I sent the correct answer way before the closing of contest but I didn't receive any feedback from LJ. Just because I am from Romania I am not permitted to benefit of free subscription?

No reply to correct answer

No letters today

No letters in today's video. Friday's video only tells you how to and where to submit your unscrambled letters from Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday videos.

Best of luck!

I already subscribe to the magazine which only makes me send money once a year. I'm too old and my time is too precious to play games all week. I like Linux Journal a lot (that's why I subscribe to the mag.) but I don't watch the videos very much -- I would rather have the information in writing. Thanks anyway.

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.
