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.

Facebook is an awkward place. Really, it is. It's a place where all the disparate facets of my life come together. Family, co-workers. Computers, grandmothers. Religion, science. Intelligence...well, I'll leave that one open to interpretation =)
Recently I got back in contact over facebook with a long lost friend from my childhood. As weeks went on, we commented on each other's posts, intrigued by the serious difference between the remembered friend and the new-found friend....
