Riverbed Steelhead: Purdy kernel panic message :)

Warning: Use of undefined constant user_level - assumed 'user_level' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /homepages/3/d98111892/htdocs/insanelabs/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/ultimate-google-analytics/ultimate_ga.php on line 524

So I was playing around with a brand new Steelhead web accelerator appliance. Curiosity made me try to virtualize the darn thing and see if I can get it to work with multiple NICS and without the fancy box. Since nothing is impossible and no one was around to stop me, I created an image of the drive and converted it to a VMware Server virtual appliance… it MUST be a *nix flavor, right? No doubt! Who the heck would ever think of Redmond when it comes to creativity?

I was right because the first thing I ran into was a kernel panic. I decided to screenshot and post it for everyone to see… it’s “slightly” different than a normal kernel panic:

There it is. I leave it to you to figure out why I liked it. To the Riverbed guys: nice touch 🙂

P.S. Don’t ask about what happened after I took care of the panicing kernel… hush!
