  1. This worked for me http://www.unlocks.co.uk/unlock_blackberry_free.php
  2. Is the 'LOGIN FAILED' coming from the application or MySQL? Could it be that the user you are connecting with doesn't have permissions to connect from its current host?
  3. Just to clarify you're wanting to make a server that listens / process SMTP traffic?
  4. Agree, eFax is far from cheap, especially with the kind of bulk you are talking about, there are cheaper alternatives, it 'might' be worth going through the costings of it, 10 x Phone rental, Cost per Fax, then factor in the power consumption. I remember looking for an alternative to eFax and found a UK provider offering unlimited faxing for something like £30 a month? I didn't look into the T&C's, it could be that advertising business like the one described are prohibited from using such services :P Anyway, good luck with your project, its certainly been an interesting read :)
  5. Has your customer explored hosted fax services like eFax?

    Email Bomber

    Since moving my email over to Gmail I found that I receive very little spam at all. I did much prefer Gmail when they where using Postini, but the new Gmail spam filter seems to work just as well.
  7. Can you shed some light on what OS you are running and who manufactured your netbook
  8. I've recently been using regular expressions in vb.net, I am not sure if I am missing something in the original post, but if you are just looking for "www.google.com" and not trying to pull domains then you should be able to use the following;- "\b(www.google.com)" [/CODE] I saved a copy of this cheat sheet for my future reference, it may be helpful for you http://www.addedbyte...oad/regular-expressions-cheat-sheet-v1/png/ Edit: Just to note that you would need to convert your search string to lowercase, otherwise my code won't pick up on any capitalization
  9. Configuring IIS to work with PHP has become a lot easier in recent years Microsoft Web Platform Installer (http://www.microsoft.com/web/downloads/platform.aspx) does pretty much all of the installation / configuration for you. IIS is fairly straight forward in terms of management. I am not an expert in PHP, but have used it with both MSSQL and MYSQL and the change (from memory) is fairly simple (I used example code I found on the web)
  10. I have recently done something similar (I think?) You can use services like Yahoo Pipes to aggregate the feeds (Yahoo Pipes is very powerful) or Feed Rinse Then I used RSS Agent (written by Damjan Krstevski) http://www.daniweb.com/web-development/php/code/287265/php-rss-reader I am not sure if that's really what you are after? A working example of the coding I did is available here http://www.rockingphilosophy.com/ it combines a YouTube and Blogger feed into one and then displays the title of the blog/video along with various share options, clicking on the title opens the original blog/video in a a new window
  11. From what I remember doesn't Facebook email all registered email accounts that have been used on an account when you try changing your password / recover it?
  12. Ah :) SBS 2003... how I loved you. SBS is a quality product... until your organisation outgrows it, then there are some serious migration headaches.
  13. Do you have a PDF/Word version available? This looks very interesting.
  14. As per digip: Try using http://www.serversniff.net/index.php, to investigate what DNS records they have. You may find with large organisations like the BBC etc that they don’t use Webmail and remote access to email is either provided by a mobile device e.g. BlackBerry or they are required to run Outlook via a terminal session / Citrix. I guess it’s viewed as convenience versus security.
  15. My guess, is file permissions on your web server.
  16. You really need to go and learn about what a Windows Domain is. If you want to learn the basics then go and Google it otherwise its time to invest in some Microsoft textbooks. I recommend picking up a copy of Windows Small Business Server (SBS) as its a lot more wizard based and comes more configured out of the box.
  17. I'm running Exchange 2003 at home, might be worth while trying to get hold of a copy of 2003 or 2010. 2003 is straight forward to setup and there are numerous anti spam solutions available to you, it’ll also be useful tool for you to see how Exchange interacts with Active Directory i.e. it’ll do your CV no harm
  18. So you want us to tell you why you should be running a Windows Server 2008 server in the first place? Tell us why you want to run a Server 2008 box and we'll tell you how. Why would you spend $800+ when you don't know what to do with it?
  19. I'm not sure of the exact terminology here, but you cannot have multiple terminal service (remote desktop) connections to an XP Machine, so you are always connecting to the console of that system, where as with Windows Server you can have multiple terminal service sessions running e.g. multiple people logged in to different remote accounts. I can't remember (and I don't have time right now to go and look for the solution) but the system you are connecting from e.g. System A -> System B (Windows XP via RDP) what Language keyboard is System A using? I can't remember if when using RDP if your system will drive the language control
  20. An AD Domain does not require you to run DHCP from the DC (unless I've mis-understood what either of you are saying)
  21. I'm currently running XenCenter at home (and also on 4 sites across the globe), my box at home is something I put together for $500. It's worth looking at and its also free. 10-16GB is a little over kill (IMO) for reference here's what I am running at home DC, Exchange, SQL-Express, MySQL, Web Server. Unless your servers are going to do something super intensive then they won't need much more than 512/1024 each. At random times I've had various Linux VM's running either as a NAS or supporting some form of PXE booting / imaging server (GHOST). But like Infiltrator said, go with 8GB for now and then expand if and when you encounter problems.

    Funky Dns Servers

    ? Buy a router or setup a DNS server that does this (or edit your host files), why'd you want to do any of the these I'd never know...
  24. Well Similar to Infiltrator, for a group based, year long project we had to design and build a Hotel Management system. The project kind of just fell on our lap, seen as one team member actually worked part time for a hotel with a dated (and not fully functioning system). We went with a VB.net app, however a web based app with a customer portal would be cool. Depends how funky you want to get and what language you write it in (touch screen POS for the bar staff), you can expand and scale up the complexity of it (depending on the time and scope of the project) e.g. either you build it semi-rigid/bespoke for 1 specific hotel or you make it ‘off the shelf’ and make it completely configurable e.g. from setup the user must specify how many floors they have, how many rooms they have, what type of rooms, what amenities (so that it meets your requirements of ‘sellable’)
