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.

View Poll Results: Are you male, female or not sure
Oh, come on. This is hardly a fair poll. You know that the majority of people that would bother to post on a poll are the regular posters, and you know that the majority of us are male, that said, it would be interesting to see how many people decide to opt for 'not sure'. He he.
Jeez, now that is really a weird way to put it. Most people would just say men or women since we are, like, humans, but maybe you are just being politically correct.
And thank you Tricky, for pointing out the girlie thing. Such a much nicer thing to say if someone was trying to talk to me. AT least it is better than "Well hello there, female. You remind of a traffic ticket... you got fine written all over you"
And for those wondering, I actually had some dork give that line to me this weekend. Well, not the female part, but the traffic line.
Really makes me wonder who comes up with these lines.
Well in fairness, a pickup line normally does not work, but there is an appropriate time to use them.
If the guy comes up and you two start talking about mutual interests, then jokingly saying one those stupid pick-up lines is more funny than obscene.
Most friends I know, including myself is not so apt to slap the guy or reject him then. This is because most gals like guys with a sense of humor, whether it be stupid or slapstick, or even obscene (in much rarer cases).
I cant believe I am giving dating advise to computer guys. Oh well... just doing my small part to help geeks get some
yeah i can see no harm when they make it obviously humorous. but the one mentioned above in my mind would never work. well at least if i was a girl. but i think at times if i ever was, i would be a very big tease, cause it would be so easy to do.
It is really easy to be a tease.... men are simply to easy to manipulate when they think sex is going to happen. Of course i dont put out like that, but I would use it to my advantage to ge them to buy me drinks.
But like I said in another post, I dont do that so much anymore. I started to realize that men do have feelings, and not every one of them should be treated like crap. I just needed to understand that most of them only care about sex and that is it.
But I can get in the mood to tease when I am at the right venue, or get a little alcohol in my system, but not drunk.
