that comment about the cable company seeing the net as yet another tv channel reminded me of the story about trying to describe the idea of package based networking to the "graybeards" at the phone company.

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.
