It is the month of May 2022 and I thought of posting some minor updates to about this blog and the website.
VPS from Virtual Machines (Virmach) : Benchmarks in 2022
In this post, you will find results from benchmarks on two Virtual Private Servers from Virmach, located in Amsterdam and New Jersey, respectively.These servers had been ‘idling’ for the past few months. In 2022, I had decided to really cut down on the number of VPS benchmarks and reviews I publish on this blog, but as I have posted elsewhere, these servers were `looking lost and sad`. So, I decided to reinstall the OS (Debian 11 for one, Ubuntu 20.04 on the other) and re-run the benchmarks.

First Impressions: VirtFusion Server Management Panel
In this post, you will find an introduction and overview of VirtFusion server control panel. This post is a hybrid of sorts, that is, will cover the “what” and the “how” together in this post. The “what” will cover how to install the VirtFusion panel, what are the minimum hardware and operating system specifications, and so on. We will refer to the installation and configuration documentation for this. In parallel, I will also include screenshots from the time I had tested this panel. This is intended to aid a subscriber to a VPS, i.e. a typical end user’s perspective.

Office Suite Journey: Staroffice in 2000 to Libreoffice Web, 2022
This morning I read a news update about LibreOffice, the free and open source office suite. They are in the process of releasing web based version. For this, they will use a technology called LOWA. The development is in early stage at this point in time. I learnt that a demonstration was given earlier, during the meet of free and open source software developers meeting (FOSDEM). Reading the article from Makeuseof, and looking at the web based interface brought back a flood of memories.Read More »Office Suite Journey: Staroffice in 2000 to Libreoffice Web, 2022
Using Zoho Workplace for gaathastory- my Six Month Review
Welcome to Day Number twenty Seven of my Blogging Challenge. For today’s SaaSy Sunday, read my brief review of Zoho Workplace. It has been six months since we took the subscription. We have used Zoho Mail for over 6 years for our business. Around July last year we took the subscription for Zoho Workplace, a suite of SaaS (Software as a Service) tools for office communication, document management and customer connect. I was thinking of posting my impressions on using Zoho Workplace sometime next month. Last Sunday, I had written about Zoho Writer, therefore publishing the below review at a later time made sense. But a conversation on an Internet Forum changed that.
