Tryst with Linux: Yes, I read the list here. And as most lists are, it included somethings it shouldn’t have, and missed somethings it shouldn’t have. So, anyway, here’s my list (and perhaps my exaggerated confessional!) based/built on the earlier list.
Debian Administration: mutt is a well known and much loved mail client well suited to the efficient handling of a large volume of email. One of the things which makes it so powerful is its extreme flexibility and customisation options. The next-generation mutt package builds upon the core mutt with some additional features; most noticeably the introduction of a sidebar, which this article introduces.
This article describes how you can back up MySQL databases without interrupting the MySQL service. Normally, when you want to create a MySQL backup, you either have to stop MySQL or issue a read lock on your MySQL tables in order to get a correct backup; if you do not do it this way, you can end up with an inconsistent backup. To get consistent backups without interrupting MySQL, I use a little trick: I replicate my MySQL database to a second MySQL server, and on the second MySQL server I use a cron job that creates regular backups of the replicated database.
Linux.com: Need to add professional-looking graphs to your Web site? Using Plotr, you can do this in no time and with minimum fuss.
tectonic: Do you suffer from too many pages open on your browser? Do you compulsively have to open links, just out of curiosity of what might be on the other side? If so, Cooliris Preview may just be the solution for you.
Groklaw: I'm being buried alive in email about the Fortune article about Microsoft's patent saber rattling, which I thought so unimportant I put it in News Picks earlier. Here's why I'm not unduly worried so far.
mywesttexas: There is a revolution going on. Since the dawn of the Computer Age, software developers have met in small groups to discuss the unthinkable, Free Software. In these times, even a kindergartner knows that there's no such thing as a free lunch... or is there?
Penguin Pete: One difference between corporate sponsorship and a... uh... crew of private individuals is that corporations have the forethought to establish that they have the legal blessings of the brand they intend to market before marketing it.
Blog of Helios: One hundred and seven emails were actionable questions or comments concerning the Tux500 project. Those questions or comments were broken down into catagory and because they address important matters in the community, I have decided that some of them need answered sooner than I can physically get to them individually. Herein, I will address them by catagory.
About.com: The Linux / Unix operating systems come with many commands that the user can enter into the computer from the keyboard and use to interact with the computer. There are two kinds of commands that come with a Linux / Unix operating system: Shell Commands and Linux/Unix Commands. Here is a comparison of the two:
All about Linux: Each time I install Debian - and I have done it scores of times on multiple machines, I get frustrated in choosing the right Debian mirror for updating the package database on my machine using 'apt-get update', or installing a new package for that matter.
Simplehelp: This tutorial will take you every single step of the way through installing Ubuntu Studio using VirtualBox for Windows. In other words, even your parents should be able to follow along.

KTuberling, the much-loved "potato man" game, is saved for inclusion in kdegames for KDE 4, with the start of porting to SVG and other general improvements. Rewrite of KPoker replaces the previous implementation. Xinerama improvements in the KWin window manager.

FOSSwire: If you’re a command line expert, you undoubtedly know about the diff and patch tools, which let you see the difference between two files and then create or apply patch files from those differences respectively. Sometimes though, it’s nice to get a graphical look.
FreeSoftwareMagazine: I heard a phrase today that reminded me of my childhood: “...learning and sharing together”. I’m not sure if I ever heard this exact phrase, but it was definitely a theme that was central to my early education; it’s now a central theme of my life again, this time through free software.
CNN: Microsoft claims that free software like Linux, which runs a big chunk of corporate America, violates 235 of its patents. It wants royalties from distributors and users. Users like you, maybe. Fortune's Roger Parloff reports.
dot.kde.org: The day before the real start of the KOffice meeting in Berlin, most developers had already arrived. After checking in and having dinner, they started hacking away at the KDAB office. Read on to learn about how this went and the plans the developers have for KOffice 2 and the coming weekend!
