I would like to bring to light GridRepublic ( to those who want to use BOINC or do use BOINC. It provides an easy way to get started and a great way to discover new projects. Its aim is to bring BOINC to the mainstream public, but is a good all around use and could use some computer and web savvy people to help accelerate their efforts. If you want to help multiple projects and/or have multiple computers running BOINC it allows you to manage what is run from the website with a single login rather than for each project having to login on separate websites to manage the details. GridRepublic is a nonprofit working in collaboration with BOINC to make joining and participating simple. Enjoy!

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.
