TPOSANA BugHunt Announced!

"The Practice of System and Network Administration" (TPOSANA) is now 7 years old (with some chapters virtually unmodified since the first edition, 12 years ago). We are preparing to update the book and create a 3rd edition but we need your help!

We're looking for your input! Yes, you! Our valued readers!

We're re-reading all 1,100 pages to find parts that are obsolete or need updating but we need your help. We've decided to crowd-source this part of the project. You are probably a better judge of what is missing, obsolete, or needs updating. Pick a chapter, a page, or a section and file bugs against any issues you find. They can be specific errors ("Typo on page 123") or general ("Chapter 28 focuses on the old Solaris way; add the newer Linux way.")


  • Everyone that submits a valid bug that we choose to correct will be thanked in the next edition of the book.
  • Three lucky bug submitters will receive copies of the new edition when it comes out. They will be selected by quality and quantity of bugs.

Here's how to get started:

Start hunting today!
