Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference

Although it’s been awhile I know about this book, I decided to download it today. At first I didn’t notice that this book is available for free download :D. The PDF version of this book is free to download and you can buy the print version from Amazon.com

The contents of this 152 pages book are:

Chapter 1: Installing Ubuntu
Chapter 2: Configuring Ubuntu
Chapter 3: Getting to grips with the desktop
Chapter 4: Users and the filesystem
Chapter 5: Hands-on at the command-line
Chapter 6: Software Management
Chapter 7: Securing the system

For you who interested to download this book, you can go directly to Ubuntu Pocket Guide and Reference website. User from Indonesia can download faster from FOSS-ID website. But it’s best if you download directly from their website to get the most recent version.

At this moment I also like to thanks the author of this book, Keir Thomas  for making this book free to download :)

Red Cliff II

Red Cliff IIRed Cliff II or also known as Chi bi xia: Jue zhan tian xia is the second episode of Red Cliff or also known as Chi bi. This movie is about the The Battle of Red Cliff in Three Kingdoms era in China.

When I saw the first episode of the movie, I was dissapointed because I didn’t know that the movie will be continued to the second episode. The first episode ends with the preparation of the battle. So I was curious how will the movie end.

In this second episode of the movie, it tells the story how Cao Cao’s efforts to take over the Red Cliff through land and sea. But his effort can be broken by Zhao Yu who has coalition with Sun Quan and Liu Bei. Superb strategy collaboration between Zhao Yu and Zhuge Liang (Liu Bei’s advisor) could predict the move that will be used by Cao Cao, so they could counter attack Cao Cao’s strategy. The war strategy used is not only for physical attack, but also for moral attack between both sides makes this film more appealing.

With John Woo as the director of this movie, there are a lot of interesting action scenes. Also with a good plot of the story, makes this movie worth to watch :)
