

The blunt edge

May 6, 2005, 12:37 a.m.

I have not dabbled in any new technology for a couple of months. I have not even been close to the edge and readers of this blog and visitors to this website do not appreciate that. It is reflected in the site statis for April, which shows a drop in april after an almost continues rise for the last ...

Just made a new release of Rad Upload.The other day, I wrote about changes to Rad FTP in order to make it compatible with some FTP servers on the windows platform. Well, Rad Upload has it's built in FTP client. As you might guess it is based on some of the classes from Rad FTP. So it stands to reas ...

CPM adwords

May 4, 2005, 3:20 a.m.

The adwords home page proudly says: "Pick the exact sites where your AdWords ads appear". This is actually a misnomer. It is google's way of avoiding a problem with adwords.As you know you can choose to display ads on the so called content-network. The content network is made up by websites that hav ...

Hotscripts, Cnet and Sourceforge

May 1, 2005, 12:05 a.m.

Hotscripts, download.com and Sourceforge seem to be heading in opposite directions.Until recently hotscripts did not discriminate between commercial and free products. According to their latest updates, unless you cough up the fees for a premium listing ($38/quarter last time I checked), commercial ...
