Steve's Linux Tips
This is the place for small, cool, interesting or just noteworthy Linux-based tips.

I have written some books, all of which are available in Paperback and eBook formats. You can get my Shell Scripting Tutorial securely through Amazon as an 88-page Paperback or eBook; if you want more meat, my 564-page book Shell Scripting: Expert Recipes for Linux, Bash and more goes into more detail, with in-depth example code.
