Official Ubuntu (8.04 and 9.10) AMIs.
“[Android is] Linux vs Windows/MacOS, all over again. You gain Freedom by using an open platform, making life worse for yourself in a thousand tiny ways, any one of which can easily be dismissed, so they are. But it’s still worse.” Unfortunately, this perfectly mirrors my experiences with Android, too. I'm trying really hard to like my G1, but all it does is make me realize how much better my iPhone is.
Nice technique for lightweight WSGI apps without needing to touch your Apache conf after the initial setup. I'd like to do something like this for my personal site so that it's easier to deploy quick & dirty apps.
Some really awesome stuff in here.
The BeagleBoard (a $150 3” square ARM board) runs Android. Hot.
For some reason I love reading postmortems of obscure bugs. This one doesn't disappoint.
A conference management package developed by LCA.
Ooh, this looks awesome.
“etckeeper is a collection of tools to let /etc be stored in a git, mercurial, or bzr repository.” Neat.
One guide to getting Maemo running on a standard Ubuntu. Gotta give this a try.
I've done this with svn in the past, but it's a major pain (svn's lack addremove means you've got to do it by hand). This looks like a *much* better way.
Gotta give this a try. Windows' character recognition is the only thing keeping me from installing Linux on my tablet; I'd love to make the jump.

The first in a three-part series about the state-of-the-art and the future of malware. Via Bruce Schneier.
OLPC announces a “Give 1 Get 1” program. That's awesome: I've been hearing rumors of such a program for over a year; good to see it become official.
“If the client manages to login, his history is cleared and subsequent new connections are not blocked. Password guessers, however, would not manage to prove their legitimacy… they're all treated as scum unless they can prove to be Good People.”
Useful trick: `aptitude search '~i'`
Really interesting analysis of a cracked Linux box. We're lucky that these script kiddies always seem to make some stupid mistakes (in this case not cleaning up .bash_history); a good cracker probably wouldn't be detected for months.
Notes on a similar model to my p1510d.
Like top, but for network usage. Highly recommended.
A development toolbox in a single disk image.
Sean's write-up of how he pulled off the wireless networking at PyCon this year. This should be required reading for anyone holding a geek conference; PyCon's network coverage was *far* better than any other conference I've ever been at.
IP load balancer with a great name.
“Varnish is a state-of-the-art, high-performance HTTP accelerator.”
Not just for Linux on Wii; has a crapton of info about hacking your Wii.
Pretty nice Java-based sar grapher. The “load data via SSH” option makes this priceless.
I missed it when it happened, but Oracle now offers .debs for download. Schweet.
Debian guidlines for writing init scripts
The linked up “tablet6.pl” is what finally got my touchscreen working. w00t!
Drivers for the p1510's wifi. The SVN install worked great for me, and this howto did as well (though not all the term geekery was needed, it's pretty fun to walk through)
Install Linux directly from inside Windows. I wonder how well this works..
Ahh… this might be what I'm looking for…
Debian Linux on a Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook p1510.
Skip Dell's horrendous support site and come here first
Ubuntu + Niagara = Crazy Delicious
Another tool to thwart dictionary attacks, this one written in Python.
Titus explains how to get a RadioShark working under Linux.
Doom on a postage-stamp sized screen! Who could say no?
Eventually I want to start using Xen for all our servers at work.
Perfect — this is exactly the backup system I was looking for!
GeeXboX is a full standalone media player. It's a bootable CD based on Linux which allows you to watch movies or listen to music.
Discussing tovid, the video disc authoring suite
tovid is a suite of utilities designed to make VCD, SVCD, and DVD authoring a little less painful. tovid can create MPEG output from arbitrary video formats; other components in the suite can help you identify video files, generate graphical menus for DVD
Seems to work fairly well for me
