cPanel and PBX / Asterisk

Across the last few days myself and a colleague have been trying to setup cPanel and a PBX on the same server, due to clashing configs and requirements and such, to start with, this seemed difficult.

So, we've restarted and re-installed the server several times. I decide to install cpanel first.

So, we update centos, and grab a coffee. Next we install the base group and such, then install cpanel. Here we have a rather long coffee break depending on your hardware.

Coffee break over.
Time to add tho...

Why do dogs like being patted?

Why do dogs like being patted?

Not all dogs like this, but some do. It made me wonder today about it, I mean, they wouldn't do it in the wild.. how would they be patted with no people?

After a lot of research, and digging through forums, dog websites, yahoo questions, etc. I have come to the conclusion it is for attention. Based on this, the dog is more likely to enjoy being patted from its "Master" than from others.

Online Cloud Storage.

I have been looking at online cloud storage recently, for personal and business use. I have come to a conclusion. It's all expensive.
I have looked at Box, DropBox, Google Drive, Amazon , SkyDrive, etc etc.

Box at only $15 a month for 1TB(1000Gb) It...
