Note that prototyping work for the Linux Documentation Project is moved to The unofficial Linux Documentation Project Advanced Research and Prototyping Laboratory.
My main project here are my contributions to the Linux Documentation Project on how best to utilize a system with multiple disks for reliability, speed and convenience and also how to stay up to date with the development. This is the home page for them, look here for the latest versions.
Due to increased workload I am no longer able to spend the time required to post updated news, so this task has now been taken over by other member of the LDP who now write the LDP Weekly News and also maintains an archive.
Update 2006-12-28: The weekly news writing has gone quiet recently and I therefore wrote the December issue (plain text) to restart the writing.
If you just wish to take a look I have put up a screenshot (in PNG format) showing the contents list in the left column and the contents itself in large main window. Here is a screenshot (in PNG format) in the index mode, showing list of indexed words in the left column. clicking any of these presents a list in the main window of topics that match the index word.
The latest draft of Multi Disk HOWTO for Linux is available as
Stub man pages for HOWTOs are under development, and you can see the rendered Disk-HOWTO(ldp) or just the nroff source.
You might also find the Linux Filesystem Structure Standard and the related FAQ useful. FHS now also has an open homepage with even more documentation.

There has been a little interest both on nyx and in the
for more interactive mysteries, and in actual fact one
such does exist, and has been around for a while even.
The simpest way is if you have Tinifugue, a MOO client.
Then you just need this little
file. Load it in but make first sure you do not overwrite
any previous .tfrc file you may have. Note that some
browsers will not allow you to save a file with a name with a
leading dot, in that case rename and save before you rename
the file to .tfrc to get the dot back in again.
When you start up tf it will connect you to
lambdaMOO and you will be prompted for starting up
a session: type connect guest or help.
Then there is a little legalese, read through and answer yes or no.
Finally you will be asked where to start, answer quiet or noisy.
Have a wander around to familiarise yourself with the place, the people and the commands. You can type help to get help on lambdaMOO commands and /help to get help on Tinifugue. Then, when you feel ready to start your adventure you simply type /mystery to start up a macro defined in your .tfrc file and you are transported to the scene of the crime. After you are finished (or give up) you type @quit to close your connection and /quit to leave Tinyfugue. The solution? I do not know but supposedly you can discover it yourself in the best traditions of a whodunnit. For more information you can check out what the author (Judy Malloy) wrote some time ago. Good luck, you will need it.
If you program DSP56xxx chips from Motorola, you might find it useful to write the assembly souce in Ultraedit with this wordfile.txt that I have made.
