Over the past couple months, my refurbed iPod Touch 2G has been blacking out for hours or days at a time. In the middle of playback, it will randomly stop and not budge until I power cycle it. The battery can last 2 hours of mowing, or it could be dead in 20 minutes of sitting idly in my pocket. I finally decided to contact Apple about it and get it replaced.
Behold, another Zimbra-related post!
I recently ran across an article on how to configure Pidgin with Zimbra IM (5.x+) here, but since I run Digsby for IM, the settings and input boxes didn’t quite match up.
After talking to various people and troubleshooting problems of my own, I finally got it to work. Contacts and groups are also synchronized between Zimbra and Digsby, so if you move a screenname on one, it will show up on the other.
- Go to the preferences window where you add a new account
- Click Add IM account and add a new Jabber account
- Jabber ID: your Zimbra email (including the @domain.com)
- Password: duh
- Check auto login
- Expand the Advanced section
- Host: your mail server (mail1.domain.com)
- Port: Change to 5223
- Resource: Leave “Digsby”
- Priority: Leave at 5
- Data Proxy: Leave blank unless you need to change it
- Check “Force SSL”
- Keep “Ignore SSL Warnings” unchecked
- Check “Allow Plaintext Login”
Once you save the account settings, connect to the server, and, barring any firewall issues, you should be all set!
I’ve been looking throughout the Internet today looking for ways to get mailto: links to work with Firefox and Zimbra. Since I didn’t want to touch the registry and most of the people here use Macs anyway, I had to make a Greasemonkey script to do the job. Sure, there are already scripts to do this, but they point to the standard interface. I wanted the advanced interface.
Ever get the strong urge to want to just be nerdy, or geeky for that matter? Me too… Today, this post is about your new calculator! This isn’t just any calculator, it is the chance we’ve been waiting for: information presented in cool graphs n stuff.
Welcome to the internet, Wolfram
Before I say anything else, I would just like to thank the Dan and the other Zomgees for the opportunity to post on their prestigious blog. Now for the important stuff: I have a problem. Since I will be a college student as of August, I need to get a computer. This is where things get difficult because I have to balance portability, usability, cost, and the fun factor (gaming, etc.). I had originally wanted to get a Macbook, but now I am not so sure. I also though about doing a netbook and desktop, but with some of the things I have recently heard about netbooks, that might not be the best idea either. The main thing I want is something that has the functionality of a desktop paired with the portability of a laptop. That is my problem/question. What does the Zomgee community think (keeping in mind that I am not a millionaire)?
Edit: It seems the first time this was published, no emails were sent out, so I took ownership of the post and republished it ~Dan
