Lurry hands him a small packet Wheat. So what? Of course, I wouldn't expect you or Mister Spock to know about such things, but quadrotriticale is a rather SPOCK: Quadrotriticale is a high-yield grain, a four-lobed hybrid of wheat and rye.

A perennial, also, I believe. Its root grain, triticale, can trace its ancestry all the way back to twentieth century Canada KIRK: Mister Spock, you've made your point.

We have several tons of it here on the station. It's very important that grain gets to Sherman's Planet safely. Mister Baris thinks that Klingon agents may try to sabotage it.

KIRK: You issued a priority one distress call for a couple of tons of wheat? You'll take full responsibility for it. I want that grain protected.

We do have a large number of ships passing through. The Sherman's Planet affair is of extreme importance to the Federation. KIRK: Secure from general quarters.

And beam down two, and only two, security guards. Have them report to Mister Lurry. Authorise shore leave for all off-duty personnel.

KIRK: Kirk out. Until now. Wherever humanoids may travel, someone will set up a bar to have pretty females serve intoxicating beverages.

K7 is no exception. Storage compartments of wheat. KIRK: I guess not. KIRK: I see you didn't waste time taking your shore leave. Excuse me.

I've read about this, but I've never seen any before. KIRK: Does everybody know about this wheat but me?

It's a Russian invention. KIRK: Ah. Kirk and Spock leave. I told you before, and I'm telling you again I don't want any more Spican flame gems.

Thanks to you, I have enough Spican flame gems to last me a lifetime. You won't find a finer stone anywhere. But I have something better. Surely you want some Antarian glow water.

Surely you want from yet another pocket, the trader pulls a what looks like a ball of fluff. Is it alive? May I hold it?

What is it? Why, lovely lady, it's a tribble. Listen, it's purring. Now you can see for yourself how much the lovely little lady appreciates the finer things.

JONES: Sir, transporting harmful animals from one planet to another is against regulations, or weren't you aware of that? Besides, tribbles have no teeth.

I'll double my offer 2 credits. I think he's cute. I'll tell you what I'm going to do I'm going to lessen my price to eight and a half credits.

Six credits. Not a credit more. All right, you robber, six credits. When can I have them? Figure a reasonable mark-up for a reasonable profit, say ten percent mark-up.

Ten credits. He's eating my grain. And I please to give it to the lovely lady. Could I? JONES: Once this lovely little lady starts to show this precious little darling around, you won't be able to keep up with them.

KIRK: Yes, what is it? Admiral Fitzpatrick speaking. The key to our winning of this planet is the grain quadrotriticale. The shipment of it must be protected.

Effective immediately, you will render any aid and assistance which Undersecretary Baris may require. The safety of the grain and the project is your responsibility.

Starfleet out. KIRK: Now, that's just lovely. Captain Kirk! Notify Mister Lurry. We'll be right up. It's just sitting there.

KIRK: Put him on visual. KIRK: Why not? We'll beam right down. Captain's log, stardate A Klingon warship is hovering only a hundred kilometres from Deep Space Station K7 while its captain waits in the station manager's office.

Their intentions are unknown. False smiles all round as Kirk and Spock are greeted by a Klingon who very closely resembles the Squire of Gothos As I've already told Mister Lurry, the purpose of my presence is to invoke shore leave rights.

KIRK: Shore leave? We do not equip our ships with, how shall I say it, non-essentials. What we choose as recreation is our own business.

Mister Lurry is in charge of those matters. My dear Captain Koloth, you may indeed bring your men down on shore leave, but only twelve at a time.

And I assure you, for every man you bring down here, I shall have one security guard. There will be no trouble. So, naturally, our relationship will be a peaceful one.

KIRK: Let us both take steps to keep it that way. Scott is at a monitor, reading, when Spock and Kirk enter.

KIRK: Don't you ever relax? There is a crowd at a long table, and there are purring sounds. This morning, I found out that he, I mean she, had had babies.

Well, I hadn't intended to, sir, but the tribble had other plans. KIRK: Did you get this at the space station? Its trilling seems to have a tranquillising effect on the human nervous system.

Fortunately, of course, I am immune to its effect. Everyone stares, he suddenly realises what he is doing, and puts it down.

Spock and Kirk leave. Seeing as you're giving them away, can I have one? I think they're old enough. Mister Baris is coming on. What can I do for you?

Now, I want you to keep that grain safe. I have guards around the Klingons. The only reason those guards are there is because Starfleet wants them there.

As for what you want pauses at a look from Spock It has been noted and logged. KIRK: Sickbay with a headache. There are eleven fluffy tribbles of various sizes and colour in a large container.

KIRK: Bones, what have you got for a headache? KIRK: Both. How many of these did Uhura give you? KIRK: But you've got, er, eleven.

This ought to take care of it. KIRK: How do they? How do they? Almost fifty percent of the creature's metabolism is geared for reproduction.

Do you know what you get if you feed a tribble too much? KIRK: A fat tribble. You get a bunch of hungry little tribbles. KIRK: All you men going on shore leave to stay in groups.

Avoid trouble with the Klingons. KIRK: I want you to go on shore leave. Make sure that everybody stays out of trouble. Aye, sir. KIRK: Scotty, enjoy yourself.

Business is good. Scott, Chekov and Freeman take the last vacant table. Two security men leave and Jones enters, whistling. Can I offer you a charming little tribble?

Perhaps one of you other gents? Can I interest you in a harmless tribble? The tribble screeches.

I can't understand it. I've never seen them act this way before. Ah, my good friend. How would you like to enter another little transaction?

The pretty lady in yellow brings our group their drinks. This is a drink for a man. Korax goes over to the bar and shares his drink with Jones.

They remind me of Regulan blood worms. You ought to be more forgiving. I just remembered. There is one Earthman who doesn't remind me of a Regulan blood worm.

That's Kirk. A Regulan blood worm is soft and shapeless, but Kirk isn't soft. Kirk may be a swaggering, overbearing, tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood, but he's not soft.

Everybody's entitled to an opinion. It's not worth fighting for. We're big enough to take a few insults. Now, drink your drink. We like the Enterprise.

We, we really do. That sagging old rust bucket is designed like a garbage scow. Half the quadrant knows it. That's why they're learning to speak Klingonese.

I didn't mean to say that the Enterprise should be hauling garbage. I meant to say that it should be hauled away as garbage. There's a fight, of course.

Scott's first right cross sends Korax flying over a table. After that, it's the Klingons versus Starfleet, with the barman beating a retreat and Jones taking the opportunity to help himself to drinks from the dispensing machine.

Finally he decides to leave with his spoils and is about to enjoy his last glass when the Security guards rush in followed by the Barman, who takes the glass just before it reaches Jones' lips.

So he takes another out of his pocket instead. A small disturbance between the Klingon crew and members of the Enterprise crew has broken out aboard Space Station K7.

I am forced to cancel shore leave for both ships. Ten men are lined up. Chekov has a nice bruise on his cheek. KIRK: I want to know who started it.

I'm waiting. Freeman, who started the fight? KIRK: All right. I know you. You started it, didn't you? KIRK: Who did? KIRK: I don't know, sir.

I want to know who threw the first punch. All right. You're all confined to quarters until I find out who started it. You were supposed to prevent trouble, Mister Scott.

What caused it, Scotty? KIRK: Must have been some insult. KIRK: You threw the first punch. Chekov wanted to, but I held him back. KIRK: You held?

Why did Chekov want to start a fight? Is this off the record? KIRK: No, this is not off the record. KIRK: Is that all?

They also compared you with a Denebian slime devil. KIRK: I see. KIRK: No? You told us to avoid trouble.

KIRK: Oh, yes. After all, we're big enough to take a few insults. Aren't we? KIRK: What was it they said that started the fight? And that's when you hit the Klingons?

Scotty, you're restricted to quarters until further notice. Thank you, sir. That'll give me a chance to catch up on my technical journals.

There are a lot more than eleven tribbles now. They remind me of the lilies of the field. They toil not, neither do they spin.

But they seem to eat a great deal. I see no practical use for them. They're nice, soft, and furry, and they make a pleasant sound.

MCCOY: It's a human characteristic to love little animals, especially if they're attractive in some way. I am frequently inundated by them, but I've trained myself to put up with practically anything.

If you'll excuse me, sir. Kirk walks to his chair, preoccupied by his last conversation. When he sits, there is a squeak. He has sat on a large tribble.

Then he notices that there are fluffy balls everywhere. They do seem to be all over the ship. McCoy enters, stroking a tribble.

Did you want to see me, Jim? Don't look at me. It's the tribbles who are breeding. If we don't get them off this ship, we're going to be hip deep in them.

KIRK: Explain that. There's also a manual switch, which is put by the door so you can hit the big red button as you're legging it out of there.

Too close to the door, as it turns out, on the wall exactly where the door handle goes when you open the door. They installed a status panel on the wall outside too.

The electrician wiring this up never satisfactorily explained how he managed to cut all power, although he must have almost had a heart attack when a posse of system administrators came flying out of offices demanding to know what had happened.

Numeracy isn't known as a builder's strong point. Common sense likewise. So the datacenter has an outside door, then a ramp up to an inner door.

We believed in having a decent amount of room under the raised floor - enough to crawl under if necessary. So they put in the doorframe, but hadn't allowed for the raised floor.

When we went for the initial inspection we had to crawl through the door, it was that low. Even the final version wasn't really high enough. The old Sun 42U racks are actually quite short - the power supply at the base eats into the dimensions, so the external height is just over 42U and there was really only 36U available for servers.

When we ordered our first Dell 42U rack, we had to take all the servers out, half dismantle it, lay it down, and it took six of us to wangle it through the dogleg and the door avoiding the aforementioned big red emergency cut off button!

After that, we went out and ordered custom 39U racks to be sure they would fit. When you run a network connection to a campus, you use multiple routes - so we had one fibre running to Cambridge, another to London.

Unfortunately, as it turned out, there's about yards from the main building ingress to the main road, and someone cheated and laid the two fibres next to each other.

The was some building work one day, and it had carefully been explained where the hole should and shouldn't be dug. Mid-afternoon, Sun Net Manager remember that?

We go to the window, and there's a large hole, a JCB, and the obligatory gaggle of men in hard hats staring into the hole.

My boss says "They're not supposed to be digging there! That all still works perfectly with the m And it's pretty quick too. It's even quicker on the new "High Frequency" servers, that appear to be a 3.

One of the snags with many of the smaller cloud providers is that they don't necessarily have a huge choice of instance configurations.

I'm not saying I necessarily want the billions of choices that AWS provide, but the instances are fairly one dimensional - CPU, memory, and storage aren't adjustable independently.

One option here is to take a small instance, and add extra storage to it. This isn't - yet - all that commonly available on other providers.

Vultr do have it as an option, but at the moment it's only available in New York NJ. View the console and watch the install.

This is really quick if you deploy in London, and isn't too bad elsewhere in Europe, as the Tribblix server I'm loading from is in London. Transferring stuff across the Atlantic takes a bit longer.

Then run the install. This is just. It will download a number of packages to finish the install these are normally loaded off the ISO if you boot that, but for an iPXE install it pulls them over the network.

Reboot the server and it will boot normally off disk. Go to the Block Storage tab, and Add some block storage.

I'm going to add 50GB just to play with. Now we need to connect it to our server. This isn't quite as obvious as I would have liked.

Click on the little pencil icon and you get to the "Manage Block Storage" page. Select the instance you want to attach it to, and hit Attach.

This will restart the server, so make sure you're not doing anything. As we're using vioblk, this comes up as c3t0d0 the initial boot drive is c2t0d0.

And I can do all the normal things you would expect with a zfs pool. If you go to Block Storage and click the pencil to Manage it, the size is clickable.

I clicked that, and changed the size to 64GB. Like resizing an EBS volume on AWS, there doesn't seem to be a way to persuade illumos to rescan the devices to spot that the size has changed.

You have to reboot. Only reboot doesn't appear to be enough. It says on the Vultr console "You will need to restart your server via the control panel before changes will be visible.

This is effectively power-cycling it, which is presumably necessary to propagate the change through the whole stack properly.

And you can expand the pool using 'online -e' zpool online -e store c3t0d0 This caused me a little bit of trouble. I had to ssh in, clear the pool, and run a scrub, before things looked sane.

Expanding the pool then worked and things look OK. Generally, block device resize appears to be possible, but is still a bit rough round the edges.

I released milestone 22 back in March. That was a fairly long time in the making, as the previous relase was 9 months earlier. Part of the reason for the lengthy delay was that there wasn't all that much reason for a new release - there are a lot of updated packages, but no big items.

I guess the biggest thing is that the default gcc compiler and runtime went from gcc4 to gcc7. In places, the gcc4 name continues. Milestone 23 was the next full release, in July.

Things start to move again here - Tribblix fully transitioned from gcc4 to gcc7, as illumos is now a gcc7 build.

I updated the MATE desktop, which was the start of moving from gtk2 to gtk3. There's a prettier boot banner, which allows a bit of custom branding.

There's a long-running effort to migrate from Python 2. This is slow going - there are actually quite a lot of python modules and tools and things that use python that still show no sign of engaging with the Python 3 shift.

But I'm gradually making sure that everything that can be version 3 is, and removing the python 2 pieces where possible.

This is getting a bit more complicated - as of Python 3. And now they're doing time-based releases there will be a version bump to navigate every year, just to add to the work.

Most of the Tribblix releases have been full upgrades from one version to the next. With the milestone 20 series, I had update releases, which allowed a shared stream of userland packages, while allowing illumos updates to take place.

The same model is true of milestone 23 - update 1 came along in September. With Milestone 23 update 1 we fixed the bhyve CVE. Other than normal updates, I added XView , which suits the retro theme and I've had quite a few people ask for.

Immediately after that it was supposed to be in When Tribblix was created, I didn't have the resources to build everything from scratch straight away, so "borrowed" a few components from OpenIndiana initially a8, then a9 just to make sure I had enough bits to provide a complete OS.

Many of the isolated components were replaced fairly quickly over time, but the X11 stack was the big holdout.

It was finally time to build Xorg and the drivers myself. It wasn't too difficult, but to be honest I have no real way to test most of it.

So that will all be present in One reason for doing this - and my hand was forced a little here - is that I've also updated Xfce from 4.

That's also a gtk2 to gtk3 switch, but Xfce 4. Something else I've put together - and these are all gtk3 based - is a lightweight desktop, using abiword , geany , gnumeric , grisbi , imagination , and netsurf.

You still need a file manager to round out the set, and I really haven't found anything that's lightweight and builds successfully, so at the moment this is really an adjunct to MATE or Xfce.

They ripped out Solaris support early in the year, but I've been able to put that back. The real killer here was Studio support, and we don't want that anyway it's not open source, and the binaries no longer run.

There are other unix-like variants supported by Java, running on the x86 architecture with a gcc toolchain, just like us, so it shouldn't be that much of a mountain to climb.

Support for SPARC is currently slightly on the back burner, partly because the big changes mentioned above aren't really relevant for SPARC, partly due to less time, partly due to the weather - running SPARC boxes in the home office tends to be more of a winter than a summer pursuit, due to the heat.

One of the interesting capabilities of Solaris zones was the ability to run older versions of Solaris than that in the global zone.

Marketing managed to mangle this into Containers, and it was supported for Solaris 8 and Solaris 9. I used this extensively on one project, to lift a whole datacenter of ancient yes, really ancient Sun servers into zones on a couple of Ts.

Worked great. We had to get an E out of the dumpster and build it specially to get a Solaris 2.

Solaris 11 and illumos have dropped the Solaris 8 and 9 legacy containers, but have a Solaris 10 zone brand. On Tribblix, this can be installed with.

Installing an s10 branded zone is just like a regular zone, but you need a Solaris 10 image to install from.

You could tar up a legacy system, or create a new image from the install media. There are certain requirements for the software in the image and on the host.

They have a little bit of text in them for explanation, but these are emulation compatibility feature flags. If you look at the illumos source , you can see them listed too.

This is a basic versioning system - the host running the global zone needs to support all the features of the software in the zone.

Fortunately that feature list hasn't changed, so we're good. For the image, the s10 brand checks the SUNWcakr package and needs it to be patched to a minimum level.

In practice, this means that anything S10U8 or newer will work. During zone installation, there's some sanity checking. I had to manually create that file:.

There's also some processing of the zone image that gets done as part of the zone installation. And if that processing fails, then the zone install will fail too.

If you don't have those, it simply fails, so you need to add a bunch of packages just to make it happy. Specifically: autofs, zfs, and ipf.

The postprocessing also runs sys-unconfig, so you need to make sure that's present, from SUNWadmap. Enough chatter.

If you look at documentation for s10 zones on Solaris 11, you'll see a -c option. It will look something like this:.

JS , but it ought to be exactly the same modulo trivial chagnes to package names. Tuesday, November 17, Adventures in Server Rooms.

They remind me of Regulan blood worms. You ought to be more forgiving. I just remembered. There is one Earthman who doesn't remind me of a Regulan blood worm.

That's Kirk. A Regulan blood worm is soft and shapeless, but Kirk isn't soft. Kirk may be a swaggering, overbearing, tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood, but he's not soft.

Everybody's entitled to an opinion. It's not worth fighting for. We're big enough to take a few insults.

Now, drink your drink. We like the Enterprise. We, we really do. That sagging old rust bucket is designed like a garbage scow.

Half the quadrant knows it. That's why they're learning to speak Klingonese. I didn't mean to say that the Enterprise should be hauling garbage.

I meant to say that it should be hauled away as garbage. There's a fight, of course. Scott's first right cross sends Korax flying over a table.

After that, it's the Klingons versus Starfleet, with the barman beating a retreat and Jones taking the opportunity to help himself to drinks from the dispensing machine.

Finally he decides to leave with his spoils and is about to enjoy his last glass when the Security guards rush in followed by the Barman, who takes the glass just before it reaches Jones' lips.

So he takes another out of his pocket instead. A small disturbance between the Klingon crew and members of the Enterprise crew has broken out aboard Space Station K7.

I am forced to cancel shore leave for both ships. Ten men are lined up. Chekov has a nice bruise on his cheek. KIRK: I want to know who started it.

I'm waiting. Freeman, who started the fight? KIRK: All right. I know you. You started it, didn't you? KIRK: Who did? KIRK: I don't know, sir. I want to know who threw the first punch.

All right. You're all confined to quarters until I find out who started it. You were supposed to prevent trouble, Mister Scott. What caused it, Scotty?

KIRK: Must have been some insult. KIRK: You threw the first punch. Chekov wanted to, but I held him back. KIRK: You held? Why did Chekov want to start a fight?

Is this off the record? KIRK: No, this is not off the record. KIRK: Is that all? They also compared you with a Denebian slime devil.

KIRK: I see. KIRK: No? You told us to avoid trouble. KIRK: Oh, yes. After all, we're big enough to take a few insults. Aren't we? KIRK: What was it they said that started the fight?

And that's when you hit the Klingons? Scotty, you're restricted to quarters until further notice. Thank you, sir.

That'll give me a chance to catch up on my technical journals. There are a lot more than eleven tribbles now. They remind me of the lilies of the field.

They toil not, neither do they spin. But they seem to eat a great deal. I see no practical use for them. They're nice, soft, and furry, and they make a pleasant sound.

MCCOY: It's a human characteristic to love little animals, especially if they're attractive in some way. I am frequently inundated by them, but I've trained myself to put up with practically anything.

If you'll excuse me, sir. Kirk walks to his chair, preoccupied by his last conversation. When he sits, there is a squeak.

He has sat on a large tribble. Then he notices that there are fluffy balls everywhere. They do seem to be all over the ship. McCoy enters, stroking a tribble.

Did you want to see me, Jim? Don't look at me. It's the tribbles who are breeding. If we don't get them off this ship, we're going to be hip deep in them.

Edit Storyline Having received a Priority One distress call from an outlying space station, the Enterprise arrives to find they have been summoned there by a Federation commissioner merely to protect a shipment of seeds meant to sow wheat on Sherman's planet.

Edit Did You Know? Trivia The producers of the Remastered Edition insist to everyone that all shots of the station and ships are brand-new and not reused from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations as had been rumored.

Comparisons reveal no space shots were reused. Goofs During the fight scene in the barroom, Cyrano Jones has the drink machine make two drinks, which he carries as he heads to the exit.

The drinks are both in the same style tumbler, with no stem or base. When he gets to the door, and the bartender takes the drink out of his hands the bartender was a little slow in entering , Cyrano Jones takes the second drink out of his pocket.

Magically, the tumbler has grown a short stem and base. Quotes Capt. Kirk : [ after finding out Scotty started the brawl at the station ] What caused it, Scotty?

Scott : They insulted us, sir. Kirk : Must have been some insult. Scott : Aye, it was. Kirk : [ in disbelief ] You threw the first punch. Scott : Aye.

Chekov wanted to, but I held him back Capt. Kirk : You held Why did Chekov want to start a fight? Scott : Uh, the Klingons, sir Kirk : [ losing his patience ] No, this is not off the record!
