I created BASHWORKZ.COM as a personal blog site, a knowledgebase site, and a Guide for other Linux Administrators to share hints and tips, simple commands (its only simple if you know it exists…), tools and utilities for a variety of functions, available to everyone who comes here. Whether you are a beginner or at advanced levels, there is always something you have no idea how to do. Everyone in their various job roles gets exposed to different environments which require different skills as a System Administrator.

      February 18, 2017

      If you have ever studied anything about finances, you know that your biggest monthly expense is going to be housing no matter what your budget is. It is why a couple of friends of decided to move back in with their parents after college. I’m married, and neither of us would want that! We work, and we budget. We both drive used cars that look new, and we found apartments for rent in Cambridge MA that are extremely nice and affordable for us as a married couple.We decided early on to forego getting the latest new gadgets as soon as they come out, and we choose to not go for the new car loans or leases keeping our used cars instead.
