If I were a Heinlein fan I would have titled this “The importance of groking Linux,” but I don’t enjoy Heinlein’s writings very much, and anyway I don’t know that anyone totally understands Linux – people work with it, but “grok” is supposed to indicate total one-ness of being with the subject.
Linux is important. I am thankful that it’s possible to get some degree of tech support, but of course general – purpose forums don’t always have the exact tech support that one wants.
At the moment, if I want to set up an actual firewall for my network, I need to get more hardware.
Even if I can obtain that hardware, there will be many painstaking steps.
I suppose in due course, I should redesign this site to link to some relevant sites.
It’s just terrible that in this Halloween season, which comes but once a year, I’m posting about technology instead of something gothy. This makes me fear that I’m losing whatever scant goth credibility I might have ever had.
Well, painful things happen in this world and people lose things that are important to them.
