      bobjonkman favorited something by guizzy: Today @mitsu and I went to a Spanish specialty grocery store, got sobressada and menorcan cheese. Then we went to an european specialty store and got stroopwaffels. And we went to Bagel St-Viateur, and got freshly made bagels (the real stuff, not New York pretenders) to enjoy with some smoked […]

      Hang in there, Dr. Sekula. Your summer somewhat mirrors mine: Conflicted about working in a Covid environment; trying to stay engaged in politics (not physics research); the loss of my father and admitting my mom to a long-term care facility where Covid mortality is high. We'll pull through, and if the future looks different from […]

      RT @steve "End of Summer, 2021" Ive gone silent in this blog. Take it as a sign of everything else that has been going on. Writing in this blog is the first thing to be sacrificed when life intervenes. Its been many months since I wrote here. Truth be told, I think I need to […]

      bobjonkman favorited something by lnxw48a1: Last year, while visiting #sonTwo and meeting #GS3 in person for the first time, I asked my daughter-in-law about smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. She said they had one of each, but she wanted more. So I ordered a few of each and they put them up. Tonight, the gas […]

      But human labour only produces surplus value when it's being exploited. If humans are paid a fair value for their labour then there is no "surplus", ie. no profit for the corporate owners. This is why I favour worker-owned co-operatives instead of capitalist-owned corporations.

      RT @lxo the greatest challenge of automation for a capitalist economy is that machines don't produce surplus value, only human labor does

#SysAdminDay Dinner, Friday 26 July 2019

Posted by Bob Jonkman on July 8th, 2019

It’s settled! See you all at Star Wok in Bridgeport Plaza, Waterloo (Ontario). Map

I’ve got to blog more. In person I’ll talk your ear off about coffee, tech, or politics, but try to get me to write just a couple of paragraphs a year, and what you get is this blog. So, here’s this year’s paragraphs:

System Administrator Appreciation Day is Friday, 26 July 2019

SysAdmin logoOn the last Friday of July people around the world appreciate their System Administrators. SysAdmins get chocolate, or cake, or ice cream, and sometimes chocolate cake with ice cream!

But in some localities, people haven’t figured out SysAdmin Appreciation Day yet, so we SysAdmins have to show them how it’s done. And since they didn’t figure it out in 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018, we’ll have to show them again in 2019!

Inviting all SysAdmins, SysAdmin Spouses, Significant Others, Partners, Friends, Family, and even complete strangers!

We’ve been to Abe Erb a few times for SysAdminDay Dinner, but perhaps we’d like to find a new spot? Make your choice, and feel free to leave comments.
