      @clacke Our #KWNPSA user group chatted with the #GetTogether developer a few months ago. He said demand for self-hosted G2G instances was minimal, and event interchange even more minimal. So #ActivityPub support on G2G has stalled, and he considers G2G more or less stable and mature.

      @lnxw48a1 Ubuntu 22.04 has way too much reliance on snaps. Can't even get a regular install of Firefox, f'rinstance, only a snap.

      That "aura" around bright objects is what I saw when I first got a cataract (clouding of the lens). It wasn't bad at first, and only in one eye, so I let it go until my vision was totally obscured in that eye. Don't do that. Get your eyes checked, and maybe a referral to […]

      bobjonkman favorited something by hypolite: Ok, that’s what I thought, thank you for the explanations. When I wear the new glasses, anything beyond a couple of feet is doubled until my eyes adjust which takes more time than with my current glasses, and then it still is almost imperceptibly blurry, although the comparison between the […]

#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.
