With the latest thunderbird, the string to search for in the config editor to set it to check all folders for new email has changed from:
mail.check_all_imap_folders_for_new to mail.server.default.check_all_folders_for_new
As detailed here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/How_do_I_check_for_new_messages_in_other_folders Which caught me out for a while as I was looking for the old one in the config editor.
Sick of having to click on a window, then click on the button you think you already clicked on? Paste this into a terminal:
defaults write org.x.X11 wm_click_through -bool true
It all worked fine, slightly easier that Trixbox perhaps, and no weird forum registration required, and its pretty clean with FreePABX being the main interface.
Also went out and got another trailerload of firewood, but didn't take a photo of that ;-)
Did you know you can see what advertisement categories Google will offer you?
You can even customise them to show things that you want to see!
If you are using a Windows SBS 2003 or 2008 with a domain, and client computers are taking a while to login, make sure that you've got the DNS server set to the SBS box as the default.
We use a linux box as the dhcp server and gateway, and this small change to the dhcpd.conf reduced login times from 2 or more minutes down to seconds.
Wish i'd discovered that earlier!
