A simple check for check_mk to monitor OSCam.
It gets the status.html file from the OSCam webinterface and looks for cards and proxies. The default configuration reports ‘Status WARN’ with one bad card and ‘Status CRIT’ with 2 or more bad cards.

With Debian Squeeze came version 220.127.116.11-2 of phpldapadmin. Since that release (or maybe an earlier 1.2*) it wants you to “Select a template to edit the entry”. Which _is_ annoying. I’d not been able to find much on a quick google query so i went with a – i guess – rather dirty solution.

First of all it should be said that encrypting the /home partition only is not recommended. This does not nearly give you the same security as e.g. encrypting all your partitions. I missed doing this task on my laptop during installation and i am too lazy to copy all my data + OS to some external location, encrypt all partations and move them back. This is why i decided to encrypt my /home partition only.

At least once a year we go for holiday together with some friends. No question, they all bring their digital cameras and take a load of pictures.
Right after we get back home they send me their images to upload them to our gallery.
