  1. This provided the extra info to get NFS working from OSX host to Ubuntu guest.
  2. This got me started sharing filesystems over NFS from an OSX host to an Ubuntu guest.
  3. 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.
  4. Sounds like it's a solution to the green screen on plugging in a usb monitor and getting a green screen.
  5. A critical utility for ecryptfs called ecryptfs-recover-private which automates and simplifies the process of recovering encrypted home directory data from Ubuntu.
  6. A different strategy to find an encrypted filename from an unencrypted filename under ecryptfs (Ubunut's encrypted home directory system).
  7. Interesting article including a script that figures out a mapping from unencrypted filenames into ecryptfs encrypted filenames. Potentially useful.
  8. Official list of Ubuntu mirrors including very useful information on how up to date they are and their available bandwidth.
  9. User friendly introduction to xmonad, a tiling window manager. Seems much more accessible now having read this. :-)
  10. Tips on running Ubuntu on an SSD. Useful to check back when upgrading to 10.10 or later.
  11. Incredible little app that can run from an iPod on Linux / Mac / Windows and lets you manage your iPod. Beautiful. :-) Continuation of Yamipod.
  12. 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`
  13. A tutorial on setting up encrypted partitions in Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10). Goes into some detail as to what each command does. Useful.
  14. An article on how to create an encrypted volume and then four ways to benchmark encrypted disk performance. Summary, the author estimates a 10% performance cost on a 3.2GHz system, 4Gb memory, no swap.
  15. 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.
  16. Bazaar is a distributed version control system available under the GPL. It supports upload of repos by ftp, rsync, sftp, etc. Repos can be hosted on a standard web server or by a bazaar specific server.
