Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi. I'm a Unix Administrator, mathematics enthusiast, and amateur philosopher. This is where I rant about that which upsets me, laugh about that which amuses me, and jabber about that which holds my interest most: Unix.

Disclaimer: I am an AWS employee. This blogpost is my own configuration and does not reflect a supported configuration for AWS VPC VPN. This *should* work for you, but YMMV.
I've been testing a configuration for ipsec between an OpenBSD-5.6 (STABLE) machine and AWS VPC VGW. One thing to keep in mind is that OpenBSD's ipsec implementation is policy-based, whereas AWS is route-based, so you'll run into some issues when leveraging dynamic routing. For the time-being, I'll stick...

My wife is a gamer. Gamers are a bit...uhh, different from your typical "computer nerds". They're a bit mean, abrasive, and...well, ok, they're pretty much exactly like most computer nerds I know =)
Last night my wife decided to prank a twitch.tv live stream. It's common practice for "followers" to have hilarious names and laugh gloriously when a streamer reads their new follower names out loud to their thousands of viewers during a live broadcast. So there...

I know Comcast has suspended their 250 GB limit and have been trialing different data plans, including one of the more idiotic ideas I've read yet (more on that in a moment), but I never bothered to actually read up on the stupidity that is taking place in the U.S.'s largest cable provider's upper management tier.
On first glance, lifting the 250 GB per month limit is a great idea. On the flipside, the way they are working around this is by raising the limit to 300 GB (gracias, amigos!...

Headed out the door and ended up skiing down my lawn this morning before work (steep lawn + heavy backpack + very slick mossy ground = me on my back, but not until I built up enough speed to actually do some damage to myself and the lawn). By the time I got home tonight from work, my back was hurting bad enough for me to take a few pain killers. They've definitely kicked in, it's getting late, and I think I have too much going on at the same time.

The internet sucks. Well, more succinctly: "The internet is run by people, and people suck."
My wife called me at work today complaining that our internet connection was unstable. While this isn't surprising, I suppose she anticipated my next question because she then said "but it only seems to be $game, everything else is working smoothly? Is this Comcast or your firewall causing problems?" I resisted the urge to absolve the firewall immediately of any wrong...
