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.

nope, It was officially over when I posted the thread.
Christmas day is the same as any other day i.e. 24 hours long. And I'd like to point out that as WE invented time and latitudes and shit like that, I've only got to drive about 15 miles along the coast road and I'd be sitting on top of zero degree's i.e. the greenwich meridian.
So anyone further east has already finished crimbo, and all you lot west are playing catch up.
Besides, even during christmas day, it's still 364 shopping days till christmas (just to be petty).
Well Nick, that just gives you the extra day to make sure that you've done all the crimbo shopping stuff
Mind you, I've just finished my first "post crimbo milk run" (as in the milk that I deliver in my truck - usually about 26 or so tonnes at a time - and believe it or not, they're putting out the easter egg displays already)
This really annoys me, Christmas decs up on September and Easter Eggs in December. Yes, I know that the shops want our money (and have to have it to survive) but anyone who buys eggs now is going to have unhappy recipients in March/April - chocolate tastes horrible after that long a time.
And retailers wonder why we think they are cynical.
