comment How can I list all installed packages from lenny-backports?
So in other words, ~S is like an operator which means "the next two conditions have to apply to the exact same package and version".

comment I just got a linode VPS a week ago and I've been flagged for SSH scanning
Read log files such as /var/log/auth.log to see who logged in or attempted to log in and which user they logged in as. Other log files such as /var/log/syslog will show more comprehensive, general information that can also give clues. Remember the attacker may have had access to modify or delete these logs. Also, this should not be a substitute for reinstalling the OS.

I run through Spamhaus Zen's DNSBL and PSBL - question updated with info. I have considered using spamassassin with a very high threshold but not sure how effective it'll be on this type of spam.

comment Does orientation affect hard drive lifespan?
"If their heads were heavy, and sagging was a problem I'd say that horizontal position would be better" But by a similar argument, the distance between the head and the surface is extremely crucial, and you wouldn't want the same sag to affect that clearance (though I understand there is a "bubble" of air between them).

comment Does orientation affect hard drive lifespan?
It is an excellent point, though the hard drives in iPods are quite different to the hard drives used in desktops/servers. I know, for example, that smaller hard drives can take a LOT more shock and vibration than larger ones. 2.5" drives can take about 10 times as much as 3.5" drives. It's logical that other characteristics would vary with drive size/type as well.
