Stop the Presses
The port of the Linux Operating System to Mips R4x00 based computers has been announced on the Internet. A complete Linux/MIPS distribution is expected in 1995.
This message announces the availability of version 0.9.2 of Linux/68k. It can be ftped from directory /pub/linux/680x0 at tsx-11.mit.edu. A precompiled kernel executable can be found in vmlinux-0.09pl2.gz in the “kernel” subdirectory.
The corresponding “bootstrap” program for the Amiga is available in file amiboot-1.8.gz in the “kernel” subdirectory. If available, the “bootstrap” program for the Atari will be found in file “ataboot-0.2.gz” in the “kernel” subdirectory (the author of this ANNOUNCE-* file cannot compile such a “bootstrap” program and thus is waiting for one from someone else).
The source patch for the this version of the kernel can be found in linux-0.9.pl2.diff.gz in the “src” subdirectory.
Lars Wirzenius posted in comp.os.linux.announce: ..I'm taking over maintenance of the Linux Software Map, or LSM for short. I'll start by making a number of changes; see the new LSM template below. In addition to changes to the template, you might want to prepare yourselves for some initial confusion on my part while I make myself comfortable with the new job. :-)
Hopefully everything will go well. Don't wish me luck, send me constructive criticism.
I am uploading to sunsite a database in the new form and a tool for browsing it. The tool, called lsmtool, is not all that well written, and is somewhat prone to crash. You have been warned. It also requires Publib, a library of C functions I've written, which you will have to get separately.
I would be grateful if anyone who keeps the LSM on WWW or makes it otherwise available would contact me. There might be something that I can do to make your life simpler, and at the very least, I can list URL's in the README.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
