Proposal: How to do DRM

"The customer needs to experience the software first-hand without reduced functionality during the trial" is a phrase that Microsoft uses on several marketing sheets. What that means is that trials should only be limited by time, not in WHAT you can do during that time. That got me thinking....

Tux enters the Indy 500

You might think if someone were to mention Linux at the Indianapolis 500, they would be talking about Linux in an embedded system or powering a server tracking information about the race. You'd be wrong. Instead, there's a group seeking to fund an Indy racer in the name of Linux. The group was started by Ken Starks, also known as Helios, the founder of Linux marketing site and author of the well-known Linux opinion site Blog of Helios. With the Tux 500 program, Starks, Bob Moore, and Ted Woerner aim to see to it that when the flag drops on the 2007 Indianapolis 500, a race car emblazoned with Linux decals will be roaring down the track.

tux500 is a pump-and-dump scam

If it sounds too fishy that $350,000 dollars is needed to put a sticker on a racecar in the Indy 500, that's because there's no car, no sticker, no Indy connection, but a couple of crooks.

Back Up (And Restore) LVM Partitions With LVM Snapshots

  • HowtoForge; By Falko Timme (Posted by falko on Apr 17, 2007 8:07 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux
This tutorial shows how you can create backups of LVM partitions with an LVM feature called LVM snapshots. An LVM snapshot is an exact copy of an LVM partition that has all the data from the LVM volume from the time the snapshot was created. The big advantage of LVM snapshots is that you do not have to worry about open files and database connections, and you do not have to interrupt/halt services on the live partition because a snapshot is usually created in fractions of a second, so your users will not notice any disruption, and your snapshot holds consistent data.
