The majority of the content on this site is devoted to GNU/Linux and grew out of activity with the local LUG (Linux User Group).

The Tutorials are written for Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu. With minor adaptations, the information should be applicable to most versions of Linux.

My blog also is written for GNU/Linux although the topics are more varied and include security, privacy, and Virtualization (KVM, OpenVZ, and LXC).

Tweaks are a collection of configuration options including a sample bashrc and zshrc files.
