A host only network interface you’re attempting to configure via DHCP already has a conflicting host only adapter

Using Vagrant on a new machine on Ubuntu 14.04 this morning cause me quite some trouble when doing a simple “vagrant up”. The message:

A host only network interface you’re attempting to configure via DHCP already has a conflicting host only adapter with DHCP enabled. The DHCP on this adapter is incompatible with the DHCP settings. Two host only network interfaces are not allowed to overlap, and each host only network interface can have only one DHCP server. Please reconfigure your host only network or remove the virtual machine using the other host only network.

This led me on a search to understand the problem and find the following simple answer, remove the DHCP server on the machine by doing:

VBoxManage dhcpserver remove --netname HostInterfaceNetworking-vboxnet0

Support a sick friend, buy a cool coder t-shirt!

One of my friend is sick with leukemia LAL a special form of leukemia that cannot be cured with standard medication. Sadly, that non-standard medication is not covered and she doesn’t have enough cash on hand to pay for it. She’s doomed unless we poll together.

I created a teespring campaign with a cool t-shirt for coders, all profits will go to her fund raising to help her pay for her treatment:

Thanks in advance!

Offloading dependencies to third party users, right or wrong?

I’ve been working at a big business for the last year and a half and i have seen my share of bad practices since i started.

But at least, one would think that correct application infrastructure was a must for large business like those. Today, i want to talk about application intercommunication and the best and worst practice you can do on that part.

Sleepless nights and joyful days incoming!

I’m proud to announce officialy today that my wife and i are expecting a son or daugther (Looks more like a daugther so far but we ain’t sure) for the end of august 2015.

If you have never been through the process of creating a kid from scratch using InVitro procedures, let me tell you it’s not easy, mostly for the mother, thats true, but the father still has to cope with a lot of emotions.

It has recently been 8 years that we have been waiting for this event to come by and in less than 5 months, it will be a new reality for both of us.

I wish to thank everyone who kept my spirit up all along. It wasn’t easy but i can now say that things will be brighter than ever. Even if we’ll have dreadfully short nights, we’ll have joyful mornings!
