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.

plus, we don't want usefull information to disappear at the whim of the user. if everyone deleted their posts when they got an answer,or sorted it out on their own, this sites search function would soon become useless.
I am really confused now. You want a search feature for google on this site. You can just as easily click the search button as you can the user cp button. How is this "wasted"? More importantly, what do you propose to be a better way to implement it (instead of just complaining, propose how to fix it ).
As for "quickness" I really don't think it's a race to post. Take your time replying, if you make a typo (or several) simply edit your post. It doesn't take nearly as much time to "edit" a few words rather than post all the old ones, along with the edits. Just relax, lay back, and enjoy the ride; I think you'll have a much better time this way. However if you still have "issues" with some of the features (or lack of), the layout, or content of this site, by all means, address them (and here since this is the place to do that ) so Jeremy can address them.
Originally posted by fancypiper I am an old man now, so speed may be important. I no longer feel invulnerable and life stretching endlessly befor me as it was before I started losing my brothers and sisters to old age.
Lord, grant me patience and I want it right now!
Ok, I can see, and agree with that. But I must re-stress that it does take longer to retype the words you are not going to simply edit during a repost than it does to simply edit the few words you are going to in an edit. In an extremely over-exaggerated example you are building a car, and not putting the chrome valve covers on; and instead of removing the old dulled ones and replacing them with new chrome ones, you rebuild the entire car. To me, that's the wasted time, not the delete feature not being available
I am really sorry that I cannot realize how slow dial up is. It's been a good 2 years since I've had to suffer through it, and I cannot remember those times. I appologize if my suggestions suck for dial-uppers And I also understand getting the tag "thingies" backwards, I do that quite often myself. Still, the only suggestion I can think of, and still stands to reason, is to just edit the post. Even using the "quick reply" would take slightly more time getting the post posted than just editing it. I think it might just be what you are used to, rather than actual speed involved (in other words, you can delete and redo a post faster, but only because that is what you are used to doing, not because it's truly faster).
