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.

Imagine a CPU doing that? Even if the crystal were of the cheapest type, it can never be audible! Why does my precious turntable lag? For the inadvertent reader, the clock signal(s) frequency entering the CPU is governed by a feedback circuit controlled by a quartz crystal. A much complicated way of saying by the clock chip or chipset.
This is no fun. I'm listening to Liszt's first piano concerto and, all of a sudden, the pitch goes down. I had to stop the music. I think in the future I'll go back the audio CDs and leave these audio subtleties for the vinyl and tube amplifiers fans.
My belt drive is a Microseiki and the platter is HUGE. I don't know how many kilos or pounds it is. The belt should not be not too tight, or too loose, just right.
It still works with a loose belt as it has so much intertia, it just takes longer to get up to speed.
To fix a direct drive you will have to take apart the motor, and will probably have a taco tacho some where.
Well, thanks. I've just been told, in a music forum, that direct drives come in two styles: the ones whose angular frequency is locked by a quartz crystal and the ones which are not. It seems mine belongs to the latter category.
