  1. Very simple linux OS that can be used in containers (for example with docker) to facilitate simplified / consistent deployments, I think.
  2. Package containing the adb and fastboot binaries and a handful of simple shell scripts to drop them into the appropriate places on mac / linux. Nice.
  3. Funky open source web app around task management that syncs and has a client across Mac, Win, iPhone, Android. Apparently no linux support. Built on top of Titanium from appcelerator.
  4. User friendly introduction to xmonad, a tiling window manager. Seems much more accessible now having read this. :-)
  5. The linux hotel in Essen, Germany. Site almost entirely in German.
  6. Incredible little app that can run from an iPod on Linux / Mac / Windows and lets you manage your iPod. Beautiful. :-) Continuation of Yamipod.
  7. Handy howto edit PDF metadata using pdftk. In summary: `pdftk file.pdf dump_data output file.txt`, `gedit file.txt`, `pdftk file.pdf update_info file.txt output newfile.pdf`
  8. Super handy guide on disabling line wrapping in command line tools. less -S, w3m and more... :-)
  9. A vim cheat sheet. Lists various commands in one page, easily searchable.
  10. KMyMoney is a KDE based, open source financial accounting package. The web site looks very basic / old school.
  11. A detailed how-to, including screenshots, on setting up an encrypted LVM in Ubuntu. This approach creates one single encrypted LVM and then multiple partitions within it (as well as an unencrypted boot partition). Easy to follow, useful reading.
  12. USB_ModeSwitch is a little script to help switch multi-mode USB devices between modes. Mostly it's for 3g wireless modems which load initially as a usb drive with the Windows drivers. Compatible with the Huawe E220 and E169.
  13. Article on how to get the Huawei E169 running on the EEE PC (a Linux distro). Includes very detailed instructions including links to USB_ModeSwitch.
  14. Ultra Moneky is a load balancer similar to the likes of pound and haproxy. It allows multiple web servers to be seen as 1 by the client.
  15. HAProxy is a TCP proxy / load balancer which will work for HTTP and a range of other applications. It advertises a small but expert user base and offers a range of very useful load balancing features. Apparently it competes with pound and ultramonkey.
  16. The Linux Virtual Server as an advanced load balancing solution can be used to build highly scalable and highly available network services, such as scalable web, cache, mail, ftp, media and VoIP services.
  17. A guide on how to get the most of out the linux top utility. Includes a description of the column names, and other tips & tricks.
