Absolutely a wealth of information.
Example: 60 minute compilation of the WW2 films of the concentration camps.
They could have used a better menu but the films are great.
The idea of showing gnu/linux/unix commands by using examples is to guide new users to have better understanding of the basic usage of a command and adapt to use it instantly. We are always [recommending] users...try out the command for more capabilities by going through the manuals. But usually a useful command comes with a very technical and complete manual, and these manuals sometime scares a new user away. It is because they couldn’t find a simple example just to try it out...Manuals are meant for reference, examples are meant for learning...

Atheists are often asked, "If you don't believe in God, why do you care about religion?" This is one atheist's answer to that very question...
Sure, even coming up with 20 zombie movies is as hard as coming up with the 20 Best, but this collection of a score of undead classics would make for one kickass boxed set of flesh eating goodness. I've managed to find YouTube links for all but a couple of the films, so enjoy, but be warned that some of the clips are rather loud and may contain excessive gore, so due to their extreme nature, nobody will be allowed on this website during the last 20 minutes of this article...

The Windows command line is a mainstay for systems administrators and power users but is relatively unknown to many PC users. The purpose of this site is to make the power and utility of the command line more familiar to a wider community of computer users.

If you have just bought yourself a replacement computer and find yourself with a spare heap of hardware in the house, what are your options?
It's tempting to get rid of the original PC once and for all but, on the other hand, it served you well once and surely you can find a productive use for it now. Then again, having just splashed out on your new kit, you're probably not inclined to pay out more to upgrade your old one.
Allow us to help. Here we suggest no fewer than 25 sensible things to do with a redundant computer. A few require a little technical expertise, several are absolutely free and others will set you back a few quid, but all of them are better than simply throwing that PC away.
