1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously this book bored me to tears, 17 July 2016
This review is from: Learning Python (Paperback)
Absolute rubbish to much waffle and not enough meat and potatoes.

Why do authors overcomplicate matters? Here is a idea write a book that introduces a project then gradually add more advanced features to it.

Seriously this book bored me to tears.... As a starter resource it is useless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tom Hardy is like watching paint dry nothing compared to the old skool ..., 10 Feb. 2016
How can people rate this 5 star? No plot line, no character dialogue just one big chase. Tom Hardy is like watching paint dry nothing compared to the old skool Mad Max films. I would rather dip my nuts in acid then sit through this crap again.......

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, the best football management game ever is Championship ..., 21 Dec. 2015
Overcomplicated, Boring, the best football management game ever is Championship Manager 01/02 with the latest updates. Football Manager in comparison has always been bloated. They should kick start and re-release the champ manager 01/02 source code update it properly :) that would be a killer project.

1.0 out of 5 stars Junk not worth the paper written on!, 16 Mar. 2015
Lacking doesn't teach you anything! Just gives you a summary / gloss of keywords for example filesystems it gives a brief summary of what the filesystems are i.e ext3 is good for keeping a journal. No where is there anything useful or productive such as how to create a partition or how to use tools such as fdisk or what is the best way to partition a hard disk. It is the same for every chapter take firewalls for example yes we are presented of a brief summary of what iptables is. But how the hell do you go about securing Debian? implementing firewall rules? opening specific ports for services? is any of this shown? no you get a brief couple of lines summary of what iptables is...... Best practices? :) you can find this information dong a two second Google search. Author take note and read the Centos 6 cookbook! that's how a technical book show be written! what you have published! is lacking, doesn't teach the end user anything! and doesn't show any examples of how to use the technology or tools in question I could write a better book than this! avoid like the plague and save your money absolutely useless......

5.0 out of 5 stars Here We Go Again :), 18 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Dark Souls II (PS3) (Video Game)
I am a Souls Veteran played the death out of both Demon Souls and Dark Souls and had fantastic times with both games. What can I say about Dark Souls 2 one word epic!

Now ignore the 1-2 star reviews this game is frustrating and is challenging but this is the Souls series you come to this series expecting your ass to be royally kicked. That is fundamentally what makes the Souls Series what it is!

You have to take your time with these games and learn each area is a learning curve, And when you finally conquer your foes there is no better gratifying feeling that this series produces.

Yes this game is tough yes this game with drive you mental! but this is the beauty! If you can't handle that or expect the devs to water down the game-play or add a noob / pussy mode it wont happen!

Everything about this game is spectacular the mysticism when you first enter the hub of the world the sense of anticipation of exploring the world and expecting the unexpected around each corner is immense.

I can myself easily playing the first play-through with 60+ hours

Loving it so far right up there with Demon Souls and Dark Souls can wait for the next true next gen title in the series :)


The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction
The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction
by William E. Shotts Jr.
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction, 13 Feb. 2014
New to Linux? Taking the plunge? Buy this book you will not regret it. Excellent introduction in plain English! Which gently introduces you to the command line and gradually builds up your confidence. I have read quite alot of books on Linux and the usual beginners books and manuals drone on and miss the point that the intended audience have zero Linux experience.
The author has done a fantastic job I especially enjoyed the chapter on BASH scripting finally a resource that explains it in plain English.

Please make future editions and add new stuff I'm sold :)


The Official Ubuntu Server Book
The Official Ubuntu Server Book
by Kyle Rankin
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 13 Feb. 2014
Didnt really enjoy this book at all I thought it was seriously lacking, Luckily I picked up a used copy. The main problem I have is the book just doesn't flow well and just as you are getting to the meat and potatoes of trying to configure something you are told to consult a man page? Tell us something we don't know. The services section I found to be really lacking you can find better documentation for free online.

Next version of the book make a cook book style approach with labs for beginners.

I didn't really learn a great deal from this the writing style is very dry.

Just my honest opinion I will be using the Ubuntu forum and community documentation for future reference

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Linux Bible (Paperback)
It's a big book :) very informative and approachable unlike the majority of Linux books out there you will not be bored to tears when reading this. Content is plenty and covers a diverse range of topics absolutely ideal if you are new to Linux and want to get hands on.

Please be advised though the book focuses more on the red hat derivatives

A fantastic resource Negus has done a good job! I will be buying future editions

If you want to learn more about administration and setting up securing server related stuff this book is awesome :)
