Local Unix Linux Article Repository Updated!

Happy weekend,

As you may or may not know, I'm in the habit of submitting articles on Linux, Unix, shell scripting, etc, to article sites every now and again. Mostly to promote this blog, which shouldn't be a problem if you're reading this ;)

Now that we've got another socked away, I'm bringing it in-house. I do this for 2 reasons:

1. I have no idea when my online articles are going to be randomly deleted

2. Generally, I have to "edit for content" no matter where I submit. This is okay, although I must admit that it burns a little when I have to pour over an article to remove html tags and relevant links (against policy) only to have my words draped with 100's of advertisements for miracle cream ;)

For today, I've posted both versions of an article on ways to trick JumpStart into working across subnets without following the rules :) In a future post, we'll go into how to script out this kind of setup, so you can do it on the fly. Sometimes, when the seconds count, executing a shell script is a lot more comforting than methodically following a long set of rules ;)

Here they are - the two separate versions (Posting both because the two separate article sites mangled them in two separate ways):

Jumpstarting Across Subnets - version 1

Jumpstarting Across Subnets - version 2

Hope you enjoy reading one of them and have a great Saturday!
