Damn- i’ve already got lazy and not been updating regularly as i told myself i would. A few bits i remember since last time…

-New fileserver arrived and i have now realised the 2 raid cards i have are useless (i need SATA non-raid cards) for ZFS with FreeNAS. Currently hunting on eBay for something else!
-My rack tft/lcd keyboard/mouse thing packed up- so i need to look for a new one of those too!
-LINQ to SQL: I got hooked a while back but didn’t like the way it interprets some manipulation and couldn’t cope with bulk updates. But now i figured i can simply do db.executecommand() i’m happy!
-I got trixbox working nicely with the Cisco Wireless 7920 IP Phone i bagged cheap off eBay (using SCCP):
setup static ip/dns (system-config-network)
create some extensions?
yum install asterisk16-devel gcc
yum update
wget Chan_SCCP V3.tar.gz
tar -zxvf Chan_SCCP…
make install
copy sccp.conf (from /root/Chan… to /etc/asterisk) + edit
edit /etc/asterisk/modules.conf (add:
noload => skinny_sccp.so
load => chan_sccp.so

-Communicating between multiple forms in vb.NET: I was struggling to figure how to pass information to another form without storing it in a control. I ended up doing something like:
Public Class Form2
Dim edit_acct_row as Int32
Public Sub New(ByVal row_index As Int32)
edit_acct_row = row_index
End Sub

then calling the form like:
Dim f_pick_acct = New Form2(edit_acct_row)

-Checking/Ticking a checkbox in a DataGridView with vb.NET: When simply manipulating the dgv.rows(r).cells(c).value the state of the checkbox was not updating! I ended up having to:
Form1.dgv_preview.Rows(r).Cells(c).Value = True

-My Simpsons Kesha (Ke$ha) Tick Tock Intro Video on youtube has had over 10,000 hits! I’m not working on another video which will take quite some time but i hope will attract quite a lot of attention once complete :)

Wow- a lot squeezed into a small space + tons i’m sure i’ve learnt and forgotten!
