There will be a total of 6 assignments related to labs , and I will give you about 10 days to get it done.
Part of each assignment will be "looking back" to make sure you have done what we have been considering so far, and part will be testing your understanding of the material.
One portion of the assignment will typically involve all of the admininstrators, since it will relate to the configuration of the machine, which you should all agree upon and understand. The remainder of the assignment will relate to your personal understanding of what is going on.
The point of the assignments is not as much to find out what you do not know as it is to give you a chance to test and improve your understanding of what you know, and indicate what you should know by this point in the course.
Make yourself a directory
on studsys and put each assignment there in a file named AssignmentNN.html. No other name is acceptable. You can always check that you have posted your assignment by accessing it from the classlist page!
The html page can be generated any way you like. You will not impress me by fancy graphics, but it is your choice to use them if you like.
I would probably just write a plain old text file, and then stick in HTML paragraph tags and such. You probably want to "wrap" plain text by putting it inside a block such as
If you wish them to be forwarded elsewhere, put a file .qmail (yes no letters before the dot) in /home/LOGNAME on studsys.
In this .qmail file, insert your email address (to which you want your studsys emails to be forwarded to , eg: firstname.lastname@example.org) as the first and only line in that file.
If you wish to include more than one email address, put the second email address on the second line.
Do not include any other characters such as commas, semicolon, etc in the .qmail file.
The command man dot-qmail on studsys will show you other options.
