Installing SUSE linux - then putting MYSQL , APACHE 2 , TOMCAT, and SAMBA on the machine. Setting up a JSP website to run on it - and actually getting it to connect to other windows machines with file shares.

Lame - yes I know - but I'm a windows baby and an ASP programmer!

THE coolest thing I've ever done...

was playing the wargame at www.hackerslab.org. I LOVE that game. Although the password cracking/hacking techniques are probably a little outdated (I don't know, I'm just guessing), still, you learn a lot about programming and exploits, and ways that you can make your system a little more secure!!!

not to mention compiling the 2.6.6 kernel, getting dvds to play, and playing Uplink (http://www.introversion.co.uk/uplink/).

Getting C-enabled GCC on a 486SX with 4MB of RAM, no CDROM drive, and SmallLinux 0.7.5 using 2 floppies, 2 hours, and alot of patience (and alot of copying header files ). It works well, too.

Setting up LAMP server at home, hosting my website (and a few others from my house), and then making my wife's win98 box and MacPowerbook all connect to my server.

Please don't laugh I've only been using Linux for 2 to 3 weeks. But the coolest thing I've done with Linux is installing Apollon.

Wow, this thread's still going!

I now have a home server and firewall setup that's completely linux-based! The server is a musical centerpoint for artists that serves audio streaming, HTTP, and FTP. There are many users signed up too! It totally rocks. http://osrv.servehttp.com

And having my sister's PC boot Knoppix live is VERY cool ...

Use vi to program and those commands will stay in your head!

- currently learning awk/gawk

awk/gawk can be used in alot of different ways.............case in point
I wrote a shell script that calls on awk to search thru my .ogg files and to
choose one at random and play it thru mplayer........
pretty nifty ........

I know that I wrote a few weeks ago that the coolest thing I've done is install Apollon. Now that I know a little more about linux I'm doing some other stuff. But most recently and most successfully I've got my computer up as a server for my webpage using apache. I"m very proud of this.

Not knowing anything about remote controlling computers (except ftp file sharing) I've got VNC communicating my Mandrake 10 linux desktop with my win98 laptop. I thought that was kind of a cool accomplishment. Now if I can just get my laptop to stop freezing every time I try to access my desktop through ssh I would be able to add that to the list. But oh well one thing at time I suppose.
