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've been clicking the random blog button in hopes that I will find an interesting article or linux related pondering that somebody has posted. However, more often than not, I come across questions that people are asking. Why ask technical linux questions in your blog? Is it a way of storing your question so you can look back on it later and research it? Or are people just testing out the blog system? Either way, I like knowing I have a blog here. It gives me a place to post interesting things that I come across or what I plan on doing.
Anybody using their blog for something interesting?
I think it's that people love to post questions and in the rush to do so don't actually look at where they are posting. If you do come across repeat offenders, hit the report button and they'll be cleaned up.
That's a bug I think, it looks as though I am having a strange argument on there, but some of the posts are me responding to other posts. If you look at the dates it appears that the posts were made in 1970...
The bigger problem is that there were no internet in 1970.
As for blogs they are nice when once in a year idea hits you and you just have to write it somewhere without creating wordpress account or starting http server. But writing something constantly (every day, for example) is not for me.
