Research paper writing entails intricate step-by-step procedure. Therefore, it is essential to manage every step meticulously in order to produce a quality research paper. Here’s the step-by-step procedure towards efficient research paper management:
STEP 1. Select a topic
Choose a topic that stimulates interests and challenging. The attitude towards a topic determines the amount of effort and enthusiasm exerted on a study. Focus on a limited aspect and select a subject that is manageable. Avoid topics that are too technical or those that only has scarce source materials.
STEP 2. Gather data
There are many ways to gather the necessary details of the study – on the Internet, in the library and other electronic resources. In gathering data, it is relevant to jot down full bibliographical information of the source like the author, title, URLs, and date of publication. Keep in mind that a study without bibliographical information is irrelevant since source is not cited.
There's a long running "discussion" about whether Mono and apps written in .NET/C# should be included, nay- used, in Linux. Apparently, Richard Stallman doesn't think so... [Thanks to Slashdot for the reminder] He doesn't really go into the details as to why, but rather appears to be using his "status" to be enough justification to his argument.
If you are open minded and not simply a Microsoft basher, check out this fantastic explanation on Why Mono Doesn't Suck to hear the other side of the story. Then make up your own mind.

An essay example is a great tool for any student who needs some help when writing their academic papers. These kinds of papers can provide the difference between a failing grade or a satisfactory one for students who are not adept at submitting written work.
An essay example helps students by providing them with various ideas on how to proceed on their own essay homework. Those who are suffering from the dreaded mental or writer's block could simply look at the essay example, and find the help that they need. These kinds of works gives students a concrete sample on how to tackle a topic, proper grammar guidelines as well as give samples on flow and transition devices between paragraphs.
However, an essay example can be quite difficult to come by. The search for one could become a hindrance instead of a benefit since a student may just opt to spend long hours, just searching for an essay example that they may use.
As a former Sysadmin for a multitude of Unix varieties I was often hit with the task of adhering to some governing policy regarding lockdown or hardening of the O/S's that I administered. One of the more challenging was compliance with DISA UNIX STIGs. If you've ever had this task, you'll know that there are three components (the STIG policy document, the SRR scripts, and a manual checklist). There was never an automated way of getting the O/S in compliance, and worse, an automated way to ensure compliance as the servers evolved over time. This rather mundane task (finding, editing, and checking a series of configuration files, CHMODs, and the like) quickly became a daily "chore". Keeping servers in-sync with one another was a task in itself and making mistakes while editing O/S configuration files could set you back a day or two.
Dissertation writing is indeed one type of formal writing, which means the tone and the format of the whole paper should be something out of the ordinary. A dissertation is expected to be professionally made.
Apparently though, there are still some who commits mistake in writing. One of the common mistakes is wrong usage of terms and phrases. In that note, below are some of these terms and phrases that shouldn't be used in dissertation writing.
Adverbs. These words are often overly used. Instead of using too much adverbs, it would be better to use strong words instead.
Jokes. A formal document has no room for these. So better use it in your other works, perhaps on your literary pieces.
Perfect. People know that there's no such thing. So better not use it anyway.
Soon. In a formal document, you have to be specific especially if you're talking about time. Be concrete.
This is a tale that starts back in the ancient days of the 1960's when the pterydactyls flapped through the skys over San Francisco Bay and I went for 8 years without owning a television set...
When I was an undergraduate at UC Bezerkeley in the early 1960's computers were not appreciated outside of the engineering department and only super intense, generally male math majors were also interested in computers. In fact the overall response to computers could be summed up in the chorus of one of the Free Speech Movenment's holiday carols sung to the tune of "Joy to the World"
Joy to the world, the word has come
Clar Kerr* has called us red.
If you're not 49 percent, you can't work for the government
The Knowledge Factory
Produces more GNP
Without your subversion on its property
Oh do not fold or spindle, oh do not fold or spindle,
oh do not fold or spindle, or mutiiiilate.

So in the dizzyingly complex Linux systems I tend to work with (my Desktop being one of the worst), I've found locate to be my goto tool for locating anything and everything that's listed as a file. Locate is great, works blazingly fast, doesn't encounter permission denied errors like find. The only issue I've encountered with locate is that it uses an index database of the local file system to search for your pattern string. This database needs to be updated prior to searches, in some shared environments this update is controlled by a cron run, but if you have sudo rights or are the root user then you can run the "locate -u" command which is often aliased as "updatedb".
