VMware is buying Novell  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 17 2010 @ 09:23 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsI'm not the least bit surprised that the Wall Street Journal is reporting that VMware will be buying Novell's Linux business. After all, I suggested that VMware could really use Novell's SUSE Linux for its future, and I also knew that Novell was in hot and heavy merger and acquisition talks earlier this week. My own sources have also now confirmed that VMware is Novell's suitor.

SSH Security and You - /bin/false is *not* security  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 14 2010 @ 01:07 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoWhile at RIT around 2004 or 2005, I discovered that a few important machines at the datacenter allowed all students, faculty, and staff to authenticate against them via ssh. Everyone's shells appear to be set to /bin/false (or some derivative) on said machines, so the only thing you'll see after you authenticate is the login banner and your connection will close. I thought to myself, "Fine, no shell for me. I wonder if port forwarding works?"

How I boosted my Vim  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, September 14 2010 @ 06:25 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

HowtoA few weeks ago, I felt inspired by articles from Jeff Kreeftmeijer and Armin Ronacher. I took some time to configure and fine-tune my Vim environment. A lot of new stuff made it into my .vimrc file and my .vim directory. This blog post is a summary describing what Iíve added and how I use it in my daily work.

KDE 4.5 Desktop Activities Bring New Meaning to Organization  View Printable Version 
Friday, September 10 2010 @ 10:51 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEKDE 4.5 brings to the table plenty of useful, functional, innovative features. One of those very features is the Desktop Activity. Although many scoffed at the idea (even tried to get the feature pulled), those same naysayers are (hopefully) glad their requests were not followed. Why? The KDE Desktop Activities feature is a great new desktop metaphor that takes the Linux desktop to new levels of organization.

Who Says You Canít Play Games On Linux? Caster Is Amazing!!  View Printable Version 
Sunday, September 05 2010 @ 07:51 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

GamesOk, everyone knows you can play games on Linux. But what spring to mind when I think about games on Linux are board games, pacman and, at best, Tux Racer and TORC. But good quality 3D games are something that we never associate with Linux. People come up with lots of excuses why there can be no good games on Linux. No, we are not going to list them here.
