Looks like I have been living

Looks like I have been living under a rock. i spent the past weekend with my sister and her family. My brother-in-law and I got into a talk about, of all things, libraries. Somehow the conversation turned to the use of radio frequency id in his local library. While, I was familiar with the term at a baseline level, I had no idea how wide this technology spread.

He mentioned how the local library used them on everything they checked out. He also mentioned, how publishers are using RFID as a connection between print and online platforms.

This propelled me to think about my own ereading experience, and that I needed to educate myself on the nuance and capabilities of RFID.
Currently, I'm looking to learn about RFID readers(is www.rfidreader.com a good place to start?) and really understand the process.

Man, my inner nerd came out in this post! I'm just really excited when I have a chance to learn about something new, especially an emerging technology.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
