THIS IS NOT A JOKE!
System Administrator Appreciation Day (I’ve heard them refered to as Geek Monkey)
July 26, 2013 in the World

The System Administrator Appreciation Day, also known as Sysadmin Day, SysAdminDay, SAD or SAAD takes place on July 26, 2013. It is a day to show appreciation for the work of sysadmins and other IT-workers. The day is celebrated annually on the last Friday in July. The Day was created by system administrator Ted Kekatos.

Ted Kekatos was inspired to create the special day by a Hewlett-Packard magazine advertisement in which a system administrator is presented with flowers and fruit-baskets by grateful co-workers as thanks for installing new printers. Kekatos had just installed several of the same model printer at his workplace. Many geek and Internet culture businesses also honor the holiday with special product offerings and contests. Various filk songs have been written to commemorate the day. The songs have reached a level of popularity where they are also covered by other performers.

A system administrator, IT systems administrator, systems administrator, or sysadmin is a person employed to maintain and operate a computer system and/or network. System administrators may be members of an information technology (IT) or Electronics and Communication Engineering department. The duties of a system administrator are wide-ranging, and vary widely from one organization to another. Sysadmins are usually charged with installing, supporting and maintaining servers or other computer systems, and planning for and responding to service outages and other problems.

All or Nothing Day
July 26, 2013 in the World

Today is All or Nothing Day! How does one observe this unique occasion? The answer to this question is different for everyone, but one thing is certainโ€”this is not a holiday to be taken lightly.

All or Nothing Day is a time to take risks and live on the edge. Live like today is your last day on earth and let your inner daredevil shine. Be sure to make peace with your enemies, spend time with your loved ones, and do something you’ve always wanted to do.

Try something new, seek an adventure, and give this day all youโ€™ve got. All or Nothing Day only happens once a year, so donโ€™t hold back!

I have been looking forward to today!!
I finally have my appointment with the Tech Monkeys tomorrow, and then hopefully I can start doing my digital artwork again. And yes, first thing I’m doing is backing up my wip’s, my personal templates, my brushes-I made for PS, and the scads of fonts! I do a lot of various digital art. I’ve even enjoyed making digital scrapbook pages, printing them out and then having them bound. I can do it for less than a mass market company and while it’s not as ‘quality’ as they offer, they are my creation. ๐Ÿ™‚

This week hasn’t been as overwhelming as the past couple of weeks, but it’s near the end of the month, and that means it’s time to do some things that I normally procrastinate on. Getting stuff done in a timely manner, and I don’t have the excuse, but the computer is dead. lol ๐Ÿ˜›

And OOOOOOOH!! For any other Social Workers out there, that are preparing for their licensing tests, and omg you are fortunate like me to have an iPhone or iPad (or both) there is a free APP- well it’s FREE till Noon today (CST) http://appsgonefree.getapp.cc/app/US/599395631

Get the AppsGoneFree iPhone app by visiting http://itunes.com/apps/appsgonefree

so have a beautiful and awesome weekend! Stay hydrated, stay cool, and Have Fun!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Sweet!!!

Happy Happy Sunday!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

So I did mention I was a bad girlie and got a new tower, aka my new home desktop computer. And woot! I’m writing this entry on the new puter!!

oh yeah! lol

So I have the two monitors, one up top, one on the bottom. Well the bottom one is actually my tv-that doubles as a comp monitor. And I’m still getting used to this wireless keyboard. It’s ergonomic, which I like. But it’s a different type of ergo keyboard. The Logitech Wave. Pretty cool actually, and when I got it, it was under $50. so if you need/want a wireless keyboard, I can give this one ***** five stars, and it comes with a wireless mouse. Bonus!

I’ll be installing my Intuos and CS 6 this upcoming Friday, my four hour day. So that I can start making art again. I’m all twitterpated in excitment. ๐Ÿ˜€ At the moment, I’m getting used to everything and seeing how Windows 8 works.

Have a great Sunday!

Positive Tuesday

Leave a comment

Woo! So yesterday was annoyance, today has to be positive. It’s just the way I am. I hate staying all meh, bleh, and yeeargh!

So the positive for having a new email address:
1) No spam!
2) No chain letters
3) No thousands of emails in my inbox, with only 18% left!
***I had gotten my email down to under 1500. Woot!! and I was going through and weeding them out daily. which segues us into reason number
4) NO MORE USELESS NEWSLETTERS!
when I get a shopping rewards card, even when I check-no email- I still get email. So Yay! no more of those!
5) Control over who has and doesn’t have the new email address. I love my friends and family. But…with that being said, I didn’t ask you to forward my email with my email addy in it for your fifteen thousand friends to start emailing me spammy junk. Seriously, people remember your email etiquette. If you are going to forward something, two options: Copy/paste into a new email. OR click forward and erase all the prior email addresses. YEAH! I copy/paste into a new email. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m sure I’ll think of more, but at the moment, these are the important ones! IMO. ๐Ÿ˜›
Still waiting on some ppl to email me, so I can ‘snag’ their addies again.

I’m still changing email address on a few sites that I really do utilize. oooh, I can to go to amazon and ebay later tonight. LOL The priorities, people! The priorities. Both carry Books!! Books I say! ๐Ÿ˜€ LOL

overall yeah, the annoyance is still slightly there, but not to degree I was having yesterday and all the positives are adding up to relieve some other stress.

Until later, keep your chin up, don’t panic, Keep Calm and Have a groovy day!
pretty cute lil posies

and day 2 of the new program…

Leave a comment

LOL ๐Ÿ˜›

You know, this could be funny or sad, depending on your perspective. I think it’s hilarious personally. I was tired last night, and went to bed at a reasonable time. After I finally stopped reading the replies on twitter and Facebook. LOL okay, the issue was more the replying to the replies if we want to get technical. ๐Ÿ™‚

And then I had some interesting dreams. I was dreaming about doing intakes with this new program. Yeah…see you have to think this is hilarious. For me it is, but it also helps me ‘learn’ faster. I’ve always done this with new jobs and stuff that takes a lot of mental work. For example in basic training, one my Drill Sergeants told us we would dream about breaking down our weapon…and I was like, yeah sure, whatever. Until, oh yeah…I had dreams about doing just that. And wooooo guess what? I could close my eyes and field strip my weapon and put it back together with my eyes still closed.

So while it didn’t help with my sleep, I’m doing much better on the actual program today and haven’t had to call the help desk, once! Woohoo!! And it’s only day 2. I told people at work, if I made it through the first day, I’d be good! *Pats self on Back* LOL ๐Ÿ˜›

So how do you learn best? Reading, listening, or hands on? Everyone has a different style of learning, and once you realize what your’s is, it really does help the stress factor.

take care and have a beautiful day! It’s a beautiful 69 degrees here in Central Indiana.- well my area. ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Happy Monday; first Monday in June! ~*~

Woot! ๐Ÿ˜€

and it’s the first day of a new software program at work. So far, not so bad. One major glitch, and then a few little glitches. But with only three hours total of training time, spread out and not all at once, I think I’m doing fine. ๐Ÿ™‚ I learn best by doing, hand’s on. So…

Goal for the day; Stay Calm, you’re doing fine.

Goal for the week; Stay Calm!

And by next Monday, I should be good. It doesn’t take a lot of learning time for me, and that’s a good thing. I’ve always been able to catch or beat the learning curve for most new software programs. Years of change and updating programs. I just need to remember to stay calm, and breathe! Everyone here is learning, so patience is the keyword of the day and most likely the month. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re all going to be fine.

till later, ya’ll have a great Monday!!

And what a Friday it looks to be…

The dark clouds are moving in slowly, there’s a line of them outside of my office window. I think it’s beautiful in a way. A little unknown fact about me, I Love Storms!! I do. And I can feel the energy building up inside of me. The migraine is slowly receding. So it’s looking to be a beautiful day for me.

and one small lil teeny rant; If you have ‘unlimited’ data, how can you reach a limit?? I’m not able to post on twitter, facebook or even here from my phone. waaah ๐Ÿ˜ฆ the wifi in the building is centralized to one location and it blocks the fun stuff, i.e. facebook and twitter. ๐Ÿ˜›

And I’m looking at my gravatar, think I need to change it… oops random thought there. lol

the calendars have all been posted, and I’m not going to password protect them. I believe we’re all adults here. If something offends you, then don’t look. Otherwise, enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

till later, Have an Awesome Friday!!
~Peace~

Email’s

1 Comment

OI and woohoo! I love receiving email’s from friends and family. But omg! I have some that go back to 2011, for a grand total of, drumroll please- 1200! Doesn’t sound like a lot does it? LOL :p

And since a lot of them are from 2011, obviously they no longer expect a reply, I might reply to some, but we’ll see. I’m actually going through and reading them. Archiving those I want to keep, Starring others so I know that they are important. Until I get a working desktop again, I’m looking at one of my larger external harddrives to save them too. Well the content in them. I have attachments of art, wip’s, pdf’s and other stuff that I feel is important.

Spring cleaning is in the air at the moment for me, and while I’ve done some physical cleaning, it now draws to the electronic cleaning, and why I mentioned all the email’s. We tend to have clutter in our lives and do not realize what is and what isn’t clutter. Email’s while necessary in some situations, are still clutter imo. And to have this many…OI! No wonder some days I feel overwhelmed when I sign into my account. So today and tomorrow are go through and delete as many as I can, reply to those that require a response, and save the images that I really want. Print off the pdf’s, punch them for a three ring binder, and read them. Trash what I don’t need and if I really want to keep the pdf – fine, then get it bound and put it on my bookshelf.

How many of you feel overwhelmed some days with all the electronic stuff; email’s, facebook-including PM’s, and all the other stuff. I belong to a few forums and well, I haven’t had time to visit any of them in the past couple of months. But… it’s just the way things are at the mo. When I can, I’ll go back, and say HI! Until then… I’ll be going through all my email’s, reviewing what needs to be kept, what I want to keep, and move on.

I’ve been feeling the blues, and part of my treatment is to unclutter my life. Get back to writing, and re-connecting with friends. I’ve started writing again, yay! I’m still in a bit of a snag in my story at the mo, and it might go another direction, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Some of my better writing has come from spur of the moment stuff. So we’ll see. Today is the first step at uncluttering some things, and then when that is accomplished, see about reconnecting with people. I’ve downloaded a twitter app for the iPhone, as I lost the other apps when I upgraded phones. weirdness if you ask me, but there was that whole issue with the iTunes I had for over seven months. So it was bound to happen. But yes, I’m back on Twitter. Tweet Tweet! Still don’t know how active I’ll be on there. When I first started, it was to RP- roleplay- with a group. That group has since disbanded, and I’m still a little perplexed at how some of the individual’s treated me afterwards. Oh well, their loss. I’m not going to sit and cry about it. It is what it is, and it’s done. But I do miss roleplaying online. Now however, I turn to writing to get that out of my system, and some days it works better. Even when I’ve hit a bit of a snag. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh and yes, I am on call today and tomorrow, and I am in my office and doing my email de-cluttering here. Nice, quiet, peaceful, no distractions…well you know. But still all in all, it’s a nice day. I have a pot of coffee to myself- that can be seen as good and/or bad. LOL ๐Ÿ˜› And so far the weather outside my window is nice. Plus I have a great parking spot today, right outside the front door, if the weather does turn bad.

I hope ya’ll are having a great day!!

**Updated to correct a few spelling errors. ๐Ÿ˜€

And woohooo!

The new iphone 5 is synced, and I didn’t lose any apps, or pix. Oh yeah, have all my contacts too. LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

and so far, I really like the new updates to the apps I’ve been playing with; facebook- able to reshare on the go now, youtube-able to share directly to facebook, twitter, mail. Still playing with some of the other apps. See what their updates have done.

Unfortunately, all the lovely hardware I have to charge the phone on, no longer works since they changed the plug in at the base of the phone. Nice way to get us to spend more moola on the chargers. So the Hello Kitty speaker I have, I can still use with my original iPod and I intend to. Sometimes you just need some awesome tunes. ๐Ÿ˜€

I did get the car/phone charger, that is a must have! As to charging while at work, just have to ensure I have the proper cable to do so, until I can find an inexpensive charger/speaker that will work with the iPhone 5 now.

other than that, nothing to drastic going on….

Friday is free hug day at Monument Circle in Indianapolis, and I truly hope to be there to give and get some free hugs! Hope to see ppl I know there.

till later, peace and hugs!

time to redecorate

I’ll be updating the theme, the gravitar and other stuff later today/tonight.

and woohooo! I’ve had a new ISP since before Christmas. However I’ve been so busy with work, having a stupid flu and fibro flare-ups, I’ve been off the net. Unless you count being on facebook via an app being on the net? LOL ๐Ÿ˜›

I hope ya’ll have had a wonderful Christmas, Holiday season.

I’ll post some of the goodies I received. Mainly practical stuff. I like it that way. ๐Ÿ™‚

So…enjoy the last day of the year! Stay warm!!
Hugs
