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.

Downlloaded some pdf files, but wanted to access them from the local server. Did not want to edit several hundred lines into an html file so I create a batch file. Then the job was done in seconds rather than hours. Learned a bit more about sed in the process.
# turn a pdf list into a usable http file for a web server.
ls *.pdf > pdflist
cut -d "." -f1 pdflist > descripts
sed -i -e 's/^/<a href=\"/' pdflist
sed -i 's/$/\"\>/'...
Have not made an entry in a long time. Accidently killed my pogoplug and my beaglebone black. I will probably find a fix eventually for the both of them. Still have my arch PII box, but I need to update it.
Think I have made a zillon ota foil based tv antennas. The foil antennas do not get all the channels, you almst have to have a good metal antenna to complement a foil antenna.
Tried to redo the arch linux for my pogoplug. for some reason the batch file to do the image creation foobarred the boot of the hd on my host system. Thank god I can at least still get at my data. Have a spare drive that I may just do a clean install. then I will move the data over.One of the few times in twenty some odd years linux has ever really screwed up. Using a different machine for the time being. will not run that script on it.
