TrixBox Dying?

Our trixbox server is dying.  At least it seems to be.  The CPU randomly spikes when nothing is happening despite no changes in months.  No calls, no nothing, just high cpu alerts very frequently for the last three weeks.  This is TrixBox branded hardware running trixbox pro with a current license.  Coincidentally, Trixbox CE is apparently dead now.  I can't wait to migrate to PBXInAFlash when this thing dies.  I just hate the idea of giving them VPN Access to our network so that we can manage our own voip server through the web interface.

I wonder if ceramic could have e-paper type digital ink blobs embedded in it so that subway tiles could work as low power highly durable display units.  Or maybe just layer e-paper on top of the ceramic and under the glaze.

Liferay 6.2 Milestone 1 Build

Liferay 6.2.0 CE M1 appears to be out.  I doid't know what the M means or how it would fit with CE, RC, and GA alphabet soup that they started to use with Liferay 6 until I read this.  They seem to have a habit of dumping things on sourceforge and not doing a release announcement for a few days if at all.  Good sales tactic for the EE, I guess.

URL Shortcut Files on Windows

Apparently windows cares whether you use .url or .URL.  If you make the file extension lowercase, opening the link will fail with the message "The target "" of this Internet Shortcut is not valid".  Also if you put commas in the file name, you will get the same error.
