When you are done your evaluation do
touch .courseval_done in your
Assignments directory on the CLS and the nag messages will go away.
Reminder: There are now three quizzes that you need to complete on Blackboard as part of your term Quiz mark.
Check the due date for each assignment and put a reminder in your agenda, calendar, and digital assistant.
The worksheets are available in four formats: Open Office (ODT), PDF, HTML, and Text. Only the Open Office format allows you “fill in the blanks” in the worksheet. The PDF format looks good but doesn’t allow you to type into the blanks in the worksheet. The HTML format is crude but useful for quick for viewing online.
Do NOT open the ODT files using any Microsoft products; they will mangle the format and mis-number the questions. Use the free Libre Office or Open Office programs to open these ODT documents. On campus, you can download Libre Office here.

There are now three quizzes that make up your Quiz mark in this course.
179 Practice Test #3 questions are available along with an answer key in the Class Notes. Questions are mostly on the last third of the course. See the Practice Test README page. The Final Exam covers the whole course, not just this practice test.
A Quiz on these questions is available on Blackboard. See the Week 04 Notes HTML for how quizzes work. Not all practice questions appear in the quizzes. The Final Exam covers the whole course, not just this practice test.
Finding things that are not symbolic links that have other write permissions: Search for world-writable in Finding Files.
(You have one assignment that requires you to create world-writable files. Course-related files are not counted against you.)
You are now logging in to multiple machines. Set your shell
PS1 prompt to include the machine name, so that you don’t type the wrong command on the wrong machine!
