The Server Room Show - Episode 66 - Cyber Security Awareness
Cyber security awareness presentations are frequently done in enterprises , I present a few myself every now and then, to new employees and also as a refresher course later on to keep them alert and as part of it corporations like to do phishing exercises and other kind of live/unannounced forms of testing employee awareness and ability around cyber security threats. In my opinion this episode is best consumed together with Episode 2 I did on Security 101 as some of the topics mentioned here are overlapping with the ones mentioned and discussed in that Episode for example the rules and safety about passwords and many other things I discussed there.

TSR- The Server Room Show - Episode 50 - Interview with Dr Marshall Kirk McKusick
This is a very special episode of a 45 minute full interview with someone who worked on BSD and remains actively involved in FreeBSD as well. Dr. Marshall Kirk McKusick is a computer scientist, known for his  extensive work on BSD UNIX, from the 1980s to FreeBSD in the present  day. Questions *What do you feel when you look back on the history of BSD and what it became today including FreeBSD? * Did You get involved eventually with FreeBSD after BSD ceased to exist because you felt FreeBSD could be the proper continuation of the BSD flag so to say? * Text editor of your choice, Which one are you using? *What do you think of the ZFS file system? *If BSD was not frozen up for 3 long years during the AT&T Lawsuit period which allowed Linux to get a head start.. Would BSD be what Linux is today? * Linus Torvalds wrote an article back in 2004 about the prediction of the death of BSD, How much of Linus’ prediction has come true? * Kirk’s comments on my statement regarding the Linux Foundation receiving a lot of money through major corporations as Gold and Platinum sponsors (Microsoft, etc.) which is kind of a takeover is already happening in place steering its focus towards what these company’s have in their interests while the FreeBSD Foundation receiving very little money compared to the Linux Foundation while still the FreeBSD Foundation is doing an impressive job with the much smaller amount they are getting. * Did You ever miss the chance you were given to go and work for Sun Microsystems?

What do You like in them?Complexity?The challenge they represent? Q6: If You had to compare VxWorks to FreeBSD when it comes to the Embedded industry  Can they compete with one another or VxWorks just leagues ahead when it comes to embedded devices? perhaps coming from that one is designed from the ground up to serve the purpose of being on embedded devices? Q7: How did You get into FreeBSD? 1a.: NetBSD with the running it on all (including microwaves did not sound more of a challengefor someone like Yourself who hacks the kernel all day long? Q8: You are the author/coauthor of many books on BSD and FreeBSD with Kirk McKusick How was it to work and coauthor a technical book/paper with someone legendary like him?

TSR-The Server Room – Shownotes – Episode 01 Topics for Discussion on this episode: Home Server ISP options Can I run a server out from Your own home? If not what alternatives I have available? Does it worth it? Should I use My ISP provided Modem or perhaps replace it with a 3rd party solution? I will use the first 15-20 minutes to give my two cents about the above and then I open the phonelines for comments / opinions / debate from the audience. If no callers then I just continue discussing some parts of these in more details. Voicemail and Calling queue configured on the DID|VOIP|SIP line…During the show calls are placed in a queue if the line is busy and when offline calls go to a voicemail so You can feel free to leave your comments and ideas that way if You prefer..

To draw the landscape of What, When , Where, How…. What is The Server Room when it comes to Me? I could have called it a Homelab as I refer to it many times when I have the need to describe where I spend most of my time and on what… What do I do for a living? ( for all those who have not opened any of those links on the top of this page) A quick rundown of Hardware I own as of 09/11/2019 General Topics I’m normally interested in and bother enough to investigate and learn more about: 1., Computer Hardware (not the electronics tough) anything and everything from new to old I love to look at them try them run them own them. Switches, Servers, Workstations, Thin Clients, Monitors, Terminal Emulators, Printers, Keyboards, Firewalls, UPS …. If You Can Plug It In Im Probably Interested 2.,Operating Systems (From Dos, BSD, Unix , Linux To Mac OS X, Windows, AIX, HPUX , IBM zOS and IBM Power Architecture, Solaris .. . any and every) 3.,Virtualization and Emulation (ESXI, Proxmox ,,,, Qemu, KVM, Stormasys CHARON Commercial Alpha, Vax, PDP, Sun emulators software ) 4., Network: Switches, Routers, Firewalls, LoadBalancers, Cloud (Azure, AWS, Oracle,Google), SDN – Software Defined Networks 5., Enterprise Solutions: Things like SCCM or other (Altiris) OSD – Operating System Deployment, Centralized Backup Solutions ( Veeam Backup Suite and Virtual Quadrstor Tape Library both available free for Homelabbers) Im sure there is more but this is how much came to mind for now…. What this show could become? Could it be more interactive? Have calls-in on a DID VOIP Number? Should it have acompanying multimedia content * screen recordings/screencasts of things I do or talk about while doing clicky noise with the keyboard including errors and mistakes?
