No matter what the first word might be (proud, precocious, pervasive, pompous, pedantic, prophetic) the second word should be PENGUIN! :-)

Waiting for "R"

corfy's picture

I wasn't that concerned with 12.04, but if the schedule holds, 13.04 "R" will be released on my birthday. I'm hoping (although rather doubt it) that the animal in question that release is "raccoon", which is my favorite animal (note the raccoon in my avatar).

If someone was going to use "perverted" should have combined it to make "Perverted Pig" hehehe.

I'm surprised nobody is using some powerful animals like Panther or Puma.

What about Poignant Porcupine?

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.
