OK, so I introduced my wife to Frozen Bubble as a way to encourage her to boot into the Ubuntu partition occasionally. For a while she was so hooked on the game that I started accusing her of acting like Penny on the Big Bang Theory episode ("The Barbarian Sublimation") where Penny gets addicted to gaming and assumes the on-line persona of "Princess Penelope".

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.
