Linksys EG1032 v3 works on Openfiler 2.3

A friend and I have been experimenting with Openfiler 2.3 recently and tried the Linksys EG1032 v3 gigabit network card in an installation.

VNC vs. NoMachine NX: NoMachine Wins Hands-Down

I have long-used VNC and variants (ie: TightVNC) as a way to access my Linux desktops. Comparing VNC to Windows’ Remote Desktop, I have never been happy at all with the way that VNC underperforms.

Feature Request: Automatic Email Attachment Check

Have you ever written an email, told the recipient to refer to the attachment and then clicked “Send” before making the attachment? I do it all the time and it probably makes me look like a giant idiot. Would it not be great if your email client could check any outgoing email for phrases that […]
