Most UNIX administrators have processes in place to back up the data and information on their UNIX machines, but what about the configuration files and other elements that provide the configuration data your machines need to operate?

Optimal use of fonts in GNU/Linux

Ask any person who has used a computer atleast once and he will agree that fonts form a very important part of the operating system which is installed in the computer. At one time, GNU/Linux lacked good font support and any webpage viewed in a web browser was at the most lackluster.Things changed somewhat with the release of good set of fonts for GNU/Linux called Bitstream.

A review of the Glom graphical database front-end

Glom is an interesting graphical database front-end I’ve been meaning to try out for some time. Someone asked about graphical database front-ends on the #mysql IRC channel recently, and that prompted me to install Glom and learn how to use it. My overall impressions? It lands squarely in the middle of its target audience’s needs, but still has a quirk here and there. With a bit of polish it will be a fine product, and it’s already a winner over Microsoft Access and Filemaker, two similar programs with which you might be familiar.

Hasta la Vista, part 2: MSFT Titanic

  • VNUNet; By Hans Bezemer (Posted by theBeez on Sep 10, 2006 10:32 AM EDT)
In the last part of this series, I mentioned how Jim Allchin came in, saved the day and everything was hunky dory again. Wrong. The story that "Windows was broken" came out in September, 2005. The same month a blog was published about the up and coming reorganization of Microsoft, stating that is was "just just shuffling the chairs on the deck of the Titanic".

What’s wrong with Free Beer?

  • Free Software Magazine; By Bridget Kulakauskas (Posted by dcparris on Sep 10, 2006 8:37 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Community
Freedom. It’s such a loaded term. It represents so many things: the ability to do stuff unfettered, letting the press say whatever they want, invading foreign nations to pass the time, a glorious ideal. I started thinking about it recently because there’s a furniture chain in Australia called “Freedom” and I always get a kick out of signs in shopping centres with arrows that direct shoppers to the food court, toilets, and freedom... “Free” also means lots of things. Free as in libre... Free as in beer... Interestingly enough, they aren’t as different as you might think! In fact, there is a new kind of beer sweeping Denmark, and it is like free software BUT BEER! How fun!

Sorry, but you must call Microsoft to fix link glitch under IE

Dear Nick: Why does my computer seem to lock up whenever it tries to open a new link? For instance, I tried to open your profile from RNews, but instead I received the "Not responding" message and my computer sat there doing nothing for about a minute before it recovered and stayed at the RNews page from which I started. I cannot open a new link from anywhere I go. Help! Frustrated ...

[If you support Windows users in your daily operations, you'll want to read this one. It's a tech question for which the response is, "the fix might cost you". At least the tech editor recommends a serious alternative solution - Firefox. - dcparris]

This document describes how to install a mail server with Postfix that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I will also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses.
