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.

In the thread The migration has begun, I realised that I actually have no idea how many hours difference there is between the various time zones... GMT vs EST, for example. Since many of the people I have in my Gaim buddy list are not UK residents, it would be handy to have a little program that can sit on my desktop and display the time in multiple time-zones. Does anyone know if such a thing is around? I had a quick peek at SF and FM, but there doesn't appear to be what I'm looking for.
OK, I did actually find that one, but it wouldn't compile, so I dropped it. I've just installed the i386.rpm (shudder) and it sort-of works... it dependancy fails on libreadline.so.4, which I have, but with --nodeps it seems to work. I was hoping for a nice, fancy multi-analogue clock, but that'll do.

I just found out about kworldclock
You should already have it installed if you have KDE.
Try kworldclock & and see. It displays the map of the world, with the light zone to show where is day where is night, and shows all the capital cities, and time and date in each of them. Its quite interesting.
