- Microlite BackupEDGE SS Release 01.02.00 (old version, please see more recent reviews for more accurate information)
Linux|Unix Shells by Example by Ellie Quigley  
- Ellie Quigley is really an excellent writer-the text is clear, the examples are well chosen- this is a thoroughly enjoyable book.
Panasonic LF-D201U DVD-RAM 
- DVD-RAM is optical storage that: * Is relatively inexpensive * Holds a large amount of data (4.7GB per side at this writing) * Can be re-written hundreds of thousands of times * Has an expected media life of 30 years * Is bootable * Is really ideal for small system backup
- squidGuard works with Squid to block access to sites by domain, ip address or even keywords. It is very flexible, even allowing you to block access at certain times of day and allow it at others, and even to define groups within your organization that have different access privileges.
