To get all of you new users started we'll perform a very simple terminal command. Go to your "applications > accessories > terminal" to open up a terminal window.
Type in "uptime" without the quotes and press enter:
you will get a description about your computer. What time it is currently and how many minutes, hours or days your computer has been running. Here is an example from my computer:
14:21:17 up 5:59, 2 users, load average: 0.52, 0.44, 0.56
If you are a new user, stick with us as we will bring you more easy to follow terminal tips. Dont be scared, be a commander of Terminal Commands!
