I've just got an email telling me that the October issue is out. I click on the link and it takes me to a preview page, even though I'm logged in, and no download button I can see (just a subscribe one).
On the Android app running an an Asus Transformer, I can't seem to get any menu open to allow me to download another issue either (it is working with the September one). more>>
I love my Android Tablet. (Motorola Xoom) The killer app for me is Press Reader. I get all(5) of my regions newspapers for about $10/mo uploaded to my device every morning. Sometimes I want more flavor, aka Linux Journal. I can get it, good for me. more>>
I haven't got the time to become a reader of this magazine because just after receiving my very first copy they decided "to go 100% digital", so I had to ask for a refund because I'm not even remotely interested in reading pdfs. more>>
I recommend the editor sets up a poll on the website, and see how bad this obvious resentment towards a digital subscription really is. I guess I'll read it if I find it, but I'd rather have a refund. I'd be concerned if I was an advertiser;
I couldn't possibly be adding anything new to the sentiment already expressed here, but maybe weighing in will blunt the frustration a little. Real paper is plainly *not* the same experience as virtual -- not even close. I'm not really even sure I understand the point of a commercial electronic format. more>>
I too am not happy with the new decision for electronic distribution, especially since pdf really isn't viewable on typical e-paper ereaders. One of the nice things about a magazine is that you can BRING it with you (as someone mentioned... to that special place in the house). more>>
I've reading the September issue in my Android device, through the LJ app available in the Market, and note a little big difference with the PDF version of the same issue: don't show the sample code most of the times and the same occurs with the boxed text.
FYI the device is a Samsung Galayx S II with Android 2.3 and your LJ app found in the Market.
I am not a long time subscriber and in fact I still consider myself a newbie. I have been reading LJ since December 2007 when I began the switch over to Linux. Many of the articles are over my head even to this day. Why do I keep reading LJ you might ask? I love Linux. I love what it has done for my hobby. Since Linux is free (as in beer) I have freely given Linux to others. more>>
Frankly I'm disappointed at your decision to drop the paper copy. I've been a subscriber since you started publishing and like paper media. I appreciate choice, which is why I use Linux and subscribe to your magazine - what you are doing is taking away the very choice you have so long been a proponent of. more>>
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.
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.
