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 still got a ZX81, and an Atari 2600 (can't remember which is older). Do you know anywhere in the UK, that you can still buy the rubber membranes for the ZX81? Mines worn out at last after nearly 10 years without being replaced.
there is no reason for that crap. there is no problem with the way that the uk lives. i was there for three years and found no gripes with the english (a little hard to understand the scots but from what i understand they are the only ones to be able to decode that language.) lol no offense Nukes

The 2600 is much older than the ZX81. For that matter, the Atari 400 and 800 (1979) are too. I still have both a 400 and an 800 - plus a Super Pong (pre-2600), I also have a MOS KIM-1 (1975). These are all in storage back in Maine.
i have the old pong as well. maybe a 2600( i cant remember and its at my parents house) atari 400, intellivsion, commodore amiga, apple IIgs( signed edition)
i think thats all i have right now, im trying to start a collection. the 400 the intellivision, and the amiga i have the original boxes for. the amiga needs a monitor cable though, anyboby got one?
I have a telegame, made by Philco and Ford together. It's a very small videogame, made with wood and you have two buttons at the console which looks like those grandpas AM radio turner. On button controls the right team, the other one controls the left team. The game, indeed, is pong .
It's PAL-M color. 2 or 3 at the same time on screen I believe
Man, I guess this all beats my (fully functional) x8086 with a whopping 640K of Ram, a 20 meg harddrive (stackered to 70 megs). Its an old Commodore PC10-III, with a CGA screen...
A couple of years ago, I wanted to transfer my old university papers and my novel off of it (to back up to CD) and I used the 2400baud modem in the thing...(I had 2 phone lines) it took a couple of hours for a couple of megs of stuff...it was wild.
Originally posted by qnr Sorry, I had to get rid of all my Amiga gear when I moved. Still have my Atari STs and TTs.... It's easy to order the Amiga cables online though, if no one comes up with any for you.
youre right of course i know i can find some online i just havent got around to it yet cause im always so busy.
At right, It has three variations of gameplay. Futebol = Soccer, Tenis = Tennis and Paredao = Some sort of squach (or... how was it called, that tennis that you play against a wall... wall = parede in portuguese ).
At left (with those sliding switch buttons), you have "jogo = game", "treino = practice", "channel 3 or 4" (who does not remember in the old Atari 2600), "desliga = turn off" and "liga = turn on"
