Lets say Google does implement an inactive account system. Create a process that detects that account deletion and then sends out an email to your family members with a copy of your keepass file, that way they will have access to all of your accounts after you pass away.
What I should have said. How does Dell, Apple, Amazon do this? They already have a nationwide database of sales tax rates based on location. There are services already setup to do this.
If they have an up to date database of all the sales tax codes its not a big deal. Merchants already do this with shipping. It should be even easier since they already have a sales tax field, they just need to compare a database of zip codes to the database.
Check with your local state universities, many of them offer programs for people who have been out of school for a while. It allows people to get the proper training and job placement. Also, why not seek a management position in your field of expertise?
You can, go check the distributors. http://raspberrypi.rsdelivers.com/default.aspx?cl=1 (delivers in about a week)
Pro Tip 2: Slipstream your SP1 into your install disk.
-The new Zimbra 8 integrates with cisco phones and now syncs accounts with active directory. -Forums are outstanding. I usually find my answer there. I have had to only contact support a couple times a year. -They have an opensource "free" version. Doesn't include mobile sync, backup services or Outlook sync support. But a lot of that can be done with 3rd part sync applications which have been extensively tested and used by the community.
IM's are already logged... txts are logged. Just your way of accessing these logs changes.
Your company could implement a centralized application to store and manage these documents, basecamp, sharepoint, etc. If you just send them via email, the customer/vendor doesn't have a easy central location to search and retrieve information. What if someone leaves one of the companies? Then you have to resend the emails, or their IT dept needs to consolidate email accounts and access. This way, the new employee gets a login and automatically gets all the invoices and documents. Notifications can be automatically sent via, IM, text, snail mail, or even automated phone calls. It won't be easy to get rid of email, but its definitely possible.
Wait until FF automatically disables your plugins because the next "Major" version isn't supported. I am not sure if this is fixed yet, but it has cause me to set all my browsers in our company not to automatically upgrade due to a needed plugin.
But you still have to get one on the other planet. Unless you create a ship that seeds the universe with stargates.
I would also recommend Zimbra Desktop, uses a lot of the same tech as the full server. Its designed as a mail client, but it does have the awesomely fast search that Zimbra offers.
Actually they do post the price on a menu, either when you walk in or they give you one when you sit down.
