Easy peasy full system backup

Post date: August 12, 2008, 12:08 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3214 Comments
Tutorial quote: You know how when someone accidentally deletes their files or their hard drive crashes or some other apocalyptic event occurs, the first thing people ask is “where is your backup”? Of course, we’ve all seen it (*ahem* been there ). It’s a bit unintuitive, because backups have no equivalent in the real world. If you drive your car into a lake, there’s no way to get it back. But making backups is the single best way to prevent losing your stuff. So do it!

Play YouTube Videos Without Flash [From /tmp, Works With Adobe Flash 10.2]

Post date: February 16, 2011, 11:02 Category: Multimedia Views: 3821 Comments
Tutorial quote: A while back we wrote how to play YouTube videos without Flash with just one click. The second method (my favourite) used to work with any browser but the latest Flash 10.2 breaks it because the cached files are deleted from /tmp (but are still there). With the help of Reddit, I got it working again and with a minor tweak it works with any browser (I've only tested it with Firefox and Chromium).

Building a Linux Cluster, Part 3: How To Get Started

Post date: April 25, 2005, 14:04 Category: Network Views: 2620 Comments
Tutorial quote: In the previous two articles in this series, we examined some of the whys and whats of building Linux clusters. This article concludes our series by concentrating on the hows of cluster building. We've seen that a clustered approach to certain computing solutions can save lots of money in hardware and support costs. Now our job is to produce a method of building clusters that's repeatable and predictable—we don't want to give back our hard-won savings in project cost overruns.

Post date: April 19, 2009, 10:04 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3161 Comments
Tutorial quote: This short article explains how you can move/convert a Xen guest that uses disk images to LVM volumes. Virtual machines that use disk images are very slow and heavy on disk IO, therefore it is often better to use LVM. Also, LVM-based guests are easier to back up (using LVM snapshots).

Using a jail as a virtual machine

Post date: April 12, 2005, 18:04 Category: System Views: 3660 Comments
Tutorial quote: This article shows you how I created a jail for the OSW website. It runs in a jail on the same system as this website. I originally did this install back in November 2003 and the notes from that session form the basis of this article. I have need to recreate the jail now as we recently had an HDD failure.

A jail is useful for many purposes. In my case, I wanted to give the OSW project a place to run their websites, mailing lists, etc, but at the same time keep them isolated from the rest of the machine. In short, it gives them a virtual machine, and it gives me peace of mind knowing that I have less to worry about with respect to the rest of the machine.
