From now on the Lachmann List will not be a post every time something changed but a fixed page instead. You can reach this page via the link “Lachmann List” at the top of this page.

Many people sent me information on appliances in the past and I hope they will continue to do so. Check Point put a whole bunch of new appliances to the market in the last months – I call them “2019 Appliance Series“. There is much of information to gather. Please help me with that.

I have not worked an this web server for nearly six months due to very serious family business. Now I feel it is the time to start over new. Within the next days I will publish an actual version of the Lachmann List. Please stay tuned.

The first one from my list of docks for MacBook Pro 2016 is available now (Amazon Germany Link). It is the CalDigit TS3 Lite Thunderbolt 3. Pain point for me is that it is missing the functionality of charging the MacBook with 85 W. So I will be waiting. But its release will put higher pressure on the manufacturers of the docks I take into consideration for a release date in the near future.

Last month my old MacBook Pro 15″ 2011 was replaced by a brand new MacBook Pro 2016. Here I will list pros and cons and why I am really waiting for a docking station. In summary, I am very happy with my new working device, but Apple could have avoided some annoyances. Continue reading »

cat /proc/cpuinfo > lachmann.txt
cat /proc/meminfo >> lachmann.txt

and sent the file lachmann.txt with the appliance type as subject to lachmannlist@fink.sh. I will try to update the list by time.

I am on my journey back from the Barcelona Sales Kick-Off of Check Point. We were presented the new appliances and while sitting at the airport I realize that they are already on the website. These are the new appliances: 3100, 5100 and 5900. The 5900 is really exciting with up to 32 GB RAM and dual hot-swap HDD or SSD. This system seem to fit perfectly between 5800 and 15400.

VSX R77.30 is quite a good implementation with some annoying flaws – but really worth using it. The now announced features for VSX in R80.10 and beyond will make it even a by far more mature OS. I am really looking forward to the first implementations. Stay tuned.
