I attended Akron Linux User Group today as Ed Smeltz was about to deliver his talk titled “How to speed up your bash scripts”.

I got a chance to speak to him about his voluminous book and learned that he has come up with quite a human to script table of contents in his new book titled “High Performance Linux Shell Programming Reference 2015 Edition”.
The book is available to buy at booklocker.com here: http://booklocker.com/books/7831.html
I uploaded all the videos from the night and added them to a playlist found here:
Individual videos I link below for convenience:
I promised Ed that I will share knowledge of his book with others.
I did so on reddit’s bash sub-reddit here:
As well as on #bash channel on irc.
Today I went to Akron Linux Users Group’s formal meeting where Ken Dorsey presented a talk on basic introduction into Software Defined Radio.
Here’s meeting details from meetup (http://www.meetup.com/Akron-Linux-Users-Group/events/107527822/) :
Ken Dorsey will present a basic introduction into Software Defined Radio, the hardware and software available and how to start experimenting with software defined radio using a cheap $20 USB stick. He will demonstrate using a Raspberry Pi as a software defined radio system that will receive from .5 MHz – 1800 MHz for under $100. This is also relevant for HAMs, Raspberry PI/embedded geeks and electronic hobbyists. He plans to demonstrate using a Raspberry Pi as a software defined radio system that will receive from .5 MHz – 1800 MHz for under $100.
