Time saviour

Virtualisation is so damn useful. I'm currently trying to figure out why the new kernel update at work doesn't boot[1]. Thanks to VMWare, after each failed boot I can quickly revert to the previous state before the update. No messing around trying to restore the old kernel or reinstall the system [2].

  • [1] Python work is much more fun
  • [2] Before anyone says "why don't you just install the old and new kernels side-by-side?": the update is fairly major and involves a bunch of userspace libraries and binaries as well.
