+ - Best Opensource/Free Document Management System?

It was chosen since it was cross platform and looked the same for both PC and Macs. Now the company has gone purely Mac (including OS X server 10.5). Most things are offloaded on to the mac server that the Domino server would handle (email and calendaring). However there are a number of things that Mac does not do well. There is no way to store/sync documents easily and securely like in Lotus Notes. We already use afp and smb for shares on a server in the office and I have a VPN setup for those users who want access from outside but they complain it's too complicated. They wanted to give up Notes for email and calendaring but seem to want to keep it for secure docs. I really don't want to support the 2 systems and I'm looking to shutdown the 2 supporting Notes servers. Anyone have suggestions for some nice replacement software for Document management and storage. It could also run on Linux/Unix, just not Windows. Now is the time to pitch your new software if you are a developer!"

Uhh.. this has already been done.. pimp my ride (or some copycat show) had put lcd's in the side bumpers of a car so that what was playing on the inside would be displayed outside the car. It was in SoCal or somewhere warm.. as that shit wouldn't last till xmas up here in Canada. For those that don't know, the salt trucks would pelt the shit out of it, more then likely breaking the lcd's while the cold would just make them non-functional.

It's time to tell the truth. I am a 55 year-old man. My name is Andy Kaufman, and I live in New York City.

It's not the new year yet, but it seems like a good time to give thanks.

Long story short, I've had a good year. Great job, short commute, and dating again. I've become focused, but with great flexibility. I'm not sweating the big stuff, or the small stuff. The good stuff is in the middle.

May your holidays be commercial-free,

Journal: Can the blind see? 30

Journal by $$$$$exyGal
Xerithane left me a very interesting comment a few weeks ago. Here's a blurb:

For instance, I suffer from a moderately rare eye condition. I will go blind for 3+ hours if I'm exposed to bright light for more than a few minutes. It's like a goths wet dream. When it first happened I was probably 12 or so, and the whole time I sepnt trying to think what blind people saw suddenly made sense.

My Theory of Evolution - Scenario #1: "Now"

By chance, one trait is introduced into the genome of a specific individual living thing. If the trait is immediately advantageous over those of the same species who do not possess the trait, then the trait will very likely be passed along to future generations. If the trait is immediately undesirable, then the individual will be rejected by its peers and will be unable to pass along the new trait. This is called evolution.

Journal: A serious topic: Why men masturbate. 54

Journal by $$$$$exyGal
Ok, so I came across this article on Yahoo News, and the obvious conclusion hit me right in the eye. Evolutionarily speaking, men who masturbate have an advantage over men who do not masturbate. The article does not suggest my conclusion, but it seems obvious from the facts given. Here are some facts/quotes given in the article:
