It’s been a very long time since I pretty much use Gmail to handle all my personal and business emails. I even use Google Domains to host my domains and handle email forwarding. Recently, I have asked by client to setup domain email for their business, which is currently hosted on my GoDaddy VPS server. Normally, I have two ways to setup email for client.
Well. As much as I know about Internet and make good living online, I often miss something value important. Just about to head out for a hangout meeting, I found someone followed me on my Tumblr LIVE TO TELL blog. I went to check out his/her blog and find something interesting. You can now sell ads or affiliate program on my blog post image. This opens a new world to people like me, who love to share photos. This could be a new income stream for high traffic website.
I have been thinking about writing this tutorial for my readers for sometimes. I find no one offering the best solutions to take Google calendar with you while you are offline. I have seem people reading about how to sync Thunderbird between computers. That is one of of the most popular post on this blog. I am so glad that many people have enjoyed the benefits from that post.
Now I found no one posting the tips and tricks about how to sync Google Calendar with Thunderbird and Lighting, so you can take Google Calendar with you while traveling. Most of the information you found on the Internet are all about how to sync with Google calendar with HTTP sync while you are on the Internet. The problem is that when you unplug your computer from the Internet or shutdown your wireless access, you lost the calendar. You can’t modify or add event at all.
This is where Thunderbird and Lighting come to rescue.
What the heck is this blog post all about? I am warning you that this is going to be a very technical driven blog post.
I felt so funny that this blog got more traffic from search engine to IT related blog posts than to my Internet Entrepreneur Diary or Weekend Confession blog posts. This blog was started with many IT relate topic to records the problems I ran into and the solutions I found. It’s a good time to give it a little update.
Let’s cut to the chase. I am working a new projects that is running on PHP5, Apache 2 and MySQL. I need to get this project done fast and good. So I finally found one of the best choice from so many PHP frameworks. CodeIgniter seems to be the best one fit my needs. It’s very simple and fast. Although it does not support PHP5 OO programming, but it does run on PHP5.
I just ran into problem on my shared hosting server, which is running PHP5 as CGI mode on Apache 2.2 according to PHPINFO(). It throws an error when I access page. “No Input File Specified!” Now the problem is solved!
Thank you for visiting this blog post I did way back in 2007. This content is no longer suitable, since there are lots changes in Thunderbird. In reality, using Thunderbird on multiple computers is no longer a good solution. It’s the era of cloud computing. I’ve since switch my day to day email operation to Google’s Gmail. I also forward all my custom domain email to Gmail and use Amazon SES to send email for virtually FREE.

While I am preparing my backpack travel to China for 2007, I decided to carry one of my older and lighter compaq laptop with me. So I can backup and load pictures to my online photogallery whenever I can. I also want to check email with my favorite email program “Mozilla Thunderbird.” I have seen people share thunderbird profiles between a dual boot computer system between Linux and windows XP. That gave me the idea that I can easily transfer all my thunderbird profile and emails between computers.
This is how-to!
