Wiggly Windows

I love Compiz. I won't lie to you. Sometimes, however, I worry that it's making me a dumber employee. Sure, my coworkers may play their Windows Solitaire for hours on end, but I just grab my browser window and shake it like a dog to watch it jiggle. And I like it.

When the Windows user playing solitaire on company time is the one looking more intelligent, I worry. Darn you Linux for being so fun...

I know what you mean. My wife doesn't get it either. When I first got Compiz to work with Fiesty, I was overjoyed. I couldn't stop talking about how cool it was. She kind of just smiled and gave me that, "I married a geek" look. But COME ON! The windows JIGGLE for goodness sakes!

In fact, my wife walked into our bedroom last night, and said, "What are you doing?" For some reason, she didn't think the jiggly windows were quite as fascinating. What a n00b. ;)

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.
