I use Nano as my text editor for Linux, I know it’s not powerful and I should really learn Vi, but I really do seem to get by with Nano just fine.
Here is a great site with a quick help sheet for the editor:

I’ve also found this site with some shortcuts:
The smartmontools package contains two utility programs (smartctl and smartd) to control and monitor storage systems using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology System (SMART) built into most modern ATA and SCSI harddisks. In many cases, these utilities will provide advanced warning of disk degradation and failure.
This is a very handy set of tools for your physical Linux boxes.

In IIS 6.0 and 7 I want to have this URL www.mysite.com/sitemain to be accessible by anyone typing www.mysite.com (sitemain is a virtual directory setup under the default website) instead of the full URL.
To achieve this, simply enter in the “redirect to” box “/sitemain” and (VERY IMPORTANT) select the “A permanent redirection for …..”.
Note: I had to do this for a website recently and it did take a bit of working out at first.
In order to get Debian to start a firewall script on boot up, get the script to run before the network interface starts.
and place the script at the start with the path and the pre-up command e.g.
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
Note: the fwr.sh is the IPTABLES Script, see IPTABLES posts for details about this.
