Configure Postfix to use a remote SMTP relay server via alternate port

On one of my local Ubuntu workstations at home, I sometimes have the need to send mail out using mailutils/mailx inside of scripts or on the command line. I also don't necessarily want/need to set up an entire mail server on my workstation. In addition, Verizon FiOS doesn't take too kindly to this for purposes of preventing malicious activity, SPAM, etc. They actually block outbound connections on the default SMTP port (25).

Running Carsten Czarski's node-oracledb WebSocket Example

My colleague Carsten Czarski href="http://www.slideshare.net/CarstenCzarski/nodejs-und-die-oracledatenbank-44493898"
>recently presented on the href="https://github.com/oracle/node-oracledb" >node-oracledb
driver for Node.js. One of his demos used WebSockets. It was a live
demo, not captured in slides. I thought I'd explain how I got it to
run in my Oracle Linux 64 bit environment.

Creating a local ownCloud mount point in Linux using WebDAV

ownCloud is enterprise file sync and share that is self-hosted in your data center, on your servers, using your storage. ownCloud provides Universal File Access through a single front-end to all of your disparate systems. Users can access company files on any device, anytime, from anywhere while IT can manage, control and audit file sharing activity to ensure security and compliance measures are met.
WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) allows you to "mount" your ownCloud content as a local mount point on your local Linux environment.

Pointing XenServer to a new Open vSwitch Manager (Nicira/NSX)

Our XenServer hypervisors use Nicira/NSX for Software Defined Networking (orchestrated by CloudStack). We had to migrate from one controller to another and that could easily be done by changing the Open vSwitch configuration on the hypervisors, like this: It will then get a list of all nodes and use those to communicate. Although this works, […]
