GLUE Introduces Free Membership and Improved Web Site
GLUE (Groups of Linux Users Everywhere), praised by both ZDNet and InfoWorld, is well-known in the Linux community as the premiere on-line resource for user group information.
GLUE features over 1,000 groups in 97 countries, and individuals looking for help and support from fellow Linux users can easily find their local group on the GLUE site. For Linux user groups looking to increase visibility and attract new members, we offer special offers and promotions for your members -- all free of charge -- just for listing your group on GLUE. GLUE members receive from the following sponsors:
Linux Journal: 20% off regular subscription cost, CD-ROMs, bumper-stickers, 2002-2003 Tux Calendar
TOLIS: 20% off all BRU product purchases
GeCAD: A free copy of the latest version of RAV AntiVirus
Racksaver: T-shirts(Some benefits available in North America only, please visit the GLUE web site for more information.)
GLUE also offers advice on starting a new group, trade shows, where to meet, and why you should join. A new addition is the GLUE Group-of-the-Month contest: each month we will choose the best group photo of a LUG and will send every member in the group (up to 50) a free t-shirt. (To enter, send your LUG group photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Linux Journal Sales Coordinator Christy Kyllo has assumed the role of GLUE coordinator, and can be reached via e-mail at email@example.com.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
