xming tunnel TCP/IP in mails (334 comments)

Use some livecCD or Alpine Linux to create your own CD, and tunnel IP in mails for the fun :D If the latency is less than the TCP time-out you might even get a decent ssh connection.

Linux 3.17-rc2 Release Marks 23 Years of the Linux Kernel

xming Re:Poll idea (106 comments)

22 years give or take, started with SLS, can't remember which version probably older than this one as I can vaguely remember kernel 0.97 but SLS 1.03 has kernel 0.98pl.

Linux Kernel 2.6.32 Released

xming kvm and ksm (195 comments)

kvm (with a little patch) supports it, running it right now with 5 guests and have 53K pages which are shared. # cat /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/pages_sharing 53714 That's ~200MB for about 1,5GB memory used on the host. Now I can't figured out how many times those pages are shared, so I can't calculated the actual memory saved (it's between 200MB and 4x200MB).
