Vimeo may be a better option for posting videos of this type as it allows for a much longer video upload and with much better quality. That said, I am watching these videos for a refresher on shell script and still learning a few things I didn't realize that I didn't know. This is a great web resource so I would like to say an emphatic thank you for your time and efforts.

Good tutorial

Unlike the original you are using Ubuntu instead of cygwin

I'm using this to prepare for my conducting my own training classes

Good Job!!

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
