Maintenance of Systems Administration for Cyborgs


The Systems Administration for Cyborgs attempts to present information regarding the practice and strategy of systems administration that is of general interest to developers, junior systems administrators, and other technical audiences who are less familiar with systems administration. While this core content and approach will remain over time, technology changes, and administrators are always developing new conventions and approaches to new and old problems.

In an effort to keep Systems Administration for Cyborgs up to date and relevant to the problems of the day, the author and contributors will continue to update the text to reflect changes in practice and to remove inaccuracies and errors as possible.
