I can't be the only sysadmin who's afraid to run updates on April first.  Right?

700 teachers just came back from break to a brand new UI on a critical internal collaboration site. Some are lost, betrayed, and displeased.

I know I'm late to the party for finding out ubuntu's next release name, but I can't believe they passed up the opportunity to name 13.04 Rocky Raccoon  or Randy Rabbit.  Raring Ringtail just isn't as cool.

Best reddit comment I've read in awhile:

[T]he following rule will become the law: if your boot scripts use XML, you have to mail your Unix card back to Ken Thompson

So the Skylanders "portal" was prototyped using arduinos, hacked wiimotes, and random pieces from a hardware store. Sounds like DIY awesomeness.

Black connectors on a black logic board with black cables and black ends, packed into an aluminum shell in a way that would make a watchmaker proud.  Thanks Apple.  Your sense of aesthetics really makes it easy to work on these systems.

Grr.

I need to come to the public computer lab more often.  Apparently students DO treat my lab better.  This lab looks like it was used by preschoolers, without any supervision.

Also, I will no longer stress about my labs' login time. My 10-20 seconds is near instant compared to this.... over a minute? At 10am, on Friday, when no students are on campus and half the staff is on vacation? Are they serious?

Displaylink devices do, in fact, work fine in ubuntu, despite what phoronix said.  It just has issues auto configuring them, so you need to do it the old fashioned way (for now).

Visual Studio 2012 is punishing me for trying to install it on Windows 7. Going on reboot #12. At least they're clean, prompted reboots. I guess 6 cores and 8gb of ram just isn't enough to make it happy.

I just built xv for ubuntu 12.04. 

You wish you were as cool as me.  I just know it.

Tired girl, post first fishing trip. She told me it was fun. The look of disappointment is because they had the wrong chocolate milk.
