Ride in the Himalayas
While I was working in Bangalore, India, I started a Royal Enfield Bullet Owner's group (bullet-bangalore.org) and a few of our guys rode to the Himalayas on their bikes. They saw this interesting banner on the only tea stall at Himank, the world's highest motorable road, put up by another group of bikers before them. Take a look. The picture was taken by Sandeep Menon. —VaibhaV Sharma
Another Happy Reader
Here's a photo of my son Merit (about 26-months old) sitting on his trusty fire truck checking out my July 2005 issue of LJ. When he was done, he went back into the office and picked up an Advanced C Programming book! --Tim
Planning a big wedding is HARD. Two things I planned were having Larry Ewing's Tux on my cake (Linux is part of my life and my job) and a helicopter to take my bride and me from the ceremony to the reception. Kelly, my bride, was all for having Tux—she made the switch to Linux before I did.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
