Mailexpire - Free Email Addresses

by Volker Weber

Mailexpire - Free Email Addresses to Avoid Spam - Because it's YOUR inbox Mailexpire is still the simplest, cleanest way for you to keep your inbox spam-free. Our system allows you to create a free email alias for yourself. For a period you choose, from 12 hours to 3 months, anything sent to this email alias will be passed on to you at your actual email address. You can now give this alias to that salesman you're not sure of. If you get appropriate email from him, that's great. However, if you start receiving spam, you know where it came from, and you only have to put up with it until your alias expires. If you want to extend your mailexpire alias, or kill it instantly, just use our unique control panel. Simple, isn't it? Mailexpire is free, and you can use it as often as you like.

by Volker Weber

Notes.net: NotesNIC Directory Home Page NotesNIC is a Notes directory service on the Internet that provides a way for Notes sites to locate and communicate with each other. This is accomplished by grouping all NotesNIC servers into one Notes Domain called the "NET" Domain. As a result, all NotesNIC servers share a replica copy of the "NET" Public Address Book, which provides the information needed to locate and communicate with Notes Internet sites. Any Notes site can register to become a part of the NotesNIC domain (NET).

Hugh Pyle on distributing applications

by Volker Weber

Hugh Pyle on distributing applications with Groove: With its component architecture supported by OSD - self-describing applications, made from granular, trusted, mobile code - Groove has built some infrastructure which takes the maintenance work out of thick-client applications. The ability to maintain multiple versions, multiple language implementations if you want, multiple native-platform codebases if you need, of a component-based framework means that your thousands or millions of clients can transparently update themselves. Groove's enterprise administration system means that you can even centralise the "code trust" question if that's appropriate. You can see this in action by creating a space, adding a custom tool to the space, and inviting your friends. Without any pain (and according to their corporate trust policies, if appropriate), your friends get the code. Their "thick client" dynamically updates itself to bring the code down. If they need a new version, it'll just arrive.
