Oracle and SUN Yesterday (today if you're in the US), Sun released the latest version of its virtualisation solution, VirtualBox 3.1. Among speed improvements and other smaller features, the biggest news is that Virtualox 3.1 introduces something called teleportation: you can move running VMs between machines - servers or clients, different architectures, different host operating systems, it doesn't matter to VirtualBox. Coincidentally, this reminded me of an idea I once had about moving running applications between machines.

That's what IMAP is for! ISP's simply use POP3 because they don't want to store everybody's email - which is fair I guess. But IMAP so a SO MUCH BETTER protocol for email. Mail is stored remotely including folders and filters. The IMAP server notifies you about new mail, you don't have to keep polling it ever 10 minutes, etc...

I move back and forth between my mobile phone, home desktop and work desktop. I personal emails are all store remotely via IMAP and is always accessible from any device, even my web mail frontend reads from the IMAP server.
