WhiteSpace Edition - Released
Ubuitous; non-printing Chars are everywhere. Sans doubt, they're important in helping us sort fields and records. As such, familiarity with these chars can prove quite useful and applicable in your computing journey. Have a glance at some of the salient non-printing chars in this release.
Whitespace - Non-printing Characters
ZFS Edition - Released
Extra extra, storage is cheap, storage is cheap. Spread the not-so-new 'news.' As such, we think horizontal scaling and management of commodity storage in-lieu of vertical, limited scaling. File systems and Volume managers have been extended and commoditized to handle rather inexpensivly, massive scales of storage. LVM and ZFS are examples of Volume Management frameworks that offer extremely scalable options once the domain of proprietary solutions. Spend some time on LVM and ZFS.
BSD13x Edition - Released
Look no further than MacOSX. It thrives because of BSD Unix. As does: iOS. So, that device you're likely holding is powered by BSD Unix. Light and Fast are irrefutable hallmarks of BSD Unix. It is embedded in so many applications that it is a must-know in your OS | Distro toolbox. Certainly Linux is supreme on many fronts, but, BSD is a mighty contender.
FreeBSD Unix Version 13x
ngx-regex Edition - Released
Regular Expressions (RegExes), as cryptic as they can appear, provide critical services in parsing information; particularly textual. Virtually every tool that handles text provides hooks to RegExes to simplify our ability to reduce result-sets to the essential bits. In this release, explore RegExes within the context of the NginX web service.
NginX RegEx Administration
ngx-rolling Edition - Released
We have grown accustomed to one-time-passwords in 2FA applications as a means to significantly improve the security of our digital services and lives. As such, it may be worth spending some time exploring such integrations in NginX to help provide such services to clients. In this release, we will generate ‘rolling’ one-time-codes that can be used to restrict access to content.

ngx-location Edition - Released
Request | Response. That is the ordinary flow of HTTP(s) communications. Embedded in each Request, is the Prefix of interest you would like the web server, in this case NginX, to consider. NginX searches for Locations that are ideal and processes the rule(s) therein, rendering fabulous HTML, even if error-bound. Locations map web space, to File System (FS), and other spaces. Spend a bit studying NginX Locations in this release.

dd Edition - Released
Of all the inavluable utilities, ‘dd’ ranks among the list of critical. Whenever the need arises to generate exact, bit-level copies of data, regardless of IO source, use ‘dd’ to accomplish your goals. Explore data duplication with ‘dd’. Use dd to image, mirror, compress, copy data as needed.
Data duplication with dd.
SymLinks Edition - Released
Symbolic links provide a variety of useful shortcut mechanisms in Nix-based environments. Examples include, but are not limited to: simple shortcuts, name reincarnations, cross-device file access, intra-device access, permissions circumvention, and reduced storage usage with hard links. Explore some use-cases.
