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.

This has been brought up before, and my suggestion was to either being able to make "disable smileys" checked by default from My LQ or (even better IMO) being able to disable all smileys for me. I would really like it if I would be able to check something like "do not show smileys in posts by other". I can't see why this would be bad, because if someone would post a smiley for expression I would still be able to imagine it and understand what he ment even if the smiley is not graphical. I wouldn't have to see those ugly "newbie-smileys" for example, or posts that looks like david_ross' sig.
Code is code & is supposed to literal. In the absence of [PRE] &/| [VERBATIM] vB tags, then I think that [CODE] should suppress the smilies. I know I could turn them off (I think I have had to), but what if I want to use them in the regular parts of my post?
I think the general expectation is that the [CODE] tag is for exact transcription when precision matters, & therefore accidental smilies will be ignores. This is in keeping w/ the "Principle of Least Surprise", so I think showing smiles in a [CODE] block is a bug that should be fixed.
