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.

I'm trying to edit my profile in Facebook, I added a lot of info, but when I got to the "activities and interest" I can't save it. every time I click on anything it asks me if I want to leave this page because of unsaved changes! I can't find the save button anywhere on the page! I don't know if it's because I'm using Linux or it's just user error, not knowing what I'm doing.
Didn't try this myself but you could take a look at the facebook help page where you will see:
To add activities and interests:
Click the "Edit Profile" button in the top-right corner of your profile.
Select "Activities and Interests" from the left-hand menu.
Type the names of a favorite activity (like hiking or reading) into the "Activities" field, or a favorite interest (like architecture or history) into the "Interests" field. If pages exist for the activities or interests you add, then your profile will link to them, however you won’t be listed publicly as someone who likes these pages unless you click the "Like" button. If you want to add an interest or activity that doesn’t have an existing page, then you will be prompted to create a new page.
The less information you put about yourself on Facebook, the better off you are.
Two years ago, I scrubbed my Facebook page of any information that was not already public on my website. If I didn't use Facebook to publicize my blog, I would have left there long ago. The game is not worth the candle.
