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'd missed google very much, since the recent myDoom variant had taken it down this afternoon and was testing to see if it was back up by doing a search for something random. I'd done various ones throughout the course of today like" test", "hello", "hello google?", but this time I searched for "TEH GOOGLE". Not only was google back up (yay), but the first hit I got was a page from the google's website which was absolutely priceless:
That is scary. I got through the first and last paragraphs and that took several minutes. I'm still not sure what this is supposed to be: "1n+E9r1ty" .... integrity? I still find it funny as hell that it's a real page.
typing like that proves beyond doubt that you are a super hardcore visual basic scipt fugative hacker, and the government has you at the top of the super secret most wanted list for the billions of $$$ woro of damage you latest feidish virus caused... the virus that took mothes to write.. and is soo powerfull, so ingeniouse, then its never been detected by a virus scanning company.. or maybe, they know about it.. but dare not add it to there database because they fear you so much...
behold the virus... for its source code is.....
echo "echo you smell like poo" >> c:\autoexec.bat
echo "echo hit any key to admit that you smell like poo" >> c:\autoexec.bat
echo "pause" >> autoecec.bat
echo "echo hahaha, you admited it.. you smell like poo !" >> c:\autoexec.bat
Originally posted by koyi I know this sound dumb but would anyone bother to explain to me what does "1337" means?
I came across this "word" quite often recently....
And is that really a language?
What about "H4x0r"?
That's "leet-speak" (elite speak) which often replaces certain letters with numbers to sound like a complete retard. 1337 = elite, H4x0r = hacker. Typically used by the script kiddies to try sounding cool, but avoided by any self-respecting IT professional wishing to have a career outside flipping burgers.
