This is a tutorial, and has hands-on exercises for you to do to help understand the material presented.

Please make sure that:
 +
* You can use a text editor (vi emacs nano gedit — I don't care)
 +
* You have a laptop with plenty of charge.  There will be some power available; I don't know how much.
 +
* You can get access to a Bourne compatible shell. Most machines will have `/bin/sh` as a link to a Bourne-compatible shell.  Such shells include:
 +
** dash
 +
** bash
 +
** ksh

We'll be using only standard commands — ''ls sed awk grep test'' etc.

One non-standard command you may wish to install for the first exercise is sysvbanner.  On Debian or Ubuntu do:

apt-get install sysvbanner
  
Australian summers are hot. You '''must''' wear sunscreen, and remain hydrated. At a rough guide, you will need to drink at least 2 litres of water per day during summer.

It doesn't seem to be available for CentOS, but for RedHAT and Fedora you can do:

yum install banner
==Quarantine restrictions==
+
 
+
Australia has some of the strongest quarantine laws in the world. '''You cannot bring fresh fruit, meats, animal products and many other items into the country'''.

==Australian and Victorian laws==
+
 
+
===Drink driving===

+
 
+
===Liquor===
+
The legal age of majority in Australia is 18 years.
+
 
+
===Same sex couples===
