southern writes "I do a lot of experimenting with htaccess, revising existing rules, updating blacklists, trying new techniques, and so forth. The result of all this fiddling is basically a ton of htaccess code scraps that work great, but for whatever reason are no longer needed, have been replaced, or whatever.
These snippets function independently, with each block of code functioning independently of the others. I definitely do not recommend copy/pasting blocks of code en masse, rather each should be applied and tested thoroughly before adding more snippets. That said, these htaccess code snippets are organized into several sections: performance, canonicalization, security, and miscellaneous.

How to deter image and bandwidth theft
southern writes "Lately I’ve been finding more and more people lifting images directly from my blog and using them on their own websites (a practice known as hotlinking). Not only is this stealing, but each time someone visits the page that hotlinks my image(s), it drains the bandwidth I’m paying my web host for.
With a little .htaccess wizardry, anyone stealing my images now has a web page like so (click the image for a larger version):

Making an AJAX Web Chat (Part 1)
southern writes "PHP and MySQL
When discussing real time communication, there aren’t many solutions that can rival the power of a simple webchat. What is even better, is that you already have all the tools you need to create one – your web browser. This, coupled with the fact that this is also one of the most requested tutorials by Tutorialzine’s readers, means that it is about time to start coding.
In this two-part tutorial, we will be creating an AJAX Web Chat using PHP, MySQL and jQuery. In this first part, we will be discussing the PHP & MySQL side, and next week we will continue with the jQuery and CSS front-end.

Linux Shortcuts and Commands
southern writes "Linux Newbie Administrator Guide
This is a practical selection of the commands we use most often. Press to see the listing of all available command (on your PATH). On my small home system, it says there are 2595 executables on my PATH. Many of these "commands" can be accessed from your favourite GUI front-end (probably KDE or Gnome) by clicking on the right menu or button. They can all be run from the command line. Programs that require GUI have to be run from a terminal opened under a GUI.
Notes for the UNIX Clueless:
1. LINUX IS CASE-SENSITIVE. For example: Netscape, NETSCAPE and nEtscape are three different commands. Also my_filE, my_file, and my_FILE are three different files. Your user login name and password are also case sensitive. (This goes with the tradition of UNIX and the "c" programming language being case sensitive.)
2. Filenames can be up to 256 characters long and can contain letters, numbers, "." (dot), "_" (underscore), "-" (dash), plus some other not recommended characters.
3. Files with names starting with "." are normally not shown by the ls (list) or dir commands. Think of these files as "hidden". Use ls -a (list with the option "all") to see these files.
4. "/" is an equivalent to DOS "" (root directory, meaning the parent of all other directories).
5. Under Linux, all directories appear under a single directory tree (there are no DOS-style drive letters).
6. In a configuration file, a line starting with # is a comment.
