Flint River 10 mile run

Instead of complaining about how I use to be able to run, I decided to start running again on March 31, 2010.  After two months of walking and running almost every other day I ran 10 miles last night in 1 hour and 47 minutes.  I finished the last two miles running fast and strong.

I am going to run my first race in Georgia, it is a short 5K race, Loop the Lake. I have not done a 5k race since 2005 when I started running for the second time in my life. So running when it is hot, humid and raining has been an inspiration.

Breaking the barrier of one hour of running without stopping last week gave me the will power to run 10 miles. I have run this far before, so I am not breaking new ground, but it is harder than I thought to remain inspried to run when I know I am not in the best shape.  I am working towards some local short distance runs and I am inspired that after two months of steady running I can run 10 miles.

Training for a marathon in March 2011 or the Rouge Orleans 100 mile run is my motivation for running.  I want to run 60 miles again on or near my 60th birthday in 2012. It would be great to run the Bandera 100k again.

So this blog post is just an update do document my quest to get back to the top of my running. When I start running it is hard to do it.  My right knee still gives me problems.  Sometimes I do not know if it will allow me to make my goal or just force me to stop. I run here in Albany, GA along the Flint River or in the Albany Sand Dunes but sometime my mind drifs away to the trails in Austin along the Barton Creek.  I miss all of my running buddies.  I will hook up with a group of local runners this month so I will not be training alone for long.  Just like two years ago, I wanted to be able to run strong for 20 miles before I started running with other runners.  I am almost ready.

Configure federated sharing between two Outlook Live tenant organizations

The Outlook Live infrastructure is already federated with Microsoft Federation Gateway. All you need to do to enable federated sharing is create a new organizational relationship with another Outlook Live domain.

Before you begin

Federated sharing uses the autodiscover information in your domain to configure the federated relationship. You must make sure that both your organization and the partner organization have the CNAME autodiscover record configured in DNS. See Use a CNAME Record to Enable Outlook 2007 to Connect to Outlook Live.

Use Windows PowerShell to configure federated sharing in Outlook Live.

1. Connect Windows PowerShell to Outlook Live.

2. Run the following command to enable free/busy sharing between two Outlook Live organizations:

Get-FederationInformation –DomainName <the other tenant domain> | New-OrganizationRelationship -Name <the other tenant domain> -FreeBusyAccessEnabled $true -FreeBusyAccessLevel LimitedDetails

Here’s an example of what the command would look like in the Contoso scenario, where the administrator for the Contoso organization configures a federated sharing partnership with Fabrikam College:

Get-FederationInformation –DomainName fabrikam.edu | New-OrganizationRelationship -Name Fabrikam -Domainnames Fabrikam.edu -FreeBusyAccessEnabled $true -FreeBusyAccessLevel LimitedDetails

After proving once again that insanity is if doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, I am relieved that I finally have an operating system on the old HP DL380 G3. FreeBSD is always a good choice for difficult hardware.

Most Reliable Hosting Company Sites in May 2009 – Netcraft

Since I can not get CentOS 5.4 installed on the HP DL380 G3 I am considering using my old freind FreeBSD.  the problem with the HP server is Grub.  the old server BIOS does not let Grub work as a boot loader.  Lilo on the other hand may work.  I will attempt a FreeBSD install with Lilo as te boot loader.

New York Internet, pair Networks and INetU had the most reliable hosting company
sites in May 2009. Each of these sites responded resiliently to Netcraft’s
performance collectors throughout the month, with not a single failed
This is New York Internet’s second
consecutive appearance at the top. Established in 1996, the company’s core
services now include dedicated servers, colocation and virtual web hosting – all
backed with a 99.999% uptime
pair Networks also started off in 1996,
with a $10,000 family loan funding a single employee and a partial T-1 line. The
company has since grown to offer dedicated servers, virtual private servers and
high volume hosting from its own datacentres in Pennsylvania, which use GigE
connections to five diverse backbone networks.
INetU is an enterprise managed hosting
company, also located in Pennsylvania. They stand by their network performance
by offering a 100% uptime service level agreement. Managed services provided by
INetU include MySQL and MS SQL database clusters, Exchange servers,
virtualization and firewalls. Their clients include Fortune 500 companies such
as Microsoft, Intel and Northrop Grumman.
Among May’s top ten hosting company sites, three companies (including New
York Internet and pair Networks) run their sites on FreeBSD. Three other
companies run their sites on Linux, while the remaining two identifiable
operating systems are Windows Server 2003.

HP hardware supported by Linux

I have been searching for a way to get an old HP DL 380 G3 to boot CentOS 5.4.  It has problems with Grub.  I am going to try this solution. BTW this is my first post using Adobe Contribute.
Quoted from http://www.hyper-linux.org/HP-HOWTO/current/hp-hardware.html:

HP hardware supported by Linux

DL 360/380 G3
To install/use these machines under redHat 7.3 or 9, you have to pass the following parameter on the command line at boot time ide=nodma. You may also use the following command in the file /etc/rc.local

/sbin/hdparm -d0 /dev/hda

If the fans of DL360 G3 machines do not have an acceptable noise level after the boot either you install the hpasm driver for your distribution, or you update the BIOS of your machine (2003-04-08 or upper) P31
