I'm not sure this is the best forum for this question - please feel free
to suggest another forum/newsgroup.
Work, school, soccer, vacations, etc. Keeping an active family sync'ed
is becoming a nightmare!
I already have a home lan set up and working. I now want to implement a
workgroup solution for our family:
- Shared calender over the 4 PCs so we can sync schedules/appts
- individual contact list mgmt, with ability to sync w/ iPhone and
Windows mobile devices
- PC clients include WinXP, Vista machines, w/ Macs a possible future
- Currently use Outlook Express email clients on XP while cautiously
exploring Windows Live Mail on Vista (primarily as read-only when on the
Vista machine; I haven't yet migrated my Outlook Express email archives
because I'm not sure how)
What I *really* want is the functionality that I have at work with MS
Outlook, but on my home lan for my family
What's your suggestion/solution?
The best solution for a family network would be to forget computers and
just talk to each other.
This from the guy that can't tell the difference between duel and dual...
Being able to check each others calendars makes scheduling family
resources very easy, compared to having family meetings every time someone
wants to go shopping.
And just how did families communicate before computers came along, and why
is the family unit deteriorating so rapidly now? Computers are fine for
business and internet and other areas, but a family should talk rather than
try to imitate how things are done at work.
