comment Software for a local iGoogle / Netvibes
Documentation has been updated. If you use a bundled version (e.g. the tomcat bundle) installation is no more than unzipping and starting up. There's even a demo application that will be running this way. Login is through clicking a link on the homepage of your new demo installation. Once you get rid of the demo content there's an initial standard account. If you don't want to depend on a third party, you'll most likely have to invest some work (or money). Liferay has a learning curve, but it's certainly doable.

comment What steps should I take to secure Tomcat 6.x?
I usually add the chmod and chown stuff to the startup (init) script, as it runs as root. I've been bitten several times by people "helping out" starting tomcat as root, leading to files and directories to belong to root and not writable for the tomcat user once restarted properly. Did you miss "sudo chown tomcat:tomcat temp work" in your list? Or have I missed something?

comment Multiple private SSL certificates on a single shared hosting plan?
Thanks David for answering the first question - I've been gone shortly after answering. Just for hosting multiple https sites you wouldn't need more than one server though. It's perfectly ok to have one server with multiple IP addresses and bind each of the addresses to its own ssl virtual host. The limit is the ip address (and possibly the hardware limitations imposed by your server(s)) You just have to find a hoster that provides multiple IPs per server. Mentioning multidomain https hosting is usually the reason they accept if they are in that business at all.

Thanks a lot - memory creeps back... I desperately have to see that movie again, if only for this scene that has become a meme somehow...

comment IT pitfalls in movies
In the german dubbed version of Jurassic Park 1 she even pronounced it more like "oonix" - i.e. the german voice read and pronounced the work as if it was a german word instead of an english word. This combined with the funny 3d-filesystem is even more funny. Unrelated, but my second favourite scene from that movie is the T-Rex, catching up to a car, being visible in the rear view mirror - together with the sticker "objects in rear view mirror are closer than they appear". Hillarious - and even persiflaged in one of the ToyStory movies. Memories...

comment Block spam by using geoip filter?
Not really answering your question, but adding another view angle: Tom Newton's answer mentions to not block but give some additional spam score to spamassassin - This is preferable to blocking completely, because you won't block international customers completely if they just happen to route their traffic (or newsletters etc) through some non-US country (or the database is not 100% correct). You'll probably catch enough spam with this technique, but - of course - you'll have to try yourself.

comment ubuntu does not use 100% ram
I know, but as the author was not giving any hint on what is running, I didn't make the assumption that there is a lot running. Actually I was hoping that my asking for rephrasing would trigger some more information. Being a fairly unspecific question I do like the answers assembled here though. Who knows - the question might still get rephrased...
