1.1 Read (at least) these things (All The Words)

  1. Week 10 Notes HTML – this file – Read All The Words
  2. Delayed and Repeated Scheduled Execution - at, cron, and crontab
  3. Shell Scripts – lists of commands, executable scripts, script header, command arguments and positional parameters
  4. List of Commands You Should Know
  5. Linux and Sysadmin News in the World
  6. Video Tutorials on Lynda.com – tagged by week number

1.2 Assignments this week

Reminder: There are now two quizzes that you need to complete on Blackboard as part of your term Quiz mark. A third quiz will be posted before the Final Exam. The Quizzes are not optional.

Check the due date for each assignment and put a reminder in your agenda, calendar, and digital assistant. Just like in the Real World, not all due dates are on the same days or at the same times.

1.2.1 Worksheets

Worksheets are preparation for your assignments. You can’t do the assignments without having done the worksheets first.

Form a small study group to do the worksheets. Each person tries the example given, and you make sure you all get the same answers. Worksheets are not for hand-in; they are not worth marks; the assignments test your knowledge of the lectures and worksheets.

The worksheets are available in four formats: Open Office (ODT), PDF, HTML, and Text. Only the Open Office format allows you “fill in the blanks” in the worksheet. The PDF format looks good but doesn’t allow you to type into the blanks in the worksheet. The HTML format is crude but useful for quick for viewing online.

Do NOT open the Worksheet ODT files using any Microsoft products; they will mangle the format and mis-number the questions. Use the free Libre Office or Open Office programs to open these ODT documents. On campus, you can download Libre Office here.

Students with errors on their forms need to re-read the Test Instructions and then watch their email for directions on how and when to fix the name or version number on their mark-sense form. If you don’t fix your form, you don’t get your marks.

3.1 Fifteen minute rule

Your time as a student is valuable. See the Week 03 Notes HTML.

3.2 Commands

Keep a notebook with a List of Commands in it. - You need to write down yourself what each command does. - I will check for this list in your lab periods. - Check the updated list of commands each week.

3.3 Locked out

The CLS will lock out your IP address if you can’t type your own userid correctly.

If this happens, you have to follow the posted directions to have me unlock your IP address. You can change to another IP address. You can always come to school where no IP addresses are locked out.
