My sysadmin toolbox

I administer servers and networking equipment in a small to mid-size heterogeneous (but 99.44% *nix) environment. I've worked on projects ranging from NIS-to-LDAP migration for authentication, to the deployment of a 164-CPU Beowulf cluster, to writing an extension to a large OO-PHP application. I'm a generalist, but my favorite areas are LDAP (and authentication in general), database design and administration, and automation (a broad category that includes writing tools and code to glue services together). Here are my favorite tools.

Oracle's open source buying spree

"Microsoft recently made a change to the licence agreement saying that a new motherboard is equal to a new computer, hence you need to purchase a new Windows licence.

If the motherboard is upgraded or replaced for reasons other than a defect, then a new computer has been created and the license of new operating system software is required." Please note that this does not go for retail copies of Windows, but only for OEM versions.

New initiative aims to improve the quality of patents

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), in looking for ways to improve the quality of the patents it issues, has turned to the biggest patent holder in the country, which also happens to be one of the biggest supporters of open source software (OSS). IBM's 2,941 patents from 2005 make it far and away the top patentee for the thirteenth consecutive year, but Big Blue -- with the help of the USPTO, Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), Novell, Red Hat, and SourceForge -- is now aiming for quality over quantity, and is enlisting the OSS community to do it.
