      Sorry. 1) I don't know. 2) Don't think that will help. 3) Never heard of it.

      bobjonkman favorited something by fatboy: When I tried F-Droid for the first time I was a bit apprehensive and afraid of the unknown. Mainly because of Apps I won't be able to get. However, it has been such pleasure to use and it's got all the apps one could ask for. Awesome! Considering to flash […]

      Sadly, the truly anonymous Hooktube is no more. I think they were threatened with legal action around the beginning of July. Hooktube is now no more than a YouTube OEmbed in their website, which gives all the surveillance demographics to Google. See the author's @swack Tweet at https://twitter.com/swack/status/1018665375364501506 It's too bad -- the original Hooktube […]

      The first link, to Jeffrey Shallit's article is missing (a href=""), can you fix? Also, who writes Uncommon Descent? I can't find any author attribution on its pages...

The classic example of the genre being #susanalbumparty where what was meant was #SusanAlbumParty but it got misread as #Su'sAnalBumParty ;) *Note to non-UK readers: Susan Boyle is a minor celebrity singer following her appearance on a TV talent show. Also. bum is slang for bottom here.

Planning #SysAdminDay Dinner

Posted by Bob Jonkman on 28th June 2017

It’s a go! Reservations made for Friday, 28 July 2017 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Abe Erb’s at 151 Charles St, Kitchener Map.

Abe Erb’s is popular too, they’re so busy on a Friday that dinner orders are taken at 7:00pm. But I suspect they don’t mind us staying longer and enjoying their beverages…

System Administrators at the Egg Roll King Restaurant, 29 July 2016

The year is rapidly closing in on System Administrator Appreciation Day, held every year on the last Friday of July, the 28th this year. In the Kitchener-Waterloo area that means System Administrators appreciate each other with a SysAdmin Day Dinner.

Egg Roll King

Egg Roll King Restaurant

Unfortunately, my favourite restaurant Egg Roll King is doing extremely well. So well that Tony, the Egg Roll King himself, is too busy to have dine-in customers on Fridays and Saturdays.

So, unless we want to sit on the sidewalk eating take-out, we have to find a new venue.

Let’s use this poll to figure out attendance as well as venue. On Monday, 24 July 2017 at noon I’ll count the total number of responses, then make a reservation at the most popular choice. Vote early, vote often, vote for your family members and friends!

Remember, SysAdminDay Dinner is for SysAdmins, their partners, children, friends, and anyone else who appreciates SysAdmins!

This poll is closed! Poll activity:
Start date 28-06-2017 15:58:16
End date 24-07-2017 11:59:59
Poll Results:
Where should we have the Systems Administrator Appreciation Day Dinner? (Fri, 28 Jul 2017, 6pm-9pm)

If you add a new venue, leave a comment to say why you like that place.
