VirtualBox Vyatta router lab with Masquerade NAT

How to setup Vyatta router bridged in VirtualBox on Windows 7 and connect another guest VM behind the Vyatta router on the VirtualBox internal network. I sometimes cut out reboot sequences and increase the video speed to help reduce overall video length..

You can add additional guests and use the IP of the Vyatta eth1 (internal int) for the gateway. VirtualBox will act as a switch. Use internal network adapters, promisc Allow VMs to communicate within VirtualBox.

VNC Mirror driver detected as secondary monitor

I was having an issue with a program behaving as though there were two monitors. The ATI video card had dual ports but only one monitor. I tried many things like reinstalling drivers and making sure the display setting is not extended or duplicated.

Ultimately it was the VNC Mirror Driver. I was able to fix and then “break” again by toggling between Enabled/Disabled under Device Manager > Display Adapters > VNC Mirror Driver > right-click Disable. So I uninstalled the mirror driver.

Armistead’s Ague Tonic Mouse Trap Tilt Toy

Found among other junk is a promotional advertising toy. It is a mouse in a meat storage room that you have to get into the mousetrap. The mouse has a little ball under it that it rolls on. The clear cover is close enough to keep it from flipping over, yet still slide around. There is a tiny little metal flap on the trap. It keeps the mouse in the trap unless you give it a little shake. But it also makes it a little harder to get into the trap without a shake as well.

The Armistead’s Ague Tonic label on the back and the pork meat on the inside show the connection of two businesses at William M. Akin & Company. Established in 1848 by William M. Akin Sr..
