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.

I've made a lot of improvements to Pyplate. New posts can now be saved to a drafts folder before they are published, and they can also be previewed while in the draft area.
I've added a page to the UI where you can export and import the database to XML files. This makes it easier to display the database in a human readable form. You can edit the XML files and re-import them to make changes to the database.
Pyplate.com has been on line for almost a week now, and I've had a good response. Several people have used the beta version of Pyplate to build simple web sites. One or two installation issues have come up, so I've updated the installation script.
I've also written a new installation script for anyone who wants to use Pyplate with Nginx. See www.pyplate.com/install-pyplate for more information. I've only published this today, so I'm still looking for beta testers.

I've tested Pyplate on a Raspberry Pi and a PC with Apache. I'll be doing testing with Nginx shortly.
I've spent the last month and a half re-writing my CMS to include an SQLite database, and I've made a lot of progress with the backend. I've done a lot of testing and it seems pretty stable. The new version is now running on Raspberry Web Server.
I've updated the theme as well, so press shift F5 if you're still seeing the old theme.
I've also been setting up a new web site dedicated to the CMS. The server's up and running, and I've sketched out the structure of...
I've taken a break from working on my Raspberry Pi site because I've been spending time developing the Python CMS that I wrote to power the site. Meta data about each post is now stored in an SQLite database. The content is still stored in files separate from the database.
I've also extended the backend to include a UI a little bit like Wordpress. It's now possible to upload themes and switch to them in the admin area. The admin area now has pages for managing the cache, adding...
