Happy Loverpalooza! – New Borderlands 2 SHiFT Codes

For years, Moxxi has delighted and excited Pandora’s denizens with her theatrical style, pithy innuendos, and a seemingly endless supply of exes. But when it comes time to give out anniversary gifts and every single day marks a possible anniversary with someone, what’s a poor girl to do?

Simple — the Loverpalooza! Today, everyone gets to be one of Miss Moxxi’s honorary exes. And Moxxi treats her exes well (apart from the ones she kills, of course) — on Loverpalooza Day, she bestows eligible Pandoran men and women with free stuff!

To receive your gifts from Miss Moxxi, enter the SHiFT codes below into Borderlands 2:

PC / Mac Loverpalooza SHiFT Code: W3KJ3-69JR5-9CXT3-JTJJT-WSCK5
Xbox 360 Loverpalooza SHiFT Code: W3W3B-BHX9K-3TSTX-WXJ3J-XCHKH
PlayStation 3 Loverpalooza SHiFT Code: WJCJJ-HCBFB-CCKC3-H3CJT-6FBHW

These codes will be active through February 17, 2013 — be sure to use them before them!

Windows Server 2012 (and Windows 8) on VMWare ESXi 4.1

Due to the limitations of ESXi 5.1 i don’t want to install one in my Network. So i’m searched for a solution to run Windows Server 2012 (and Windows 8) on ESXi 4.1. After surfing around on the net i finally found a working solution in the VMWare forum.

The following steps are done on own risk:

So,

  • Create a  new VM over the vSphere Client.
  • As “Guest Operating System” i used Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit)
  • If you finished the creation of the VM download the follwing bios file and upload it to your ESXi datastore
  • Move the bios file to the folder of the new VM
  • Now open the .vmx file of the new VM and add the follwing lines
    • bios440.filename = "bios.440.rom"
    • mce.enable = TRUE
    • cpuid.hypervisor.v0 = FALSE
    • vmGenCounter.enable = FALSE

Now start the new VM and install Windows Server 2012 (or Windows 8) :-)
