Hi,
Over the years, I've taken many notes on various Linux topics. Sometimes I give them to friends so that they don't have to search for solutions on the net. Today, I've combed through them and put some stuff into a PDF with Libre Office.
If anyone has a need for encryption then you are welcome to grab a copy. It still needs a bit of formatting and has no ToC but I'll get that in a few days.
Here is a page sample (jpg):

Latest PDF draft version: 14b
PDF download link: https://www.littlecomposers.com/wp-cont ... et-14b.pdf

LOL, I typed all day and my eyes are gone! Thanks for the corrections, I've fixed them before my grade two teacher sees them. ;)

Your enthusiasm is commendable but, seriously, maybe a video presentation would be more suitable than a PDF. The writing style within the sample page is conversational; it could serve as a script...

That's a great idea. I will try and pick out some sections of the book and do short videos. Thanks! :)
