    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

Sydney to Perth Lambretta Ride for Cancer Funding

Posted by Preston on 2009-06-02

One of my dear friends, Siobhán Ellis, will later this year be riding her Lambretta scooter from Sydney to Perth to help raise funds for breast and prostate cancer.

This isn’t a short trip – it’ll take Siobhán a little more than two weeks to get from Sydney to Perth. It’s around 4,000 kilometres, or just under 2,500 miles. As the crow flies, that’s around the same distance one would fly from London to Baghdad. Going coast to coast in Australia is almost as long a drive as going coast to coast in the USA, so it’s a long way to go to raise funds, and it’s a good cause.

Having recently lost a friend to cancer, I’ll be putting my money where my mouth is and sponsoring Siobhán on her epic ride.

If you’re interested in making a donation, or know someone who might be, you can check out the web site for the trip, www.lammiedrive.org.au.
