CollectionSpace Catalog Server Automated Server stop and start script for systemd
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 21, 2021
This is not elegant but it works for our development CollectionSpace Catalog server. A more refined version will be setup for the production environment later as we learn more about Cspace. This is specific to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
Completely Giving Up on KDE4's Kmail2
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 03, 2015 last modified Oct 25, 2015 11:59 PM — filed under:
I have gladly used Kmail for more than a dozen years. When KDE4 started pushing Kmail2, I lived with the growing pains of transition. But enough already. It has been years and years, and Kmail2 just gets more and more broken with each release!

This article by Caitlin Martin on the Oreilly website is a little old, September 2010, but not too ancient. But I was just chatting with Dell they officially abandoned sales of Linux systems, ALL of them, in the middle of 2010. What a strange contrast in information.

A worthy read for Linux critics and supporters...

The people at should be embarrassed, if not downright ashamed, with their product and founder. Do not use the Discourse forum product or services. I can now recommend people instead consider using NodeBB, NOT Discourse.

Against my decades of experience and better judgement, and giving into laziness, I went ahead and installed ISPConfig about a year ago. Big mistake!
