An up-to-date look at free software and its makers

We look at the Wwwoffle proxy server, the Rubrica contact data manager, the eSvn GUI-based SVN front-end, and the MDB Tools converter.

Business associates expect their contacts to be available 24/ 7, and assuming you have a UMTS network, surfing with your laptop or PDA is not an issue. GPRS, however, can make surfing today’s graphics-rich websites a real challenge.
