Free Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2

Microsoft have reacted to the free version of VMware Server by making Virtual Server 2005 R2 free. That's really good, but one change that is really cool is that Windows XP Professional (including the x64 edition) have been added as host operating systems. (Although note the warning in the release notes: "You should use Microsoft Windows XP Professional as a host operating system only in a non-production environment". This might be due to networking limitations built into XP to distinguish it from the Server version.)

Keima Limited

It's been a hectic, but exciting, few months. The exciting part comes from founding a new company with three colleagues (Richard Edge, Dr Steve Margetts and Dr Rupert Rawnsley). Our company is called Keima (pronounced /KA-ma/) after a figure (which we've carried through to our logo) in the Chinese game of Go. The keima is both strong and flexible and is similar to the knight's move in chess.

We're a telecommunications and software company based in Cardiff, Wales, UK. Between us we've more than 35 years experience in wireless engineering and optimisation. We will offer solutions to help telecommunication providers deploy new and potentially disruptive wireless technologies with the minimum of fuss.

We've got the beginnings of a website at and will soon be adding lots of content. Now that we are up and running, I hope to get back to routine blogging.
