Playing with the OLPC XO

Thanks to super-cool Robert Nagle who loaned us his XO, we have something new to play with this week. I will add some video of the XO in action, but for now here is a photo of the XO with our lovely web page open. Check back for more on the XO. Thanks, Robert!

Katherine ,

Thank you and Robert Nagle for the chance for a LJ testdrive of the OLPC.

Can you add pictures of all the I/O connections with your next info?

By the way, great job on the new anti-spam measures on the LJ blog system.

I will definitely add those images.

Thanks for the kind words, and I am sorry our filter caught you in its spam trap. We added some additional measures to ensure that actual humans are able to get their comments on our site. In the past the spam has been so overwhelming that legitimate comments were getting lost in the sea of spam, and there were just so many that I occasionally missed real ones while obvious spam slipped through.

I hope our tweaks eventually lead to a far friendlier system. Thanks for participating!

Update: Here are those photos

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.
