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.

Recently purchased a new Panasonic 1080P plasma. The Panasonic has nice streaming features which include - Netflix, Amazon, Pandora, Napster, built in media (Picture, Video, and Audio) playback from USB devices and SD cards, along with a DLNA receiver.

My cable provider, WOW!, is starting their digital migration. Lucky for us, they've decided to listen to the customers, and are broadcasting their digital stations on Clear QAM!!!!
This digital migration means that I have to add/replace/upgrade some tuners in the backend.

This setup has been running for roughly 3 years, with the same issues. /dev/video# ordering -
Upon the rare reboot, the tuners would reorder themselves. Considering the Falcon 2's use IVTV, and the HVR1600's analog tuner uses cx18, this can cause issues with MythTV. Usually I just resolved this by quickly running mythtv-setup...
The keyboards for my main PCs are quite old. Purchased sometime between 1999 and 2001. They are not the cleanest of things, some ink on the letters have worn off, and a few keys have become a little difficult to press at times. The oldest one is a Logitec multimedia keyboard, the other is a nice HP model with multimedia keys from the only OEM PC I've ever owned. They still work, they just have years of dust and dirt build up.
This got me thinking about the reason I still have these...
