When I am not flying little airplanes or exploring various far-flung parts of this delightful orb we ride on I have the the privilege of helping others solve interesting techonolgy problems. In my spare time I also wrote a silly little URL shortener, called uber.hk, some tools to help manage your BlackBerry, track your finances, visualize data, and share your pictures.
If I were asked to summarise myself I'd probably use words like aviator, technologist, whovian, and possibly gamer and geek. I respond enthusiastically to interesting challanges and problems needing solutions.
I like cloud methodology but generally distrust "the cloud". So far this works out OK for me since I have a very complete personal IT infrastructure.
Outside of technology I enjoy travel, which is one of the reasons I enjoy aviation. At last count I have visited 4 continents, 46 airports, and 4 countries in the last few years. At some point I think it would be neat to own a plane, though being a member of the Williamson Flying Club does make it easy to reap the benifits without quite as much of the cost.
- Screenfetch analog for NetApp Data ONTAP!
So I found myself stumbling across /r/unixporn/ the other day and a fair number of people seem to use screenfetch to display information about their systems in the screenshots they post.
While a little geeky, I found myself wondering if I could do something like this for NetApp systems. For unrelated reasons I had a FAS3070 sitting in the basement over the weekend so I figured I would give it a whirl.
If you fancy a copy, it is available over at http://uber.hk/IUMK, which links to my git repository. I may eventually make a version that uses the NetApp NMSDK, but for the moment I wanted to avoid that.
Enjoy, and feel free to e-mail me screenshots of your NetApp systems!
