    22 Jan 2015 | 1:41 pm
    Dieter Bohn and Tom Warren at The Verge had an amazing mixed realities experience at Microsoft. They tried out the HoloLens, a headset that projects holograms into real space. They report about having Minecraft on a coffee table and about an amazing experience during which an engineer who was communicating via Skype helped a reporter to fix a light switch, not only by talking but also by actually drawing on ‘his reality’. Sounds very weird but have a look at the video: The applications go far beyond gaming of course: all kinds of support and learning situations could benefit from…

    Lately I have seen a number of VMs going down after the backup has finished and snapshots get removed. At some point when cleaning the snapshot, the ESXi host decides something is wrong and then brings down the VM. After this we’re unable to power on the VM and receive the error: “Cannot open the disk ‘/vmfs/volumes/xxxxxxxxxx/xxxxx.vmdk’ or one of the snapshot disks it depends on”. When you then check the event details of the VM, you’ll see two messages: – “Cannot open the disk ‘/vmfs/volumes/xxxxxxxxxx/xxxxx.vmdk’ or one of the…

  • VMware Auto Deploy with MSCS won’t work

    Gabrie van Zanten
    27 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    Our environment is fully built using VMware Auto Deploy 5.1. All the clusters have their own ruleset and we’re very content on how easily we update our hosts and deploy new hosts. However, recently we ran into a major issue with Microsoft Cluster Services inside VMs in combination with VMware Auto Deploy. In a scenario with an “old fashioned” MCSC cluster across boxes with Physical RDMs shared between the two cluster nodes (VMs), these RDMs seem to be stopping an Auto Deployed ESXi host from reconnecting to vCenter Server after a reboot.  A normal reboot of an Auto…
  • [Powershell] vCPU to Physical Core for XenApp VM

    Gabrie van Zanten
    28 Apr 2014 | 10:29 am
    For our Citrix XenApp environment that runs on ESXi, we tend to keep a 1:1 ratio when it comes to physical cores and vCPUs. In other words, an ESXi host with 12 cores, will only be running 6 XenApp VMs with 2 cores or 3 XenApp VMs with 4 cores or any other combination, just as long as the vCPUs configured on the VM, never exceed the number of physical cores present in the host. What about Hyperthreading? The extra HyperThreads that a physical CPU offers are not used in the core to vCPU ratio because specifically in a Citrix XenApp workload, they don’t offer a guaranteed performance…

Perks of reaching 50 Or being over 60 And heading towards 70 or beyond! 1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you. 2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first. 3. No one expects you to run — anywhere. 4. People call at 9 PM (or 9 AM) and ask, ‘Did I wake you?’ 5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac. 6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way. 7.

The old Doberman thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep shit now!” Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the panther is about to leap, the old Doberman exclaims loudly, “Boy, that was one delicious panther! I wonder, if there are any more around here?” Hearing this, the young…

The letter read: Dear God, I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension payment. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with, have no…

  • Breakfast Topic: The places you love, the places you hate

    31 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    World of Warcraft is full of amazing environments where we quest, level, and raid -- but we probably don't hold every in-game locale equal in our hearts. There are dungeons I've only run once or twice, and there are dungeons I've run a hundred times. There are zones I go out of my way to quest through when I'm leveling an alt and there are zones I avoid like the plague (and, no, I'm not just talking about the plaguelands). I'm pretty sure I'm not alone here: we all have our favorite game zones that we return to again and again. Karazhan still tops my personal favorite places list, with a…

I don't really have a favorite dinosaur. Or it's more like I have so many favorite dinosaurs I can't pick one. And to be honest when I do sit down and think about my favorite dinosaurs, my opinion changes with the research to a degree. At the moment, I'm fond of Deinocheirus with those massive arms. But a lot of people ask me what's the deal with all the dinosaurs, like there's a proper age to like them, and I'm way, way…

    If you are looking for the best blender for any need, you should always consider reading all of the blender reviews on all of the blenders that you are considering for your needs. A blender review will be able to tell you most of what you need to know about the blenders you have chosen and will be able to help you have a better idea of what you are going to get when you get your actual blender. Check all of the reviews possible, including the negative ones, before you make the ultimate decision on which blender you want to buy. Waring Pro MX1000R: The Reasonably Good Professional Blender…

    Last night’s widespread outage of iinet, Australia’s second-largest Internet Service Provider, was bad enough. For hours, many of iinet’s customers had little or no access to the assorted services that they were paying for due to a cooling failure at an iinet data-centre, during record-breaking heat. Bad enough, but iinet’s communications people actually managed to make things even worse than that, failing to communicate clearly, just when the company and its customers needed it most.

    Earlier this month, Elliot Rodger (22) made a short video and wrote a 137 page manifesto before going on a killing spree in Santa Barbara, killing six people before dying himself. Rodger is variously described as a geek, a gamer, and a sexist. And you know? None of those are of any importance in Rodger’s case. The fact is that Elliot Rodger was such a dysfunctional, broken individual that none of the rest of it is even relevant. Read more ... Ads by Project Wonderful!

    The other day, travelling from an unfamiliar part of town back home through heavy traffic, I decided to just let Google Maps call the shots. I could have navigated myself, just using major routes that went towards areas I knew, but I decided to see what Google Maps did for me. It took me on a rather interesting journey. Read more ...

  • Microsoft’s HoloLens delivers a new level of augmented reality

    rolandlegrand
    22 Jan 2015 | 1:41 pm
    Dieter Bohn and Tom Warren at The Verge had an amazing mixed realities experience at Microsoft. They tried out the HoloLens, a headset that projects holograms into real space. They report about having Minecraft on a coffee table and about an amazing experience during which an engineer who was communicating via Skype helped a reporter to fix a light switch, not only by talking but also by actually drawing on ‘his reality’. Sounds very weird but have a look at the video: The applications go far beyond gaming of course: all kinds of support and learning situations could benefit from…

    A short but beautiful video featuring the grandfather of virtual reality, professor Tom Furness. He can be situated directly into a tradition which goes back to Vannevar Bush, who in 1945 described the Memex-device in As We May Think – a technological dream of making knowledge accessible in ways corresponding to the complexities and challenges of the contemporary world. Bush and Furness have a military background in common, and the desire to give humanity the tools needed to do something about very urgent and complex issues. Without further ado, here is the video from Sebastian Sanchez:

    Virtuix, the maker of the virtual reality treadmill Omni, prepares applications beyond gaming. Here you see the treadmill in a gaming context: Roel Verrycken, the US correspondent of the Belgian newspaper De Tijd, had an interview with founder Jan Goetgeluk and asked which new applications his company is developing. Goetgeluk: For training police or military personnel. We have a special military version which is a bit bigger and sturdier and which has some additional functions. Recently we participated at a specialized fair and there’s a lot of interest from that sector. Remember the…

    How would immersive journalism look like? Immersive as in ‘immersing the reader/viewer/participant into a situation in such a way she learns something new’? Actually there exists a website immersivejournalism.com where journalist and scholar Nonny de la Peña discusses her work and ideas about this topic. I first encountered this work of hers in Second Life in 2010: But you’ll notice how she evolves and now uses virtual reality tools for her newest projects, about food banks… …or about Syrian refugees: Immersive video Now I learned about a project by another team…
  • Author Neal Stephenson joins Magic Leap as Chief Futurist

    rolandlegrand
    17 Dec 2014 | 12:11 pm
    Neal Stephenson is the author of Snow Crash, a book which helped me ‘get’ virtual worlds. Today he announces in a blog post that he agreed to become Chief Futurist of Magic Leap, which is a secretive company working on something which seems to get rid of keyboards and other clunky computer stuff in order to make things appear out of thin air. As Snow Crash was all about virtual reality and augmented reality (in 1992!), it seems to make sense to ask such a visionary author to become Futurist of this secretive company.

    I've been helping some of the teams at our company put together short videos for our semiannual all hands meeting. I decided to throw one in for my department and ended up taking a post from last February, editing into a prose poem, and shooting a ranting performance with a much darker edge.(By the way, I'm still furiously working on the novel, rewriting a lot as I go. It's up to about 13,000 words so far. It's been a lot of fun so far, although still 90% or so to go. I'll post another excerpt soon.)

Hopefully, it leaves you wanting to know what happens next.I woke up floating twenty feet above the floor in what looked like some kinked-out rich fuck’s professionally designed medieval dungeon room. The rough cut stone walls were lined with faux flaming torches providing spot illumination for a collection of torture devices arrayed artfully around the perimeter.

I hope to have time over the weekend to flesh it out.Each medium and platform has its own push and pull moving users to actualize their ideas in certain ways.

    If you are looking for the best blender for any need, you should always consider reading all of the blender reviews on all of the blenders that you are considering for your needs. A blender review will be able to tell you most of what you need to know about the blenders you have chosen and will be able to help you have a better idea of what you are going to get when you get your actual blender. Check all of the reviews possible, including the negative ones, before you make the ultimate decision on which blender you want to buy. Waring Pro MX1000R: The Reasonably Good Professional Blender…

    In the world of software design and E-Learning, getting to know your end-users is critically important for a variety of reasons. Take an average mid-level business, for example- there will be employees that encompass various age groups, professional backgrounds, reading levels, computer proficiency levels, and dozens of other demographics that will define how each user learns. While it is certainly a challenge to cater to all of these audiences at once, there is a number of ways to accomplish this task. How Do Learners Really Learn? To compound those problems even further, there is no…

    The corporate world is all about making profits for its stockholders– basically the bottom line for businesses today. Of course, the “trickle-down effect” also helps employees make money and hold steady jobs – a very good thing in today’s ambiguous economy, given its up and down fluctuations. For companies and corporations to succeed today, then, businesses either need to recruit new customers on a continual basis, develop loyalty with past customers to keep doing business with them, or achieve some combination of both of these strategies. With so many companies…

    While the term “performance support” is certainly not a new phrase, it definitely has a new feel in the workplace thanks to the advances in smartphones. In fact, it wasn’t too long ago when companies faced massive logistical problems when it came time to update their staff members on new policies and practices, and the costs alone from productivity losses made these training sessions a real nightmare. Mobile performance support provides training when and where it is most convenient. Here are just a few of the major benefits of mobile performance support- True Knowledge on…

    Try Avoiding These 5 Mistakes in E-Learning Beginning a new E-Learning project is an exciting time. Project sponsors are anxious to see their ROI, management teams are ready to exceed expectations, and development teams are eager to bring their innovative ideas to life. However, rushing into the project without appropriate planning can cause catastrophic problems. Take the time to start projects on the right foot and avoid these five common mistakes: Unrealistic Goals/Deadlines An initial step in any E-Learning project is to outline goals and project deadlines. Unfortunately, this first step…

    We will plead guilty from the get-go that we’re not a disinterested third party when it comes to championing the rise of serious games and gamification. It’s one of our core competencies here at Designing Digitally, Inc. and we love designing and developing these programs for higher education, military, government and corporate clients. Plus, our team loves making them! But we’re certainly not alone in seeing their vast promise for training and employee engagement, and this time around we’re hijacking the crystal ball of serious media maven, Forbes, as they share their…

    So yesterday I did the Christmas Hunt at Inspiration Point.  It’s sponsored by Boogers, Kirin, Tee*fy, The Secret Store, Flowey, MishMish, Pizza, Jim, Intrigue Co., and Pilot.  You get a hud with a map on it that helps you track what you’ve found and what you haven’t, which is a great idea. The map is not to scale.  But it’s close enough to be helpful most of the time. And the sim.  I don’t know who designed it, but they have winterized it and it’s just beautiful.  Turn on the region windlight to get the full effect.  It’s really gorgeous. Many…

  • One Theme, Three Ways: Customizing Twenty Fifteen

    Ben Huberman
    27 Jan 2015 | 8:00 am
    Our default theme this year, Twenty Fifteen, draws visitors’ eyes to what matters most — the text and images you publish on your site. Crisp typography, generous spacing, streamlined navigation: Twenty Fifteen shows that less can indeed be more (and that it can look great on any device). Keeping things simple and streamlined doesn’t mean you can’t make a theme your own, of course. From free custom color schemes (pictured in the gallery above) to a vertical header area with ample space to channel your (and your site’s) personality, Twenty Fifteen is a…
