There is not much communication between those teams, as all of them came from different companies. Although all consultants work for the same company, people simply do not know each other. There is additional problem of consultants being home-workers, who spend most of their time at home or on-site. I'm interested in what Slashdot community can suggest to help them integrate more. I know company can allocate some budget to it, although reasonable. Do you have experience of working in similar environment? Or maybe you have some ideas that you’d like to see if you were in such situation? Maybe you know some incentives that can bring people together?" top

I would like to put a webcam over TV, connect it to my HTPC and be able to make a video calls using Skype. This way, webcam could stay in the same place and I could adjust it accordingly, e.g. pan and tilt into appropriate direction. I've found many IP cameras that fulfill the requirements, but although supported in Linux, don't work with Skype. From USB webcams there is Logitech Orbit, although it uses software for pan/tilt. Does anybody have working setup like that? What camera do you use? I need to stress that Skype is the only option, as much as I would like to go for some FOSS solution, it will not happen." top
Security gadget maker Spam Cube is to bring its anti-malware hardware to a worldwide audience, courtesy of a tie-in with distributor eSys. The email-scanning device is currently only available to buyers in the US.
The 11.5 x 11.5cm unit connects between your broadband modem and scans incoming email messages for attempts to flog viagra, male member enhancement products, schemes to steal personal information and so on. It works with POP3 email accounts and can cover up to four networked computers, be they Windows PCs, Macs and/or Linux boxes.
Now, with problems with SpamHaus, this can be very useful. Especially with price tag of only $150, automatic updates and no subsription fee.
