LART, BOFH's ultimate weapon

Cool, I caught your attention. This is not a new weapon of the last state-of-the-art video game. Let me say something. I belong to a silent, big organization named the BOFH followers. Once you are an initiated sysadmin, you might join us or die (or resistance is futile, Borg’s dixit). That’s the only way to survive the lusers. I love this word: luser (loser + user). Hey, for my former users: If you are reading this, you’re not fitting in the luser category :)

Anyway, if you wanna know who is the Bastard Operator from Hell ( go and google it. Ok, about LART (Luser Attitude Readjustment Tool), it could mean almost everything from remove lusers access to delete their files and tell them that they have more space with the same disk quota (?) Those are the kind if ideas that BOFH gives to their followers. Nice. Personally I enjoy to do it to lamers XD. I think I'm not in a condition to do it again. Too much economy and finance in my mind is killing my skills.

That’s what a night of insomnia do after too-much-Indian-food buffet dinner and some new born birds in a nest outside my window, realizing that spring arrived at 4am. Now I’m writing non-sense things. And you are reading them too. Have a nice week.

Cathedral of Learning

When I first decided to come to Pittsburgh I realized that it was a box of surprises. It was the 2008's most livable city in the US, CMU is Andy Warhol's alma mater and from many others. It has a lot of bridges. And it has the 2nd tallest educational building in the world, and the weirdest.

It is the central building University of Pittsburgh, near CMU, and an historical landmark since 1926. It looks gothic and has a lot of rooms on the first two floors, from several nationalities. I found the French and Chinese pretty cool!

Somebody asked me if I’m attending to Hogwarts. The commons actually look like I’m Harry Potter’s Class 09’ .Yeah, I will be a professional witch hahaha. The view from the 33rd floor is amazing if you can get to the top (and look like a UPitt student).

Ok, need to go back to classes. Enjoy the photos ;)
