My name is Karyl F. Stein and this is my website--a place to collect artifacts related to my family and interests. Family and friends may enjoy the journal entries. Perhaps some will wonder how I prepared a certain meal and look up the recipe. Searches for technical setup or configuration help may lead to one of my articles. Others may wonder how they got to this site and quickly run away! Whatever your reason for being here you are welcome and I hope that you find something interesting or useful within these pages.
A naming convention is a way to give names to devices on a network so they are descriptive or easier to type into a connection string. In college I was a network administrator for the "spirits" lab where the various terminals had names like "vodka", "rum", etc. I did not start this, but did later modified it in another environment so that certain types of alcoholic beverages referred to a certain type of item e.g. switches were beers, servers were wines, etc.
I recently bought a car with Android Auto. While the car's native infotainment system was pretty good and integrated so you could do things like change audio settings and channels with voice commands, it was restrictive in what you could say to it and you could not send text messages via voice. One thing that I wanted to be able to do is not only hear the messages read back to me, (which it did fine), but also reply or generate a new text message, (which it did not do). So I enabled Android Auto and thought things would be good. However, as soon as I asked Google to text someone, it responded that I needed to enable more access.

This parody was written for one of our team members at work when she left the company leaving behind some ongoing projects. It contains references to projects and vendors specific to our job, so some things may not make sense.

If you’re having time problems I feel bad for you son;
I got 99 problems, but K2 ain’t one.
I got…the QC control on the mouse patrol--
Those that wanna make sure the defect’s closed.
Testers cryin’ out that the software blows.
I’m IT stupid what type of facts are those?
