5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

The Register has stumbled across what appears to be the perfect holiday for anyone who wants to combine their love of walking and beer with the delights of Linux. The Linux Beer Hike (Die Linuxbierwanderung, or LBW) is an annual event, we're told, and this year it's being held at Coniston, in England's Lake District from 30 July to 6 August. Beer swilling Linux walkers will yomp up and down hills during the day and then exercise their minds in the evening with seminars and group sessions on a variety of Linux issues. According to the LBW Web site, you do not have to go on any of the hikes, drink beer or even know much about Linux, but it helps if you have interest in at least one of the three areas. Some 60 people turned up to a similar event last year. ® Link To find out more and to register for this healthy hiking holiday, go here
