sugar-powered fuel cell has 10 times the energy storage capacity of lithium-ion batteries used now in electric cars. :) This cell is refillable with a solution of maltodextrin; among its byproducts are electricity and water.  More info at ► goo.gl/t9UypD.

Recipe of the Day: Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

For a stunning Easter dessert, look no further than Alton's moist carrot cake, enrobed with his fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting for an extra-sweet finish: http://bit.ly/1i4Zoyd.

Seriously people haven't large companies learned that you need to have systems like this setup to be in redundant locations for exactly this reason.  You shouldn't need to execute your DR Plan to fix this kind of problem.  #beancounterFail

  • Linuxinstall.net
    Founder, 2009 - present
    I wanted to put up stories and insights I thought people would enjoy. So I started a website and then recruited Mr. Leuzzi and Mr. Martin to round it out. We have fun. Try to be on a regular schedule. But hey we have lives and work to do. Check it out though we have fun and rant awesomely.

    This space intentionally left blank.
  • Westfield Insurance
    WebSphere/Linux/Unix Technology Lead, 2005 - 2011
    I lead an amazing team of Linux and WebSphere Tech's. We began automating our infrastructure when I started there. Within the 5 years I was there the team managed to drop build times from 4-5 days to 4-5 hours. So, yes DevOps works and will save your company time and money. We were so fast at building the environment that before I left the plan was to rebuild rather than restore the servers in a Disaster Recovery situation.

  • XCaliber Technologies

    TIP: Never start a company with 6 of your friends all as equal partners. Someone needs to take more risk and receive more reward. That person also needs to set direction.

Story

Linux it's not just a job it's an adventure
Introduction
I started working with *nix in while a student at Kent State University in the early 90's.   In 1995, as an E-Mail Administrator for Caliber Technology (now part of Fedex) I was tasked with administering Sendmail on both Slackware Linux and Solaris Systems. My first home install of Linux was MkLinux DR1 in 1996 on my 60 Mhz PowerMac.  Since then I have been working and consulting on Linux and it's uses in the Enterprise to support everything from E-Mail, Firewalls, Web and File serving to custom cluster solutions and grid solutions.  I have had the opportunity to work in both Fortune 500 companies and small 2 person organizations.  This has given me the unique insight into the differences every size business faces.

  • Kent State University
    Psychology/MIS, 1990 - 1995
    Yep couldn't decide what to do. Ended up doing computers. I used to think I would finish out my degree someday. Now I am not so sure there would be a benefit.
  • Kenston High School
    1987
    It was fun. I did time as a high school DJ on our over the air Radio station. We were pumping out a whole 100 Watts. But we covered most of Cleveland.
