Spam filtering w/ Postfix + Amavisd-new

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Anyone have experience with this setup?

My clients and I have noticed a big uptick in spam coming through the
system I manage recently.

I knew I had to deal with a few bugs related to clamd and freshclam and
file permissions. Once I dealt with those issues, getting rid of errors in
the maillog related to scanning for viruses, I've cleaned up some amavisd
configuration files and have tweaked amavisd.conf.

I noticed yesterday that the spamd process wasn't even running (although I
didn't see anything in the logs about it not being available), so I've
started that process and am planning on adding that to my list of services
that Nagios needs to monitor.

A lot of spam is still coming through the system, and I was wondering what
methods you guys use to combat spam.

Right off the bat, before Postfix sends the mail to amavisd for scanning,
I've been rejecting mail sent from known bad IP addresses using Spamhouse,
Spamcop and Barracuda's blacklists:

Any used these Powershell solutions to manage a nix box?

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
Good Morning sports fans,

Once in while we nix users get this issue, you have a nix box you need to connect to but the other company has a winders centric vpn.
So you have to use a winders box.
I know about putty and cygwin. But I was wondering if anyone had tried these commandlets or modules in Powershell to manage a nix box?

Hardware donations for library

I'm working on a project to get some Linux machines set up for the
Rossville Public Library with some programming tools and possibly open
source media editing. I was wondering if anyone on the list might have
some hardware they would be interested in donating or if anyone knows
of a project that helps to get hardware with open source software into
places like libraries. Also, I'm considering a crowdfunding campaign,
what would you recommend for something like that? I appreciate any
suggestions or contributions, thanks.

Sincerely,
Robert A. Kelly III

Open Chattanooga Civic Hack Night - Trails!

From: Sean Brewer 
------------------------------------------------------
All,

Tomorrow we will have an Open Chattanooga hack night, for trails!:
http://www.meetup.com/cfabrigade/Chattanooga-TN/1188522/

It will be on the 4th Floor tomorrow night starting at 5:30 until whenever
the library decides to kick us out.

Since we finished mapping the trails on Enterprise South Nature Park in
OSM, we will begin creating an interactive webmap from that:
https://github.com/openchattanooga/enterprise-south-nature-park-webmap/wiki/Develop-Webmap

We also want non-devs involved as well! With the ESNP interactive map we
could use feedback, testing, feature request, UX help. You don't need to be
a dev to do that.

Also, there's not a central location where ALL of the local trails are
documented. Chattanooga has a localwiki that folks can edit:
http://localwiki.net/cha/ where those trails could be listed

If you have any other trail related hacks/ideas, bring those and show up!
We'll try to break into teams by project interest.

learned a lot in 24 hours

From: Ed King 
------------------------------------------------------
because I don't have an Apple mouse for my Mac Plus,  I want to replicate this guys project...

http://giferrari.net/blog/?p=159


so I started researching yesterday...    and boy did I have a lot to learn...   total noob...  never done any embedded programming and don't have an Arduino so no experience compiling "sketches"  (didn't even know what the hell a sketch was)

I've learned a lot in 24 hours.  

seems all I need to get started is the Arduino IDE, an ATTiny85 and this thing:  https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11801
(out of stock on sparkfun, but I found it on Amazon).    
Also got the ATTiny85 on amazon and paid way to much for it, but hey its only money

So...

I download the Arduino IDE for Winsux:  http://arduino.cc/en/main/software
"installed" the ATtiny board definitions:  https://github.com/damellis/attiny/tree/master/attiny
downloaded that dude's "sketch" code:  http://giferrari.net/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Mac2PS2.zip
and succesfully compiled it to a hex file (after conquering that damn "Wprogram.h" not found) ready to send to the ATtiny85...  once it arrives :)

Yeah I could have bought a real Mac Plus mouse for about the same amount as I'll have spent on all the AVR stuff, but where's the fun in that?

I think there may be one other person on this list who gives a rats ass about this project :)    Oh well.  In a few days I'll let y'all know if it worked or not.

Pretend you are designing your dream home (or perhaps are remodeling

service anyway), what would you put in?

Audio/Video/Network/Automation/Alarm/Security/Camera/Paging

Rack full of Linux servers/VMs goes without saying, so we're on-topic.
:)  I've already decided on multiple CAT-6A pulls through-out the
house.  I have been impressed enough with Unifi that I will be using
their wireless, controlled by a Debian VM.  I know some of you have
some awesome ideas.  Feel free to unicast if you don't want to share
on the public forum, but I would enjoy hearing those ideas.
