Short and Sweet *nix tips from nixCraft

Apr 6th, 2009 Posted in Sharing What Have I Learned | No Comments »

Wandering out on the web in search of apache python information and found a sweet site with some quick tips for all things *nix from nixCraft. I found what I needed on configuring Apache2 with mod_python (and you’ll be hearing all about it at our April 19th meeting), plus so much more. If the sampling below doesn’t inspire you to add the nixCraft FAQ to your RSS reader of choice, me and my minions are coming to your house and taking all your penguins away.

As a total newb to the Chix, and indeed, to Linux itself, I admit to being scared pantsless yesterday as I parked my car behind Buster’s Coffee Shop.  Everyone is going to be smarter than me!  I won’t have anything to contribute!  Am I nuts?  No one is going to want to talk to me about Linux.

Well, everyone was smarter than me, but cheese! they were more than willing to talk to me about Linux (and much more).  The Chix immediately made me welcome, and proceeded to enlighten, involve, and delight me with ideas, concepts, programs, and vocabulary words that had me making mental notes like mad for a late-night Wikipedia session.  Could anything be better for a new student of Linux and programming?

Thanks, Chixes and Menfolk, for making my first meeting a tweet experience!
