OVH Public Cloud CentOS 7 Change Hostname

If you’ve tried to change the hostname on your OVH public cloud instance running CentOS 7, you may have had issues with it persisting after reboot.

Took me way to long to find this solution, but someone had already spent way too much time figuring it out.

This GitHub Gist explains it all https://gist.github.com/zmjwong/77ee37deb1749c2582eb

Basically you need to edit /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg and add “preserve_hostname: true” and then set your hostname using hostnamectl.

hostnamectl –transient set-hostname your.new.hostname
hostnamectl –static set-hostname your.new.hostname

Hope that helps and thank zmjwong!

Thunderbird still has potential to fly despite developers leaving the nest

Thunderbird is a pretty great open sourced mail client that is available on multiple platforms and for free. From the beginning its development has been mostly be shadowed by FireFox. The two core developers of Thunderbird have left Mozilla, which is a big blow to the ongoing development of Thunderbird. Will Thunderbird not longer get as many updates or new features? Will development complete stop? Only time will tell.

iriver’s UNIT2 detailed on teaser site

One of the sexist and functional MP3 devices I've seen yet. The iPod had its time, and even the smallest iPod is really sexy. But this is just over the top.
iriver's UNIT2 detailed on teaser site -

Filed under: , ,


Mmm, there's nothing like fragmented high-resolution photos of a lust-worthy device to get us salivating, and iriver's marketing department has done an exquisite job figuring that out. Shortly after unveiling the sexiest e-dictionary known to man, the much anticipated UNIT2 conglomerate received its own teaser site, complete with photos and a few extra details you should know. While it has yet to lose its mystique, we now know (officially, at least) that the base will act as a DVD player, TV tuner, access point, charging station, hard drive, and a speaker station. Aside from sporting an SD slot and USB connectivity, this beauty will handle music, movies, photos, eBooks, and WiFi streaming without breaking a sweat. Mechanically, you can expect an automatic sliding door, detachable display, slot-loaded CD / DVD deck, and a 78-key controller to manage the fun. No word yet on the price, but be sure to peek the additional photos below.
