[20:54] Dell Announces A Linux Laptop Designed for Developers - A few years ago Dell began offering the Ubuntu distribution of Linux on its desktops and laptops, but quietly dropped the option from its online store in 2010 (though it’s still possible to order certain machines with Ubuntu). Today at the Ubuntu Developers Summit Dell announced that it is dipping its toes into back into the Linux laptop market with Project Sputnik, a developer-centric laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 on Dell’s XPS13 Ultrabook hardware.
[23:37] Making A Easy-To-Setup $50 Linux Multi-Seat Computer - While it's improved a lot recently, in the past setting up a multi-seat computer has been a pain in the ass with a lot of manual configurations needed and other peculiar steps to get the hardware/software combination working right. What if the process were a lot simpler? What if new seats could be added to a computer at a very low cost and the setup was effectively "out of the box" to the point that it's truly plug-and-play? Well, we are now effectively at that point on the Linux desktop and there is a new Kickstarter effort to help in that initiative.
[28:28] Cheers! Electronic beer fridge only opens when all work's in - If you're anything like me, when Friday rolls around you've probably got one eye on the clock and one eye looking forward to a refreshing post-work beverage.

[45:16] How To Simulate Network Devices Using SNMP Simulator - This tutorial explains how you can simulate network devices for testing purposes with the free Verax SNMP Simulator. Verax SNMP agent simulator is a tool that can simulate multiple SNMPv1/v2c agents on a single host on standard 161 port through multi-netting. It allows IT personnel to build virtual, simulated networks of devices without purchasing any additional hardware, for instance for testing purposes. Individual simulated agent responses can be initially retrieved from existing devices and modified at runtime by user defined rules.

[53:23] 60+ Practical find commands examples with explanation - find command is very much powerful command which can do good work when its needed to find files with conditions.

This entire requirement is done with single command without even writing a shell script. Let’s see how we can use find command from basics to advanced in this post.
