Security is not an option ;-)


Today, again a got a SD card with a very specific Virus...
It's "normal" that when you buy a car you have by default a "state of the art" of safety measure/instrument included in your car...Even if few high tech safety stuff are still  option's.
But YOUR CAR is really SECURE related to common technology BY DEFAULT.

Do you thing that this statement is true for the IT (understand your personal computer) I don't thing so.

So, how to get the same level for your IT? I will not extend but failing your IT security could cause serious damage, personal or institutional.

Next post will go back to .. Microsoft Exchange matter... ;-)

VMware officially supports (some) long-distance VMotion scenarios

VMware officially supports (some) long-distance VMotion scenarios
Mise en ligne par Andre's photo

At the beginning of July virtualization.info reported how VMware, Cisco and EMC (the VCE triumvirate?) are working together to execute virtual machines live migrations across data centers that are 80 km (50 miles) away from each other.

Well, what was considered an impressive yet experimental configuration in July became an officially supported scenario in September.

The three companies discussed three different scenarios for long-distance VMotion at VMworld 2009 and announced the joint validation for one of them, where VMware supports a 200 km live migration (assuming you can satisfy some pretty demanding requirements):

Windows Mobile/Phone 6.5


You probably read a lot about Windows Mobile 6.5 but this enhancement about finger user interface is probably more than what we can understand... Have a look to the review of Engadget: http://www.engadget.com/photos/windows-mobile-6-5-walkthrough/1361911/

Or again, more geeks, can go to XDA-Dev.

Build a free VOIP for your domain.

A full article would be made available at http://www.debilloez.net/.
But in the mean time for the most motivated, here find your own informations or materials.

1. Buy VOIP credit to call land line:
I used: http://www.voipstunt.com/

2. Register the SRV record in your public DNS
More info: http://www.voip-info.org/wiki-DNS+SRV

3. Found the hosting SIP Server for free ... I provide the GOOD url ;-)
Regiter for you domain here :http://serweb.iptel.org/user/reg/reg_domain_1.php?phplib_Session=ad11955f369a073c2905e6f6d0bd0ae8
Take care to not simply register for an account but well for a domain
An alternative is to host and publish your own VOIP server (Asterix, 3CX, ...)

4. Obtain a SoftPhone and register with your accound.
By the step 3 you get a way to register by using ie toto@mydomain.com
So other SIP phone can call you by your own e-mail address !

PC Softphone : http://www.counterpath.com/
Windows Mobile : check http://www.xda-developers.com/ but many non"natif" exist.
