My Quest For Linux (Ubuntu)

Some few weeks ago my interest and love for Linux have increased so much. I made all attempts to get a copy from anyone who uses the same thing here in my community but none of the people I asked have heard of it before. 
But I really want to make that "BIG" switch for now.

So I decided to research about one the Linux distro (Ubuntu) where I came across a lot of useful infos.
I even saw that Ubuntu CD's were once distributed ( Then I remembered I've seen one of the distributed CD's some years back with someone) . 

I found out that to get Ubuntu is either I download it OR buy the DVD 
(NB: The operating system is not for sale, it's free, you are only paying for the DVD and shipment not the software). Downloading it here will be quite something for me now.

I quickly came across a message in a forum which was posted some years back. So I decided to contact one of its members. Which he responded to.

I also posted my message in one of LinkedIn's Linux users group. This message attracted a lot of comments.
I even received private messages from people willing to send me the DVD's and others for free. Which have been sent and are yet to reach me.

I started reading and practicing some commands and other things about Linux online until I received the first DVD sent by John from USA recently. 

My Day 1 Experience with Linux (Ubuntu) coming soon now here

How to create a Facebook page

After creating a Facebook page for my blog today , I've been receiving a series a request from friends and others about how to create a Facebook page. So I've decided to put it into a blog post and share it.

Here are the steps involved in creating a Facebook page, is very easy and it won't take you more than 20 minutes.

  • First Log in to your Facebook account

  • After logging in Click Create Page at the end of your Facebook homepage.

  • Choose from one of the categories.

  • Select the one that falls under the page you wish to create

  • Input page name and click Get Started
  • Add description to the page.

  • Upload page image

  • You can skip this step if you wish. (Manage ads)

Your page is ready. Changing of page image, description and other things are just similar to the way you change your personal Facebook profile details.

I hope this helped and thanks for reading.
