Well, new year 2008 all!
If you’re using VMWare on a variable-speed processor (like all most modern cpu’s these days) you might have noticed that sometimes the guest OS runs a lot faster (causing the guest clock to run faster and all kinds of weird effects).
I just installed VMWare server on my gf’s linux-laptop, but the server console didn’t want to start for some reason… Just came back to the command line, nothing happening.
Ubuntu has these versions of it’s distribution they label LTS: Long Term Support. Now seems that if you use an LTS, and want to go to the next LTS… you’ll have the pleasure of either breaking your system, or reinstalling from scratch.
In Belgium, if you want to get somewhere on time - don’t take the train.
