Re: Older than Doc? Older than dirt!

Doc said: "At 55, I'm sure I was the oldest person there, and since I've been going to conferences since the 70s, I probably held that record as well."

And I just have to reply, "Wrong on both counts Doc!" In fact, I was surprised how many of the geriatric set seemed to be there.

Anyway, it was a great presentation Doc... shows what damage a person can do with a box of penquins and a digital camera!

Hey Doc, great article about a great show, and you gave a kick ass speech. The penguin pile up part was the best, even though I saw it when you first debuted it on your blog so long ago. I want to thank you again for being one of the key factors for starting blogging, which directly ties into me being at Gnomedex. You, Winer, and 09.11, like I said. I am not sure you read these personally, but I look forward to talking to you more in depth at next year's Gnomedex!

Doc,

Great article! How ironic that you and Beth were on the same flight! :)

Thank you so much for speaking and for adding even MORE fun to my day by including my special moment signing Lili. :) By the way, is that photo available? I would love to have it for my personal collection!

My only regret of Gnomedex is that there wasn't enough time to spend with each person. I'm sorry that we didn't get a chance to talk very much. :( Maybe next year! ;)

One of the two women behind the Gnome,

Doc, you have a positive valence for ALL objects, not just business cards. I think you've lost your glasses, cell phone, Apple AirPort Base Station, and smashed two PowerBooks in the space of a year, and those are just what I know about.

It's part of why we all love you!

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. 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.

Webinar
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.
