Hi there, I am downloading on my spare laptop El Cap right now. But it is confusing. You can find it via this link - but it is not seen when you go directly to the (Canadian) App Store. Confusing. Hope the US App Store is better behaved (I hear it is). This may not … Continue reading OSX 10.11 El Capitan is now GA

Moving from iPhone 6 to iPhone 6s
Hello there, I have not written this sort of thing down before, in particular when an Apple Watch is involved. So here is what worked for me (and yes, I do use the iTunes connected method as I believe that is most reliable and even faster too). Make sure that the old iPhone is fully … Continue reading Moving from iPhone 6 to iPhone 6s
Have Apple Watch? Got a new iPhone? This might help!
Hi there, Just a few minutes ago they tried to deliver my new iPhone 6s. I know that thanks to my doorbell. Too bad I wasn't there. In anticipation of having it soon, I was reading a review of the new iPhone 6s and I found it very interesting about how the writer got his … Continue reading Have Apple Watch? Got a new iPhone?

Enable VPN to the home lab - on RV325 - the wrong way
Update: After further research, and some excellent info from readers, I have decided to say that you should not use this information. This is not a safe feature to use in any equipment. In fact it is hard to believe that Cisco ships the unit with this feature enabled. Password length and complexity will not … Continue reading Enable VPN to the home lab - on RV325 - the wrong way
iOS 9 is here!
Hi there, I have been waiting for this. Things work a little faster, and I love the idea of split screen and I think the 3D Touch (with a new phone which is on order) is pretty handy . I have updated two old iPads and an iPad Air 2, and an iPhone 4s and … Continue reading iOS 9 is here!

Newsletter: September 13, 2015
Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a great week? Maybe some fun this weekend? My wife and I did a long hard hike yesterday. Very nice, but hard which means long, and a lot of elevation gain, and loss. But a wonderful day. I am working on upgrading my lab to make sure that all … Continue reading Newsletter: September 13, 2015
Installing and configuring vSphere 6.0 VMware Update Manager
Hi there, As part of the Basic vSphere 6 lab setup article, we are now with the VMware Update Manager (VUM) setup article. The timing is good since yesterday Update 1 dropped. And that is big since - among many reasons - it has the VAMI back, and it provides full configuration and use of … Continue reading Installing and configuring vSphere 6.0 VMware Update Manager
Thinking of 9/11
Hi all, This is a little different article from me. But I wanted to share some thoughts on my experience on 9/11 - 14 years ago today. I was on-board a cruise ship with my family midpoint along the Canadian Coast heading up to Alaska. Did not have much video or pictures but there was … Continue reading Thinking of 9/11
