VirtualBox Network Settings: All You Need to Know

In this modern business world, networking is a crucial component of interactive computer operations. It is difficult to imagine how to exchange data between computers without networks in a world where everything is changing at ever-growing speed. One of the central focal ideas behind hardware virtualization is the possibility to use virtual machines in nearly all cases where physical computers can also be used. Thus, virtual machines must be able to connect to physical and virtual networks with their virtual network adapters. Virtual machines running on VirtualBox can be connected to different networks. VirtualBox provides multiple network modes for virtual machines. Today’s blog post covers VirtualBox network settings to help you configure VirtualBox in the best way possible to suit your needs.

The Unofficial Unix Administration Horror Story Summary


This is version 1.1 of “The Unofficial Unix Administration Horror Story Summary”. I put this together for two reasons:

  1. Some of these stories are damn amusing.
  2. Many people can learn many things about what *not* to do when they’re in charge of a system. As (Rick Furniss) puts it: “More systems have been wiped out by admins than any hacker could do in a lifetime.”

This is not an FAQ, but more like the questions that *should* have been asked (and answered). There are success stories, and… well… other stories. I’m certain that everyone can learn something from reading these stories.
