Linux Journal Issue #178/February 2009

Stop me before I program again! Well, at least stop me till I get a chance to read this month's Linux Journal and find out all the latest related to Web Development. Don't write another line of JavaScript till you get a chance to check out our articles on Dojo drawing tools and jQuery. If you're just plain tired of JavaScript, maybe it's time to look at the Google Web Toolkit—get some of the hottest JavaScript on the planet without writing a single line of JavaScript (you read that right). If you're a Ruby type, get further faster and look good while you're at it with ActiveScaffold. And, if you're looking for some new site creation tools, don't miss this month's Cooking With Linux column. If you've got some extra coin and need a Netbook, see our review of the Dell Mini 9. If you're looking for a portable media player, see our review of the Archos 5. For you Second Life fans, see our introductory article on the game and its open-source nature. And, if you're a reeeeaaaaaal Second Life fan we have an extra special treat for you: we put your picture on the cover!

parl's picture

I was exceedingly impressed with the leather and Levi clad simulacrum twink on the cover of the February issue, especially his well formed legs and impressive package. I am pleased that you are now appealing to a new audience and can see some follow-ups to this pic. How about a co-op ad joining Silicon Mechanics and Speedo or even Michael Phelps (in his usual uniform) demonstrating the Happy Hacker keyboard. I'll be renewing my subscription ASAP just to encourage you to keep up the good work.

With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

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.
