amused, silly, ha ha only serious

Notes from the Field: Linux class

  • It's a bad sign when the teacher doesn't know how to get back to his home directory.
  • Newbies should not be taught vi. The modes are too confusing.
  • Emacs is a tad iffy, too (but better). pico would probably be best.
  • A couple minutes with things like "Unix is case-sensitive" would be helpful.
  • As always, helping cutegirls is fun.
