      RT @lnxw48a1 @geniusmusing Yeah. :-( I think the #blockwars folks may have indirectly caused this. There are people who file complaints against client apps that don’t build in blocklists against specific servers whose moderation policies they dislike. I think that #Matrix / #Element competes with one or more Google-owned chat-type services. Since they gatekeep the […]

      And I can't figure out how to connect to a particular server. The #Patchwork #SSB client I'm using has a "+ Join Server" field, but it requires an invitation code. Which I can't generate unless I have a pub server. Which I can't join until I have an invitation code... Sigh. #SSB: Concept: A+ ; […]

      I was on #SSB Secure Scuttlebutt for a while (attended an #SSB seminar at last year's LibrePlanet conference), but the application was so resource intense that my laptop couldn't keep up. And, there wasn't the network effect I needed to make it useful. While there are probably interesting people to converse with, I have no […]

      Oh, hang on. It's @joeyh who reveals the inadequacy of #journalism. Not the article author, @Jonemo@twitter.com #ReadingComprehension

      @lnxw48a1 writes "In this post, Joey H. accidentally reveals a major reason why #news_media / #journalism is so bad today." This didn't leap out at me. Is it because good, in-depth reporting requires A LOT of research and hard work, and that modern journalism is adequately rewarded by re-Tweeted sound bites?

      What an excellent #LongRead article! "Exploring the Supply Chain of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines" https://blog.jonasneubert.com/2021/01/10/exploring-the-supply-chain-of-the-pfizer-biontech-and-moderna-covid-19-vaccines/

      That was much better than I expected it to be. Covers the spectrum of opinions of several #ITSec professionals, and does not strike an alarmist note. Sadly, somewhat devoid of practical advice, tho. https://www.hipaajournal.com/hipaa-password-requirements/

#SysAdminDay Dinner 2018 at Abe Erb in Kitchener

Posted by Bob Jonkman on July 6th, 2018

Sorry, no pictures from this year’s SysAdminDay Dinner. But you can enjoy some from the previous years’ collection in the gallery.

SysAdminDay

SysAdminDay

Every year, the last Friday in July is System Administrator Appreciation Day, or SysAdminDay for short (SysAdmins are efficient — why waste syllables?)

System Administrators manage the networks, configure the servers, and make backups for their users. On System Administrator Appreciation Day those users have the opportunity to appreciate their System Administrators by gifting them with chocolate cake and ice cream. But just in case that doesn’t happen, the SysAdmins in Waterloo Region take themselves and their spouses, friends and relations to dinner. Remember how SysAdmins make backups?

Join us at the Abe Erb Brew Pub and Restaurant again this year on Friday, 27 July 2018 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm, meet with other SysAdmins, share funny PEBKAC stories, and have some dinner and a beverage.

You don’t have to be a SysAdmin to come to the SysAdminDay Dinner — Everybody’s welcome! SysAdmins-In-Training, Retired SysAdmins, even people just curious to know what an array of SysAdmins looks like.

See you at the SysAdminDay Dinner!

What: System Administrator Appreciation Day Dinner
When: Friday, 27 July 2018 starting at 6:00pm iCal
Where: Abe Erb Restaurant at The Tannery
Location: 151 Charles Street West, Kitchener, Ontario Map

Leave a comment to let me know if you’re coming, so I can make a reservation at Abe Erb.

–Bob.
