Ubuntu 14.10 - Much ado about nothing?

I really hate to pile on to all of the lukewarm reviews for Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn), but I'm going to anyway.  There has been a lot of buzz about this release, being that it is the 10th anniversary of the distributions initial release.  Unfortunately it's more of a maintenance release than anything.  While stability and security updates are a good thing, I guess we just all expected something flashy or innovative with this release.  As always, update servers are slammed, so I wouldn't worry too much if you aren't one of the first ones to upgrade.  You're not missing much.

CA ARCServe on Ubuntu

I've been extremely busy the past few months, but wanted to throw a quick post up before I forget.  If you're unfortunate enough to have to run CA ARCServe (BrightStor or whatever else they are calling it this week), then you know what I pain it can be getting it going on Linux boxen.  The install scripts aren't the best, and I have yet to find a single version that will install without some kind of tweak to the install scripts.
I had to update the agent on my Ubuntu desktop today and as usual, it barfed.  I happened to do a quick search and ran across a great port that provided a quick fix without all the usual hack-and-slash that I usually have to perform.
Props to Nik!

Not ready for IPv6?

Nothing much here, but thought it might be helpful.  I had a situation this morning where I needed to disable IPv6 on a server and a quick search yielded this nugget:
