Seasoned system administrators know that routinely reading system logs is an important task, but reading endless lines from logs is both time-consuming and boring, especially if you are responsible for a large number of busy servers. In this article I will show you how to set up a system that gathers and archives system logs from many network hosts and emails only important or irregular system events to administrators.
A question I've been asked a couple of times - whether it's actually worth upgrading from Dapper (LTS) to Edgy Eft which is out very shortly (or already depending on when this is published). While it's always up to the individual whether they upgrade or not (and this is a special case as the user would be upgrading from an LTS release), there are some good reasons for doing so:

Like dd, dd_rescue does copy data from one file or block device to another.dd_rescue is a tool to help you to save data from crashed partition. It tries to read and if it fails, it will go on with the next sectors where tools like dd will fail. If the copying process is interrupted by the user it is possible to continue at any position later. It can copy backwards.
If your GPG private key becomes compromised, you need to revoke it to warn others not to trust future signatures or encrypt data to your public key. However, by the time a key compromise happens, you might not have your GPG key available, such as if it resided on hardware stolen from you, or the attacker removed it after accessing it. This article shows you how to generate and preserve a revocation certificate now, before you actually need it.
Templates make life easier when you use them for letters, documents, brochures, etc. but they really make life easier when you use them for labels. This article is about how to use the OpenOffice.org templates, in particular the WorldLabel templates, to print the labels you need. It shows how to download them, install them, use them as they are, and how to customize them with graphics and other features. It also shows how to use the OpenOffice.org label wizard; you can use the label wizard each time, or save the template you create in the same template repository with your WorldLabel templates.
