ABC – Always Be Copying

A New Moto for System Administrators
I noticed that nj_dodge and ekarjala have created a flickr group ABC – Always Be Capturing possibly inspired from the sales persons favorite moto "Always Be Closing" featured in the film Glengarry Glen Ross !

So following on from recent real world System Administration experience I've thought I'd try to come up with a ABC moto for SysAdmins !

First I thought of:

  • Always Be Backing Up

but the TLA of this is ABBU instead of ABC so I then thought of changing it slighty

  • Always Be Copying
  • Always Be Cloning (too virtualisation specific ?)

are there any better ABC motos for SysAdmins ?

VOX computer & video gamer groups (GOG)

does facebook own the metro ?

Another day means yet another article about facebook in the metro !

Todays facebook story is

  • Half of firms ban facebook

Here are some other technology stories in todays metro

  • Monster website cracked !
  • Does Google have too many cookies ?
  • Arm wrestling arcade game machine breaks three players arms !
  • Extra-marital dating website says men travel 212km to have affairs while women only travel 17km !

BUT
there are plenty of other social media networks out there so why do we never hear about VOX, NING, XING in the metro ?

OR
maybe PC Pro own the metro and are slowly turning it into a daily newspaper for geeks and hackers !

Now that I would read EVERYDAY !

  • Doors open 9am at the Palm Court entrance of Alexandra Palace…
  • Talks start at 10am and run to 2pm when the hacking begins…
