Excellent articles. Just what I have been looking for.

I can’ get the first one though (Shell, terminal, console — the basics). Is there any reason? Or is it just me?

And it’s still 404ing, is this website dead or what? :)

Certainly not dead. Corrected already :)
Not sure what was wrong because the article was published — I guess it was one of those weird WordPress issues.
Anyway, it’s now available again under a new url:

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But think of if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely be one of the very best in its niche. Excellent blog!
