This tutorial shows how to install and use SpeedyCGI (also known as PersistentPerl) on a Debian Etch system. SpeedyCGI is a way to run Perl scripts persistently, which can make them run much more quickly. It keeps the Perl interpreter running, and during subsequent runs, this interpreter is used to handle new executions instead of starting a new Perl interpreter each time.

Installing OpenOffice.org 2.3 on Fedora
How to install the “official” OpenOffice.org 2.3 directly from http://www.openoffice.org on Fedora, Red Hat and Centos Linux.
OpenOffice.org, the free and very good office suite of programs (word processor, database, spreadsheet, presentation manager) is distributed with Fedora, Red Hat and Centos Linux. However, the version that is distributed with the operating systems is not exactly the same as the “official version” that can be downloaded from http://www.openoffice.org. Plus, the version at http://www.openoffice.org tends to be newer than the ones that have made it into Fedora, Red Hat and Centos directly.
