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.

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

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

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.
