comment Debian / Monit: mail is only sent to local system, not to outside address
You would have to look at your existing aliases. Perhaps monit is sending to some other address that is already getting aliased to rxt?

comment Debian / Monit: mail is only sent to local system, not to outside address
Getting this setup right sounds good, but is there some reason why you couldn't just set an alias on the system to forward the mail from root@localhost to the address you prefer?

Format it, and restore from the backups that you regularly make?

comment Linux invoke key combination by CLI
Ok, but to be clear, you are primarily concerned with how to do this under X11? Since the methods for a remote terminal, console, and X11 will each be different.

comment Linux invoke key combination by CLI
Why wouldn't you use one of the many screen saver programs for that purpose?

comment Linux invoke key combination by CLI
Can you provide some context for why you would want to do this? Are you connected to the physical console, in an X11 session, connected via ssh/other?

comment Is RADIUS more secure than PSK?
If you are using radius, then typically your user-database will have account lockout systems in place that will disable the account for a largish period if time after a relatively small threshold of attempts. You get 7 tries every 2 hours at one location I am aware of. A brute-force where you try only ~200-300 possibilities per day isn't going to work out so well, plus you will most likely be leaving huge logs of your activities.

comment How can I put the Windows XP firewall into an “allow all” port configuration and only block certain ports?
Pretty much no firewall allows this, because this is a very bad idea from a security perspective. It is basically impossible to protect a system if you allow all and filter bad stuff. This is simply because it is nearly impossible to define 'bad stuff'. The bad guys keep coming up with new things.

comment How can I enable a Windows-like, full-system encryption under Ubuntu?
Got any citations for why you think FDE isn't practcal? IMO ecryptfs isn't great because it does nothing for swap or tmo folders. Meaning you could be leaving unecryped docs available when you don't expect it.

comment How to connect to my client's server from my laptop using a cross over cable?
The workgroup is irrelevant for RDP, no need to mess around with that. Can you verify that the link-light on the Network interface went on when you connected the cable? BTW, if the equipment isn't old, then you don't really need a cross-over cable.

If you have your own server, why wouldn't you setup an VPN, so you can tunnel everything?

What leads you to believe that a VPN cannot bridge? It is pretty easy to bridge a connection with OpenVPN
