I have found this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0ODskdEPnQ. It is presentation of virtual desktop, which mimics many aspects of dealing with real documents. Result? Quite interesting, however I’m not sure if it will be convenient to use. I would have to try to tell. I think it would be one of this love or hate things.
Anyway, worth seeing.
I’m facing lack of time and limited net access, so next three weeks I will be seldom updating this blog. But in July it will be again regular…
I do manage several FreeBSD boxes, and often there are more than sysadmins than I. So I was looking for nice tool to monitor what ports are exactly installed and what have changed (application versions). I did not do extensive lookups, but I didn’t find anything suitable. So I wrote simple shell script to do this task. Now, go to details.

Recently I wrote about support from IBM to using DB2 with rails (prepared bundle for Windows containing Ruby, Rails and DB2 in one .msi). But it looks like DB2 is not supported very well in Rails, according to entry on RoR wiki: wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/IBM+DB2.
