    I managed to get a new job:)

    After thinking about where i was, i realised i couldn't leave home on my current wage. So i managed to get a job with a 55% increase in my wage with paid training.:)

    I would of said something sooner, but i know a few guys in my current workplace are on here.

    just wait till you get onto Unix and you see that cursor spinning around for absolutley ages and just when you think it's fooked something happens or you delete something and don't get are you sure yes or no option because it just does what you tell it.

    unix is ace, all you have to do is to make sure what you type into the command line is really what you want because unlike Windows if you delete something its gone forever.

    My system at work used to be ran on Unix servers but we change 3.5 years ago to Win2k3. I think it was done because it's cheaper and more user friendly. I would have preffered to stay on Unix.

    well doing the commands are basically the same as the windows command line with just the odd difference here and there.

    some commands I'll give you
    rm filename will kill a file completly but you can do rm -i filename which will ask for confirmation

    chmod o+r filename will make the file readable for everyone

    ls lists your files or ls -l which lists the files with all the details like size etc

    mv moves a file or you can use it to give a file a different name like mv bunchofcheese meltedcheese

    There are loads of unix websites to introduce you to the commands on the web,

    Congrats!
    And for Unix commands check google out. Also I'd recommend O'Reily books if you want a good read on the subject.
