Why do baby products come packaged with so many baby choking devices? I'm talking about the little plastic fasteners that we normally associate with attaching a cardboard tag to products in stores. The ones that you rip in two and invariably lose one half before you can get it in the trash. Those things.
Aren't they obviously a baby choking hazard? Small enough for a baby to pick up. If a baby can pick it up, it will go in the baby's mouth. That's fairly automatic.

Happy 11th annual Sysadmin Day. Once again I get to celebrate it as a sysadmin. I also get to celebrate it by starting the workday 2 hours before midnight...
I also get to celebrate by taking my baby for playtime at the gym. It'll be a great day :).
I've been using these techniques a lot for my classes. I'm using a new classroom and paperwork issues are restricting my laptop to either being on the classroom network ( which I need as it provides resources for class ) or on the Internet ( which I need as I access the Internet for those resources I pull from my laptop ). I need both at the same time, but can only get one at a time.
The Arizona Rattlers moved the home opening to Friday, 2010Apr16, and have decided to give away all of the tickets to the game. They claim this is the first time in history that all of the tickets for a pro-game have been given away. See the announcement for info on where and when to get the tickets.
The home opener is against the Chicago Rush, which is different than this RUSH, which will also soon be on the road.
A local radio interview in Phoenix reported that the census has lots of openings in Arizona. It was mentioned that the jobs generally pay about $15.50 per hour. Apparently, they're not getting enough applicants.
See the census jobs site for info on applying.
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.
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.
