How to Connect to a Linux Server with SSH, Using PuTTY – Pageant – Windows

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

1. Generate SSH Certificate

a. 1st thing you need to do is to create a SSH certificate in your server, I did this in my cPanel / WHM. Just browse around to find SSH icon, then the Generate a New Key link. You will be asked to give your new key a name & password, then Key Type & Key Size (I used the default values here DSA / 1024, you may experiment with other values). Next click on Generate Key.

How to Create Tarball & Compress to GZip Under Windows (.tar.gz)

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

I thought files with .tar.gz extension were just like compressed files with a .zip or .rar extension, but in fact they are a bit different.

.tar.gz are two extensions & not one, which means this kind of files are created using two processes (& probably two tools).

How to Get Back Vista / XP Taskbar Under Windows 7

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Like me, you maybe didn’t like the new way the Taskbar works under Windows 7, big icons, no descriptions, & the annoying thing (for me at least), grouping all the windows of a program systematically, which was confusing me & forcing me to make extra mouse moves & clicks.

What sort of Book is this that leaves neither a small nor a big thing, but has recorded it

Friday, October 16th, 2009

And the Book (one’s Record) will be placed (in the right hand for a believer in the Oneness of Allâh, and in the left hand for a disbeliever in the Oneness of Allâh), and you will see the Mujrimûn (criminals, polytheists, sinners), fearful of that which is (recorded) therein.
