Yesterday my chromebook was stolen in a home burglary attempt. Pretty sure the thieves don't know linux, or have ever used chrome's OS. I have already filed a policed report.
Assuming they somehow got it reset and went online (It has 3g built in) Would there be anyway I would be able to track the computer?submitted by dczx

I'm in the process of building a new multi-purposed home computer for work, photo editing, and gaming. My old computer is still fine, so i was thinking about repurposing it to a DIY home server, but I need reddit's help. I believe it's more than up-to-the task for what I want (2.4ghz q6600 intel quadcore, 4gb DDR2).
What I want for the old computer:
1.data backup and redundancy for my photography hobby and website. 2.I'm still learning webdesign, but I wanted to implement a download upon purchase feature instead of my current process of fielding emails and paypal payments, finding the photo, and sending the original. This would require the machine to be open to the internet. 3.On that note, as long as this machine will always be on and always be connected to the internet, I could ditch my current webhosting provider and presumably use my old computer to host the website (very light traffic ~300 sessions per day). 4.Hook it up to my projector and create an htpc where I can stream my home media library, music, netflix, hulu, etc...
Can my computer handle all these tasks? I'm especially interested in #2 and #3, I could live without #4, and feel comfortable with some sort of raid configuration with #1.

This is a bit of self promotion, but hopefully other people will find this helpful! fail2web is a project that I have been working on for the past two weeks, and have found it really helpful on my VPS, and production Asterisk servers.
I don't know how many times I have accidentally locked my self out of SSH and SIP, and it is really helpful to quickly open this up in a web brower and quickly remove myself from the ban list. I hope to make it even more full featured in the future.Sean-Der

Reddit: Can I partition an external drive so that part is Linux and part is a backup for a different computer?
I have an external drive set up to automatically back up a windows machine. I'd like to partition it so that part of it can be used to run Linux on different computer. Is this going to work?
details, if needed: it's a WD passport ext. drive and i'm using their backup software.

I'm looking at moving from esxi over to KVM on ubuntu 14.04 server for my home virtualisation box, but am a bit lost when it comes to remote admin tools for KVM.
Ideally I want something that does the same job as the vsphere client does in vmware land - and a windows client or a web interface (preferably both) is pretty much a must-have feature.
Any suggestions? I've tried googling around but the fact that 'kvm' means more than one thing in the computing world is fucking up my searches.submitted by sideways86
