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.

For a few days now I haven't been getting any email updates on threads that I am subscribed to. Seeing my inbox empty for the umpteenth time I went to the user control panel and checked out on my subscribed threads and many had been replied to.
So I naturally posted in them and then I got the update of a message that had been posted there many hours ago(before I replied again). Plus there are threads of which I get updates 2-3 days later. In most of the threads it now takes up to 4 hours before I get an update.
LinuxLala: Does your ISP have something like SpamAssassin set up to screen email? My email takes quite a long time to arrive, not 3 days, because of my ISP overworked mail servers trying to bounce back spam and scan the mail, and when the filter is disables it isn't quiet as slow.
LinuxLala, take a look at the message headers for one of the delayed e-mails. "View->message Source" in Mozilla or Thunderbird. At the top you will see a list of the servers that the mail has passed through. You can then compare the dates beside them and see where the biggest time gap is.
IT seems to be working fine now. I got the update to this thread pretty quickly
david_ross: I use a yahoo email account, so I clicked on Full Headers.
