Subject: Use alsamixer to turn off the annoying, loud beep (aka system bell) in Debian Squeeze when you shutdown or restart

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Before I installed the 2.6.39 kernel from Backports on my Debian Squeeze system, I quieted the annoyingly loud system beep (aka system bell; it used to be a real bell back in the day) from startling me and waking others by "blacklisting" the pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf. Since that stopped working in 2.6.39, and the beep returned (it is LOUD), I figured there had to be another way to shut it up.

Now that the basics are out of the way, and you are ready to dive in to a Linux based operating system let's take a look at Ubuntu [o?'bo?nto?]. The people at Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, continuously update and strive for a more user friendly experience, add to that the fact that like most Linux distros... it is free!

Subject: SSH: The VPN No One Remembers

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I'm sure everyone is aware as to what SSH (specifically OpenSSH) is, especially since there's been a lot of discussion about it on LinuxForum.com as of late. But, I don't know if many people actually realize just how powerful SSH can be. If used right, you can turn a regular SSH server into a non-resource intensive, very much free VPN server.

Subject: SOPA, Internet regulation, and the economics of piracy

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Earlier this month, I detailed at some length why claims about the purported economic harms of piracy, offered by supporters of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT-IP Act (PIPA), ought to be treated with much more skepticism than they generally get from journalists and policymakers.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Nmap is one of the best security software in the world. It is free and open source. It is actively developed and new features and improvements are added to it on a daily basis. Originally, Nmap is a network portscanner. The tool has then been extended to perform service and OS identification. With the addition of the Nmap Scripting Engine (NSE) back in 2008, Nmap is today capable of performing vulnerability scanning and even exploitation.

In the mean time, more Internet companies join the strike, such as The Document Foundation with their LibreOffice website (still allowing access to the rest of the site) and the XMBC project's website, saying "Today we are proud to stand together with organizations around the world to protest SOPA and its Senate counterpart PIPA [...] All services will be restored on January 19th, EST time. In the meantime, we urge our users to get involved."

Subject: Outlining with nano

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

nano, the old stand-by, low-resource console editor, is probably most often used for quickly editing computer configuration files. It seems also sometimes to be used by programmers for writing programs or editing code. Some of us non-programmers can think of other uses it might serve, such as writing documents or creating outlines. This article will discuss some of the uses I've tried to make of it and some ideas I have for further deploying it.

The Supreme Court upheld a law Wednesday that extended U.S. copyright protection to books, musical compositions and other works by foreign artists that had been available without paying royalties. The justices said in a 6-2 decision Wednesday that Congress acted within its power to give protection to works that had been in the public domain.

Subject: Windows 8 hardware rules 'derail user-friendly Linux'

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The question of whether Secure Boot technology in UEFI firmware could exclude Linux from PCs running Windows 8 has taken a fresh twist. Red Hat engineer Matthew Garrett, one of the first to flag up the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface issue, has blogged that Microsoft's rules for certified Windows 8 hardware do not make it easier to boot Linux despite what some have claimed. Redmond's requirements mention the existence of a boot option for PCs that can fire up a digitally signed Linux kernel. This custom boot-mode would allow the user to modify the contents of the machine's Secure Boot signature database and the platform key (PK) that verifies kernels during system start-up.

Subject: Securing Your ISPConfig 3 Installation With A Free StartSSL Certificate

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This tutorial shows how you can use a free Class1 SSL Certificate from StartSSL to secure your ISPConfig 3 installation and get rid of self-signed certificate warnings. The guide covers using the SSL certificate for the ISPConfig web interface (both Apache2 and nginx), Postfix (for TLS connections), Courier and Dovecot (for POP3s and IMAPs), and PureFTPd (for TLS/FTPES connections). If you've installed monit and use HTTPS for its web interface, I will show you how to use the StartSSL certificate for it as well. This guide assumes you use Debian or Ubuntu; the principle is the same for other distributions supported by ISPConfig 3, but paths might differ.

The School of Computer Science at the University of Windsor deployed their first network of diskless thin clients in August of 1987. Since then, the CS school has progressed through three operating systems, four thin client devices, and seven Sun server configurations. In the summer of 2011, UWindsor switched from Solaris and Sun Ray clients to Ubuntu and LTSP Thin Clients.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The protest against Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) has come and gone, but the fight is just getting started. Proponents of SOPA, a legislative proposal thought to be dead by those opposing it, have promised to make another pass at making it the law of the land, and PIPA is due for a test vote on January 24. This thing is just getting started.
