Connecting to a Wireless LAN with Linux, Part 1

Post date: April 13, 2005, 19:04 Category: Hardware Views: 3613 Comments
Tutorial quote: Wireless hardware for Linux is a moving target. The wireless network adapter that worked fine with Linux yesterday may be released with an unsupported radio chipset today, and with no indication of the change. So buyer beware--always confirm the chipset before you buy. The good news is a lot of wireless adapters have native Linux support, and for those that don't, the NdisWrapper utility lets you use the Windows drivers on your Linux box.

Backup Your Website Automatically With Wget and Cron

Post date: December 23, 2007, 18:12 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3225 Comments
Tutorial quote: Lets face it, no one likes performing manual backups. Often if monotonous tasks are not automated in some way (which they should be, that is why computers were invented) they will be forgotten and not performed regularly.

Post date: August 3, 2008, 13:08 Category: Desktop Views: 5968 Comments
Tutorial quote: gDesklets is another great tool like Google Gadgets for bringing mini programs called desklets such as weather forecasts, news tickers, system information displays, or music player controls, onto your desktop, where they are sitting there in a symbiotic relationship of eye candy and usefulness. The possibilities are really endless and they are always there to serve you whenever you need them, just one key-press away. The system is not restricted to one desktop environment, but currently works on most of the modern Unix desktops (including GNOME, KDE, Xfce).

Using mixmaster to send anonymous email

Post date: January 26, 2007, 07:01 Category: Network Views: 31273 Comments
Tutorial quote: This is a document that explains how to install mixmaster and how to use it to send email, in an anonymous and secure fashion.

Mixmaster is described by the debian package system as:

Mixmaster is the reference implementation of the type II remailer protocol which is also called Mixmaster.

An anonymous remailer is a computer service that privatizes your email. A remailer allows you to send electronic mail to a Usenet news group or to a person without the recipient knowing your name or your email address. Anonymous remailers provide protection against traffic analysis.

My First Linux Server, Part 2

Post date: April 14, 2005, 22:04 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3732 Comments
Tutorial quote: A file server is a specialized PC that holds large numbers of files that many people on a network can access. It "serves up" files to everyone instead of each person having files on his or her own PC. The good news is that you don't have to be a network guru to set up a basic file server. If you followed the Easy Linux Install steps in Part 1, you are ready to set up a Linux PC as a file server.

While there are many ways to set up a network and a server, this article concentrates on the simplest approaches with the highest chance of quick success.

Manipulating the windows upon your desktop

Post date: January 19, 2006, 13:01 Category: Desktop Views: 2670 Comments
Tutorial quote: If you're like me you'll most likely use a wide variety of desktop applications, and spend a lot of time setting up your desktop first thing in the afternoon when you login. Minimising some applications, setting others up to be visible upon all virtual desktops, etc. Even if you have a basic window manager you can automate this activity using Devil's Pie.

Devil's Pie is a simple utility, inspired by the Sawfish's matched windows option, which allows you to conduct actions upon desktop windows. Using it is a simple matter of creating a configuration file and starting the program when you login.

Build your own Gentoo rescue LiveCD and USBStick

Post date: June 20, 2005, 04:06 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 4941 Comments
Tutorial quote: I've written this how-to after trying to find a boot medium for my home gateway machine which could be used for system rescues and even installing Gentoo. Why not use the standard Gentoo Live CD you ask? Well my gateway machine is one of those small, silent and cool running mini-itx machines (http://www.mini-itx.com) and has no CDROM or floppy drive. I needed some way of getting Gentoo on there and some way of easily rescuing it when the need arises. The good news is that these VIA mini-tix machines are USB bootable and I much preferred the idea of having a little USB drive/stick that I could push into any USB bootable machine and boot into Linux rather than having to set up a PXE networked boot environment (which is also supported).

Avoiding greedy webclients with mod_bwshare

Post date: November 8, 2006, 04:11 Category: Network Views: 2944 Comments
Tutorial quote: If you're running a popular website you'll most likely notice that some clients are less well-behaved than others. Greedy clients can do anything from make numerous requests, to attempting to spider your entire site. One simple way of preventing these clients from slowing down your server is with the mod_bwshare module for Apache2.

Unfortunately mod_bwshare is not yet packaged for Debian GNU/Linux however installing it from the source code is very straightforward.
