Star Wars Day 2013

If you’re a geek or a nerd you probably celebrated Star Wars Day on Saturday May 4, 2013 (“May the Fourth be with you”). We got together with some friends and watched a Star Wars marathon of all 6 Episodes back-to-back, ate pizza, and did some Star Wars-themed oil paintings for fun.

Here’s the one I painted Saturday.

May the Fourth be with you, always!

Parody–iPad Mini Video

A lot of people who bought ‘the New iPad’ this year were pretty upset to see yet another iPad be released only 6 months later. But fear not, you may not have actually missed out on anything, as this parody video demonstrates.

Last, but not least…

As an IT admin, you try to protect people from bad things on the Internet.

You try telling people not to surf ‘personal’ stuff at work, but do they listen?

Nope, they do not.

And what happens when Trend Micro blocks your surfing habits when you’re logged into a Windows Multipoint Server?

EVERY EMPLOYEE on the WMS sees this message too:

Don't surf bad places on company computers, people. Especially not on WMS 2011

Nice job, dude. I tried to warn you…
