      I do like Harold Lloyd better, but his ideas on #Copyright and protecting his films have landed him in obscurity compared to other artists who were more lenient (or lost their copyright due to interfering management)

      Never mind what happens when you try to distill your own alcohol - it's even illegal to own the equipment to do it!

      That's my point - try to buy alcohol somewhere else, and *armed guards* at the border will take it away and throw you in jail for bringing in more than what they figure will have a minimal impact on government revenue.

      That's because you live in #Ontario, where #alcohol sales are a government-controlled and -owned monopoly. Because alcohol sales are a revenue-generator for the government they set the price *way* above production costs. After all, how much could it possibly cost to let some potatoes ferment in a bucket?

System Administrator Appreciation Day Dinner

Posted by Bob Jonkman on 10th July 2012

Pictures are up!

300 new servers? By next Tuesday? Sure, no problem!

System Administrators install servers

System Administrator Appreciation Day falls on 27 July this year, a global celebration of System Administrators around the world. To see what System Administrators do, have a look at some of the systems they have to administer.

After the KWLUG meeting in July, Becky asked me where System Administrator Appreciation Day is being held. “It’s a global event”, I said, but Becky was hoping for something a bit more local. So we decided to have a System Administrator Appreciation Day Dinner. What better way for System Administrators to celebrate than by treating ourselves to dinner?

If you can read this, thank a System Administrator

System Administrators maintain web sites

So, if you’re a System Administrator, married to one, or good friends come join us!

Friday, 27 July 2012 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm iCal

Your computer ate all your files? I can fix that!

System Administrators make backups

If you’re planning on coming, let me know by e-mail or in the comments by Wednesday 25 July so that I can reserve enough seats and egg rolls for everyone.
