Make tasks alphabetical on the server console when issuing “Show tasks”

Here’s a link to my latest idea.

Make tasks alphabetical on the server console when issuing “Show tasks”

note: I can’t publish the script to add the idea to my blog because I’m running mod_security apache module on my webserver.

Any tips on how to post script / code into blog posts with mod_security without compromising security or manually disabling mod_security just so I can post are greatly welcomed. or Lotus Symphony for Mac?

I purchased a new Imac a couple of days ago since my powerbook G4 is on it’s last leg. That has been such a great machine for 3 years and 4 months. It stopped recognizing the 2nd GB of memory, the temperature sensor below the trackpad has gone bad and the result is that is puts itself to sleep constantly, and trying to run 10.5 on it is just doggish at best.

With the new Imac home, I started downloading all the software I like to use, and started looking for Intel or Universal versions of the power PC only software that I had purchased for the powerbook.

This lead me to the online debate of which is better Neo Office,, or Lotus Symphony. I didn’t realize there was such a debate on which “fork” of the Microsoft Office alternative to use.

I’m not a heavy user of Word, Excel, or Powerpoint, but I’d like to have the functionality to do some business document processing as needed.

I’ve downloaded and the beta of Lotus Symphony and pretty much ruled out Neo Office.

I just wanted to probe the community and ask for your opinions on the two pieces of software.

Other than that, I couldn’t figure out what else to do. Read the rest of this entry »
