I work in banking; but my real love is aviation. I am also an active member of the Google Developer's Group Kuwait and StartupQ8, a community to help startups in Kuwait.


When I am not busy in SO, I am busy plane spotting, planning my next Python workshop, working on my photography skills or trying to schedule time on a Boeing simulator.

If you want to get in touch, ping me @burhan.

comment How can I stop Active Directory from syncing time with the client
"sometimes it just jumps forward a few days, sometimes it goes back a few years etc" this sounds like a serious problem with your clock, you should find a permanent solution to this problem. Having the clock skewed will have other side effects.

comment Apache2 could not bind to (arbitrary) address, and unable to open logs
Two things, - since the port is < 1024, you need priviledge user to bind to it. Are you launching Apache as root? You can check what is listening on the port with netstat -anp | grep 444
