comment Convert a CSV file to a XLS file on the linux command line?
I need this sort of conversion at my workplace because when I pass people CSV or TSV files, half the time Excel doesn't properly detect the column separator, or the fact that strings can be quoted, or whatever, and people get confused on what's going wrong and how to resolve it. It would be a smoother experience if I could just pass people a real XLS file I 100% knew Excel wouldn't have issues with.

comment Denyhosts vs fail2ban vs iptables- best way to prevent brute force logons?
To throw another option onto the table, I recently discovered that the ufw firewall configurator also allows you to apply an (unconfigurable) rate limit to any TCP or UDP port. If you're already using UFW, this could be a good option, instead of configuring and running an additional daemon.
