One Of The Most Important Tools In Linux – Understanding Chmod

There are plenty of features that make Linux special, but one of them that makes it so secure is its permissions system. You can have fine-grain control over all the files in your system and assign permissions to users, groups, and everyone else. The terminal utility “chmod” helps you control all the permissions on your system, so it’s vital to know how chmod works in order to get the most use out of this feature, especially if you’re planning on building your own Linux server.

How Do I Download an Entire Website for Offline Reading?

It’s increasingly rare, but still occasionally true: sometimes you just don’t have Internet access. Whether you’re on a plane or your grandparent’s place in the country, life occasionally brings all of us to places WiFi and 4G can’t reach.

Frozen Bubble Might Be The Most Addictive Linux Game Of All

Waste your time the right way – shoot bubbles at similarly colored bubbles, in the hope of freeing the entire board of bubbles just long enough for more bubbles to show up. It’s called Frozen Bubble, and it’s more than a game. Actually, it’s not more than a game. It’s a game, and for a long time it was one of the best put together games for Linux. That’s not been true for a while – the platform has grown leaps and bounds for gamers since then.

From FAT To NTFS To ZFS: File Systems Demystified [MakeUseOf Explains]

Do you really know what your hard drive does whenever you read a file from it or write one to it?

Hard drives, solid state drives, and removable media can all potentially “lose” files because of numerous different causes.

For Literary Penguins: 4 Great Writing Tools [Linux]

A great amount of productivity comes from writing tasks, whether it be for school assignments, articles for your blog, or much more. While full-featured office applications tend to be the norm for such tasks, it may sometimes be a good idea to go in the opposite direction and use some simpler or specialized tools, depending on what you’re working on. Often, this can either help you focus more on the work that’s ahead.

QuiteRSS – A Clean & Effective Standalone RSS Reader

It’s a shame that Google Reader is being retired soon, but it’s also a good time to realize that there are (and always have been) some incredibly viable alternatives to the service. I’d be lying if I said that I thought Google Reader was not the best web-based RSS reader available, but there are throngs of standalone RSS applications out there for your desktop or laptop. If you’re being forced to look for a new solution to reading your RSS feeds, consider one of these.
