We officially launched the Mantar Discussion Board yesterday. It’s a forum that the Network Services crew at iTeam will be posting tech-tips and howtos on from their work with *nix and Windows support…and anything else the eclectic crew has to say about tech and life.
We’re hoping to document all of our procedures for Network Service there for internal use, but there will be tons of help there for the public as well.
Oh, by the way, if you are wondering what Mantar means. It’s a nerdy combination of two words that happened to come up during a giddy training session. Tar is a linux command that is used to put a bunch of files and directories into one file…for the non-techies, it’s kind of like a zip file. Also in linux, to open the manual on something you use the command “man.” So to open a manual for the “tar” command you would type “man tar.”
I know it sounds really nerdy, but that’s what happens when you put a bunch of tech guys in the same room for few days – they’ll nickname each other Mantar.
