A little about myself.
I am an IT technician, participate in many projects, some HTML work, and reading a lot. I also contribute articles to IT magazines about Open Source Software as a core member of Japan Apache Users Group. I've been in computer related fields from 1978. starting in college, nuclear physics major, I had to take a class in FORTRAN and that was it, I was hooked on the machines. I started working first as an application programmar at a system development
company. Then moved on to a system integration company, and specializing in data communication, small & mid size systems. I run a small intranet at home, a router, Windows Servers, Windows Desktops and CentOS Linux . The Linux runs DNS, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, and POP3 making it nice for software testing and development.

FAX server is convenient than I thought.

They say facsimile is old fashioned already. I have a phone with facsimile function in my home. But it's rare to use it, and ink-sheet isn't inexpensive. I ran out of the last ink-sheet for it last month.  I built a fax server instead of buy a new ink-sheet. I didn't buy anything. I only installed a free facsimile software and a facsimile modem which was unused. 

Unexpectedly, that is very convenient. The FAX server send email to me when it received a facsimile, and I can received the email with my cell phone.  That means I can get them anytime anywhere.

Facsimile is originally a paper-based tool, but if you don't use paper, you make it  one of convenient communication tools more.
