THIS IS A TEST - DO NOT DISTRIBUTE TO OTHER LISTS YET! - THIS IS A TEST
Hi, everybody, how's this for an email release for our next class?
1) Too wordy? Should we make an extra less wordy one for different
2) I think the dates are right. But how about price? Currently $300.
Particularly, how much did the computers come out to last class? Did we
fall short with $520?
3) We are still on for R+M. Anything I should know about space or time
(particularly for the Unix 1 half?)

Linux 1: Introduction to GNU/Linux
Unix 1: Introduction to Unix
Wednesdays, from May 15th to July 24th 7:00-10:30PM
Linux is the fastest growing operating system today. Free, and
extremely powerful, it runs on an wide variety of platforms for an
extremely wide variety of applications. Whether you already have some
experience or are coming fresh, join us to find out why GNU/Linux is
being used by everyone from NASA, IBM, Google, the Dep. of Defense to
millions of home users worldwide.
Our 5 week LINUX 1 class introduces Free Software and the GNU/Linux
operating system. Through lectures and hands on text and graphical
installations, students develop an understanding of the operating system
and its historical relevance. We will discuss how information is
stored and accessed on the computer, and how the system is organized.
This includes an overview of file systems, partitions, files
permissions, the Unix directory tree, and an introduction to the
kernel. Students will learn to perform complete text and graphical
installations, as well as basic network and system configuration.
Our INTRODUCTION TO UNIX 1 class introduces the Command Line Interface
(CLI) and some of the powerful tools it makes available. Built into
every Unix system, the CLI is the strongest and most essential tool to
unleash the potential of your computer. This class will demystify the
CLI, and help explain when and how to use it to make the most efficient
use of your computing experience. Going beyond simple commands, the
class introduces Shell scripting, Vi, the GCC compiler, and network and
system administration. prerequisites: Linux 1.
Each class meets weekly for 5 weeks. There will be a one week
intermission between Linux 1 and Unix 1. Both classes are being offered
together as one class, it is no possible to take them seperately.
Classes follow a lecture format. Study groups will meet on the internet,
and student space for homework will be provided on our server and for
discussion via our NYLXS education mailing list.
We are offering these classes for $300 each (or $600 together).
Students are highly encouraged to purchase lab computers for use in
class. ($520) We will house them and you can take them home when you
are done. In the interest of maintaining a professional learning
environment, only these computers will be used in class.
For $600, plus $520 for the computer, that's incredibly cheap compared
to the $1500-$2300 of similar classes elsewhere, and you get to keep the
computer! (Students are free to share a computer with a friend to save
on computer costs.)
NYLXS members get a $20 discount.
