Amstrad launches videophone

By LanceW

Proprietary video conferencing, can't say I like the concept. Plus presumably is over POTS so quality will be poor. But perhaps the price 99 will make it a viable prospect?

Perl Modules

By LanceW

Today whilst working on a online Perl application I decided to move all my nasty code into a nice Perl module. (seeing as this is for a client and all)
This Site turned out to be a handy little page for reminding me what it was all about. (I haven't really spent much time on Perl module work lately)

SMS to BT Landlines!

By LanceW

Due to a technical mistake today, I SMS text messaged my wife on our home phone number not her mobile. Was I ever suprised when it got through.
Try it, text your home phone number and a nice computerised lady will call you up and read out the text message!

As a confirmed anti-MS person, it was a pleasure to find a usefull userfriendly replacement server option in SME Server. is the home of this open source linux distro. (previously closed source through Mitel) It provides a solid easy to install easy to configure easy to manage server solution for home and SME users.
It has some issues in terms of development, namely having gone OS development has stalled, but there is a strong user base and it all seems to be progressing well.
