In a strange cross-patch (sorry for hijacking your post Brad!), I believe
this answers the question on the other thread about what constitutes 'basic
information'. It's a series of "launch-off points":

1. How do I get online, use a browser, configure networking ...
2. How do I listen to music, store and organise music, edit music, share
music ...
3. How do connect to another machine, use SSH/FTP, configure a LAN ...
4. How do I keep my computer safe, encrypt data/drives, maintain a secure
network ...
5. How do I get my webcam working, create and edit videos, share videos ...

Hope that makes sense!



Cheers! Lana

My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I
start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake.
I feel better already.
