As a cryptography and computer security expert, I have never understood the current fuss about the open source software movement. In the cryptography world, we consider open source necessary for good security; we have for decades. Public security is always more secure than proprietary security. It's true for cryptographic algorithms, security protocols, and security source code. For us, open source isn't just a business model; it's smart engineering practice.

Welcome to the mini System Administrator's Zone is an Wiki based FAQ. This started out as a collection of little tricks that I picked up over the years and wanted to stash in a place where they would be easy to find. The originals were simply a lot of little tidbits that we never could quite remember, but that we need to use every once in a while.

Since then, it has become a stash a copy of anything I need to track down. Especially those things that Google didn't just hand over. I like the fact that I can cut/paste some original text and then begin to modify and update it into something I can actually use at work and at home.

By the way, if you see something wrong, it wouldn't bother me a bit if you corrected it. ;)
