This months Cosmo

Woo hoo Gals, this months Cosmopolitan magazine is chocked full of nice tips and tricks to tantalize even the most frigid of geeks. Big Grin It looks like Ashley Simpson on the cover, but more importantly are the words: The Power of Pre-sex, Beyond Kama Sutra, His Butt, and 50 Ways to Have Fun With Your Man. I can't wait to try some of this stuff on my man!!!

The Power of Pre-Sex is this nifty article containing 5 tried and true methods for getting his motor running. It's all about tease and stimulation, or as they put it "5 Tricks that will totally rev his engine". Admit it, we don't want them wanting anyone but us right? So, number one on the hit parade is Let Him See Your Bod. According to their experts You Naked is the hottest gift for your guy, so let him soak it up and he'll sizzle to a higher temperature. It even goes so far as to suggest throwing him on the bed, straddle him, and give him a strip tease. Show a little boobie and cover it up. Show a little inner thigh and cover it up. Then when you finally do get to the point of revealing the goodies, do it nice and sloooow. Then tip two: Use Your Breath. Apparently slowly exhaling in just the right spots will create a temperature change in his skin and heighten arousal. Woooo baby. Number three is Play a little Rough. Men crave seduction as much as a woman and being aggressive or even animalistic is a "sign of lust and an indication that she's as into it as he is." They suggest siezing control and getting him into a "gotta-have-it now lip-lock." Number four: Tantalize with Touch. Cosmo contends guys liked to be touched and not just in that one area. They suggest butt massages and long but gentle scratches up and down their back. In fact mixing up hard massage and long nail strokes and surprize pinches seems to turn a fellar right on. And finally Bring him to the Brink. Yes, just what you imagine. Do what ever it is you do to bring him to the brink and then easing up, not necessarily stopping, but put off the good thing for a while. They say if you do this a few times it can really increase the pleasure of the final moment. That final one sounds like a plan, but I wouldn't classify it pre! Big Grin

This months cosmo has many many more features such as Cosmo's Condom Round-up, This year's Fun and Fearless, Confessions, and February's Cosmo Commandments. ...Available at your favorite newsstand or retail outlet.

From Raspberry Pi to Supercomputers to the Cloud: The Linux Operating System

Linux is widely used in corporations now as the basis for everything from file servers to web servers to network security servers. The no-cost as well as commercial availability of distributions makes it an obvious choice in many scenarios. Distributions of Linux now power machines as small as the tiny Raspberry Pi to the largest supercomputers in the world. There is a wide variety of minimal and security hardened distributions, some of them designed for GPU workloads. Read more

IBM’s Systems With GNU/Linux

  • IBM Gives Power Systems Rebates For Linux Workloads
    Big Blue has made no secret whatsoever that it wants to ride the Linux wave up with the Power Systems platform, and its marketeers are doing what they can to sweeten the hardware deals as best they can without adversely affecting the top and bottom line at IBM in general and the Power Systems division in particular to help that Linux cause along.
  • Drilling Down Into IBM’s System Group
    The most obvious thing is that IBM’s revenues and profits continue to shrink, but the downside is getting smaller and smaller, and we think that IBM’s core systems business will start to level out this year and maybe even grow by the third or fourth quarter, depending on when Power9-based Power Systems and z14-based System z mainframes hit the market. In the final period of 2016, IBM’s overall revenues were $21.77 billion, down 1.1 percent from a year ago, and net income rose by nearly a point to $4.5 billion. This is sure a lot better than a year ago, when IBM’s revenues fell by 8.4 percent to $22 billion and its net income fell by 18.6 percent to $4.46 billion. For the full 2016 year, IBM’s revenues were off 2.1 percent to $79.85 billion, but its “real” systems business, which includes servers, storage, switching, systems software, databases, transaction monitors, and tech support and financing for its own iron, fell by 8.3 percent to $26.1 billion. (That’s our estimate; IBM does not break out sales this way, but we have some pretty good guesses on how it all breaks down.)

  • DDoS attacks larger, more frequent and complex says Arbor
    Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks are becoming more frequent and complex, forcing businesses to deploy purpose-built DDoS protection solutions, according to a new infrastructure security report which warns that the threat landscape has been transformed by the emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) botnets. The annual worldwide infrastructure security report from Arbor Networks - the security division of NETSCOUT - reveals that the largest distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack reported in 2016 was 800 Gbps, a 60% increase over 2015’s largest attack of 500 Gbps.
