    I've started writing a few fairly uber-geeky articles + pdfs about system administration, including tracing and debugging processes, analyzing crashes etc. Would you be interested in these? If so, can you choose the poll options you find adequate? It'll give me an idea as to what might be chic :)

    Coverage of remote image backups/restores through dd+socat would be awesome. This would be also an alternative to Acronis/Ghost for who are command line savvy. Also i suggest adding lsof to the list.
