I just downloaded the wordpress blogging app from the apple app store. This is going to be a test post to a see how useable this app is.

The app seemed to crash once while I was writing this post. But since it saved a draft locally, I was able to get back all my content within seconds.

The company I work for has been a Windows only shop for a long time and has recently starting moving towards Linux. We’re growing at fast pace and sustaining our operations remaining a Windows shop will be too expensive. That’s not to say we’re completely ditching MS.

I recently put into service a new server running Ubuntu Server 8.04.1 to host our SVN and continuous build server (Hudson). I was looking for a way to authenticate the server against Active Directory and came across Likewise Open. I was surprised at the simplicity of the whole setup.

  1. sudo apt-get install likewise-open
  2. sudo domainjoin-cli join yourdomain.com yourADusername
  3. sudo update-rc.d likewise-open defaults
  4. sudo /etc/init.d/likewise-open start

Just make sure to replace yourdomain.com and yourADusername with your own domain name and active directory username. If you’re using a firewall, which you should be, make sure the required TCP/UDP ports are open.

I still need to figure out how to mount network shares automatically. I’ll keep this post updated with my findings.
