Over the past couple of decades, I have spent considerable time searching for solutions to various programming & system administration issues.
For many years, we used Microsoft tools exclusively for application design and database systems. In the past couple of years, I have been working with Linux systems, predominately Debian, and open-source software to lower the acquisition costs of software and systems for clients.
Open-source and Windows platforms differ in many areas, but one significant area is documentation. I find it is often necessary to do fairly extensive Internet research when trying to find answers to issues in Linux.
With that in mind, I am going to list information I come across in this blog with the hopes it will be indexed by the search engines and help others as well.
