Cool User File Systems, Part 1: SSHFS

http://www.linux-mag.com

In keeping with our current theme of cool user-space file systems, this article examines the first user-space file system I ever used: SSHFS. SSHFS has a client that can mount and interact with a remote file system as though the file system were local. It uses sftp so it’s as secure as sftp is (I’m not a security expert so I can’t comment on the security of ssh).

Install Imule On Debian Lenny

http://www.howtoforge.com

When I write these lines, the latest version of Imule is 1.4.6. But ... It relies on packages version (libgcj10, libstdc++6) that are released with the unstable (sid) version of Debian. So either you upgrade Debian to unstable version or you choose a lower version of Imule. I chose the latter: to install an old version of Imule.

[Tip] PostgreSQL Tip of the Day - mass modification of sequences

http://blog.credativ.com

Someone posted a dilemma to the pgsql-sql list today that involved many if not all of his sequences getting out of sync with their respective "serial" columns. In other words, something like "SELECT max(id) FROM sometable" yields 42, but the sequence nextval for sometable.id is currently set to 36. This is obviously bad (for reasons left as an exercise for the reader).
