STN was founded by the end of 2010 in an effort to bring my encounters with Linux to a resource reachable by others either starting out or entering a higher level in their Linux career.
As I enjoy writing in bash, I decided the name for the site rather easily. Scripting is something that every system administrator should experience and learn to love for the possibilities it brings along.

Please feel free to contact me for any reason at all. I love to hear from anyone who loves linux and system administration as much as I do.

Note that this is my main destination for a lot of documentation on how I do a lot of what I do. This means that not every post will be long and detailed covering in-depth issues…actually most will be short and sweet ;P Feel free to leave comments or contact me for more info on anything.

I leave you with the “original opening” post I wrote when I started the site. Note that not everything on here has been tested specifically on Debian, as mentioned below.

I have established this site for the wealth of system administrators out there that love to explore, create, and discover new types of things they can do to their systems.

The purpose of this site is to provide everyone with some of the scripts, guides, and commands I have used in my journey through system administration throughout the past several years.

Every guide or script posted on this site has been tested by me on the Debian distribution (64-bit) and should work for you given you follow the instructions, have a pretty decent understanding of the Linux operating system (+ command line) and are willing to learn.

Thanks you for visiting and I hope you find what your looking for.

P.S: If you have some great material that you would like to contribute, please shoot me an email.
