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.

Yes, this is filed under "Existential Rants", but it's more of a general rant.
UFOs, aliens, "disclosure", gubmint conspiracies, etc...I can't stand it anymore!
My mother is utterly convinced that she's an "integral part" of some "spiritual mission" to "help the planet ascend"...yes...geniunely...no sh*t. On an almost daily basis I have to put up with her talking to friends over the phone about it all. It drives me...
...if it prevents you from going completely bat-sh*t insane?
I willfully avoid topics such as psychology and neuroscience. Why? Because if I actually studied them, they'd shred what last few bits of my worldview I desperately hold on to into tiny pieces. No, scratch that..they'd decimate them into proverbial subatomic particles.
Am I to be considered an "ignorant fool" because of this? Simply because I refuse to swallow the idea that nothing I do...
