2/23    Look, Angry Sysadmin has his own following now:
        \_ have our cities turned into free-fire zones yet?

2/25    iTunes has two job openings for production support engineers. It's
        mostly chasing production issues so that the engineers don't have to.
        Lots of SQL, some scripting, no actual coding. Pager required. Sorry
        if I'm not selling it. Check the website or email me if you're
        interested. -abe
        \_ can we do this remotely?
        \_ an aside, not derogatory, but in the effort to understand terms
           is (in general) a Prod. Support. Eng. basically Help desk guy++
           for that specific product?
           \_ Yes.
           \_ the lack of answer already made a deep impression for me WRT
              to working for Steve Jobs the Crazy Slave Master.
              \_ Or the fact that soda's not as reliable as it used to and
                 I hadn't logged in for several days. If you're interested,
                 send me an email. As for slave driving, the hours at Apple
                 seem to vary greatly by group, and even within groups.
               \_ Good reading RE: Slavedriving at Apple:
        \_ Is Apple really a slave shop? I am thinking of applying for a
           Director of Ops job there, how many hours a week would this guy
           expect to put in?

2/23    Gee, let's run a list of skiers and skates who died in the past week
        or two:
        2/12: Nodar Kumaritashvili
        2/25: C. R. Johnson.
        Who else?
        \_ 2/25 my desire to give a damn
        \_ What is your point? Skiing is dangerous. Sliding down a chute of ice
           at 90 mph is dangerous.
           \_ But I don't usually hear about one death every two weeks in the
              news.  -- OP
              \_ gee that's interesting.
              \_ They only reported Johnson's death so widely cuz: skiing is in
                 the news for the olympics, and Julia Mancuso knew him and
                 tweeted about his death before her last GS run.
                 \_ I see.  -- OP
