Unix Mages

Unix Mages started in the summer of 2005 with the purpose of teaching Unix and Linux by using stories of wizards, mages, magic, and spells.

The biggest part of this site was the book, Unix For the Beginning Mage. It received rave reviews and is still frequently downloaded. It has been used by people of all ages for, both, personal use and as official classroom material.

A print edition of the book used to exist, but in 2008 I received a notice from Lulu Publishing that the master PDF was, for some reason, no longer in a printable format.

A few other stories were also created:

Unfortunately, it's highly unlikely any new material will be created. To this day, I still have no idea where I came up with the ideas or creativity for these stories.
