iPod and WordPress coolness in one day.

I came across an awesome HOWTO on getting linux and games on your iPod. Now if I just had a color screen iPod (I have gen 2).

On another note, WordPress.com now offers “VIP Hosting” which would be a great option for a few projects I am working on. Great job Automattic!

unix/linux certification.

I have finally reached the point in my career where I need certification. Back in the Mac OS 7-9 days there was no certification programs for us Mac geeks, but now we face job competition with all the UNIX geeks too. Apple now offers certification, but after taking a class on Mac OS X Server for 5 days, I left feeling pretty let down. I know how to add users, and I am pretty comfortable to all the services. What I needed was something more in-depth. That was 3 years ago. Now I am working to get my “Linux/Unix System Administration Certificate” from O’Reilly/the University of Illinois. As technical as I am, I was not sure how much I would like taking classes via the web, but the more time I put in, the more I enjoy it.

O’Reilly and the U of I offer a few certifications that I would recommend anyone who like me, has the skills, but no certification to “prove” it.
