Random Ramblings

Random Ramblings… OK this is my first Blog post for 2009. The answers to the questions that were not asked are… No I did not get totally drunk, I still have both eyebrows! and yes I did sleep in on New Years morning.

Now seriously…

What I’ve been working on over the last few days, was to set-up my own fax server, as I’ll most likely need to send faxes to government departments soon! and as I don’t have a dedicated fax machine, I do have an old USR phone/fax modem

As I’m a Linux geek! I’m using HylaFAX & AvantFAX.

HylaFAX is the actual fax server that handles the modem and all the behind the scenes stuff & AvantFAX is a web based PHP applet that hooks into HylaFAX to provide the front-end user bit! So now (if I need to) I can send faxes even when not at home! just need an Internet cafe and hey presto! (requires a valid user & password)

So what have you been up to over the last few days ??? 😛
