      RT @hubert I have to laugh and shake my head at Smith calling it a "Miracle on the Praries". No, you were leading in the polls pretty much the whole time. You're in a strongly conservative province. I mean, if you're saying that it's a miracle that the majority of Albertans chose to ignore your […]

      RT @blacksam I’ve been getting more into the game Gaslands with my son and also with adult friends. It’s a Mad Max-esque tabletop game where you’re expected to create your own game pieces by kitbashing with toy cars. I already have all the crafting, painting and 3d printing supplies I need from my other wargaming […]

      RT @geniusmusing @lnxw48a1 I have my own workaround for just this issue. I raise my hand to the "Stop/Hold" position. Get to a point where I can stop and leave myself a note on the next thing to do. Then let them interrupt me. I have even done this to my former boss and the […]

System Administrator Appreciation Day Dinner, 2014 Edition

Posted by Bob Jonkman on July 15th, 2014

Pictures of SysAdminDay Dinner 2014 are up!

New Venue!

The Lai Lai Chinese Restaurant, 175 West Avenue, Kitchener, Ontario Map

Sysadminus WindowservusHi Everybodeee! Every year, the last Friday in July is System Administrator Appreciation Day. A SysAdmin is the person who keeps your servers serving, your network working, and your backups, um, backed up. Most people only deal with their SysAdmin when things go wrong, but on the last Friday in July they shower their SysAdmins with gifts, chocolate cake and ice cream.

If you’re a SysAdmin, aspire to be one, are friends with or married to one, or just want to see what SysAdmins look like, come to this special Ubuntu Hour and celebrate with us.

What SysAdmins look like


Usually, we celebrate SysAdminDay in Kitchener-Waterloo with Egg Rolls and Guy Ding at the Egg Roll King Restaurant, but this year Tony and his family will be on vacation so we have to find another venue. I’ve received some good suggestions already; let me know of any others in the comments.

I know of a perfect place in St. Jacobs (Harvest Moon), seating-wise, but
no wi-fi.

What about the Williams at University Plaza? I’m just tossing out names
here…

This might be a bit out of the ordinary, but maybe we could use my house in
St. Jacobs. If it’s nice out, we could have a pool party. The pizza joint
around the corner is makes good stuff. Just a thought….

Tim Laurence suggests:

If Chinese food is in order I am a big fan of Lia Lia.

Otherwise we could grab some space at the Rum Runner. Their rooms are just
perfect for groups.

Nathan Fish offers:

Kam Yin is an excellent Chinese restaurant, family-run I believe. They don’t have a party room, though. How many are we expecting?

I don’t know, Nathan… So, Everybodeee, please register for the SysAdminDay Ubuntu Hour in Kitchener-Waterloo event on the Ubuntu LoCo Team Portal, or let me know you’re coming in the comments.

–Bob.
