- Reducing PDF file-size in Linux | The Road to Elysium – The other day I downloaded a PDF that ended up being a whole lot bigger than I thought. A “whopping” 230MB, which is another deal compared to the 30MB PDF’s that I’m accustomed to. So how to reduce the file-size? Ghostscript to the rescue!
- Automate tmux sessions with tmuxinator – For those of us who spend a lot of time at a terminal, tmux is almost always part of our standard arsenal of tools. In my quest to make tmux a little more flexible, I came across tmuxinator today.
- About ShellCheck – ShellCheck is a static analysis and linting tool for sh/bash scripts. It's mainly focused on handling typical beginner and intermediate level syntax errors and pitfalls where the shell just gives a cryptic error message or strange behavior, but it also reports on a few more advanced issues where corner cases can cause delayed failures.

- Hackinsight.org – eyBox is a free, Web-based SSH Console – an open source application that can be used to manage multiple SSH sessions on multiple systems. It allows you to execute commands on multiple shells, manage keys, share terminal commands, and upload files to multiple systems simultaneously. It will generate a private/public key pair on initial startup, also you can define your own custom key if you like. Moreover, you can add additional system admins, and audit terminal history of them.
- skavanagh/KeyBox – KeyBox is a web-based SSH console that centrally manages administrative access to systems. KeyBox combines key management and administration through profiles assigned to defined users. Administrators can login using two-factor authentication with FreeOTP or Google Authenticator. From there they can manage their public SSH keys or connect to their systems through a web-shell. Commands can be shared across shells to make patching easier and eliminate redundant command execution. KeyBox layers TLS/SSL on top of SSH and can act as a bastion host for administration. Layering protocols for security is described in detail in "The Security Implications of SSH" whitepaper. SSH key management is enabled by default to prevent unmanaged public keys and enforce best practices.
- ExQuilla – ExQuilla is an addon for Mozilla's Thunderbird email client that allows access to both messages and contacts stored on Exchange Server 2007, 2010, or 2013. ExQuilla uses EWS (Exchange Web Services) for access to the server. ExQuilla (beginning with release 24) will work with either Thunderbird 17.* or 24.* on Windows, Linux, and OSX platforms. Support for Thunderbird 31.* will be available soon, and at that point support for Thunderbird 17 will be dropped. ExQuilla is not free software, but is licensed on an annual basis. New users are granted a free 60 day trial license automatically. For further information on ExQuilla licensing, see the ExQuilla Licensing Overview page.

- Configuring OpenLDAP pass-through authentication to Active Directory – Alex Tcherniakhovski – Security – Site Home – MSDN Blogs – This particular functionality of OpenLDAP should be of special interest for environments where long term co-existence between OpenLDAP and Active Directory is required. By establishing pass-through authentication the following advantages could be achieved: Great end-user experience. No need to remember multiple passwords Increased security, due to the reduction of the attack surface (one less password store in the environment) Single password policy The rest of the post will expand on the instructions provided by the OpenLDAP 2.4 Administration guide on establishing pass-through authentication from OpenLDAP to Active Directory. Specifically, will will leverage the capability of SASL to use LDAP as an authentication back-end. In our case, Active Directory will play a role of such authentication back-end.

- wemux — multi-user tmux – wemux enhances tmux to make multi-user terminal multiplexing both easier and more powerful. It allows users to host a wemux server and have clients join in either: Mirror Mode gives clients (another SSH user on your machine) read-only access to the session, allowing them to see you work, or Pair Mode allows the client and yourself to work in the same terminal (shared cursor) Rogue Mode allows the client to pair or work independently in another window (separate cursors) in the same tmux session. It features multi-server support as well as user listing and notifications when users attach/detach.
- What are useful Bash aliases and functions – Xmodulo – [,,,[As a command line adventurer, you probably found yourself repeating the same lengthy commands over and over. If you always ssh into the same machine, if you always chain the same commands together, or if you constantly run a program with the same flags, you might want to save the precious seconds of your life that you spend repeating the same actions over and over[…] Il migliore comunque è l'ultimo alias: busy 😀 (Funzionano quasi tutti anche su mac)
- pdfgrep – Pdfgrep is a tool to search text in PDF files. It works similar to grep.
