Competition Winner for Ubuntu Kung Fu Book

Posted on in Categories Contest, News last updated December 4, 2008

Last week I decided to run a little competition to see your tips related to UNIX and Linux. A massive thank you to all that have participated.

There were total 185 entries. Many entries were nice and I really enjoyed reading all of them. But, there can only be 3 winners (randomly selected):

=> slappinjohn
=> Hunter Perrin
=> Michael

There were many other great entries and I recommend you to check them out in the comments section.

Next month I will announce another small competition. If any one is interested sponsoring or would like give away as a prize in a competition, please contact me.

  1. Hi All,

    Typing commands in a ssh session sometimes takes time to see
    the result. When you see a mistake, some shortcuts can help you
    edit that easily. These are some Keyboard shortcuts in shell
    and vi editor. Some of you may find this useful. [ Experienced
    users, juz ignore 🙂 ]

    Shell
    ====

    ctrl-a Move to beginning of line
    ctrl-e Move to end of line
    ctrl-k Erase the rest of line from the position of cursor
    ctrl-l Clear screen
    ctrl-r Incremental search backwards
    ctrl-u Erase entire line
    alt -d Delete the word following the cursor ( dot works as
    delimitter )
    alt-b move back word by word
    alt-f move forward word by word
