Linux On Your Linksys - A 5 Minute How-To
Nice guide.
"Well, fsck that. I have heard of running Linux on Linksys, but never had a compatible router to test with. It turned out to be very straight-forward, so I decided I'd put together a quick and to-the-point how-to. This is for the WRT54G Vers. 6, 5.1 and 5 only, NOT the GS don't brick your router."

Fldigi and amateur radio on Linux
Old-school nets.
"In 1999, a new kind of digital mode appeared. It's called PSK, for Phase Shift Keying, and it's known as a "sound card" digital mode because it uses a computer's sound card to encode and to decode the transmitted signal. Older digital modes like RTTY have been revitalized as "sound card" modes, and completely new modes like PSK and MFSK have appeared. The new modes are proving as popular with long time hams as they are with new hams, like me."

Advanced XML parsing techniques using Perl
This article shows you how to convert an XML document using Perl into a tree of objects in memory. Most Perl programmers find this approach more natural, and it is indeed more convenient.
