Offhand, how about:

- Geographic distribution for applications -- particularly
  - Partitioning users between data centers,
  - Data replication between data centers, and
  - Failover, in case something goes Very Wrong

- Introductory Postgresql (possibly for experienced mysql users, possibly not)

- Alternatives to BIND
  - for authoritative name servers, and
  - as cacheing name servers for local users

- Building a basic home or office firewall
  - with iptables
  - with pf
  - Comparison of dedicated firewall distros: pfSense, m0n0wall, smoothwall, etc
  - Whether, when and how to include squidguard, dansguardian or the like

- Setting up database server failover
  - Mysql: master ring replication and CARP or heartbeat
  - Postgresql: ???

- Git, mercurial, etc.
