Boxbackup

    Boxbackup    
     
       
 
Boxbackup is an online backup client/server application. It was designed to allow a low-cost, but effective backup solution. 
 
I've been looking for this kind of tool for quite some time. Boxbackup is very security oriented with a great potential.
 
I've been using it for almost 2 years on more than a dozen servers and so I decided to write this article.

 

   
       
         
 
Linux File System Headache: Hard Link and Soft Link

    Linux File System Headache: Hard Link and Soft Link    
     
       
 

If you come from the MS Windows world, think a link as a "shortcut" you created on the desktop.

If you are not, well, a link gives an easy access to a file or directory from somewhere other than its location, and is a way to help you organize your files.

    Linux File permissions: Beyond "rwx"    
     
       
 

All the Linux users know about the "rwx" file permissions. These defines if the people who is the owner/ in the same group/ any other people can read/write/execute the file. However, have you notice some other things in the permission field? Sometimes a "s", sometimes a "t", or "c", "b", "l"... What does this mean? In this article, we'll check out the meanings of all these characters.

   
       
         
 
Time Management with Firefox

    Time Management with Firefox    
     
       
 

I don't think I need to say anything about why we want to use the keyboard over a mouse: All the geeks love it, and it's just more efficiency. However when we come to web visiting, it is not easy to just use our keyboard. Of cause we can use text based browsers like links, w3m, or lynx, they are totally keyboard driven, but they also missed lots of good stuff on the web: the images, the videos, the cool AJAX thing, etc. Today we'll use the full featured Firefox, and make it to be fully comfortable to use with your keyboard.

Using GDB in the New Emacs 22

    Using GDB in the New Emacs 22    
     
       
 
Using GDB is necessary for every C/C++ developer in the Linux world. Though many gurus like the traditional command line, many people want a more integrated interface. At least they don't want to do list all the time.
