Behind the Brain

Toys II

My home server finally arrived :)

It's really nice. Now I have a central place to store everything I need want. I was suprised that I managed to setup a fresh debian installation with some basic things like subversion and samba in just one evening. Now I'm looking for ways to sync things like E-Mails, calendars and things like that between all my devices using this server... well I didn't come very far yet. Started with Mozilla Weave for my browser bookmarks but the minimal version of weave is really annoying me... it took me an hour to figure out that the 404 was generated by weave on purpose *grr* Well I hope I will get this to work today.

When it works I'll try to sync my BlackBerry with everything else. Currently I use Windows Live Mail on my private pc and Outlook on my business laptop and since there is no BES at work that would let me sync my smartphone with something else this is not going to be straight forward since I don't want to store such sensitive information using some public services like google calendar.

Well if there aren't any tools out there I'm afraid I have to write my own... this is going to be some fun...
