If you look into the recommendation regarding running your SSH server on default port 22, or chaing it to another port number. Why do you might want to do that? It's basically a simple and effective form of security through obscurity. The simple explanation:
If your SSH server isn't on port 22 it's far less likely to be hit by brute force login attempts by those scanning the whole internet looking for weak passwords on default accounts. If you're scanning the whole net you can't afford to check all 64k possible ports to find the SSH server. This won't help you if somebody is targeting you specifically, but otherwise it can be a quite effective security trick
Here I will show you how to change the default port on your Ubuntu SSH server! But this will also work on distributions like Fedora, Open SUSE and Linux Mint.
As a paying customer I never settled with this idea, and have struggled to find a way around these limitations, and with some extra testing I finally discovered how I can trick this
Update Manager is a program that updates all installed software and their associated packages, with important software updates for security or recommended patches. The Update Manager checks for updates regularly and gives you much of the same advatadges as the loved and hated Windows Update functionality in W7.

Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first.
A sudden freeze in an application can in some cases be a rather cumbersome problem to solve. Many times we don't have any indications why the application freezes no matter if is a Java, C# or C++ application, web site or dll. In some cases we might have a log file to help us look for the source of the hang or freeze, but in many cases we don't have any indications of problem until we suddenly run in Release mode and far from our dev env!
Here I will try to give some guidelines on how to attack this problem.

Yesterday during a documentation session I wanted to add several SQL-queries in a Confluence post. Of course Confluence supports code segments with highlighting etc through the Confluence New Code Macro. It's easy enough to get started with the macro, but specifying parameters turned out to be very poorly documented. This post will hopefully help fill some of the gap!
