xmonad, Zsh – in short: my desktop

I’ve been asked quite a few times now, how I could handle all those terminals – four terminals per workspace, at least three workspaces.
That makes twelve terminals opened at the same time (scripting, tweaking, etc… Sysadmins know that there can be a lot to do, even if you think, everything’s done).
By the way that’s nothing compared to when I’m running in, and I’m quoting my wife on this one, “freak mode” (eight to ten workspaces, six terminals each), but it’s just about enough for daily use.

Tor, Privoxy, Squid – a little HowTo

Why did I take this step? Well, there are several reasons for using the Tor-Network.
The most important one to me is, I want to use the World Wide Web as an information source and want every bit of information, when I’m searching for something. I don’t need someone like the German BKA to tell me, which information I’m allowed to see and which not.
So, according to the guide at howtoforge.com, I’ve created my own local Tor node for my home network. (Besides I’ve been configuring a server to act as a relay a little while ago)

Update:
Still working with the following versions:
net-misc/tor-0.2.2.6_alpha (for x in the following: 0.2.0.35< x <0.2.2.6-alpha => x is buggy)
net-proxy/privoxy-3.0.12

xorg, hal, udev && Touchpad/Mouse Toggle (>=xorg-server-1.5 < xorg-server-1.8)

I read, there were some changes between <xorg-server-1.5 and >=xorg-server-1.5. While I’ve updated my version to the latest possible (x11-base/xorg-server-1.6.0), I thought of using hal for my keyboard/touchpad/mouse-configuration.
The following configuration works for me:

Xorg && Touchpad/Mouse toggle (<xorg-server-1.5)

Following should help for turning the Touchpad off, when an external mouse is connected

[~]# cat /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules
ACTION==”add”, SUBSYSTEM==”input”, ENV{ID_CLASS}=”mouse”, RUN+=”/usr/bin/synclient TouchpadOff=1″
ACTION==”remove”, SUBSYSTEM==”input”, ENV{ID_CLASS}=”mouse”, RUN+=”/usr/bin/synclient TouchpadOff=0″
