Linux Journal Issue #188/December 2009

If last month's Infrastrucuture issue was too "big" for you then try on this month's Embedded issue. Find out how to use Player for programming mobile robots, build a humidity controller for your root cellar, find out how to reduce the boot time of your embedded system, and if you're new to embedded systems find out the basics that go into one. You can also read about the Beagle Board, the Mesh Potato and a spate of other interestingly named items. And along with our regular columns don't miss our new monthly column: Economy Size Geek.

How Do I download Archives?

golf4fun's picture

I am a subscriber to magazine [hard copy] and registered a user account but the archives do not seem easily accessable

Not Downloadable

The archives are not meant for download, they're meant for online viewing. If you want a local copy the best thing to do would be to get our Archive CD.

Ok, but what about for

Ok, but what about for subscribers of both the hard-copy and digital download bundle-pack? I didn't download last month's until this month's email came, so now I can't figure out how to get last month's issue.

Thanks!

See your subscription account

Goto your subscription account and login, then look for the digital downloads link.

Cool! Thanks. That worked

Cool! Thanks. That worked great!

I had previously found the URL, but didn't realize that the "Digital Downloads" was the right link. That url is a little heavily biased towards subscription renewal on first visit. Even clicking on the Digital Downloads link (hidden in that rather tiny menu at the bottom of the page) doesn't visually change the page enough. It's dominated by the LJ-number/Zip-Code explanation, so the relatively subtle mid-page sub-title change seems a lot like those "Find Six Differences in These Two Pictures" games from the Saturday funny papers :)

But, then, difficulty in finding the proper Login/Download link for the Digital Downloads is a charge that could also be fairly leveled at another Linux publication (of the "Pro" persuasian, in the USA at least), too.

Luckily, the Linux Journal magazine issues are awesome, once the heiroglyphics are decoded to get it!

Thanks much to you and the Linux Journal staff for all the hard work!

will see what can be done

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. 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.

Webinar
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.
