<h2>Become a Linux Ninja with Command Line Kung Fu!</h2><br />Do you think you have to lock yourself in a basement reading cryptic man pages for months on end in order to have ninja like command line skills?<br /><br />In reality, if you had someone share their most powerful command line tips, tricks, and patterns you'd save yourself a lot of time and frustration. What if you could look over the shoulder of a good friend that just happened to be a command line guru? What if they not only showed you the commands they were using, but why they were using them and exactly how they worked? And what if that friend took the time to write all of it down so you can refer to it whenever you liked?<br /><br />Well, a friend did just that. <em>Command Line Kung Fu</em> is packed with dozens of tips and over 100 practical real-world examples. You won't find theoretical examples in this book. The examples demonstrate how to solve actual problems and accomplish worthwhile goals. <br /><br />The tactics are easy to find, too. Each chapter covers a specific topic and groups related tips and examples together. For example, if you need help extracting text from a file look in the "Text Processing and Manipulation" chapter. <br /><br />Also, a comprehensive index is included. If you want to find every example where a given command is used -- even if it's not the main subject of the tip -- look in the index. It will list every single place in the book where that command appears.<br /><br />Here is just some of what you will learn by reading <em>Command Line Kung Fu</em>:<br /><ul><br /><li>How to quickly and easily repeat commands in your shell history</li><br /><li>Shortcuts for grabbing specific words from your shell history to use in your current command</li><br /><li>How to save a copy of your command line session for later reference</li><br /><li>How to strip out blank lines and comments from files</li><br /><li>How to control colorized text when uses pipes and pagers</li><br /><li>Ways to transform text: from changing case to substituting characters and more</li><br /><li>How to extract specific blocks of text from files or streams of input</li><br /><li>A quick tip to fix common typos</li><br /><li>How to edit files over the network</li><br /><li>How to compare the differences between files on your local computer and a remote one</li><br /><li>How to create and use SSH tunnels</li><br /><li>Ways to verify what programs are listening on what ports</li><br /><li>How to kill all the processes for a given user with a single command<br /></li><li>Strategies for dealing with multi-hop SSH connections</li><br /><li>How to disconnect from a server in a way that will allow you to pick up where you left off</li><br /><li>How to automate software installs that require user input</li><br /><li>Shell scripting tips</li><br /><li>How to automatically keep repeating a command until it succeeds</li><br /><li>The right way to delete a file that is being written to</li><br /><li>How to surf the web from the command line... and more importantly how to download anything from the web and interact with HTTP APIs</li><br /><li>Ways to determine who and what is using the most disk space</li><br /><li>How to secure your web browser session when using an open wifi hotspot</li><br /><li>How to generate random passwords from the command line</li><br /><li>Two tips for easily creating backups</li><br /><li>Tips for handling tar archives</li><br /><li>How to replace a string in multiple files at once with just one command<br /></li><li>and much more...</li><br /></ul><br />What you learn in <em>Command Line Kung Fu</em> applies to any Linux distribution including Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, RedHat, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Slackware, and more.<br /><br /><h2>Scroll up, click the "Buy Now With 1-Click" button to get your black belt in Linux Command Line Kung Fu.</h2>

While many books explain the how of bitcoin, <i>The Internet of Money</i> delves into the why of bitcoin. Acclaimed information-security expert and author of <i>Mastering Bitcoin</i>, Andreas M. Antonopoulos examines and contextualizes the significance of bitcoin through a series of essays spanning the exhilarating maturation of this technology.<br /><br /><br />Bitcoin, a technological breakthrough quietly introduced to the world in 2008, is transforming much more than finance. Bitcoin is disrupting antiquated industries to bring financial independence to billions worldwide. In this book, Andreas explains why bitcoin is a financial and technological evolution with potential far exceeding the label “digital currency.”<br /><br /><br />Andreas goes beyond exploring the technical functioning of the bitcoin network by illuminating bitcoin’s philosophical, social, and historical implications. As the internet has essentially transformed how people around the world interact and has permanently impacted our lives in ways we never could have imagined, bitcoin -- the internet of money -- is fundamentally changing our approach to solving social, political, and economic problems through decentralized technology.

AMAZON BESTSELLER<br /><br />Version 3 - Completely revised and updated for the new Cisco exams:<br /><br />200-125 CCNA<br />100-105 ICND1<br />200-105 ICND2<br /><br />This book has been used by thousands of Cisco students to study for their CCNA exams. Written by a CCNP and three CCIEs it's all you need to pass the new style exams.<br /><br />FREE SUPPORT<br /><br />The book is supported for free so just come over and register your copy to get free access to over $400 worth of videos, exams, cram guides - https://www.in60days.com/free/ccnain60days/<br /><br />ABOUT THE BOOK<br /><br />Do any of the following problems sound familiar to you?<br /><br />“I just don’t know where to start studying. I feel overwhelmed by the information.”<br /><br />“I’ve bought all the CBT-style videos and books, and have even been on a course, but I don’t feel ready to take the exam and I don’t know if I ever will.”<br /><br />“I’ve been studying for a long time now, but I haven’t booked the exam yet because I just don’t feel ready.”<br /><br />For every ten students who start out towards the CCNA qualification, nine quit. They don't quit because of laziness but because they became overwhelmed with information and didn't even know where to start. They sat down to study from one of the 'big name' manuals and half an hour later found themselves staring blankly at the same page. Can you imagine how frustrating that feels?<br /><br />You see, most authors throw you in at the deep end and expect you to get on with it. They forget that you have a full-time job, a long journey back home, family commitments and any number of challenges going on in your life. The last thing you have time for is to write out a detailed study plan with plenty of review sessions.<br /><br />If only somebody could tell you what to study each day, every day. If only you could open your study guide and see which bit of theory to read, which lab to do and which exam to take. You could then get on with the task of studying and getting that exam nailed.<br /><br />This is where Cisco CCNA in 60 Days comes in. Written in response to feedback from thousands of students using my online CCNA in 60 days program, my classroom courses and my other online Cisco training websites this book is the final piece in the studying puzzle.<br /><br />HOW IT WORKS<br /><br />Every day you read your theory module, you review yesterdays lesson, do a lab and then answer some review questions.<br /><br />The next day you do the same until you reach the review sessions where you cement all your knowledge with more labs and review as well as some practice exams. If that wasn't enough, you have a cram guide to read daily and an online Subnetting review site to really hone your subnetting skills.<br /><br />At the 30 day mark you can take your CCENT exam and move into your ICND2 study sessions or just take your CCNA exam at the end of 60 days. If you fall behind no problem, just pick up where you left off.<br /><br />Having a problem with motivation and distractions? No problem, just read the detailed goal setting guide to turbo boost your productivity and motivation.<br /><br />WHAT'S COVERED?<br /><br />Every subject Cisco want you to know for your exams is covered with labs, theory, exams, reviews and crams. From RIP to OSPF, from VLSM to CIDR, IPv4 to IPv6, STP to CDP. Every exam topic is covered in detail many times over.<br /><br />Just when you think you are ready you are hit with challenge labs and more exams to ensure you are more than ready for the tricky Cisco exams. There are over 60 hand-on labs in total to help you build your configuration skills and confidence.<br /><br />ABOUT THE AUTHORS<br /><br />Paul Browning used to work at Cisco TAC but left in 2002 to start his own Cisco training company. He has authored several Cisco manuals as well as created one of the biggest online Cisco training websites used by many thousands of students.<br /><br />Farai Tafa is a dual CCIE who consults for large blue chip companies in the USA. He is an expert in network design and installation as well as an acknowledged expert in voice and security.<br /><br />Daniel Gheorghe is a CCIE in Routing and Switching. <br />
