Moving to Blog-City
Now that you have your blog set up, you probably want to post something. Click the Blog-It tab at the top of the page to go to your Create New Blog Entry page (Figure 8), and then fill in the fields:
Title: the title for the post.
Summary: you either can fill this in explicitly or let the software do it for you by pulling out the first 250 characters from your post. As you might imagine, this can end up trailing off in the middle of a sentence.
Link to entry: lets you tell Blog-City to use a specific URL instead of using the title as the URL, which is handy if you need to be able to spell out the link to people later.
The content box: enter the content for your blog.
When you're finished, click Save and publish if you're finished with the post and ready to put it up, click Save entry in draft if you're not ready to publish it, or click Preview if you want to see what the post will look like. If you have people signed up for your mailing list (look in Extra -< Mailing List to see how many members—people can sign up right from your front page), you want to have checked the Send an alert e-mail to your mailing-list check box before posting. If you saved the entry to draft, you can post it later by clicking the Home tab, looking in the Entries not yet published section and clicking the entry title, and then clicking Publish Entry to the left of the content.
Click the Entries tab to add other types of content. An Entry generally refers to a blog post, but you also can post reviews, photos and Events. The administration section changes as often as the Blog-City staff adds new features, so be sure to explore it as time goes on, so you don't miss something new and cool.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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
