Automated distributed backups for laptops

Filed under
HowTos

This document will describe the setup I made for automating the backup tasks for all laptops here in the house. My servers use the same backup server and infrastructure, but right now they don't have the checks and scripts because they are online 24/7 and my backup server is triggering the backup process. This is however not true at all for the laptops.

This is just a short note by way of encouragement for anyone who has considered making their notebook dual-bootable but either been daunted by the prospect or just hasn't got around to it.

Dreamlinux is a Brazilian distro based on Morphix and comes with the XFce4 desktop. Dreamlinux 1.0 Studio edition was released yesterday so we took it for a test drive today. Available in English and Portuguese, it defaults to English and offers one of the prettiest implementations of Xfce I've seen. How else does DreamLinux distinguish itself from Morphix or the others?

A New Breed of Puppy: Grafpup Linux 1.0.2

Filed under
Linux
Reviews
-s

Grafpup is a tiny distro based on Puppy Linux focused moreso on graphic applications. It comes in a 75 mb download, similarly to Puppy, but it has taken out some of the general purpose, games, and multimedia applications and added more graphic apps. We test drove the newest version, Grafpup Linux 1.0.2, announced just today. Aimed at the professional graphic artist, most applications were quite useful even to a layperson like myself. When a distro comes in 75 mb, is chocked full of useful utilities and apps, and still includes gimp - you know they are doing something right.

CLI Magic: MultiTail follows files in style

Filed under
HowTos

Troubleshooting often involves having to watch logfiles in real time. That means using tail or a similar utility to see new messages that are added to a logfile by Apache, MySQL, X.org, or whatever program you're trying to deal with at the time. While tail is usually readily available on *nix systems, I prefer to use MultiTail whenever possible. It has some features that you won't find in tail, such as filtering and a color display, and MultiTail allows you to follow the output from a command as easily as following a logfile.

Reduce the Risk - hire programmers from open source

OSS

In the wake of open source, traditional hiring practices seem like an unnecessarily risky way to hire new employees, especially for small teams where each hire can make it or break it. Why bet the composition of your collective on abstract indicators, hearsay, and a biased bio?
