Did you ever try to get Sendmail (8.12.x) on SuSE Linux 8.1 accept autenticated SMTP sessions? It’s very easy – even with the out of the box versions of SASL and Sendmail! But if you try, it would be helpfull to know that you have to create a Sendmail-specific config file for SASL.
/usr/lib/sasl/sendmail.conf has to contain at least one valid method how Sendmail should check if the user and password are valid. In my case I use PAM and therefore it’s sufficient to have one line in it

If you plan to buy a SONY FX77 Digital Still Camera with Bluetooth support don’t expect that it will work with current Bluetooth capable devices and applications. I had to learn that it uses a Bluetooth profile »BIP« (Basic Imaging Profile) which is supported only by a small number of devices (SONY laptops for example) at the moment.
Recently I found »Youpi Key« for Mac OS X. And I like it very much! You can define certain keystrokes, actions and more and assign shortcuts to them. Now I can start all basic apps I need after login, open a browser and display all the websites I like, start background SSH port-forwarding for remote access and so on with just a few shortcuts ;-)
