Please don't take this the wrong way, as I am sure you only doing a small
public service here.  But, I am already subscribed to the NCSA lists.  I
would suggest that you do not need to continue to forward another list's
anouncements.  If people want them they can subscribe themselves.  But I
really don't need one from them and one from trilug.  I wish maybe that
you would post a thread with the virtues of the NCSA list, but then let
those who want their list subscribe themselves.  I am not trying to be a
snotty prick here so please don't take it that way.

> Abstract:
> It's 2004 and we still don't have moving side-walks or flying cars,
> and computers aren't nearly as cool as they were on The Jetsons. Tom
> has visited many sites in the last few years and observed a lot of
> really bad IT practices. He will discuss what he saw and some recent
> epiphanies he's had about "best practices" in system administration.
> The second half of the talk will be about his current project to
> update a small company's IT  infrastructure. It has forced him to
> rethink what constitutes the "basic infrastructure" of an IT
> organization, and how big companies are held back when they forget the
> basics.  He's also working on a new book about "time management for
> sysadmins", and will be treating us to some excerpts!
