QuietPC.com – Zalman HD160 Home Theatre PC Enclosures
Well I think I really need to build a proper HTPC from scratch (MythTV). My cobbled together box is not really a success. It’s far too noisy and slow. It’s a dual pIII 533 Xeon, with a single TV card.
This case looks to be the business. It is a similar size and shape to my Yamaha AV amp. Brushed aluminium too!
So MightyPhone is actually quite cool, so after the 5 day trial I went ahead and subscribed. 30 dollars plus UK VAT a year. So far is works perfectly with my Desktop, although not with Notes 7 so far!!! It works better than expected with my Phone, and what is quite cool is that the web interface is actually a decent contacts manager and calendar!
When I synch the phone from it’s cradle it uses the tcpip connection of the desktop. Otherwise it uses my GPRS connection. The GPRS connection is not quite perfect, as it keeps choosing my Vodafone WAP connection instead, which fails. So I have to manually open a connection using Opera, then reuse the connection. However, at £2.25 per MB, I will not be using this option too much!!
I have two tasks now….
- somehow export all my birthdays from Notes (orEvolution at home) into it.
- Try and make Evolution synchronise with the server using the SyncML plugin.
I have no idea if this is possible or not, but if it is, my PIM needs will be satisfied for at least the forseable future… 🙂
