Thanks to LQ for giving a free blog to all subscribers! With this additional encouragement I can use this space to talk about my Linux-related ideas, experience and comments and hopefully get community feedback.

I worked as a linux admin on and off even though it's not my primary specialization. I have five computers at home, all of which has at least one linux partition. Out of those, my closet server may be of special interest because it lives in a closet and I attached it a dryer...

A new quest...

Posted 03-03-2009 at 02:35 PM by americancaesar

My company currently runs an IceWarp (used to be called Merak) mail server. I am looking to change this. One of the biggest disadvantages of the IceWarp mail server is the lag experienced when users have a few hundred messages in their inbox--or any other folder for that matter. I am looking for a mail server which is integrated with a database so that folder listings will be more responsive.

For starters

Not sure what this is for or how it differs from a Web Site

I am just starting Puppy and find it faster and easier to use than Freespire. But cannot configure my printer. Took an hour to figure out how to install Puppy and get the menu-normal.lst file...

I see that has a blog feature. This might be a good place to chronicle the stuff I learn about Linux.

As a Windows user since 1990, I've gotten lazy. I used to be a Command Line junkie, and resisted Windows 95 as long as humanly possible. Unfortunately, it evetually got to the point where I needed to use Windows just so I could exchange files with other people. I made the switch, and gradually Windows reeled me in with its pretty colors and shiny lights.
