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.

Photorec is part of Testdisk and versions are available for both Linux and Windows. It is an incredible powerful tool for recovering lost files when you accidentally format over a partition or an entire drive. This tutorial will walk through the process of using Photorec to recover data from a mistakenly formatted drive....
Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn. I never wanted it but now Social networking sites are a part of my everyday computing. Yoono is something I've found that helps tame the beast, and puts everything under one roof. Works great under Linux, but note, it's free but not Opensource. The business model is advertising based, so expect to see some ads within the interface.
I had previously ran into an issue where the crontab did not open the file to edit due an issue with the default editor path. This can be checked by just trying to open the vi editor from the prompt. If you run into issues in opening a file using 'vi', then crontab -e will not work.
Here is a different case, where 'crontab -e' throws a number back to the screen and does nothing. Example:
