Where we require a lightweight mail client, we tend to use Sylpheed, a fork of the old Claws Mail.
It seems unlikely that you would be able to add an ActiveDirectory Address Book into such a lightweight email client, and indeed the manual states:
### FIXME: write this part.
But in fact it was trivially easy:
After much research I decided to purchase ESET Antivirus for our Windows clients. But rather than install ESET Antivirus on each client in turn, I decided to install ESET Remote Administrator on an Ubuntu VPS. ESET Remote Administrator is a server program for controlling ESET Antivirus (and other ESET programs) on clients, you can use it to deploy the ESET Agent, which in turn can then install and monitor the ESET Antivirus software.
I have a problem with a Samsung M3 Portable USB3 external hard drive only working intermittently. I use a couple of these for off-site backups for work and so I need them working reliably. In fairness a reboot does cure the problem, but I hate that as a solution.
To troubleshoot this problem, the first step was to check the system devices:
# ls -al /dev/disk/by-id
I assumed that, when I migrated from Wordpress to Jekyll, one of the casualties would be the old Wordpress comments. I had decided to use DISQUS for comments on Jekyll, partly because it is the "new thing" and partly because it is incredibly easy to achieve. But I never for a moment considered that migrating the old comments would be a possibility.
I was reading Phones need 'bed mode' to protect sleep on the BBC, that computers should have a blue light filter to help people to sleep properly at night. As I am frequently working on my laptop until late in the evening, I felt that I should investigate further. Currently I do turn down the brightness, but it seems that is not enough.
Following my recent announcement, I thought I would give some of my reasons for the move and some early impressions of using Jekyll.
For the past few weeks I have migrating chrisjrob.com from Wordpress to Jekyll. I have also been merging in my previous blog at bootpolish.net.
This process has proved to be much more work than I expected, but this evening it all came together and I finally pressed the button to transfer the DNS over to the Jekyll site, hosted by GitHub.
Being tall (6'2"), sedentary and over 40, I have succumbed to the inevitable back problems. Listening to Jono's review of the LIFT Standing Desk on Bad Voltage reminded me that I've been meaning to try out working standing up, at least for part of the time. I haven't gone for the LIFT, as I wasn't able to find it on Amazon UK, but I have purchased the Bac Posture Stand, better known on Amazon as Portable Folding Notebook or Laptop Table - Desk - Tray - Stand - (Black).
Following the demise of my Novatech n1410, I have now taken delivery of a shiny (actually "shiny" is one thing it isn't!) new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 3. This is not a review of the X1 Carbon - there are plenty of those available already, but merely my experience of the first few days of ownership.
So why did I choose the X1 Carbon?
