What it's all about . . .

Ever wonder why a guy like me writes all these articles, pens all these books, gives talks at trade shows, universities, or appears on radio and television. It's not the fame and glory (there isn't much anyhow). No, it's something entirely different.

I have a few more shirts, but I thought it best to stop when I did. -- Marcel

Thanks for being consistently funny, informative, and always interesting. One of the few remaining bright spots in LJ. If all you need are a few t-shirts, I'll send you some myself!

Apologies in advance if I double-post- the first one got flagged as spam many hours ago and still hasn't appeared.

ps- the captcha sux. Too hard to read.

Your articles are about all that keep me buying LJ anymore. Keep up the great work, and if all you need to be happy is t-shirts, I'll send you some myself!

PS- no French accent?? I am so disillusioned!!

It's a chameleon. Interesting considering you changed your "colors" so frequently in the video.

White Paper
Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
