Where I want to take this blog…

Here’s a list of things I plan to write about soon:

  • That installing Debian with the net-installer and setting it up to use a LUKS encrypted partition with LVM partitions on top of that is very straightforward nowadays (thanks to those who made such a great installer!). And of course: why you might like LUKS, and LVM.
  • That you really don’t need a blog like this because everything seems to be so well documented, but what I think I will add by writing stuff anyway. Or in other words: my preference for man pages and -doc packages over some obscure blogged how-to.
  • A discussion of useful options for keeping track of changes to your configuration files.
  • Some notes about my firewall configuration adventures.
  • A practical take on backing up your data (ideal takes on it are ubiquitous already :)).

And, of course, if I’m too slow to produce any of that, do prod me by leaving a comment.

    Ok, I just noticed this page is actually getting traffic, so I better update you on this:

    1) almost met that target, except when I did that again I did it in Ubuntu, but since the alternate installer looks almost identical to Debian’s, I think that’s ok. See here.

    2) well, did that all over the place I think, by referencing reliable documentation wherever I can.

    3) See here. Didn’t get too many people excited though.

    4) Mostly useful for myself in retrospect, but hey, that was also an aim of blogging about these things :) See here.

    5) Still haven’t figured it out, sorry! Here’s an interesting blog post I was reading the other day though.
