ElasticSearch used to have a nice feature called “rivers”. Using a river it was easy to get your CouchDB data into an ElasticSearch index. Since ElasticSearch 1.5 rivers are deprecated.

Using a Pidgin SIPE account to connect to MS Lync

Is your company using MS Lync as a chat/communication service? You can connect to it with Pidgin using the SIPE plugin. Text-chat and file-transfers work, but I havn’t found a way to get audio and video conversations to work under Fedora 17, unfortunately.

Waarom ook wij mee zouden moeten doen met al die sociale media gekte

Facebook, Twitter, Hyves, Android Apps…. Waarom, niet voor mij zou ik bijna gezegd hebben….

Maar dan. Ik kan me nog herinneren dat mijn ouders zeiden… ICQ is niet meer voor ons, zijn we te oud voor. Ik ben blij dat mijn moeder het toch actief is gaan gebruiken, zo lees ik nog eens iets . . . → Read More: Waarom ook wij mee zouden moeten doen met al die sociale media gekte
