  • Online File Storage and Collaboration Tools

    Two of my favorite tools for online storage and collaboration are DropBox and Box.net.   Because each product offers features that the other lacks, and because they appear to be attacking the challenges of collaboration different perspectives, I make use of both products, albeit to achieve slightly different objectives.  Due to ...

  • Getting Used to Windows Vista

    My Vista initiation continues, and so far, I don't have much to complain about.  I've done this whole ''new version of Windows'' thing enough times in the past 15 or so years that I know that there's really no point in not spending a week or two getting used to the new functionality before complaining about what I think I lost.  ...

  • The wonders of Pando: Making email attachments easy

    If you haven't tried Pando yet, you really need to.  It's currently in open beta, and is a technology for sending large attachments (as large a 1GB) to recipients with the simplicity of email.  It uses a mix of email and peer-to-peer technologies to perform its magic. I've been using it for over a year now, it has been a major ...

  • More CommunityServer fun...

    Well, a second beta is available for CommunityServer version 2.1, and it's looking very good.   I'm running it on my internal server at home, but I haven't upgraded my public site (this one) or my Intranet installation at work as yet.  I'll wait for the full release before I do that.  (Notice how tentative you can get when ...

  • Forrester Research on Blogging Tools

    Forrester Research has recently completed a study on Blogging tools, where they rated products such as WordPress, TypePad and CommunityServer. CommunityServer came away with a decent rating, with the only complaint that the content management and workflow tools are weak.   I'd also include the need for better skinning and customization ...

  • Comparing Software Stacks: OpenSource vs .NET

    Recently, eWeek conducted a comparison of software stacks: OpenSource software running on Linux, vs Microsoft's .NET combination.   They also tested PHP, Apache and MySQL running on Windows, the so-called ''WAMP'' stack.  :) The first link is from eWeek, and the second from ...

  • Playing in the sandbox

    I've been testing out a new utility (new to me, at least) at home called Sandboxie. It's basically a tool that allows you to run various applications in an isolated fashion on your system, where they don't have direct access to the disk or the registry (they think they do, but they are being virtualized).   This allows you to capture ...

  • Adventures in Wireless Media Entertainment

    I just upgraded to v0.9.56.2 of TVersity which manages the content for my wireless media player.  Around Christmas 2005, I finally obtained a wireless media player, the D-Link DSM-320. I guess I should have looked at the TVersity site earlier, because there was a bug which would occasionally freeze my DSM-320 when playing certain video ...
