Ash taking her medicine like a good girl!!

Remember to add the line

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php

to the httpd.conf file to enable php on apache server (check this after upgrading httpd)

This has caught me out a couple of times!! should really know better by now but how often do you need to change your configs?

So I bought myself some sushi making stuff, bamboo rolling mat, rice vinegar, soy sauce, wasabi, nori and sushi rice in an effort to try and eat a little better and make some nice food for lunch at university.

This is the first batch I made.

I give myself a 7/10 for these, they tasted like sushi but were lacking something, maybe more vinegar and they were a little bit big ( just slightly too large for a comfortable mouthful ). I think I need to work on the sizes of the fillings and maybe a little thinner/more even layering of the rice.

Anyway I consider it a success.

Having got hold of a Cisco router I had to try to connect to it via my Windows installed in VirtualBox, problem was the COM port was not recognised in the VirtualBox settings, every time I tried to start windows it failed with an error, one of these errors suggested checking the permissions and user groups to make sure these were correct.

Turns out I needed to add my (host) user to the correct group, use the command
ls -l /dev/ttyS*
to list the current groups for tty's.

As can be seen here the serial ports are all in the dialout group so using the user manager I added myself to the dialout group. Once that was done ( remember to logout and back in once you change group associations!! ) I set up the serial port in the virtualbox settings COM1, choose the Host Device option and add /dev/ttyS0 as the path.

Once this was done I started Windows and it now booted fine and once I was logged in, Windows detected new hardware and installed it.

Now I am able to console into the router and all is good.
