Every now and then I like to remind y'all about the Unix and Linux consultants list we maintain here. It's absolutely free to list yourself here if you are offering any Unixish services, including building websites on Unix/Linux/Mac OSX, programming in any of those, offering consulting, etc. Just send me the information requested at Find a Consultant and I will add your listing.

AIX Survival Guide  
- Most reviewers have spoken very highly of this book. I hate to be the wet blanket, but I didn't think it was quite that good.

It's not a bad book, at all. I have to learn a bit about AIX for one of my clients, and I will say that this certainly gives me a head start on the curve. But I just had some bad feelings about some of the more general advice given (like the author's habit of adding SCSI devices on a running system or shutting down by simply "sync;sync" and powering off) to make me feel a little uncomfortable about the whole book. -
