Alternate Web Notes

Web notes for this course are not kept at Algonquin College.  I pay for them to be stored on a commercial Linux-based web hosting service, with backup copies located in other locations.  The back-up locations may not be updated as frequently as the main site.

The main site is  http://teaching.idallen.com/dat2330/03f/ 

The current back-up locations are here:

  1. http://teaching.idallen.org/dat2330/03f/   (Note the dot .org domain suffix!)
  2. http://acadunix.algonquincollege.com/~alleni/teaching/dat2330/03f/     (on campus)
    The ACADUNIX site is accessible from inside Algonquin College even when the College Internet is broken. Unfortunately, the web server on ACADUNIX is broken and will not serve up the directory index files correctly. You can read the Class Notes by appending /notes/ to the above URL.
  3. http://elearning.algonquincollege.com/coursemat/alleni/idallen/dat2330/03f/     (on campus)
    The ELEARNING site is accessible from inside Algonquin College even when the College Internet is broken. Unfortunately, the web server on ELEARNING is broken and will not serve up the directory index files correctly. You can read the Class Notes by appending /notes/ to the above URL.
  4. http://teaching.idallen.ca/     (Note the dot .ca domain suffix!)
    The dot .ca sites are located at my home in downtown Ottawa (limited bandwidth). Don't use them unless all the other sites are down.

The ACADUNIX site is accessible from on-campus even when the College Internet is broken. 

Always try the main site first.

Required Course Textbook

Running Linux, 4th edition.  Be sure to correct the textbook mistakes by reading the Errata page.

The above book is the only book required for the daytime version of this course (section 010).  All other "suggested" materials (e.g. a Linux Chart) were added without my permission and are not correct.  The night version of this course (via Continuing Education) has a different instructor and a different book list.

Forward your Algonquin EMail

You must have a working Algonquin EMail address for your Algonquin courses. (See the end of College Directive E33.)

During the term, I will only send your marks to your Algonquin EMail address.  From on-campus, you can forward your Algonquin EMail to any other address you wish.  You are responsible for keeping the forwarding address accurate during the term.

You may wish to set your "alternate" EMail using ACSIS while on campus. I will only use your alternate EMail to inform you that your main Algonquin EMail account has a forwarding error; no personal data will ever be sent to the alternate EMail address.

Warning!  No copying!  No group work!  No working together!

There are no group assignments in this course.  Working together is not permitted. Copying material from other sources (from other students, books, the Internet, or even from the blackboard or posted course notes) without proper credit is an academic offence called plagiarism.  Students working together or submitting work containing plagiarized material will be charged with academic fraud under College Directive E16.  Read the plagiarism document for details.
