comment Blocking outgoing connects with iptables
It has been a long time since I ran Bastille, and it covers different things than Shorewall. Shorewall is strictly about building firewalls. It has several configuration files with clear functions. Many are optional if you need the features. The available documentation makes it easy to get things right and understand what you have done.

On Linux/UNIX platforms the desktop is a set of applications that use the kernel services. This make it easy to add, swap, or remove desktops. Servers often replace the desktop with a terminal shell.

comment Using rsync + cron to sync a machine behind a firewall with my dropbox
I'm using it, and there isn't much left to be done on it. I would only expect bug fixes or platform additions. But I it covers all the platforms I would need.

See my edit, and look at the Wikipedia article on the timezone. Regina is significantly far from the border with Manitoba.
