Cleveland's Key Bank is keeping its own bank balance healthy by moving much of its back-end infrastructure to Linux.
In mid-2004, Key Bank, which manages US$92.3 billion in customer assets, began replacing aging Unix servers with Intel-based Linux servers that are less expensive than sticking with pricey and proprietary Unix hardware.

KernelTrap is now offering AdSense revenue sharing on a trial basis. To participate, you will first need a Google AdSense account (follow the link within if you do not already have an AdSense account). Next, you will need tocreate a KernelTrap user account and enter your publically viewable google_ad_client ID. Finally,contribute original and relevant content to KernelTrap, and 80% of the profits generated will be automatically credited to your AdSense account. This applies to new forum postings, as well as personal blogs. Inapproriate or otherwise not relevant content will be removed, and the offending user accounts will be blocked. This is a new program that I am doing on a trial basis, if you have any problems with funds not appearing in your AdSense account please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will help track down the problem so that future funds are properly credited to your account. The goal is to encourage submission of useful original content related to Kernel development -- if instead this leads to the contribution of useless or offtopic posts, the program will be canceled.

You have to bring along either CDs or your MP3 player with you everywhere you go; and then you have to spend time sorting your music manually at each location, which I find to be a huge time waster. Even though the iPod Nanos and other similar MP3 players are very small, it still is a bit of a bother to have yet one more device in my brief case.
