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.

Right now I have a strange problem using the search function. I usually look at "View New Posts" in the Quick Links menu. I inadvertitely hit the link two consecutive times and - as usual - a message telling to wait at least 12 seconds between searches appeared. But this time...
This forum requires that you wait 12 seconds between searches. Please try again in 17927 seconds.
I waited about 15 seconds then retried and the message appears again. Am I supposed to really wait about 5 hours to be able to search messages again?!
Edit: I tried to "View New Posts" again after posting this thread and the wait time is still there... just decreased of about 3 minutes. Also noticed that the time of this post is about 5 hours behind the actual time (I posted at about 8:30 AM GMT)!
Now the situation is normal. What puzzles me is the creation time of the thread, exactly 5 hours before the actual time. In the calculation of the wait time these 5 hours have been added to reach the actual time. Maybe some temporary mismatch between the system time and the actual time on the LQ server. I don't know. I will report here if I notice the same situation again.
Ok. You can clearly see the time mismatch looking at this thread: post #3 is a reply to post #7. And the OP posted twice since he did not see his message at the end of the thread, since it was back in time and was inserted in the middle.
