    Great episode! You’re work on Virtual Machines is awesome and love seeing the many uses of having a VM server at home!

    The WMV Download cuts out too early. Ends in the middle of the Go To Meeting segment.

    Had to watch the stream to finish the episode.

    Keep up the great work!

    I keep seeing Darrin mention his Alpha USB wireless adapter that has an atheros chipset in it. I’ve tried to find this and all of the Alpha USB adapters I’ve seen have the ralink chipset. Where can I find the one that Darrin keeps showing?

  • loving the new shows in SFO!! Jason is a great addition to Hak5. please keeping do more Boxee segments.

    Why use Ampache or Edna when you got goody things like Spotify

    Amazing how the Evil Server seemed to be running the whole time, the ethernet busy light flashed twice as well. Probably trying to tweet “Fire! Hot! Bad! Halp!”…

    Works great on 10.04! However did the same tutorial on a new machine running Ubuntu 10.10 and it didn’t work. I couldn’t even get to “localhost/ampache” just game me an error, “The requested URL /ampache was not found on this server.”

    • sudo ln -s /etc/ampache/ampache.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/
      sudo service apache2 restart

    • I had this problem too… to fix it just run these 2 commands

      sudo ln -s /etc/ampache/ampache.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/
      sudo service apache2 restart

      this should tell apache where to find the files necessary for /ampache

    In this episode you mentioned putting the wireless devices in your show notes, where do I find the show notes with the device manufacturers and models?
