    by , March 7th, 2014 at 01:23 PM
    After you create the VPC, you will want to look at the list of your applications and drawings of your environment and setup Security groups.

    Here is a list of common TCP/UDP ports

    Creating a security group
    aws ec2 create-security-group --group-name namehere --description "Test group"
    To describe the security group
    Aws ec2 describe-security-groups --group-name
  2. Adventures of using the Amazon's AWS cli part 1 - VPC

    by , March 7th, 2014 at 11:05 AM
    Here is a reference guide for myself when it comes to the Amazon AWS cli environment for a basic VPC configuration. Yes all this can be done from the web interface, however if you are going to work in an environment that will utilize govcloud you will need to learn the cli as the web interface isn’t available (cli is also useful when using cloud formation). This is intended for those who have prior experience when it comes to AWS, not to teach you the basics of AWS.

    This is all ...
  3. Windows 8.1, real tek sound cards, and VMware Workstation 10.x

    by , February 19th, 2014 at 03:23 PM
    Decided to install windows 8.1 on my Asus Sabertooth x58 motherboard last night and proceeded to install VMware workstation 10.0.1 build-1379776. Loaded up my ubuntu vms and for whatever reason getting the error:

    "A device ID that has been used is out of range for your system. Sound will be disconnected."

    Everything was working fine in Windows 7 Pro so I started to do some digging around and noticed several people are having the issue with vmware workstation ...

  4. Installing Microsoft SCCM 2012 notes from my lab

    by , February 12th, 2014 at 06:01 PM
    Before you can install SCCM 2012, a prerequisite scan occurs to make sure you meet certain criteria. If any show up as a fail, you will not be able to proceed with the install until you fix the issue (warnings will not stop you from installing SCCM 2012).

    My OS: Windows 2008 r2 x64 Datacenter with the latest Windows Updates as of 2-12-2014

    The account you are logged in as when you run the extendschema portion needed for SCCM to update AD needs to be part of the ...
  5. Unifi Access Point and Layer 3 management

    by , February 11th, 2014 at 06:11 PM
    Purchased a Unifi Access point for the charity I volunteer for because I wanted something with 802.11n on the network.

    Neat little access point and cheap but its kind of a pain because the access point is a dumb access point and requires controller software to be installed on a computer (java blah!) or you purchase a hardware controller. Documentation is pretty limited and I was having a hell of a problem getting the access point setup to talk to a controller that was on a different ...

    Today I completed the Architect Associates

    During the exam I actually got worried because I was having issues remembering SQS/SWF/SNS stuff (havent used much of it a production environment) but I managed to pull through! I used various documents from Amazon (love that Kindle app!) and also used CBTnuggets ( ...

  7. Rocksmith 2014

    by , January 20th, 2014 at 05:32 PM
    Back in Dec I was sitting at a car garage waiting for some new tires to be put onto my car when I saw an advertisement for Rocksmith 2014 on TV. Its saying was “learn how to play the guitar in 60 days” and it peaked my interest as I’ve always had a fascination with wanting to learn how to play. I received a few lessons when I was younger but I really never picked it up or let it grow mainly because it was hard and didn’t want to put the effort into it. I bought a Gibson Les Paul Special – Ebony ...

  8. Pasta with Whore Sauce

    by , November 10th, 2013 at 06:33 PM (A Fish Dinner in Memison)
    Well, that's what Pasta alla Puttanesca means. It's quick and easy and you can make with ingredients you probably have on the shelf, perhaps between clients. This version comes from Ed Giobbi's Eat Right, Eat Well -- The Italian Way, and our copy is tomato-stained and falling apart.
    Vermicelli alla Puttanesca

    Serves 6.

    4 tablespoons olive oil
    1 tablespoon safflower oil
    3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    3 whole salted anchovies, washed, spine removed, and
  9. Julia Child's Burgers

    by , November 7th, 2013 at 05:13 PM (A Fish Dinner in Memison)
    Or, as they're officially known, Bifteck Haché à la Lyonnaise. They really don't take a lot longer than ordinary burgers, especially if you don't have to take time to fire up the charcoal grill. And they are delicious (but very rich).
    ¾ cup finely minced yellow onions
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
    2 tablespoons butter, softened
    1 ½ teaspoons salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    1/8 teaspoon thyme
    1 egg
    ½ cup flour, spread on a plate

    Last week Mark Bittman had this recipe from Maria Batali in the Sunday New York Times Magazine. We tried it out this past Saturday, and boy! it was good.
