gave my presentation "KDE 3.2: A User's Perspective" to my local Linux User Group last Tuesday night as previously announced. The talk was well received, and left some people (even KDE users) overwhelmed with new information. It just goes to show that I wasn't the only one who knew KDE was a great environment, but hadn't even scratched the surface yet! My presentation 'slides', a collection of over 3MB of screenshots of KDE in action. click here

In the beginning, there was Linus. He said, let there be Linux, and Linux was there. Actually he wrote some code. Then there was Miguel. He said, let there be GNOME. Actually he announced it on IRC. But then GNOME was there. As many years passed, both Linux and GNOME grew in size and complexity at niceness. And so it is that we have on our doorsteps, Linux 2.6, and GNOME 2.6. compelet story

Webmin is fast becoming the most popular system administration tool available for Linux, and Unix systems. Its abundance of available modules and Internet/intranet access allow system administrators to access and manage their systems from anywhere there is a web browser with Internet connectivity. Add the Perl SSLeay module, (Perl extension for using OpenSSL or SSLeay) and access is secure. compelet story

It's been about three years since I woke up one morning and discovered my Web/mail server was rooted. Thinking back, I must have assumed that just running Linux was enough to keep me out of harm's way. These days I am not so cocky. I try to keep current with security patches for the apps I run. I don't run services I don't need or use. And there is a firewall between me and the wild. One thing I haven't made a part of my regular routine -- not yet, at least -- is checking for rootkits on a regular basis. That may be about to change, since I found a nifty little project called rootkit hunter. compelet story

We’ve all heard of web application level firewalls, and they’re certainly not something new, with several good commercial offerings available for quite some time. Most of these products will offer some kind of web based administration and reporting facilities to allow simple and straight forward management. On the open source end of the scale we have a project named ModSecurity. According to the Mod Security website (http://www.modsecurity.org), ModSecurity is an open source intrusion detection and prevention engine for web applications. Operating as an Apache Web server module, the purpose of ModSecurity is to increase web application security, protecting web applications from known and unknown attacks. compelet story

Linux kernel 2.6 introduces improved IO scheduling that can increase speed -- "sometimes by 1,000 percent or more, [more] often by 2x" -- for standard desktop workloads, and by as much as 15 percent on many database workloads, according to Andrew Morton of Open Source Development Labs...compelet story
