Save paper, save the environment

Climate change and pollution are major issues that concern all countries across the globe. It’s imperative that more environmentally-conscious practices are incorporated into everyday routines.

The urgency to continuously act on current environmental problems has never been more emphasized. One such example that many people can relate to is saving paper.

Using KVM to securely host servers in a DMZ

We host a number of web services and applications on the servers here in the PaperCut office. We’ve always planned on hosting these on an isolated server inside a demilitarized zone (DMZ) to ensure public applications are isolated from internal servers. This usually requires separate dedicated servers, however with the recent growth in virtualization technology, […]

Novell OES Linux beta program update – a glimmer of hope

OK. It’s been a frustrating month for me (and all the prospective Novell testers). I’ve been in regular correspondence with Dean Giles at Novell with very little progress. The frustrating thing is that we have a copy (under NDA) of the “new iPrint”, fully working and running fine in here. However due to internal politics […]

Apache Derby

The Dev. Team here at PaperCut recently did a presentation about Apache Derby at the Australian Java User’s Group (AJUG) meeting in Melbourne. Apache Derby is the default database option supplied with PaperCut. Even thought we offer a choice of MS SQL Server, Oracle and Postgres within PaperCut, we find that 90% of our 10,000+ […]

6-weeks early!

My first son William arrived yesterday. Unlike our planning here at PaperCut which usually run a few weeks behind schedule, my first child has decided to buck the trend and run ahead of schedule. William weighed in at 1.795kb (just under 4 pounds) – very small but strong and healthy. Both Mother and baby are […]

Another update for the sites participating in the Novell OES Linux beta program. It looks like we’ll have to wait a few more weeks to get proper print quota on iPrint.

Many companies have a Jobs/Employment section on their website. We’re a small company with very low staff turn over and hence rarely advertise positions. We do however have one going right now! Quite a few people subscribe to our blog, so I thought we’d do some shameless self promotion and post the position here:

Who’s using PaperCut? PepsiCo, HP and Dad!
