How To Create A Home Server With Ubuntu, Amahi & Your Old Computer

You’d have thought the world was coming to an end when James discovered that Windows Home Server – Microsoft’s $50 set-and-forget network storage solution – was being axed in favour of a far more expensive successor. Thankfully he soon discovered that all hope was not lost thanks to Amahi, a free Linux-based home server. If you’ve been thinking about doing a spot of home improvement recently then why not start with your very own home server?

With the Google Talk desktop application, you can stay in touch with your contacts and continue the conversation after logging out of Gmail. The tool supports text chat, file transfers, voice calls and voicemail.

So What Is a Database, Anyway? [MakeUseOf Explains]

For a programmer or a technology enthusiast, the concept of a database is something that can really be taken for granted. However, for many people the concept of a database itself is a bit foreign. SQL calls, queries, tables, records, keys – all of those terms and more make up the field of database design and database management, and there’s not a whole lot that’s simple about it.

Windows RT – What You Can & Can’t Do

Windows RT edition was discreetly launched about a month and a half ago with the flagship Microsoft Surface RT tablet device. Though visually indistinguishable from Windows 8, there are some key differences as to what you can and can’t do with it. Today I hope to explain those to you in detail.

MakeUseOf Experiments: Going Tablet-Only For a Week & Staying Productive

You took one look at the headline and thought “this guy is crazy”, right? That’s pretty much what I thought at first, but as the week progressed I found myself struggling with apps, multi-tasking and spending too much money in cafes (and I only went once!). What’s worse is that this article was my idea. Anyone else could have taken it, but it fell to me. Perhaps the rest of the team were trying to tell me something; perhaps I should have heard the alarm bells ringing?
