Meltdown Log4j

It appears that ‘log4j’ is a thing and it’s melting down the internet but with all things, it’s exaggerated at first and later downplayed.

7 Mistakes Made When Starting Out on Linux

I’ve done a few of these but I’ve learned a lot since then.

A Few Commands

Well, I learned a few things over the past few weeks. I may be used to a Linux desktop environment less so a server one. Time to lab it up and work these new commands into that muscle memory.

setfacl, getfacl, advanced permissions
chage, passwords

chcon, SELinux (Security) RedHat, CentOS, Fedora

I wasn’t sure ‘FACL’ would work on Arch and so I can the command and sure enough, it did.

Linux Certs

Interesting how many certs there are. Depending on experience and work environment may determine what path is best for you. I believe that I’m a novice at this point. My very first Linux distro was #Smoothwall back in 2001. Later in 2002 I went back to school for Network administration and learned a little of #RedHat. Next on my Linux journey, I worked for a small WISP and they used #Fedora at the time. At home, I dabbled with #Gentoo and #SuSe. Today I happen to run #Arch.
