Media praise for BSD Hacks

"'BSD Hacks' is the first book that is almost solely focused on hacks for sysadmins, without boring you with the details for basic operating system installation and configuration that has been so well documented elsewhere. BSD Hacks is not just for sysadmins, though. Intermediate and advanced BSD users will also find the book an excellent tool...With 100 listed hacks, multiplied by an impressive level of detailed angles for each, Dru provides an array that demands the placement of this book right in your server room, not in a pile of 'must-read-at-some-distant-point-in-the-future' texts...Whether you're a sysadmin managing hundreds of servers, or a power user ready to go beyond the obvious, BSD Hacks belongs next to your CRT."

"Dru Lavigne's 'BSD Hacks' is an enormously useful resource for systems administrators and end-users alike...No single book or site that provides the depth and breadth that Dru provides. It's a project that no one individual is capable of doing. Dru managed to tap into the thoughts of dozens of developers and sysadmins around the world, greatly enhancing the variety of hacks in this book. Whether you're a sysadmin managing hundreds of servers, or a power user ready to go beyond the obvious, 'BSD Hacks' belongs next to your CRT. Spend a weekend working through this book. You won't regret it."
