Radar Runs

Sadly, you can no longer reach the top of the mountain any more.
And here is a day time run from 2014.

Location: The Lyndonville Air Force Station, initially known as North Concord Air Force Station. An abandoned general surveillance radar station that became operational in 1956 and was decommissioned in 1963

Removing Nag Dialog from Proxmox 4.x

I received this tip from a co-worker on how to remove the nag dialog box upon login to the Proxmox 4.x web-UI.

  1.  Edit: /usr/share/pve-manager/ext6/pvemanagerlib.js
  2. Search for: ‘Active’
  3. Replace:
if (data.status !== ‘Active’) {


if (false && data.status !== ‘Active’) {

You will need to close and re-open your web browser / clear your cache to see the box removed.

Again like I said last time regarding guilt; there is support from Proxmox available if you feel guilty about using the “hack”

Removing the Proxmox 3.1 subscription nag dialog

If you’re annoyed by the nag dialog that pops up when you log into your Proxmox 3.1 community install, run this patch from VM server in question.

wget http://www.tolaris.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/no_subscription_popup_pvemanagerlib.js-3.1.patch -O - | patch -p0

Piping that download through patch, will apply the fix to the appropriate file (/usr/share/pve-manager/ext4/pvemanagerlib.js)

Log out of the web UI, and possibly clear your browser cache / close browser window.

Having said that, there is support from Proxmox available if you feel guilty about using the patch.

Mountain Lion & Calendar

In OS X 10.8 I’ve found a few issues where the Calendar application won’t show calendars properly from any other service, including Google and iCloud. My solution was to clear the cache located in “~/Library/Calendars/Calendar Cache”

Do this with the program closed, then go into System Preferences and re-enable your Calendar accounts.
