A very busy day, mostly admin stuff. Every day learning new ways to dislike the need to use closed source programs at my day job...

Somehow I've managed to edit and publish (www.linux.trix.net - Portuguese only) a quick tutorial on how to "secure" single mode boots using lilo on linux - all the (not so) obvious stuff. I'm sick and tired of seeing people (mostly - but not only - newbies) expect "security" from a server wide open to physical access to anyone, and hope to clarify the common mistake of thinking that "single mode boot" == "security flaw" - and that's a feature, not a bug :)

Also defined a new article - mostly a wrapup on common installation doubts - a newbie installation checklist, so to speak. Expect more about this, but not very soon.

And the next nights will be devoted to school - nothing interesting, I think...
