    I have just started on the Linux+ and so far......I really like it.

    I have got the 6 Months Pluralsight activation so I am just going through those. I also have a couple of Udemy courses. Its still very new at the moment but I am enjoying it. I am away for almost 3 weeks end of Jan but I do have a 28 Hour flight so that will help me get through some videos :)

    It's on my task of things to do this year, like you I have a Pluralsight sub and with me being away for Feb in Thailand it's going to give me some time to study (VCAP first tho).

    Just in case people are thinking that my Thailand trip is a jolly, I am actually off to a 28 Day Fitness retreat, PT during the day and studying during the night.

    I'd like to get it done. I've been messing with Linux years but never got certified in it. Would be a good place to start.

    Thanks for the clarification. That squashes all rumors.

    That is the problem I have. Off to New Zealand in 2 weeks for 2.5 Weeks to see the in laws so doubt very much I will have time for studying. We get back the 16th of Feb so I may just make a start the first weekend we are back. Pluralsight training has been OK, finding it a bit of a struggle going through all the command line commands.

    Mine will certainly be a jolly mate. Though 28 days of Fitness and Study, couldn't choose a better place than Thailand could you?

    No I couldn't, although my wife certainly wasn't amused when I first told her :gun:

    Silly thing was she told me to go for a weightloss retreat, I did my due diligence and discovered it was cheaper to do a month in Thailand than 2 weeks back here in the UK, Winner :bender:

    Very well played Sir :D
    The only problem I would have with Thailand is that I love food (Hence why I am living at the Gym at the moment. I weighed myself the other day and came in at 15St. To say I was shocked was an understatement. Down to 14.5 at the moment).

    And I would see myself putting on more weight than losing it ha ha

    My friend, I weigh in at a shockingly heavy 133Kg (nearly 21 stone). I used to be closer to 14 stone so needless to say I am also a foodie (a fat foodie). Stress and anxiety will do that to you tho, so hoping the fresh start will help in reducing my weight and improve my sleep patterns.

    Being honest with you, I would point work in the direction of http://www.linuxacademy.com and get a subscription there, it's either monthly, quarterly or yearly subs (I paid for a year btw) and they are constantly evolving courses and content. They just announced yesterday a new mobile app (IOS release first then Android in Q2) for on/offline viewing.

    They not only offer training on Linux+ but also AWS, OpenStack and various DevOps material (I should add that they also do LPIC, RHCSA as well as Linux Foundation certification).

    As a Windows guy I am really impressed with LA and would definitely recommend them.

    They also do commercial memberships but I don't know much about that.
