filetype:foo, inurl:foo, “Parent Directory” /foo/ ?

back to the drawing board…

I’ve looked at phpgroupware, and I suspect that I’ll have to do a fair bit of hackery in order to get what I want. Chances are that I’ll end up writing a custom app instead. Let me quickly read the phpgroupware docs; maybe I can use those…

groupware on linux

http://nexist.sourceforge.net/groupware.html has a good list of available software.

rethinking IntranetServer application

Maybe this is something that can be handled by (gasp) Outlook or some iCal thing?

esr website

Incidentally, Eric S. Raymond’s site is now at http://www.catb.org/~esr/ – noted here because I keep forgetting where it is.

web hosting – kevin koyner

I’ve been using Eryxma.com recently and have been happy with them. The
thing I like the best is the plan that I have — it’s called “Private
Webhosting” — and while it is on a shared server, I get my own,
virtually complete OS. So it’s more like having your own machine. Cost
— various plans, but even the low end at $52/year gets you 100 MB of
space.

conversation with jerome

Finished talking to Jerome around an hour ago. I think we cleared up
one of the misunderstandings we were having and are back to being
friends. I shouldn’t have to worry about inappropriate TLA-ness for
now…

remember.el and rss feeds

brilliant idea: instead of parsing wiki pages to generate the RSS
feed, why don’t I just add a function to allow remember.el to save to
rss feeds? That seems like a much better way to do it, because I can
get more accurate timestamp information. Harder to edit and I’ll need
to remember to absolutize links, but it seems like a pretty decent
workaround.

e-mail intranet server finally set up!

Finally! I hit upon the magic combination of twig and cyrus-admin, and now the mail system works on the IntranetServer.
