Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!

hansg I actually switched to beta voluntarily now (2219 comments)

I hadn't looked at beta before this fantastic storm in a teacup, so I thought, what the hell I have to try it. It's a bit different, and a bit more modern. I cannot for the life of me understand why you are all so upset.

I actually switched over to beta now, and probably won't think more of it (unless i see more of these childish f**k beta posts...) /Hans

Michael Dell Dismisses Tablet Threat To the PC Market

hansg Re:He's probably right. (352 comments)

Ok, but you start out with saying:

What makes you think he was ever all that smart?

I sure as hell think he is smart, but he probably also had a bit of luck. I think all successful business leaders have a bit of both. They haven't shown innovation in their products, but definitely in their channel selection and logistics.

Science and Religion Can and Do Mix, Mostly

hansg Re:This just makes sense (1345 comments)

Religion is simply your own personal reason that you do X.

No, that would be more like philosophy. I do not have a religion, but I do have reasons for why I do X. And no, atheism is not a religion.

hansg Re:Bait and switch? (257 comments)

Sure, it's better than many alternatives.

But maybe, just maybe they shouldn't call it, i don't know, unlimited?

Given one free trip to the past in a time machine, I would..

hansg And that is your major problem with this? (1270 comments)

Sure, speaking another language like that must be almost as hard to find a solution to as, i don't know, building a time machine?

Newborns' Blood Used To Build Secret DNA Database

hansg Re:pardon my ignorance (263 comments)

and usually medical databases are quite thoroughly tied down in this respect.

I don't know much about this case, but in Sweden we have a national test for all newborns, where they collect blood to check for a few diseases (PKU, the google is your friend). When they have checked it, they store the information "for research purposes".

When our minister of foreign affairs was killed, the Police requested samples from the database and got them.

So, don't count on the database staying "for research purposes"...

Mad Scientist Brings Back Dead With "Deanimation"

hansg Re:Aging is a disease (501 comments)

that will be cured.

And no, overpopulation won't be a problem becasue humans, like all biological creatures will only expand to meet the amount of food that is available.
The rest will starve.

I think you and I have a different definition of "a problem".

hansg writes "Ok, this has been asked before but I really haven't found a working answer.

Our (small) company needs a groupware solution that works. What we need is the following:
  • E-mail.
  • Calendar sharing.
  • Possibility to sync calendar and contacts to modern phones (SyncML preferably, please no Palm phones).
  • Groupware server that runs on Linux.
  • Groupware client that runs on Linux (preferably KDE).
What we use right now is Kolab as the groupware server, Kontact as the client and Kitchensync for phone syncing.
This sort of works, but the syncing is the Achilles' heel. You just can't trust it, and it's very cumbersome (manual conflict handling, has to be done in the office, etc.) I know opensync isn't production ready, and this is the reason for my question:

What options are there for a groupware solution that works, runs on Linux and can sync to phones? We'd prefer a FLOSS solution, and we are willing to pay for it, if it works."
