Recently I discovered the Uniform Server.
This is a package of
- PHP 4
- MySQL 4
- Perl 5
An idea struck me!
I inserted my memory-stick into my computer, installed the Uniform Server, added MoreGroupware and what I have now is a full-featured, web-based calendar, contact list, note holder, etc.
Well, whats special with that, you can have all of that with a simple filofax, you may ask, but for me this is a great leap forward in managing my schedules.
I tried it several times with such an organizer, but every attempt failed because I'm just too lazy, to always think of taking it with me. And if I take it, I'll surely forget to look into it. This is doubly sad because my girlfriend gave me one as a present recently. I tried again with it, but guess what... Yeah, I always forget looking into it altough I often think of it when it isn't near me. Damn me.
But with this organizer-on-a-stick it is totally different. I almost always carry the memstick with me in my pocket and stick it on at work and at home. And I almost never forget that piece of technology. I don't know why it is THAT different with it or why I don't forget to stick it onto the computer (as I would with the organizer), but thats the way it is...
Even better would be such stuff like a PDA or Pocket Computer, perhaps even with some flavour of Linux on it. But they are so damn expensive, I can't afford one.
But perhaps it's just another hype of me, and soon I'll begin to not look into my new 'toy' anymore...
