The Linux-Ecology-HOWTO discusses ways to make computers less harmful to our environment and to solve some ecological issues. It explains how to use Linux to save power and consumables like paper and ink. Since it does not require big hardware, Linux may be used with old computers to make their life cycle longer. Games may be used in environmental education and software is available to simulate ecological processes.

The GnuPG MiniHOWTO explains to install, run, use and troubleshoot GnuPG. It also pays attention to things to think about regarding encryption. This miniHOWTO was originally written in German and has been rewritten in English (and thus been adjusted). GnuPG is a complete and free replacement for PGP. Because it does not use IDEA or RSA it can be used without any restrictions. GnuPG is nearly in compliance with RFC2440 (OpenPGP).
The Infrared-HOWTO (formerly known as the IR-HOWTO) is an introduction to Linux and infrared devices and how to use the software provided by the Linux/IrDA project. This package uses IrDA(TM) compliant standards. Remote Control (RC) via infrared is not the aim of the project, though this topic is partly treated in the HOWTO.
