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.

Has anyone ever discussed adding a feature to LQ to allow sending an instant message to another member? Presumably the member would have the option to turn this off and maybe to block messages from specific users.
An alternative would be something that alerts you (while you are online) that you have received a PM or a Visitor Message.
well I guess this is largely in line with a chatroom, which is never something that has ever been looked upon favourably as it removes these discussions from the forum, where they can be of use to many other people.
PM alerts can be set within your profile, I get an email when I receive a PM. IM or any other form of chat has always been turned down by Jeremy as it is unmoderated and any discussions would be off forum which goes against the idea of having all discussions fully available.
