I guess I'm curious about the granularity of this course.  What sort of stuff 
are you guys doing?  Just bash(and builtins) or all of the other commands 
(stuff like awk, sed, cut, sort, etc) ?  And what sort of difficulty in 
scripts?  I realize that only 2 weeks in, you probably don't have an exact 
idea, but any info would be appreciated...
