Random A+ stuff

In about 3 days I’ve crammed some 40 hours of video, taking notes, then studying them. Oh and then immediately take the exam of course.

What also is going to be a recurring theme the coming weeks, just like transferring data to a new workstation, is some snippets and hopefully cool stuff from a Udemy Linux essentials training I took.

Linux cloning with Clonezilla Live

After this walk-through which made my elementary OS installation unstable for a bit, I went searching for a more reliable way to clone a disk in Linux. The answer is Clonezilla.

Linux Certifications

Okay. Linux certifications. I want to get Linux certified. Last January I took an online Linux essentials training that I liked, but it is not from a specific path. I’ve already seen a few certifications but which is best? Which to choose? I think training sites will help me because I haven’t been much of…
