Updated 12-09-2012 at 07:44 AM by dr_agon

applies to: linux, KMail, Opera, Balsa, Claws

Recently I got sick of new KMail. I tried to be patient and after upgrading to new KDE4 (together with Kubuntu 12.04, which is "Long Term Support", so it was ment to be "stable") I ran trough all pains with migrating my e-mails and configuring it together with Akonadi, Nepomuk, and Virtuoso. I hoped to get the whole KDE-PIM usable again. Now, after half a year, I gave up and searched for replacement.

Email disaster with Opera

Posted 12-08-2012 at 08:11 PM by flshope

I do my email using Opera. Opera is fast as a browser and it's convenient to open web links from emails in the same application.

A few days ago, I had an email disaster. I had just switched from internet work to email only to find, much to my horror, that all my current and previously stored emails had disappeared.

Logstalgia

Here's a weird one that recently hit the Gentoo repositories:

Logstalgia

Basically, it replays the access log for your Web server - video game style! Using opengl, it transforms your Web log into a colorful version of Pong: each time you get a hit, the paddle for that virtual host (if in vhost paddle mode) intercepts the ball, also displaying the return code and the page accessed.

LEDA and XERCES

mc2 and new-make demos and/or sandbox installations for whatever purpose you like.

LEDA 6.3 with (mostly) working 'test'files and
Xerces 3.11 sandbox installers.

Here's a couple of examples that install into a sandbox HOME/usr32 which requires ~/usr32/bin in your PATH and ~/usr32/lib in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to use.
