  • Charted – Charted is a tool for automatically visualizing data, created by the Product Science team at Medium. Give it the link to a data file and Charted returns a beautiful, shareable chart of the data. We built Charted with a few core principles in mind: Charted does not store any data. It only fetches and visualizes what the link provides. It also refetches the data every 30 minutes, so the chart is always up-to-date. Charted does not transform or manipulate data. It displays only and exactly what it receives. Any necessary calculations or adjustments must already be reflected in the data. Charted is not a formatting tool. It is deliberately sparse in features. Charted focuses on getting from the data to the visualization with the fewest decisions possible. As a result, we simplified Charted to just a few options. Here’s a walk-through of those options. [ via ]

  • Enterprise/Authentication/sssd – Ubuntu Wiki – The sssd authentication in Ubuntu works pretty decently. You can use it basically with any directory-style backend, including OpenLDAP, Kerberos, RedHat's FreeIPA and Microsoft's Active Directory. The good part about sssd is that it can be used to log into multiple directory services, so if you have some users in one directory, and the the rest in a different place, this works pretty decently in sssd. You can use it for single-server deployments with plain LDAP with servers or workstations (where you could as well go with pam-ldap and nss-ldap), but also, or especially for more sophisticated setups.
