Trend Micro Has $10k For Your Video!

Are you handy with a video camera and have a great Internet safety story to share?  Trend Micro wants to hear it.

The security vendor today launched the "What’s Your Story?" campaign, and is calling everyone in the US and Canada over the age of 13 to submit their videos on Internet safety.  The campaign, which is sponsored and supported by the Trend Micro Internet Safety for Kids & Families initiative and its partners, is designed to help parents, teachers and youth become more aware of Internet safety issues so young people can be smart and safe when it comes to using the Internet.

Trend Micro is enabling kids, parents and educators to be smart about Internet safety through employee volunteerism, partnerships with organizations who share the same mission, and supporting causes that promote the Internet safety of kids around the world.

"When Trend Micro first launched Internet Safety for Kids & Families in 2008, we made a commitment to providing quality, practical information to those who have a stake in keeping young people safe on the Internet," said Lynette Owens, director of corporate outreach for Trend Micro. "We hope the "What’s Your Story?" campaign will be a fun, meaningful, and relevant way for people to share their creative sides, and promote Internet safety at the same time."

Advanced Bash Scripting Guide 6.2

If you are an infrequent ‘nix head like me, can still cobble up complex batch files from scratch, but just can’t remember stupid bash commands, here is a treat for you.  FREE!  I like free.

The Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is both a reference and a tutorial on shell scripting.  This comprehensive book (equivalent to 974 printed pages) covers almost every aspect of shell scripting.  It contains 364 profusely commented illustrative examples, a number of tables, and a cross-linked index/glossary.  Not just a shell scripting tutorial, this book also provides an introduction to basic programming techniques, such as sorting and recursion.  It is well suited for either individual study or classroom use.  It covers Bash, up to and including version 4.0.


This release features a minor reorganization of the material.  The “Indirect References” subsection is broken out as a separate chapter.  Two sections of the “Variables Revisited” chapter are now in a stand-alone chapter.  There is also the usual round of bugfixes and stylistic changes.
