Virtual Volumes and Dokan

It has been a holy grail for many years now and it is very close. The ability to assign a drive letter to your linux filesystems under Windows.

I am doing some final tests on my first release of Virtual Volumes which includes support for Dokan. Dokan is the Windows equivalent of FUSE under Linux. This means you can implement a filesystem in a userspace application.

There are some knows issues but my Windows XP install test was successful and I am currently doing some large file testing. If all goes well I might get a beta version released this weekend.

The blog is back

After some time (4 years) I have a blog again. I have been doing a lot with CentOS 6 and I need somewhere to post my results so this will be it. Probably with some general Linux & PC things, filesystems, networks and even the odd opinion on something non-technical.

I found my old blog here
I'll try and syndicate that over here once I work out how blogger works.
