Mozilla's On The Lookout For Experienced Exterminators

The news these days is all about Firefox — including the recently-released Beta 2 of Firefox 3 a.k.a Gran Paridiso — but Mozilla is already on the move prepping for it's next greatest innovation, and they need some help.

Mozilla is seeking experienced pre-beta testers to join a new pre-release testing community. They're quick to point out this is not a project for the faint-of-heart: We would really like folks who do advanced web development using HTML, XML, CSS, JavaScript (AJAX), CSS, XML, Plugins (Flash, QuickTime).

Those who believe they fit the criteria are welcome to apply through Mozilla's secure website.

For those of us who don't quite meet the pre-beta qualifications but would like to do our part to help out, the good people at Mozilla are quick to point out the myriad of options available for users at all skill levels, available through the Mozilla Quality portal.

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.
