"Where the heck is my flying car?"
Tom Limoncelli

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.  Where did
we go wrong and what can we do to solve the problem?  Tom will talk
about recent epiphanies he's had about "best practices" in system
administration, mostly brought about by his recent experience visiting
some of the largest and smallest networks in the world.  (And he has a
lot to say about Apple OS X Server.)
He's also working on a new book about time management for sysadmins, and
will be treating us to some excerpts!

Tom Limoncelli is Director of IT Services at Cibernet Corp.  Co-author
of "The Practice of System And Network Administration", which has become
"standard equipment" for employees at OSDN/Slashdot, Google, and many
other companies.  He was previously at Lumeta, Bell Labs/Lucent, and is
a frequent speaker at Usenix/LISA conferences.  This is his second
BayLISA appearance.
BayLISA meets every month on the 3rd Thursday of the month.  A short
period of announcements of general interest to the sysadmin community is
presented, followed by a technical talk.  Anyone may make an
announcement; typical are upcoming presentations, user group meetings,
employment offers, etc.
