SSH Port Forwarding

Filed under
HowTos

Red Hat Magazine: SSH (Secure SHell) is well known to Linux administrators as the de facto method for connecting to other systems. An administrator typically runs SSH to login to another system, often to run a shell on the remote host and issue commands. SSH, however, has many extra tricks up its sleeve beyond simply securing a connection.

Filed under
Reiser

linuxworld: In an e-mail, Corbet said that despite "years of effort," Reiser4 has still not made it into the Linux kernel and the future of the technology does not look good. "There are still a couple of people putting some volunteer effort into Reiser4, so it could, just maybe, still make it into the mainline [kernel] someday."

Ubuntu 7.10: adding some 'bling' to Linux

Filed under
Ubuntu

tech.co.uk: Ubuntu 7.10 (codenamed 'Gutsy Gibbon') could arguably be called the 'bling' release of the world's most popular Linux distribution.

Debian and the grass roots of Linux

Filed under
Linux

ITPro: Debian is both the most conservative and the most radical of Linux distributions, resolute and true to the ideals of the movement from which it sprang. The Debian project reaches back to a time when Linux was young and easy, when real programmers rode on the metal and coded in the buff, and a couple of floppies was sufficient to carry Linux, GNU and all the tools that were required to get a system up and running on a 386.

my new Asus EeePC

Filed under
Hardware

gnuski.blogspot: After a long weekend of waiting, my Asus EeePC 701 has arrived! I was at work and I had a small crowd around me the moment it came in the door. Everyone there said "wow, its smaller than I thought!" and I had to agree, sorta.

arkOS Sunset

When I started arkOS back in late 2012, I was moved by the idea of creating a new and innovative software stack and operating system that could bring self-hosted server applications to a wide audience. The vision has always been the same: to give the masses the tools and education they need to properly self-host all of their software needs in one place. This project has spawned many different ideas and micro-projects from many different developers including myself, and has helped contribute (I hope!) to a renewed interest in the decentralized "do-it-yourself" internet we have seen with the rise of projects like Indieweb, Sandstorm, Mastodon and more.
