Linux Journal Announces Winner of Linux Lunacy Contest

SEATTLE, WA -- SSC Publications, publisher of the award-winning magazine Linux Journal and its bi-monthly sister publication Embedded Linux Journal, is proud to announce that John Sullivan of Virginia was selected from over 200 entries as the winner of Linux Journal's recent contest, "Win a trip for two on Linux Lunacy".

A Linux Journal subscriber since 1998, John Sullivan has also been an avid Linux user for the past five years. This can be proven simply by looking at some of the ways Sullivan has put Linux to work: workstation, webserver, search engine, statistical analysis, and home automation. "I would like to thank all the people and companies who make Linux and Open Source software a viable alternative to proprietary software. It makes my job easier and much more fun," commented Sullivan.

Linux Lunacy, a conference produced by Geek Cruises and Linux Journal, will take place in October 2001 aboard Holland America's Eastern Caribbean cruise. For additional information on this and other conferences by Geek Cruises please visit

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.
