Linux Journal Contents #196, August 2010
Just in time for the long hot days of summer: Cool Projects. And since we're talking about the weather let's start with wview, which let's you hook up a weather station to your Linux system. OpenWRT is a perennial favorite for Cool Projects, find out how to build your own custom images, even include a media player if you like. Got an old fridge, find out how to make some Linux "fridge" mods. Plus we've got articles on using the BaseBoard4 and the Arudino. And that's just the beginning! Also in this issue: more CouchDB, Caffeine, OSWALD, Kdenlive, Transparent Firewalls, and solid-state drives vs rotational media.

Free Webinar: Linux Backup and Recovery
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.
