Hi Daniel,

Great work with the video's, I like them. The only thing I still miss, 
is a logfile of all the commands and text you typed into the terminal 
and vi. So it is easy reproducible.

Maybe an idea for a next movie are small new introductions of more 
advanced packages with for example custom install scripts and a video 
about init.d scripts in packages of course all combined with a logfile 
of what you did in text form.

Keep up the good work, and thank you.

Kind regards,
