As I said, I'm working on Linux Phrasebook, 2nd Edition.
I'm thinking of removing the chapter on Windows Networking & replacing it with a chapter on basic scripting.
So I'd take these commands out:
And I'd add a chapter that covers these:
* & some others
Does this sound cool? Does anyone still use or give a crap about the SMB/CIFS commands? I have to drop something if I want to add something, & I'd like to add a chapter on scripting, so it seemed OK to drop the chapter on Windows networking.
BTW - I'm dropping the chapter on printing & adding a new one on Manipulating Text Files (wc, nl, fmt, cut, paste, sort, uniq, diff, tr, sed, awk), which I think is a great trade off.
"Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime; there we must be saved by hope. Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; there we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we are saved by love. No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as it is from our own standpoint. Therefore we must be saved by the final form of love which is forgiveness."
