Nothing new under the sun...

The web, so far, is semantically implemented exactly the same way as COBOL/3270 code, circa 1970. You have a dumb datastore, managed by bespoke code, talking to a semi-smart block mode terminal.

RHCE Cramming Cheat Sheet

This week I'm taking the RHCE Fast track course. I have some Linux experience, but I am basically winging it. Others on the course had taken Red Hat's advised course of taking the RHCT first, which substantially shares a lot of content. First two days they were moaning we were covering old ground.

The key is knowing the commands associated with each learning objectice, I think. As then its possible to lookup the man page if unsure about the syntax. This seems like a great cheatsheet, for that purpose, for cramming: version to view from my phone :P

Test is on Friday coming...
