Download a GNU/Linux administration e-book for free

The Free Technology Academy is giving away free copies of its e-book, GNU/Linux Advanced Administration. Read about what it includes and get the link to the download.

The Free Technology Academy is offering a complimentary copy of GNU/Linux Advanced Administration, a 500+page e-book that you can download in PDF format (19 MB). There is a registration page to fill out, but I didn't think it was too bad; it only took a minute. They send a confirmation email that provides the link to the download.

The guide covers everything from an introduction to the operating system, basic tools, and the kernel to more advanced topics including:

  • Network administration
  • Server administration
  • Data administration
  • Security
  • Configuring and tuning
  • Clustering

It's definitely worth a look. I came by it on ubuntugeek.com. Here's the link to request your e-book download.

Why do they want my phone number and address? So they can send me crap I don't want and call me when I'm busy.

I have a junk email address and non-working but valid phone number for just these situations.

Magic Jack mostly doesn't work anyway, so it makes a wonderful phone number for these kinds of needs. You don't even need to keep it plugged in for it to become a "valid" phone number.
