Control: Either you have it--or you don't. Two words, "Either Or," are particularly appropriate when describing, owning, and handling the great majority of horses that buck. Either they do it because they're scared or because they're defiant. Either you're the type of person who takes on the challenge with a gleam in your eye or you have a bad stomach over the very idea. Either your barn friends think you should sell the animal because they feel embarrassed for you and your odd excuses for why you exercise it via hand walks and turnout and never a ride on the trail -- or they're pretty sure you don't realize the risk you take each time you hop aboard and they're considering an equestrian intervention. And either you've got a plan to fix it--or you do not. Make that "did not." "Did not have a plan." Because now you do. You've got this guide and so you've got a plan and with it a solution. This book, "Crow Hopper's Big Guide to Buck Stopping," falls into four sections: Section I: Learn the ground work required to begin snuffing out this deep-rooted issue. Given that "you ride the horse you lead," you'll begin your fix with your feet planted safely on terra firma. You'll gain confidence--and control. Section II: Learn to see a buck coming and what to do if it happens, then get back in the saddle for exercise after exercise designed to put you in charge and prevent future problems. Section III: Perform exercises geared to address immediate and specific bucking issues: Bucking into the canter, how to deal with your own fear, crossing obstacles, the horse that crow hops when first introduced to the saddle. Section IV: Training appropriate for every horse and rider--and an absolute must for those schooling the bucking horse. (See the Table of Contents for a complete listing.) Your horse isn't going to buck if you have control. Your task, then, becomes gaining that control, understanding when you have it, knowing when you don't, working to get it. Table of Contents: Section I, Ground Training - When You Really Lose It: If your horse went ballistic last week, it didn't just "happen." Spot the signals. - Where I'd Start: Bucking horse owners, here's something you can do with your horse that advances his training, is low risk, and fun. - Whoever Moves First, Loses (Or, "How to Get Respect"): Secure your rightful spot as leader in your "herd of two." - Bridle Work from the Ground: Develop control over your horse's individual body parts and gain respect - Reverse of Respect: Backing your horse is an excellent way to affirm (or establish) your position as leader - Lungeing a Horse for Added Control: With added training for the bucking horse, here is the how, when, and why of lunge-line training Section II, Fixes from the saddle and preventative medicine - Your Individual Prescription - Ride Where You Can, Not Where You Can't - Core Exercises (Introduced) - Despooking: Scary Things - Despooking: Scary Moments - Getting Back On: What to Do If the Horse Bucks - Hip Control - Classic Serpentine - Softening - Calm Down Now: Drop Your Horse's Head on Command - Speed Control for Mind Control - Shoulder Control - Train Your Horse to Travel Straight Section III, Questions answered: Specific and immediate fixes for the bucking horse owner - Horses that Buck When First Introduced to the Saddle - How Can I Overcome My Fear After Being Bucked Off? - My horse wants to buck or crow hop when going from a trot to a canter. - Crossing Creeks and Scary Stuff Section IV, Training for every horse and rider--and an absolute must for those schooling the bucking horse - Each Time You Mount Up, Do This First - How to Pick Up Your Reins Like a Pro - Training Magic: Release on the Thought - Reins Tell Direction, Legs Tell Speed - Talking Horse - Perfect the First Time - How Do I Keep My Horse's Attention? - Is the Cinch Strap Causing the Trouble? - Is My Horse Hard to Train...

To the outside world, a "supercomputer" appears to be a single system. In fact, it's a cluster of computers that share a local area network and have the ability to work together on a single problem as a team. Many businesses used to consider supercomputing beyond the reach of their budgets, but new Linux applications have made high-performance clusters more affordable than ever. These days, the promise of low-cost supercomputing is one of the main reasons many businesses choose Linux over other operating systems.This new guide covers everything a newcomer to clustering will need to plan, build, and deploy a high-performance Linux cluster. The book focuses on clustering for high-performance computation, although much of its information also applies to clustering for high-availability (failover and disaster recovery). The book discusses the key tools you'll need to get started, including good practices to use while exploring the tools and growing a system. You'll learn about planning, hardware choices, bulk installation of Linux on multiple systems, and other basic considerations. Then, you'll learn about software options that can save you hours--or even weeks--of deployment time.Since a wide variety of options exist in each area of clustering software, the author discusses the pros and cons of the major free software projects and chooses those that are most likely to be helpful to new cluster administrators and programmers. A few of the projects introduced in the book include: MPI, the most popular programming library for clusters. This book offers simple but realistic introductory examples along with some pointers for advanced use. OSCAR and Rocks, two comprehensive installation and administrative systems openMosix (a convenient tool for distributing jobs), Linux kernel extensions that migrate processes transparently for load balancing PVFS, one of the parallel filesystems that make clustering I/O easier C3, a set of commands for administering multiple systems Ganglia, OpenPBS, and cloning tools (Kickstart, SIS and G4U) are also covered. The book looks at cluster installation packages (OSCAR & Rocks) and then considers the core packages individually for greater depth or for folks wishing to do a custom installation. Guidelines for debugging, profiling, performance tuning, and managing jobs from multiple users round out this immensely useful book.
