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.

Did you try the Affero or Amazon links? Alternatively, drop an email to Jeremy and she be able to give you some other ways to pay. He is away from keyboard for a while, so he won't be able to answer immediately.
After several attempts, I managed to donate. For some reason, two donations went out.
However, I am not happy about the donation procedure.
One went through paypal. which I had great difficulty to proceed (see #1 in this thread).
The other went through 2co.com.
Reasons which make an unhappy penguin follow:
1, As of today, that link no longer exists on donation page. I cannot check the terms and conditions.
2, As I was not quite confident, I did not click "yes" at final screen. (or at least, I do not remember that I clicked. I remember I decided to close the screen before I finalise.)
3, For some reason, it set up recurring payment every year. Although I am happy to donate, I do not remember if I saw that. Also, no instruction how to terminate annual payment, (e-mail says, annual payment until termination)
1, For some reason, it was not easy to navigate for me. (see #1) But I managed to do that.
2, No e-mail or whatever at all from paypal. I do not have any number or id to contact if anything happens. I also do not know if donation goes out every year as 2co.com says.
I have used online shopping (Amazon, Yahoo and others) and online bill payment (through my bank), and usually the procedure is not this confusing.
I know that everypenguin here is a volunteer. It is not my intention to increase workload. But I appreciate if you can improve this situation.

I guess I'm a little confused. Why did you subscribe using both PayPal and 2CO? To answer a couple of your questions: The link still is on the contributing members page (https://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/member.html), you can login to 2CO and cancel at any time or send me a message to cancel recurring billing, the contributing member page makes the recurring bit clear I hope ("For your convenience your subscription will be automatically renewed - you can cancel at any time."). As for the email from PayPal, you'd need to contact them directly to remedy that. Thank you for supporting LQ. Also, please note that donating (https://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/donation.html) is in no way related to the contributing member program. It's possible that is causing some of your confusion.
