I have had several instances where my MythTV server (backend and frontend on single server) has lost its network connection, at which time recordings continue; however, the frontend can no longer connect to the backend as the backend's IP address no longer exists (due to loosing its network connection).
This article explains how to move a primary (root) partition to an extended partition. There are several ways this task can be performed; however, I chose to keep my system generally intact, introduce minimal changes, and use no external storage (other than a SD card for the LiveCD).
I had a disk layout as follows:

The README for compiling st mentions needing the Xlib header files as a prerequisite to build, this was not the case on debian (sid). To get a clean compile I needed the following packages:
PluXml is a light CMS/Blog Engine that uses XML files to store the CMS data rather than a typical RDBMS such as MySQL, Postgres, or Oracle. The main benefit of PluXml is that there is no database required, which makes it is a good fit small servers and/or virtual servers.
SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a set of diagnostic tools built-in to most modern hard drives and disks that allow monitoring of disk status. smartd is a daemon that handles running the SMART tools (smartmontools) periodically and reporting on the results.
The following guide lists the steps I use to setup smartd:
On debian distributions, the default rkhunter install (apt-get install rkhunter) does not ask you for the 'automatically run rkhunter' options that you get with a source install of rkhunter. You can easily reconfigure rkhunter with dpkg-reconfigure to configure the built-in cron jobs as follows:
Reconfigure With dpkg-reconfigure
The standard rkhunter setup 'wizard' can be invoked with dpkg-reconfigure at any time.
WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) allows "mounting" owncloud content as a local mountpoint. This can be nice if you prefer to access your owncloud data as needed rather than using the owncloud client to keep your local copy in sync with your owncloud server.
The following steps should get you up and going with webdav access to your owncloud server:
note: no changes should be needed to your owncloud server.
I have a HP PSC 1315 (all in one) Printer which is rather old (6+ years) and not network based (only connects to a single PC via a USB cable). Naturally I want to network this printer so I use my SheevaPlug Network Server to act as a Printer Server as well (I use Samba and CUPS for this).
This article is not about making a Printer Server but rather connecting other PCs/laptops on my network to this Print Server. It is an easy task but there are a few key items to know/watch out for.
The tasks are as follows (all on the client):
