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.

The Climax of Humanity
Demographically and economically, our era is unique in human history. Depending on how we manage the next few decades, we could usher in environmental sustainability--or collapse
By George Musser
Perhaps we need to keep the envrionment, oil and other similiar threads all in one place. All of these recent threads you've started are all pretty much leading to one big discussion about oil, environment, vegetarism, etc.
Originally posted by bushidozen Well, rvijay, with that said, is there anything that you plan to do (or would like others to do) to help preserve our way of life? Or are you looking forward to changes?
Personally for me, I am hoping for excellent breakthrus in Nanotechnology to help us out. I am also living as simple as possible, trying to make things from basics and use as little transportation as possible. The most important is mental preparation and awareness. This is still hard to achieve.

How exactly would nanotechnology help us? What is to keep someone from using that same technology as a weapon?
I too am trying to live a simple existence, however I still require my car as I live about 20 miles away from where I work (with no reliable public transportation), but I carpool with my roomate when possible.

I understand the difficulty of which you speak, which is why I meditate daily to try to increase both my mental preparation and awareness. It can be done with time.
Every place and every thing on every time on planet Earth is unique.
One thing that puzzles me is the "coincidence" of a sun and a moon with almost the same diameter. We have invented gods and goddesses because of this fact.
That, and the mere existence of life gets me wondering that there may be gods that are laughing at us because of the names we have put to them and everything and our theories too.
We all come from one source since the big bang and perhaps will be someday in the same state and will start again, who knows?
The problem now is that we need to reverse the ecological damage we have made on Earth. Sometimes I think that the modern way of life makes us miss experiences that fill the entire human spectrum and sometimes I wish I'd live on another age
what could be or had been named , were not Named
what could be or had been analyzed , were not Analyzed
the Climax ? go kite flying on the tallest cliff
or go wondering why rivers never stop flowing
even if people thought that they had found the Source and the End
you will never fall in love with anything anymore
thats the way ...
I agree with primo. Even with all of the advances in technology today, I long for a simpler time. I think that many of us have forgotten how to truly live life and have been caught up in societal demands. I feel that we are slowly losing our humanity.

Rather than getting us wired or making us more obsessed with consumerism, hopefully the new technology will make us more humane, appreciate and live life fully.
