Nagios is a great tool for server monitoring, providing rich environment to setup different notifications and monitoring scenarios.
It supports hosts and notification service grouping, comes with a GUI out-of-the-box and has really great community and lots of documentation online.
Pretty much all the setup can be done, based on the google’s top search results. Nice place to start is Digital Ocean post about setting up Nagios on Ubuntu 14.04. There is also another nice post, explaining how configuration is done.
If you fail to install package, or your server is different from Ubuntu, f.e, you run some Debian Stable server, you can address this post (RU) and build Nagios from source.
Configuring client can be done via this post, but check_nrpe command available only on server, not on the client.
This is a book about finding your mission. In this book not only author introduced a framework for dealing with mission-follow-your-passion-work-has-to-bring-pleasure problem, but he also wrote how he applied the advices, he came up with during the research, for himself.

So reading was basically designed to save people from making mistakes someone had already made, to save people from going down the paths, which are already explored.

Reading can help you to form habit of completion, which is extremely important, because conscientiousness, associated with completion by definition, is the best predictor of many important human outcomes, including mortality, longevity, educational attainment, and a host of criteria related to career success, or at least so stated in «Organized mind».
Statistical measures of performance can be really confusing sometimes, especially when explained in terms of sickness. So I came up with a Google Spreadsheet which shows example of standard statistical measures of performance and bayesian probabilities.
There is now way to be taught to be data scientist, but you can learn how to become one yourself. There is no right way, but there is a way, which was adopted by a number of data scientists and it goes through online courses (MOOC). Following suggested order is not required, but might be helpful.

Если в двух словах, то мотивации нет. Более известна длинная версия Артемия Лебедева: «Не хотите ничего делать — ради бога, оставайтесь в жопе».
