Limoncelli's time mgt videos

Author Tom Limoncelli has collected his Time Management for System Administrators videos in one place. Watch the videos, read the book.

System administrators have abnormal time and task management needs. Tom does a great job of addressing those along with the normal time management stuff.

I recommand Time Management for System Administrators as a supplimental book for my system administration classes and plan to start using some of Tom's videos in class.

Linux paid internship in Scottsdale

There's a post on the PLUG site about a paid Linux internship in Scottsdale.

A Scottsdale company is looking for someone to fill a paid Linux Internship. This requires knowledge in Red Hat based distros with a "nice to have" in LAMP type setups. The candidate would report directly or perhaps indirectly, to Mike Ballon; the position does have a good possibility of becoming full time.

Annual PLUG party

Every year PLUG has an end of year party for the December east side meeting.

We encourage bringing family and friends. This is a social event with no presentations. We will have some giveaways including some new Free Software comics.

We also encourage bringing some food to share.

No alcohol because the meeting is at a school.

This will be the only in person PLUG meeting this month, so turn out and participate.

Buy Nothing, Do Something

It's a time for over-consumption, our annual food coma. It's also a time for family and friends. We should remember those near us that might not have family in the area.

Let's be thankful both for the good things in our lives and that the bad things really aren't all that bad for most of us celebrating Thanksgiving.

Many of us also get Friday off. Remembering that it's a holiday for family and friends we should avoid going out into the consumptive crowds. Instead we should spend the day doing something for our community.

new security lab

PLUG is starting a new security lab on the second Saturday of every month. We'll be meeting from noon until 15:00 at UAT.

A security tool will be presented and then we'll work on using it. Bring a laptop and be prepared to use Live CDs to experiment with various Free Software security tools.

Thanks to UAT for providing a space for us to meet and especially for allowing us to run a security lab on their network.
