Do you hate Windows?

Do you love Linux?

Do you love open-source?

Apache… Tomcat… MySQL… JSP, PHP, Perl, etc…

We need a Linux Server Admin!


Sammy says we need Iñtërnâtiônàlizætiøn! Iñtërnâtiônàlizætiøn!

There is even a Survival guide to i18n. (Did you know that “i18n” is an abbreviation for “Iñtërnâtiônàlizætiøn”? Ha! It’s not! It’s really an abbreviation for “Internationalization”! Gotcha!)

Anyway, it’s totally important and stuff….

All I want for Xmas is to go sledding, because the need for speed is not just found in people who use WordPress and PHP and MySQL, but in people who own sleds and live by hills and want to risk their lives…

Look out for that tree!!!

Seriously now, look out for trees… My friend died from hitting a tree but she was on an innertube, not a sled, which has very little in the way of steering control. Still, a simple PSA (that’s Public Service Announcment) Please look out for trees when sledding!!!

Man oh man, it’s cold out! And worse yet even then… the heat in the car only works if I jam a stick against the heating dial in the car, so Ihave to slide the seat up and do so like so:

Heat is güd!

This is a test of

is güd!

<html> is güd!

How did that work?

I’m pretty sure the guys writing the code hate me… (Not the code here at, that’s all quite lovely.) I mean the code in an application I am testing. They write code, I break it. They write code, I break it. They write code, I break it. They write code, I break it, they threaten to have me beaten with a pillowcase full of batteries…

Such is the cycle of software development…
