    nice list but imho shouldn't be in the tut forum-- chit chat would be more appropriate buddy

    According to SecurityFocus.com's article "Turning Hacks into Hacker's" would these publishers be able to hack into my box, because they published these books, and received no compensation for it? I believe these links are a trick.

    It'd be real interesting if that bill gets passed....

    Excellent resource acid, couldn't see this one on your list but don't flame me if it's there: http://library.unixhideout.com/ - unfortunately the server isn't always up and you can have some problems logging in, but there's some great O'Reilly books amongst others archived there.

    Also, Xoom went bust years ago, so any links to members.xoom.com sites don't work.

    A bulleted list and/or some extra line breaks would make the links easier to scan, but apart from that (minor) niggle, an excellent reference resource.

    sumdumguy: I know what you mean about this not really being a tutorial, although it'd be a shame if it were to be overlooked by being posted in chit chat. The problem is, where do you post things like this? They're a great reference resource, but not really what you'd call a tutorial. And they're not just for newbies either, plus it's not a question! Perhaps a "AO member's favourite link listings" forum would be good for this type of thread, rather than having to submit all the links individually?

    Fakeboy: I don't think that publishers like O'Reilly are remotely interested in breaking into your computer. And they did receive compensation when they sold the books in the first place, they're giving them away free usually in the hope that you'll buy the latest edition or that you'll find reading online difficult and buy a paper copy instead. These links aren't a trick, and if you actually *read* some of the books you'd discover that this is the case and that the publishers aren't trying to break into your computer.

    i don't think chit chat would be the place for this type of info.. because there threads doesn't stay on top for long time.. they immediately go to the next page.. and then it goes out of the site of people... so i think this is the best place..

    very well done acd.. really a great post..

    What a list!!!
    I agree with intruder. Tutorial forum isn't a place I would look for a list of links.
    Maybe AO should have it's own Library :-)

    Thanks acid! That one must have taken you some time to compile.

    Great list, ac1d !
    As a link-whore, I snarfed the lot of them, and have already put them to good use, although I
    won't be showing my wife anytime soon, as she's the same way, and will be using my 'puter
    half the time just to grab URL's. Thumbs up, dude!
    As for where to put them, it's kind of an interesting point. There should be a members link area,
    but I'd hate to be the one sifting through a whole bunch of listings just to find duplicates. IMO,
    where you put them is just fine with me.
