      bobjonkman favorited something by fitheach: @bobstechsite Ouch!Cheapskate suggestion: leather welding gloves can be bought for £5, or less, and work better than oven mits. They even come in nice colours like red and amber.

      "Head ... scythe ... suggestion..."

      I fully expect LawnMowerMan to be back in 20 minutes or so with a leaf blower (gasoline powered, of course) making a third round of the property to make sure that every severed blade of grass is on the road, not on the lawn.

      Of course, the Bobcat skidsteer couldn't get anywhere close to the garden shed, the fence posts, the trees and shrubbery. So now LawnMowerMan is back with a ginormous weed whacker (gasoline powered, of course), and making another round of the property to make sure every blade of grass is less than 1.8in high.

System Administrator Appreciation DaySysAdmin logo falls on the last Friday of July every year, and is allegedly celebrated by users gifting their SysAdmins chocolate cake and ice cream. Hands up, those of you who have actually experienced that? Hmmm? I thought so…

Nobody appreciates System Administrators more than other System Administrators, so for the last few years I’ve hosted a Systems Administrator Appreciation Day Dinner in Kitchener-Waterloo. Last year we went to LaiLai’s, and previously we’ve gone to Egg Roll King.

SysAdminDay is on Friday, 31 July 2015, just over two weeks away. Where would you like to go this year? Potential venues must offer vegetarian fare, and be physically accessible. Leave suggestions in the comments or send me e-mail, then next week we can vote. If there’s more than one candidate on the list we’ll rank choices from 3 points (most favoured) to 1 point (least favoured), and I’ll add them up, post the results here, and we’ll all meet for dinner.

SysAdminDay Dinner is open to everyone, whether you’re a System Administrator, a SysAdmin Student, or a former SysAdmin who’s been lured to the dark side. And also their friends, family, and end-users. OK, maybe not the end-users. Unless they’re friends or family.

See you on 31 July!
–Bob.
