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.

He is way over protective tho, I can't hug anyone or he will drive us a part with his snout, and if you ignore it he starts to show his teeth and after that doesn't work he starts to nip at the other person...
Our household has 2 rabbits, one boa constrictor, and a few dozen rats. My snake is my main pet, and the rats are both pets and snake-food. The rabbits are more my roommates than mine (her idea at least).
I have many cats, I think about 7, but 4 ran away (not completely, they come by rarely, I think they went to bayou to hunt rats, I see 2 of them there once in a while, I've invited them back and fed them good cat food, but they seem to prefer the bayou, oh well they seem in good health so I'll leave them alone). So currently 3 cats that still eat cat food from us, 2 of which live in the garage and 1 outdoors.
I also have 1 dog, he has the mind of a puppy and is insane, doesn't bite tho, we taught him early not to bite. I don't really like him tho, he needs sedatives I think to calm him down. He isn't very bright either, although he gets a walk about every day or so, he has always wanted to run away and feel free. Well, he did at one point run away, and we found him cowering, wet, cold in someone's back yard. He was very happy to be returned to his usual premises, and he now is afraid of running away. Really, you can leave the backyard wide open, he won't run or go near the gate. I guess he learned the hard way, why running away is a bad idea, we didn't even have to spank him for it, hah !
I forgot, one special property of our cats is that we taught them how to climb both up and down trees. There are large pine trees here that can be climbed easily by cats. However, while most cats can climb up, they cannot climb down (and then I guess you have to call the firefighters), usually they try to climb down face first (which is not possible). Well, we taught the cats since a young age to climb both up and down facing towards the top of the tree, they are now expert climbers, but some are too fat to climb now. Although we did try to cut down on their food, they are very persistent in asking for more, even late at night. I wonder if they put MSG or who knows what other chemicals in cat food to make them fat and addicted to it. Maybe I'll try different cat food.
