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 find a solution for conveniently uploading stuff to youtube. I'm on a rather crappy connection and letting uploads run wild tends to tax it to the point where the net is completely unusable for anything at all. Needless to say this is less than ideal so I've been using my old netbook that I resurrected with Linux Mint to upload stuff and limiting the amount of bandwidth it's allowed to use with Trickle. That works reasonably well but since I'm working with files in the 4-6gb range it takes ages to upload.
What I'm hoping to find is a solution that will let me take the shackles off when I'm going out or going to bed, basically whenever I don't need to use the net I'd like to be able to just tell the netbook it has full access to my connection and to upload at full speed.
I came across pyshaper which looked to be exactly what I needed but after I finally managed to wrestle it into something approaching functionality (I'm not exactly a Linux guru) for some reason it doesn't seem to detect anything but my wired NIC, the wireless NIC doesn't appear in the list of adapters at all which is a shame since it's the one I'm using. I had a quick look through the conf file but didn't see anything that looked obvious although now I'm typing that it occurs to me it could be as simple as typing the interface ID in manually...
Can anyone suggest an alternative to pyshaper that will let my dynamically alter the limits I have set (ideally with a GUI but CLI is okay if not) or tell me if I'm making a simple mistake with pyshaper and it can shape wireless?
