  1. Ubuntu & OpenStack running in a VM

    December 24, 2013 by The Man

    If you want to have a little play around with OpenStack before diving in or maybe you want to develop some cool software to interface with it, it can be handy to run OpenStack in a VM or on a single machine. Here is how I did it.

    1. I’m following the guide from http://devstack.org/guides/single-machine.html who have a handy script to automate the install.

    2. I’m using Ubuntu 13.10 64bit minimal version from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD

    3. Install Ubuntu as you would normally.

    4. Update with sudo apt-get update

  2. Get rid of the dock icon for Skydrive on OS X

    Why this wasn’t the default is beyond me but….

    defaults write /Applications/SkyDrive.app/Contents/Info.plist LSUIElement 1

    Also it’s a long way off Dropbox functionality, thank god for the 25Gb
