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.

Ah, yes, I made that correction before actually, I copied it from the post.
For ze' script easierness:
***START OF LOG***
jalal@computer:~$ rename noio noio.script
jalal@computer:~$ chmod u+x noio.script
chmod: getting attributes of `noio.script': No such file or directory
jalal@computer:~$ ***END OF LOG***
Well, it seems that there is a rename command, but what people use is "mv"; "mv oldfile newfile". I never use the "bash blah", but I think it works
That kind of research is really interesting, but what if the implants are proprietary? Pay $100 a month to get my arm to move the way I want... And what about crashes and reboots? The way things seem to go with the patents on genes - which is completely nuts - it wouldn't surprise me... Ah, sorry about the distopia, it was meant as a joke in the beginning, but I guess I got off track
Behhh...i dont have much experience btw...tried linux out a few different times on my main computer..but because of the lack of support for learning...i typed exit and dropped back to you know what, by you know who. HERES A SECRETTT btw, shhh, its free. ...but yea...any ideas with what could be wrong with it? many thanks again
OK, the script I wrote isn't very good since it will change it's own name if it's in the wrong dir I really don't understand what's going wrong in your case, but anyway, here's how I would do it:
1) Open an editor, write the script, and save it in, for instance, my home dir, maybe as noio. Since the script is a bit bad, the dir variable has to be something other than the directory that the script is in.
2) Quit the editor, and issue "chmod u+x noio" at the terminal prompt.
3) Now it should be enough to do "./noio" at the prompt.
