Marrying a Kuwaiti Women as a Non-Kuwaiti Man – K1

Marrying a Kuwaiti Women as a Non-Kuwaiti Man – K1

Back in August of 2015 I had posted about marrying a Kuwaiti women in Kuwait without the consent of her guardian. The posting has been well received and gotten a few comments and a storm of emails over the course of the last year or so. I personally never finished out the process, due to business travel taking priority over a sheet of paper made difficult to obtain by loads of red tape. It seems like every time you make…

Experimenting with vSphere PowerCLI – Portgroups

Experimenting with vSphere PowerCLI – Portgroups

Despite last weeks frustration with enhanced LACP and vDS through vSphere PowerCLI, some things can still be automated while others will have to be done by hand. I looked into the deployment of PortGroup’s as the next logical step, here is what I came up with so far: # Create Portgroups Get-VDSwitch -Name “vTest” | New-VDPortGroup -Name “Windows Servers” -PortBinding Static -Numports 32 -VlanID 100 Get-VDSwitch -Name “vTest” | New-VDPortGroup -Name “Linux Servers” -PortBinding Static -Numports 32 -VlanID 101 This…

Experimenting with vSphere PowerCLI – vDS and LACP

Experimenting with vSphere PowerCLI – vDS and LACP

This week as the year winds up I was experimenting with vSphere PowerCLI and noticed that when I go to create a Virtual Distributed Switch (VDS) through PowerShell I am able to create it, but it does not support enhanced LACP out of the box. It actually behaves identically to how it would if I created it in the fat client instead of the web client. # Create VDS New-VDSwitch -Name “vtest” -Location “Las Vegas” -LinkDiscoveryProtocol “CDP” -LinkDiscoveryProtocolOperation “Listen” -NumUplinkPorts…

Graduate Study

Graduate Study

Not long ago, I finished the last class in the graduate program I was taking at Boston University. I wanted to provide a brief review of the program that I took. I started the program in September of 2013, the admission process was overall pretty straight forward. So long as you have good grades, a strong statement of purpose, and your transcripts ready, it seemed very easy to make this dream a reality. The classes were moderately difficult in my…

Passed the 70-642

Passed the 70-642

Well, the test was actually harder than I thought, I still passed with a score in the 800’s. I will say that the book that I purchased did lack a little. The book I used as my primary study resource was MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-642): Configuring Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure. Another friend of mine took this exam a few weeks ago, using a combination of this book and Trainsignal, he mentioned that the combination was great. On…

70-642 Exam

70-642 Exam

Well this week ended up pretty interesting, I finished up reading the 70-642 book and will be scheduling my exam here with in the next 5-7 days. Hopefully I pass, on the review questions I have done pretty well, but have some areas where I feel I need to improve a bit. On the next exam (70-640), I am going to change up my study method and likely order trainsignal and see how I feel with their product instead of…

DJIA to fall this week?

DJIA to fall this week?

While, I can’t say tomorrow the market is going to go down, I have some speculation that it may, from a technical trading point of view. 1 Month Chart – So basically here what we are looking at is a hammer candle. Usually it is indicative of a reversal, towards the top of a rally it suggests that we are almost at the peak. 1 Week Chart – The least convincing of the three to me however, after looking towards the more…
