    I used to be like that with beer, opening another one before finishing the last one.

    Updating my MSCE so I guess I'm just waiting for the MSpress book to arrive. Sure isn't a wish though.

    Anonymous got lucky. When five of its hackers attacked security company HBGary Federal on February 6, 2011, they were doing so in order to defend the group’s privacy. It wasn’t because they hoped to reveal plans to attack WikiLeaks, create surveillance cells targeting pro-union organizations, and sell sophisticated rootkits to the US government for use as offensive cyber weapons—but that’s what they found.

    In the weeks after the attack, the hackers released tens of thousands of e-mail messages and made headlines around the world. Aaron Bar, the CEO of HBGary Federal, eventually resigned; 12 Congressman called for an investigation; an ethics complaint was lodged against a major DC law firm involved with some of the more dubious plans.

    Join Ars' editors as they dig into the secret world of Anonymous and hackers for hire in Unmasked.
    This looks really interesting. Anyone read it yet?

    I have to admit, I've had this on my wishlist for a while, as well: Zero Day: A Novel.

    On the one hand, it looks to be another attempt to make hacking into an Ocean's 11 style heist, in the flavor of Tom Clancy style political intrigue. On the other, it's written by Mark Russinovich. I might pick it up sometime soon, just to sate my curiosity.

    I only got a few chapters in, but what I read up to that point seemed like common sense. I plan to pick it back up again in the future. Was a pretty easy read.

    I've read the following books this year:
    Absolute C++ - Great, great, great book for anyone looking to learn C++ from scratch. I went through several other books trying to find a good intro book and this one is absolutely it. I'm trying to get ready for a C++ Data Structures class and I took Java I & II about 7 years ago, so I don't remember a thing.

    Network Flow Analysis - About 65% done with this. I'm finally starting down the path of non-cert oriented books about Networking. More looking towards how to be a good network admin rather than how to be good at configuring the gear. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.

    Squid Proxy Server 3.1 Beginner's Guide - I was looking to set up a squid proxy server for testing and this book fit the bill nicely. Straight to the point, no nonsense type of book. If you're looking to get squid up and running and implement "X" feature, this is a good starting point.

    Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunches - This was my "I learned some Powershell a few years ago and let it atrophy so I need to get back in the game" book. Great book for learning the hows and whys of PowerShell.

    As you can see, I jump around a lot on my technologies. Going forward, I want to stay focused on learning *nix and networking.

    So my current wish list is something like this:
    Unix & Linux System Administration Handbook
    Essential System Administration
    I'm not really looking to be a *nix Admin, but I want to be competent enough to deploy services in support of daily network admin duties. I guess I could pick up a Linux+ book as well, but this book comes highly rated on amazon.

    Mastering VMWare 4
    Essential SNMP
    Practical Packet Analysis

    Funny thing about that. I have the 1st Edition of Absolute C++ on my bookshelf as well as Problem Solving With C++, (mine's the fourth edition.) Both are from an intro to programming class I took about ten years ago.

    I can recommend Problem Solving With C++ to anyone first starting out that wants a 'gentler' intro, but Absolute C++ is definitely worth every penny if you're really wanting to dig your teeth into coding and move on to data structures & algorithms. I'd say it's been second only to the C++ Primer Plus, in my journey through C++ books so far.

    The 6th edition of Windows Internals is coming out: Windows Internals 6th Edition: Part 1
    I've been expecting this for a few months now and publication got pushed back a few times. I'm not certain there will be much new information but I'm going to make a point of going over the stuff on the networking stack. Excited to see if things like branch cache have been added.

    But I will warn people it's a two part deal. I/O and other important components are going to be covered in part two.

    Books, I currently own and haven't had time to completely read (dang Cisco 9.99 ebook deals):

    Storage Networks Explained: http://www.amazon.com/Storage-Networks-Explained-Application-ebook/dp/B005UQCZ5W/ref=sr_1_4?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1333647973&sr=1-4

    Amazon.com: Deploying OpenStack (9781449311056): Ken Pepple: Books

    Smashwords — SSH Mastery: OpenSSH, PuTTY, Tunnels and Keys — A book by Michael W Lucas

    Amazon.com: Classic Shell Scripting: Hidden Commands that Unlock the Power of Unix eBook: Arnold Robbins, Nelson H. F. Beebe: Kindle Store

    Amazon.com: Foundations of IT Service Management with ITIL 2011 eBook: Brady Orand, Julie Villarreal: Kindle Store

    Amazon.com: Cloud Computing: Automating the Virtualized Data Center (Networking Technology) (9781587204340): Venkata Josyula, Malcolm Orr, Greg Page: Books

    Amazon.com: Cisco Firewalls (Networking Technology: Security) (9781587141096): Alexandre M.S.P. Moraes: Books


    My main focus currently is

    with a supplement of
    Amazon.com: Hands-on Guide to the Red Hat® Exams: RHCSA™ and RHCE® Cert Guide and Lab Manual (Certification Guide) eBook: Damian Tommasino: Kindle Store


    and my future list is way too long to post here. It spans the gamut, from Thor's Microsoft Security Bible and the boot Robert mentioned above, to IBM Redbooks on SANs, and finer detailed Red Hat guides like Security-Enhanced Linux . Although I must admit the Red Hat books will get more attention for the time being.

    Have a look here and see if you can't find it in a local public library.

    I guess this must be the abridged version:

    That is one of the books I want to open after I finish the CCNA, but only after, because if I start opening the book I'm sure I'll get distracted

    That's the way I am. I'm trying hard to get to the point where I can just read a book on something without trying to fully master it. That way I at least know what is possible with a technology, even if I must go back and get details about how to accomplish it. I at least finish the book and end up increasing my skill level over time.

    Default Wish List

    Being a relative newb to the Cisco world, I have done HelpDesk/Desktop Support for almost 20 years though, these are next up on my list. I basically screwed off the first 18 years of my career, and now I am definitely paying for it.
