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.

Man, the Major is hot. And the Tachikomas are so damn cute. In listening, it seems to me that the same voice actresses are used in Dungeon and Dragons Online game for the mining Kobalds in the pirate-themed area. And because of this, the spunky Kobalds are also so damn cute. "Who da Kobald!" "Don't mess with the union!"
The image looks a bit like the Puppetmaster from the film.
ehawk: Not bad, but also wrong. You were on the right path though.
Ghost in the Shell is written by Masamune Shirow. The images on my screen are from the anime "Appleseed Ex Machina", sequel to "Appleseed", based on the manga Appleseed also written by Masamune Shirow
You also nailed though where I got my domain name from
Which of the voice actors for Motoko would that be in the DnD Online game?
Apparently there are four, though I'm only aware of Mimi Woods in the original movie and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn for SAC, but none of those are listed as voice actor in the above game http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/...toko-Kusanagi/
there's not much on the website, hence I have that index page there. just have it because I wanted that domain But use some directories for images as above (but that's a bit OT)
On a side note: the OST to all GitS works are amazing, especially Kenji Kawai's music to the first two movies. Just wow
Regarding domain name, I also have
sec9.eu, which I use as domain shortener Only short one available though with a fairly good TLD :|
All my Linux machines, physical or virtual, are named S9-$designation as well.
I never quite understood the appeal of a tiling window manager…I suppose the typically claimed advantage is that it allows better usage of screen real estate, but what if you're on a small display to begin with? Having window contents crammed into the corners of the screen just doesn't seem appealing to me. :-\
Don't get me wrong, it does make things look neat and tidy, but I dunno…to me it would just feel too "smooshy", I guess.
Oh, that, and I've been raised on Windows at home and Mac OS at school (I kinda discovered Linux "by accident" ), so stacking/"floating" window management has kinda always been the norm for me.

Reason: Mac OS in general, not just OS X
