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.

AOL only owns RR. RoadRunner is still basically a part of TimeWarner. But that's another topic.
I like your site, plain and simple usually are the best. Its not cluttered and messy like some sites. It's straight to the point. Though a good logo/graphic for the site you can't beat ever.
I've been working on my personal site at www.jabentley.com
My linux section I am working on is mainly for Slackware help, tutorials and stuff.. you'll find broken links right now, but it should all be good sooner or later..
For those who read Tricky's website post about the guy who dented his car, I got a great story for you.
A few years back I was walking to my car from a Walmart, when 3 boys pulled into the the spot next to mine. They seemed nice, allowing me to get into my car before they got out. Next thing I know, the one boy slammed his door into my drivers door!
Now this was when I was not so nice and sweet. I rolled my window down and asked what he did that for. There were many witnesses to this event, so I wasnt really scared to start an issue. The kid who slammed my door simply said "Sorry, maybe you should not be driving and stay in the kitchen."
I smirked at him and said " Yeah, maybe".. and I then pulled my door in, and then swung it out as hard as I could, putting a huge crease into what turned out to be his daddys car door. Yeah, mine got banged, but I was selling the thing anyway.
Just as I pulled out and they were freaking out, I rolled down my other window and said "Then again, maybe not" and drove off.
A$$holes. Some people really need to learn a little respect.
Next time I'm just going to be a real a**hole myself, ask for some insurance, never intend to get it fixed but collect a nice check from their insurance company. And if they have no insurance or give me crap about it, I'm gonna ding my door into theirs so it makes it even.
I hate when ppl do it, espacially when you are not there and they did the harm to your vehicle, that happened to me, I went with my girlfriend for a vacation in Cape Cod, and we stopped by a shopping mall in Maryland - I don't even know the name of the township we stopped by - so upon our return from a supermarket I see my drivers side mirror is on the floor shuttered and there is a huge dent from bumper to bumper on my drivers side, there was an empty spot on the left side, so nobody - I didn't remember what kind of car was standing by me when I parked, and nobody left any notices that they accidentially f...'ed up my car and here is the phone number, so I called the police they made a report, my insurance refused to cover damage - the luxury having of basic liability, no other party envolced and I had to fix it myself. And I would say motherfsckers
Originally posted by Stephanie Yeah, I was pretty nasty. I usually dont get that mean, but his comment just did him in. And like I said, I was alot more of a b!tch than now
I like you, I like your style. It's challenging for guys to guess what's the next nasty move you gonna make. I like girls to be abit more attentive & energetic, however, I am just belong to the shy side.
