Getting alerts when Java processes crash
When bugs occur in the Java runtime environment, most administrators want to get notified so they can take corrective action. These actions can range from restarting a Java process, collecting postmortem data or calling in application support personnel to debug the situation further. The Java runtime has a number of useful options that can be used for this purpose. The following blog post describes two of these options, and how they can be used to alert operational staff to problems with the Java runtime.

Creating Snapshot-Backups with FlyBack On Ubuntu 7
FlyBack is a tool similar to Apple's TimeMachine. It is intended to create snapshot-backups of selected directories or even your full hard drive. From the FlyBack project page: "FlyBack is a snapshot-based backup tool based on rsync. It creates successive backup directories mirroring the files you wish to backup, but hard-links unchanged files to the previous backup. This prevents wasting disk space while providing you with full access to all your files without any sort of recovery program. If your machine crashes, just move your external drive to your new machine and copy the latest backup using whatever file browser you normally use." This article shows how to install and use FlyBack on Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon).

Create a Sudoku Rich Client game with Eclipse

Create a Sudoku Rich Client Platform (RCP) game application in Eclipse, and learn how to use eventing to validate the user's input.

Splitting lighttpd Logs With vlogger
Vlogger is a little tool with which you can write lighttpd logs broken down by virtual hosts and days. With vlogger, we need to put just one accesslog.filename directive into our global lighttpd configuration, and it will write access logs for each virtual host and day. Therefore, you do not have to split lighttpd's overall access log into access logs for each virtual host each day, and you do not have to configure lighttpd to write one access log per virtual host (which could make you run out of file descriptors very fast). At the end of this tutorial I will show you how to use webalizer to create statistics from the lighttpd access logs.

MacBook Air review - Engadget
Not on my list. But is a very nice looking machine.
"It fits in a manila folder, you can slide it under a door, and if you threw it hard enough you could probably chop someone in half with the thing. It's the thinnest, and if we may say so, sexiest laptop around today: the MacBook Air. But looks aren't everything to everyone, and despite all the rhetoric about being a no-compromises ultraportable, Apple did leave plenty on the cutting-room floor in its quest to make an absurdly thin ultraportable that doesn't skimp on a full size keyboard or roomier 13-inch display. But, as many potential buyers have been asking themselves since last week, is the Air right to be your next machine? Read on, we'll tell you what we think."
