Wunderlist repeating tasks

Wunderlist is an awesome todo app. It works across mobile and PC platforms — well, except for on Linux — and they have a really nice HTML5 web app. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some other todo apps. But that’s just fine with me, as I really like the simplicity of […]

How to Install T-Mobile webConnect on A Mac

The other day I was lucky enough to get a demo HSDPA modem from T-Mobile to try out. The modem is a re-branded Huawei E181. Since my main computer is a Mac and the box the modem came in said “System requirements … Windows XP, Vista … Mac OS support available soon,” I headed directly […]

Proxmox Virtual Environment - Part 1

For a few years now I’ve been using a bunch of different virtualization products. I’ve mainly used VMware, although I’ve tested a bunch of other alternatives.

I’ve been running and testing a lot of VoIP systems, all or most of them based on Asterisk. For a long time now I’ve had a pretty beefy dedicated server running for my home office VoIP. It’s a complete overkill and it costs a lot of money in just electricity to run the server. So, […]
