I've been informed of a up and coming event which maybe of interest and I
was wondering if people would be interested?
The meeting is:
If we get enough interest we can go from there.
Hi Friends :)
I'm looking for an open source alternative to Zimbra. Up until now
I've been using Google Mail/Contacts/Calendar for my personal stuff,
but I'm going to be running my own business soon and I'm becoming less
and less fond of the idea that my data is not stored locally.
The basic features that I'm looking for are:
* Email (multiple mailboxes, aliases, groups etc)
* Accessible by browser
* Mobile Sync (Nokia N97)
* Easy data portability
* Open Source
For this reason, I was wondering if anybody on the list had any
experience with Zimbra? I would also be grateful for any suggestions
besides Zimbra that might suit my needs.
Hope everybody has had a good day :)
The next meeting is going to be a tech based one and we currently have the
following items as possible topics:
Cloud Computing (or Virtualization and Cloud Computing in One)
This list is available as a online spread sheet (please see below link),
so if you fancy having a go and one, put your name down, or let me know.
If you would like to combine forces and work with someone else, again
either put your names down in the spread sheet or let me know.
I mentioned this company to redbaron yesterday evening but I think there
will be interest elsewhere too so here's a link:
They claim not to be operating around this area yet but if they expand their
operation it seems like a good deal to get!
I'm trying to free a bit of space up so need to get rid of a few pieces of
computer stuff that is clogging up the draws in my desk so if anyone wants
any of it let me know!
First of all I have a three bay sata drive caddy the type that mounts in the
front of your computer. It is apparently hot-swappable but I've never used
Next are some bits and pieces from a laptop that I broke down after the
power port broke on it:
1 x 120gb 2.5" sata hard-drive
2 x 512mb ddr2 5300 ram sticks
1 x Intel Pentium processor T2060 (link here for
1 x Broadcom mini-pci wireless card (linky
- It does work under linux I've successfully used it with Debian before now
1 x Pioneer dvr0k17rs - multi function dvd/cd writer
whoever wants these let me know!
I'm trying to reduce the amount of 'stuff' in my 'office' and have
reluctantly decided to get rid of some kit that is no longer used -
1. An IBM RS-6000 43P desktop system running AIX version 4.3
- Power PC 604e 233Mz
- 7043-44 -Z429
- 2 * 8Gb disks
- lots of memory - 700Mb (huge for its time)
- Floppy disk,CD etc
- streaming tape unit - 7206-005
* I've seen reports of Debian running on it
2. AIX books
'AIX Survival Guide'
'AIX for breakfast'
some AIX 4.3 documentation
Some service manuals
3. Sony 17" monitor HMD-A200 Trinitron
- working fine but quite big
4. Panasonic KXP-1124 Dot matrix printer
(Parallel printer for RS-6000)
- very old
- works fine
- spare ribbons (state ?)
5. Misc Continuous stationary
- mainly 8 inche wide
Free to a good home (or any home!!)
All this can be seen in Stafford.
Anyone interested ?
I know it's a bit early, but I just wanted to let you know that the next
meeting will be on the Monday 13th September at Navaho.
I will send out the subject of the meeting in a little while.
For those that haven't visited the IRC channel we have one of our group
who has decided to have a little run in aid of Cancer Research UK.
If you wish to donate, then you can do so here:
Also, I'm sure there was mention of free beer if you do.... ;)
Hi, i am new to the group, so apologies for hijacking a previous thread
I am running ubuntu 10.4 LTS , hosting my schools website, moodle server,
mahara and drupal.
My local authority is having issues providing me with shibboleth
authentication so i have decided to go it alone.
My machine authenticate against all users on my microsoft network, as i am
testing squirrelmail at the moment, and my students host websites on this
linux server too. Using the LDAP username and password.
I am therefore trying to configure Shibboleth IDP on this machine, i seem to
have followed the instructions below (i can only find them for tomcat 5.5 -
whilst i have tomcat 6 natively installed)
I am unable to deploy my IDP WAR file correctly or i think that is the issue
it keeps telling me the context path is incorrect.
"FAIL - Application at context path /idp could not be started".
I know its quite a specific error.
Any help would be appreciated
