*nix Notes Collection

"Knowledge is power"


- Where are the Windows?
- They are on the walls.
In the world that Gods want to profit from the Windows,
  you will bump into walls wherever you go.
Welcome to the real world, in which functionality can cooperate
  arbitrarily, and information flow throw them without barriers.
However, newcomers to this world might feel lost
  without Windows to look at and go through,
Knowledge is the only thing you need, and the power
  to navigate in this kingdom of freedom.

You may have noticed that,

Xpt Tech-Note Collection Search

Please note I've stopped making the compressed site tar ball for the local copy of this *niX Notes Collection. This allows me to update the site more often than releasing the site tar ball. And most importantly, I think the site has grown to such a point that it is difficult to locate the information that we are looking for despite the fact that the contents and their orders have been carefully arranged. I.e., by now it makes much more sense to use the online Xpt Tech-Note Collection Search than to have a ~50M local site copy.
