Today: took kids to the park to enjoy this beautiful weather. Got back, set up a GitHub account for my daughter and showed her the basics of Git using ‘gitk’ as the client. Also got Nasu compiled and running, but an hour of technical stuff got her younger sister jealous and so we must break until tomorrow.

vagrant-libvirt and Bridged Networking

Once I had a way to install virtual machines on my Ubuntu home lab server, my next goal was to be able to directly SSH into them from my laptop.
