First step in troubleshooting - make certain the program is running.

I was talking to someone at the Minn-StF Halloween Party (was it you, [livejournal.com profile] fmsv?) about epub editors. This is the one I couldn't remember the name of:

Sigil is a multi-platform WYSIWYG ebook editor. It is designed to edit books in ePub format.

I need a To Do List Manager. My major requirement is that it support pop-up reminders for semi-arbitrary times of day (hour & half-hour is sufficient). Next requirement is recurring tasks (Examples: every Monday at 3:30pm; every Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 1pm). I was using the Outlook Task Manager - it was more powerful that what I needed. It needs to run on Windows 7.

I'd also be interested in something that would run under *buntu.

1 - Working on getting printing fixed on the server. After that comes web-mail, then comes mailing list archives

2 - The car just got a new catalytic converter. Do you know what happens when your catalytic converter gets plugged? It's not nice - the symptoms are very similar to being low on transmission fluid, or having a dying transmission.

3 - Gevalia sells very nice coffee, thank you. (For some reason I'm doing coffee for my daily beverage today.)

(insert 45 minute pause)

4 - I just had a phone interview with a head-hunter. Hmm, this could get interesting. The position would probably require a pay-cut, but it would be with a ~400 employee company, largest in its industry and growing. And the position would be much more of a generalist position.

5 - I've got one to two hundred day-lily seeds I'm going to try to plant next year.

6 - I was just reminded that I'm about to get Minn-StF new laser-printer delivered today. Oops! Hmm - need to go do some work on that.

As near as I can tell, e-mail is working, and mailing lists are working for mail. Web access to sign up for lists, or see the list archives, still isn't working.

I still need to get webmail working. I'm dithering - part of me wants to install Squirrelmail, but it requires IMAP, and I don't want to switch over to maildirs - I like my mboxes!

I have a functioning Apache2. Now all I need to do is get my data into it.

exim is running - but I don't think mail is getting in to me yet. (ETA: Duh. It helps to restart the service after updating the config files.) E-mail is working.

sshd is working - I can ssh from my WinXP box to the server

I can't tell if mailman is working - ask me again after I know exim is working. I do know that I'm going to have to reconfigure some stuff, and recreate all my lists. :-( Liad and Liaden Universe News are first on the list.

Oh - I haven't installed a webmail client yet.

On the good new front - 500GB of /home, 120GB of /, and I'm going to moving spool to a dedicated 19GB partition at some point in the future. I hope to just move mail and print spooling.

Two environments - Windows XP, and Debian console. What would you recommend, and why?

I'm going to be upgrading my server from Debian Etch (4.0) to Debian Lenny (5.0) over the next two days.

This involves at least one (but probably only one) system reboot - I got a new kernel as part of this.

If you see any problems, first try e-mailing me directly at sraun@fireopal.org. If that bounces, try fyreopal@gmail.com - I don't check the G-Mail account with any regularity, but I'll try to do so between now and Sunday evening.
