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.

ok, i have a satellite dish, its been snowing and the dish is covered, this has prevented the dish from reflecting into the reciever bit so im not getting any signal, i dont want to use a ladder as its very slippy outside and have no one to hold it at the moment(will have in a few hours), the outside tap/pipe is partially frozen so im not getting any pressure to the hosepipe can anyone suggest how i might get the snow off my dish so i can get tv again?
You don't just loose the signal with snow on the dish.
You might just have snow in the atmosphere, or even either very heavy rain or thick fog/mist can screw things up as well - though the snow problem happen's to be just about the biggest nuisance.
How about moving the dish lower down the wall, so you can give it a clout with a broom handle ? (or move to North Africa, they don't get much snow there ? and it would normally be a bloody sight warmer than Durham )
