Startup Progress - Part 1

For some time I have been wanting to start a series on my startups to discuss the hurdles, progress, and ideas that come from them. CarBounce has come a long way from where it started. Getting the basic concept working wasn't all that difficult, but polishing it into a quality …



Send Mail Locally on Ubuntu

I develop php backends for websites on the regular. And far to often I end up sending emails, and need to test their layouts by sending them to my primary email address. But wouldn't it be MUCH more convenient to send them to an email address @localhost and keep my …
