  1. FOSS focused laptops, looks like they're OSS compatible from the BIOS all the way up. Secure hardware.
  2. Ubuntu powered laptops with crazy specs, up to 64GB of memory, multiple hard drives + multiple SSDs, massive graphics power, etc.
  3. privbind runs an application as an unprivileged user after binding it to a privileged port. Great for running node on 80 for example...
  4. Very helpful article that explains how to reboot 14.04 into single user mode even if it asks for a password. Trick is to add `init=/bin/bash` to the kernel line in grub. Booya.
  5. This provided the extra info to get NFS working from OSX host to Ubuntu guest.
  6. This got me started sharing filesystems over NFS from an OSX host to an Ubuntu guest.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Script to enable a yubikey to be used with luks full disk encryption. Very interesting...
  10. 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...
  11. Ultra helpful article that allowed me to manually set a resolution of 1280x1024 on a VGA monitor with the command xrandr --newmode "1280x1024_60.00" 109.00 1280 1368 1496 1712 1024 1027 1034 1063 -hsync +vsync &&xrandr --addmode VGA1 1280x1024_60.00` `
  12. Use the mount --bind option instead of a symlink to get Ubuntu One to cross partitions which it otherwise won't do.
  13. Laptops, desktops and servers with Ubuntu pre-installed. Some beautiful machines on the desktop front, pretty standard heavy lifting on the laptop front, but reasonable price points.
  14. One strategy to backup encrypted ecryptfs data as suggested by the author of ecryptfs. Useful and simple. Backup the metadata and the raw files with rsync.
  15. Sounds like it's a solution to the green screen on plugging in a usb monitor and getting a green screen.
  16. Useful forum post that explains the `top -b` option, making top output text suitable for piping / writing to file, like `top -bn1 | mail`...
  17. A critical utility for ecryptfs called ecryptfs-recover-private which automates and simplifies the process of recovering encrypted home directory data from Ubuntu.
  18. A different strategy to find an encrypted filename from an unencrypted filename under ecryptfs (Ubunut's encrypted home directory system).
  19. Interesting article including a script that figures out a mapping from unencrypted filenames into ecryptfs encrypted filenames. Potentially useful.
  20. Dummnet simulates different network bandwidth rates and latencies by introducing delays or chokes, works on *nix flavours.
  21. Script that locks the screen when the lid is closed on ubuntu 11.10 plus. Awesome.
  22. Very useful tip on how to rate limit apt-get or aptitude. Upshot is for apt-get it's `sudo apt-get -o Acquire::http::Dl-limit=25k update`
  23. Official list of Ubuntu mirrors including very useful information on how up to date they are and their available bandwidth.
  24. Walk through on how to get Unity to look like pre-unity, whatever that means. Involves changes to several config files, installing gnome-fallback, might be worth it failing alternatives.
  25. Very simple guide to using ufw to create firewall rules. `ufw allow ssh/tcp && ufw allow http/tcp && ufw allow https/tcp && ufw enable && ufw status` done. :-)
