Ok so there’s Evoultion, KMail/KAddressbook, Thunderbird, and then there’s the tried and true pen & paper. What’s the problem? I want to keep a list of people I know so I can contact them. I want a list that I can use no matter what client I choose. Vcard isn’t it.

So you’re tired of ads huh? Adblocker annoying you? Well check this out: http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/. It’s a /etc/hosts file (if you’re smart you can use it on just about any os) that will redirect ad sites to local host, eliminating the need for an ad blocker! Pretty neat idea huh?
If you use vim, you’ll love these tips that I found in zzapper’s signature on a post to zsh-users!

If you’re doing ruby devlepment on a Debian system, you might want to check out the Ruby Production Archive “RPA will be a controlled repository of Ruby libraries and applications, managed by a dedicated team that will ensure consistency and proper QA.” I used it to install jabber4r, and it worked without any problems whatsoever.
I happen to have an account with a UML host, that runs Debian Sarge. I wanted to hook up a mail system, with STMP, and POP3. I looked around on google and found this tutorial: http://workaround.org/articles/ispmail-sarge/

It has a family tree of many electronic genres, with audio samples of each! Enjoy! (thx to jbit for tellin me about this)
First of all… I must say I am impressed at how far this project has come since I last tried it. Last time, when I tried to resize the window it caused problems, when I moved the window the background got messed up… it was essentially not usable as a full time terminal. I’m using it now, and I haven’t had any issues yet.
Why use it? Well I used to use gnome-terminal, which is nice, and offers tabs and transparency, ttf support, and other niceties, but it can be slow. It also requires gnome libraries to be installed, which is ok but not if you don’t feel like installing gnome. I’m an LFS addict so I am always using a new system, and it’s nice to have a terminal I can compile once I finish X and then can continue building from there.
To sum it up: If you want a terminal with support for mutltiple tabs and loads of other cool features, that only requires X to be installed… definitely check out mrxvt!
