This tutorial describes two ways how to give users chrooted SSH access. With this setup, you can give your users shell access without having to fear that they can see your whole system.

DPotD: I’ve recently grown paranoid about my data, and I keep using rsync to keep backup of various files a bit everywhere. But it lacks fundamental things you would want from a real backup system. So I went looking for something else, and I found duplicity.
itToolbox blogs: Stop being dragged through constant product upgrades that you are forced to do to stay on a supported version of the product.

ruminations: The first few days I have been busy with installing and trying to install new software. Maybe I am weird and a software glutton, but I like my install base to be fat. The more software to play with, the better. Fooling around with the PBI’s, the commandline based install via pkg_add and testing out KPorts as a graphical frontend for the ports collection resulted in some mixed results.
dot.kde.org: Tagua, a generic boardgame for KDE, is approaching version 1.0, and the developers decided it's time to get the word out on this exceptionally cool application by releasing a first Alpha.
kmandla.wordpress.com: Ordinarily Zenwalk is mentioned in the same breath as distros like Xubuntu or Slax, as a full-featured alternative to something like Ubuntu, that generally has a quicker feel to it. I have suggested it to many people myself and for those same reasons, but this time my own advice turned out to be a disappointment.

Before you set your paragraphs to full justification, you need to consider whether it's an appropriate choice for your layout.

softpedia: A computer mouse is no longer a simple object as nowadays it may come in a variety of shapes and sizes, colors and tones, bigger and smaller and sporting exotic or more common features. Among the shapes that a computer mouse can take these days is the shape of a little happy penguin, looking especially for those Linux lovers out there.
arstechnica: For a system that hasn't even shipped yet, the ASUS Eee PC is certainly generating its share of hype. According to DigiTimes, the Eee could effectively decimate the UMPC market.
FOSSwire: You finally got your Linux environment to crash. Ctrl+Alt+Backspace does nothing, nor do the F-keys. You know you shouldn’t have installed that bad driver, but you did it anyway. So you reach for the power button. Stop.
O'Reilly ONLamp: One of the recent posts that Jonathan made was in response to a flame by Linus.

All about Linux: Recently while visiting a friends house, I ran into a situation where I had to use his computer. His computer is a rather old one which he has seldom maintained properly. He still has Windows 98 loaded on it. That was when I felt the need for a solution where in I could use a standalone version of my favorite applications.
