Fantastic talk!

Went to see Rafe Esquith's talk at ChangingHands tonight.

In the end the place was jam packed. Employees kept pulling out chairs for those standing around. Before the talk they'd filled in all the empties. It was great to see so many people turn out for his presentation.

We weren't disappointed. Rafe's a great speaker. He's got lots of interesting stories from 24 years of teaching. He also brought along an ace. Well, several of them.

Rafe brought several of his students from the lady two years. They played music before the talk started. After Rafe talked for a while he turned the stage over to the students for performance time. They really seemed to enjoy what they were doing. That coupled with doing a good job of the performances made for great entertainment. If one looked closely, one could see it was also an opportunity to learn...

Rafe Esquith coming to Changing Hands!!!

Rafe Esquith will be at Changing Hands in Tempe Thursday night!

Rafe is credited with being an outstanding teacher who inspires his students to greatness. His first book, "There Are No Shortcuts" is a fantastic, inspiring read. I've already bought 20 copies of it and have just purchased another 10 because I keep giving them away to educators. One book recipient now requires teachers to read "There Are No Shortcuts" before she'll agree to be their mentor.

first PLUG awards

We have a Town Hall meeting tonight in IRC and I'm planning on giving out the first PLUG award by posting an image here.

Scan of award certificate for Integrum thanking them for supporting PLUG.

One year of LOPSA

Today, 14Nov2006, LOPSA is having its one year anniversary!

Congrats to LOPSA for all of its accomplishments in just one year.

Thanks to all the volunteers ( and let's not forget that the LOPSA board members are also all vounteers ) who've worked so hard to make LOPSA a success! Thanks also to the sponsors who've supported LOPSA and all its many activities.

LOPSA formed and immediately built active mailing lists with lots of good sysadm content. A couple of weeks later LOPSA had a strong presence at LISA. Many LOPSA members actively work to make LISA happen, so that was no big surprise :).

MARS rocks

PLUG east side meeting tonight. We have presentations on IRC, gNewSense and GIMP tricks.

We also have a good turnout tonight.

We had a great turnout at last month's east side meeting as well. For that one we had Noel in from the ASU Mars project talking about his work with satellites and the mars rovers.

That was a great presentation. Lots of cool pictures and stories! He mentioned that his group asked for rocks to be mailed in and they'll examine them with the same instruments that are on the rovers. That's pretty cool. He says they've gotten 3,000 rocks ( and a few other things ) mailed in.

Sysadmin Days blog

Chris is writing a blog of LOPSA's Sysadmin Days Phoenix.

Geschäfte Eintragen

Das AZBizNetz Site ist schon lange bereit.

Heute habe ich ein Paar Leute geemailt und gebeten ihre Firmen in den Firmenverzeichnis zu eintragen.

Einer hat Probleme, denn URL wurde nur mit http:// oder https:// richtig behandelt. Ich habe's korriegiert. Jetzt wird URL ohne Protokolbezeichnung wird als http behandelt.

Ich habe auch notiert, daß das Logo ein Bild sein muß.

Sysadmin Days

LOPSA's Sysadmin Days starts on Monday. The rest of the weekend is going to be spent getting ready for that.

We've got a nice program and I'm really looking forward to the training.

Freewill: what a show!

It took more than 4 hours, but Freewill played 30 songs for us tonight!


Great music played fantastically with an insane dedication, for which we are grateful.

Freewill does an outstanding job covering Rush. Tonight they gave us at least one song from each studio album.

Rush fans should go see Freewill if the chance comes up.

Thanks to the guys in the band and all the men and women behind the scenes that made the concert happen!

Freewill tonight

Freewill concert tonight! I've really been looking forward to it and it looks like they've got quite the experience setup for us.

I need to reinstall a calendar module, so I can post things like this.

Maybe I can win one of Geddy's dryer shirts :).
