  1. Ubuntu powered laptops with crazy specs, up to 64GB of memory, multiple hard drives + multiple SSDs, massive graphics power, etc.
  2. privbind runs an application as an unprivileged user after binding it to a privileged port. Great for running node on 80 for example...
  3. Howto on modifying exif and ctime / mtime data for jpegs on OSX using exiftool. Key commands are `exiftool −AllDates+=0:58 *.JPG` and then most importantly `exiftool "-DateTimeOriginal>FileModifyDate" *.JPG`.
  4. Very simple linux OS that can be used in containers (for example with docker) to facilitate simplified / consistent deployments, I think.
  5. 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.
  6. Article explaining how to use yubipam to enable yubikey authentication on a linux machine. However, yubipam only supports single factor auth, username + token, no additional password.
  7. PAM module that allows offline authentication against a yubikey. Requires a key to be retrieved from yubico by sending email plus payment info, etc. Less secure than online validation. Only supports single factor auth, username + token, no password.
  8. Script to enable a yubikey to be used with luks full disk encryption. Very interesting...
  9. Very interesting article on how to enable single use password logon for Ubuntu. Requires a thing called opie and a few config file changes. Seems very useful...
  10. Useful forum post that explains the `top -b` option, making top output text suitable for piping / writing to file, like `top -bn1 | mail`...
  11. Dummnet simulates different network bandwidth rates and latencies by introducing delays or chokes, works on *nix flavours.
  12. Suite of tools to manage mobile phones or gsm modems. Includes an sms daemon among other things, and some gui stuff to manage it. The sms daemon connects to a MySQL / Postgres database natively.
  13. Very useful article about how to send SMS messages through a huawei e220 modem on linux. Could be useful for FoodRadar.
  14. Useful article on setting up a hard drive to get best use out of an SSD. One to watch when upgrading to 11.04 probably.
  15. 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.
  16. Incredibly interesting app development platform that builds apps for all platforms (desktop & mobile, including linux, yay!) quickly with a single API. Open source, free, pay for premium support. Very, very interesting business.
  17. Useful list of keyboard symbols. I used it when creating new shortcuts for
  18. User friendly introduction to xmonad, a tiling window manager. Seems much more accessible now having read this. :-)
  19. Useful post explaining that xine can be started like `xine --geometry 1920x1080+1441+0 -f /path/to/file` to automatically fullscreen on a second monitor. Handy.
  20. The linux hotel in Essen, Germany. Site almost entirely in German.
  21. Post about linking vsftpd to mysql via pam-mysql. Contains detailed copies of config files, useful.
  22. Topic on vsftpd / mysql via pam-mysql, contains some useful info on logging data via pam-mysql.
  23. Article on how to link vsftpd to mysql via pam-mysql. Handy.
  24. A very secure, fast, light, extensible ftp server. user_sub_token is the option to investigate.
  25. Incredible little app that can run from an iPod on Linux / Mac / Windows and lets you manage your iPod. Beautiful. :-) Continuation of Yamipod.
