Hi Chis, I'm a newbie to the terminal and ruby.

Have found your tutorals very, very helpful.

Thank You for putting them together, and the best to you with our schooling

Thanks. Could you tell us where you sourced all this great information? Maybe you'll provide a resources listing at the end of the series. Thanks again.

really enjoying this series on the bash. thanks

Excellent tutorial, thank you! Not only do you

show clear expertise regarding Linux OS and bash,

but the audio quality is just right too, every thing

you say is very clearly understandable. Very nice

bit of work. I thought I knew the shell pretty well,

but I learned some things.

Chris, I am new on this site but not new to videos. I don't have much to say but keep up the good work. I have seen some horrible videos that put me to programming vids generally all do anyway! But you cover a good amount of information for beginner topics, and I am retaining a lot of information while using your videos as a refresher... can't wait to see what you're doing with more advanced subjects, especially your beloved Python!

Now I am using Linux as my main OS this information is invaluable. Many thanks.

Review of Shell Basics 8

This whole series is exactly what I need to feel in control with Linux/Ubuntu (I've dual booted since Breezy).

I humbly request as much "inner workings" info as you can muster. I especially have reservations downloading/installing/compiling from source (effectively locking me out of much of the Open Source software).

Thank You your efforts are much appreciated!!

Excellent! Keep up the good work.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Chris
