-In our network users can use 2 different scanner for different needs 
-  * If you need to scan an image, for  editing or copy, you can use the workstation [[http://​plan.epfl.ch/?​room=INR015|lthcpc24.epfl.ch]] located in th lab INR 015. Attacched to this workstation you can find a professional A4 scanner. The machine is really powerful, with 2x Xeon Cpus working at and 2Gbyte or Ram.\\ 
-With this scanner you can also digitalize pages from book. 
-  * The other solution is to use the HP Digital Sender that reside [[http://​plan.epfl.ch/?​room=INR133|here]]. This device create a **Pdf** files from your paper pages and send the file directly to your mailbox (if you insert correctly your email address on the controller). This appliance is easy to use and it's really powerfull when you have to scan a lot of pages all separated. It's absolutely uneasy if you have to scan pages from books or others heavy supports. 
-The scanner in the lab is accessible for all at every hour of day (and night). the Digital Sender is available only during the work day.

-Your home directory is named: ///​home/​YourLoginName//​ 
-\\ 
-==  Shells and Environment Customization == 
-  
-By default, you have a bourne shell (bash), meaning you can also type: //cd ~SomeLoginName//​ (eg: ~deatrich ) to reach your homedir. ​ 
-The bash shell has many features, read the man page for more help.

-If you want to modify your environment,​ then you typically need to edit your //​.bash_profile//​ and/or your //.bashrc// file. For instance, suppose you want to add an alias to ...: 
- 
- $ alias '​lstime=ls -latr' 
- 
-This line means that every time you insert in the command line the command //lstime//, the bash will execute the more complex command //ls -lart//
