XW6600 WOL – stopped working on Windows 10 – my trusty APC PDU to the rescue

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/17

A long time ago I wrote in Mac/PC: sending Wake-on-LAN (WOL) packets « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff “I’ve succesfully woken up these machines: HP XW6600 running ESXi 5.1 ThinkPad W701U running Windows 7”.

The XW6600 have now been demoted to Windows 10 machines that I only need every now and then, so most of the time they are shutdown.

However, with the installation of Windows 10 however, they stopped reacting to WOL (Wake on LAN).

Per web-search results, I’ve tried all the permutations of the below settings to no avail.

Luckily, my trusty APC PDU AP7921 (and little sister AP7920) helped out: when setting the “Reboot Duration” to 30 seconds or more (so the power fully drains), it can be rebooted.

How Douglas Engelbart Invented the Future | Innovation | Smithsonian

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/15

Two decades before the personal computer, a shy engineer unveiled the tools that would drive the tech revolution

Don’t read this as a historic piece, but as the potential we are still going to experience what was not just sketched by a true visionary in 1968, but also demonstrated back then: [Archive.isHow Douglas Engelbart Invented the Future | Innovation | Smithsonian.

I am including one of the pictures below by Christie Hemm Klok that shows how far Engelbart was ahead of his time: not his initial invention of an input device (the mouse) “chord” kind.

After that, read about his 1968 presentation: The Mother of All Demos – Wikipedia

Finally, watch the video below, well worth watching the more than one and a half hours.
