Moshe Bar touches briefly on how to use procmail and Festival to create a voice e-mail announcement system, discusses VMWare vs. Win4Lin, and recommends some summer reading.

"Finally the summer has arrived (well, at least for us in the northern hemisphere)! In this time of the year many start to prepare their summer vacations. It's during my annual six-week summer holiday that I catch up with culture, sports, and required reading. I also use this time for "fun" projects and a bit of exploration.

One of the "fun" things I did last year in my summer holiday was install a mail server that would read to me aloud the sender and subject of incoming e-mails through the speakers inside and outside my summer house. I like to stay outside and tend to the flowers and vegetables while listening to music, but at the same time I don't want to miss urgent e-mails (like the monthly reminders to send in the column by our boss here at Byte.com, Daniel Dern :))."
