Learn to use ALFS. Reading and understanding the book is worth a lot. Tuning the resulting minimalistic system is also nice. But reproducing the commands and checking versions adds little to the experience.

I keep getting stuck around Chapter 4 and give up too easily. I guess my patients is not what it used to be.
The secret is, to keep Your computer running all the time.

I do that and finally arrived at chapter 6.12 ( but i did one Week nothing more on it).

Will continue today, i think.
