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.

And more time passed, more water under the bridge, and more use of fivefinger shoes over the year.
Added seeya lace-ups and lontra to my collection of vibrams. The lontra adds a new level of goodness
to outdoor activities in VFFs. It's water resistent; means if you step in a puddle, or a stream that
is under ankle deep you don't get wet feet. Their only downside from my perspective is that they have
a fairly tight fit on the big toes, and they gave me blisters...
Boy, time does fly, and I didn't blog anything in a long time!
I just felt that I had to mention that I completed my first overnight tramp
(no, not loose woman, the hike variety) with a heavy back-pack on in my treks.
No problems, even on rugged terrain, with mud, tree roots, boulders, pebbles,
shingle, you name it ... my feet were happy, as were my knees, ankles, lower
back. Awesome experience; I guess if it gets colder I'll try the flows for...

In the last post I said they were fine in foul weather ... boy, was I wrong :}
The recent cold-snap, with temperatures just above freezing point, and wind-chills pushing it well below I felt compelled to seek an alternative to my current standard-footwear. So far into the -admittedly mild - winter my trusted KSOs have given me enough warmth, but no more; this morning I felt fairly unhappy, and my toes were complaining quite bitterly about the cold and the abuse I gave them. So I looked...
Wow ... time sure flies; it's been over seven months now
that I've been wearing VFFs almost exclusively! Had the odd
stint at actual barefoot running, to find that VFFs definitely
are more robust than the soles of my feet - had to peel shards
of glass out of my foot. Will refrain from running barefoot
in poor visibility conditions :}
I still swear by the vibrams, even in foul weather (cold & wet)
they're very acceptable. I use three models...

Today I wore my fivefingers for a ~ 12.5Km bush-walk. I was
initially a bit worried about stubbing toes, spraining ankles
and what have you ... nothing the like happened, even though
the terrain wasn't always easy. I did manage to lightly bump
my toes 3 times in the persuit, but didn't really do them any
harm - strangely enough. Going downhill on sharp rocks proved
a bit slower than I hoped for, but it was all good fun, and
when I've gotten more used to...
