Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Although life has forced me to neglect some of my projects recently, I have been able to put some more work into them in the past few weeks. I am confident that I will have more things to show by the end of the summer.
My first bit of progress this year was an easy but necessary update to Alexei: Part IX, which brings it up to version 1.2.8. Nothing really new in the release, just some code clean-up and other cosmetic fixes. Hopefully I will have more to show for my work soon....

Two years since the last Free Empires source release we finally are able to show the world some of the things we have been working on. Lamp Refugee is a project we started last May to help speed up the development of the Gambas Genie engine, the one that is going to be used for Free Empires. We released the first LR source release yesterday, and there are many new features to the engine compared to previous releases. These are notably map scrolling, building and unit construction, better resource...
It has been awhile since I have posted an update here. Anyway, Piga Software now has an account on Freshmeat and two of our finished applications have already been submitted and approved to be in its database. One is for PigaVision, and the other is for a graphical adventure game I first released in May.
I finished my first Linux program yesterday, and what is surprising to me is that it turned out to be a utility. It is a tv-out front-end interface for the XRandR and Xvattr applications. I hope to add some features which I scraped because of time restraints into a 2.0.0 release (Thinking about a release date of Christmas or New Years, but don't quote me on that). Version 1.0.1 still works as a basis for tv-out though, and should help new users get the most out of their video cards.
