An Eee PC of One's Own

My soon to be hubby got me a pre-wedding gift: my very own Asus Eee PC!

And so far? Loving it. I plan to use it mainly for online browsing, webmail, and skype -- and for these it's about as plug and play as you can get.

As a new Eee PC owner I'd love to hear any tips and tricks you have for getting the most out of it. And of course, thanks to Shawn for the review that started it all: http://www.linuxjournal.com/node/1005898.

The screen is a small 7"...considering getting a magnifying glass to go with it.

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.
