Thanks to everyone who decided that looking for a miniscule beer bottle among the pages of Linux Journal for a chance at some auto accoutrements is a worthy way to spend what little free time you have. Jon maddog Hall even sent in a correct answer (albeit too late to qualify for the prize), telling us “You can't hide beer from maddog”, as if we didn't know.
Many hundreds of readers were sharp enough to find the beer bottle on the table on page 93 in the “Crystal Space” article. Some even picked up on the hint by way of the 3-D glasses suggestion. Others should spend more time looking for beer (or better yet—a job) and less time drinking it, for they “found” beer in the most remarkable places in the magazine's pages. For these folks we're offering another chance. To make the new start fresh, this time you'll be looking for something completely different—a mug of beer—and no, it's not the one pictured here. This one is an example. For this month's prize we'll be letting you help us clean out our warehouse by accepting some pristine vintage Linux Journal XL T-shirts. This time, correct responders numbered 200-300 will win.

If you're doing without Tetris or Solitaire one day at a time, stop reading right now. The free SDL-based game Frozen Bubble, in which you control a cute penguin and lob colored bubbles into a geometric pattern while a chill-room soundtrack plays, is so addictive that user Nick Moffitt reported it to the Debian bug tracking system as a “Title 1 Controlled Substance”.

Free Webinar: Linux Backup and Recovery
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.
