Having just spent the last (in addition to many other) rainly weekends playing this game I have got to let you know that should you purchase this game you <i><b>will</b></i> become addicted to it. My son, brother and I have even once managed to get all 24 tuxes balanced. I'd post the victory picture if I had a scanner. I was glad to see it's still for sale- just bought two copies for the cousin's this coming Christmas.

1. Once upon a time there was a game involving penguins.

2. For a while the penguins were happy on their iceberg.

3. But after falling over once too often

4. They ganged up together

5. And got a bit mean.

6. One penguin, however didn't agree with this new policy

7. and all his friends

8. dragged him to the Penguin Council

9. But he had really bad breath

10. after all, he had been eating fish :p

11. Once the council revived, though

12. They dragged him off to his doom,

13. but he was too heavy, and they dropped him,

14. and so he breathed his last (halitosis) breath

With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

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.
