Golden's Rules: Why new chips + Xen = dream machines

'm not usually a guy who slavers over the latest and greatest technology. In fact, I generally prefer to wait until a technology has been around at least a year before I jump on it. I'm changing my ways, and all because of multi-core virtualization. You may not have heard why Xen goes better with this new generation of chips.

I wrote a bash script to help you duplicate your DVDs. This may be illegal depending on where you live, but if you use your DVDs regularly you should have backups, to protect your investment.

Throw in the firewall that comes out of the box with OpenWrt White Russian, and suddenly the perimeter seems a lot more secure.
