Stalking Punkie's Thoughts  
My latest brain droppings

  • 23:45 Up late again, database server reboot went wrong. #
  • 23:47 I am looking forward to tomorrow, though: taking a daughter to work Not my daughter, but she'll do. :) #
  • 11:05 twitpic.com/3ty9n - Borrowing a daughter for Take Your Daughter to Work Day #
  • 11:06 I forgot how much I missed CR when he was 10. This is a good age for kids, it really is. But I am glad CR grew up, too. :) #
  • 11:13 Taught so far:GIGO, binary math, how the Internet works, and Operating Systems. Now on a break. #
  • 11:16 @apeyanne Sir Breaksalot? "I like big stops and I can not lie! You other commuters can't deny!" #
  • 11:21 @Glark And knowing how to aim is the other half of the battle. GO COBRA! #
  • 13:03 The lessons continue: computer parts, hard drive failure, security, social engineering, switches/routers, and a tour of the data center. #
  • 13:03 Honestly, if Scarlet remembers 10% of what I am teaching her, she's up there with most techs. She's holding up well. #
  • 15:22 Lunch and the Blue Pearl, then back to teaching: Troubleshooting (using my toaster model), ticketing, customer service, and sales. #
  • 15:23 BTW: If YOU or you want your kids to know how to troubleshoot with customer service skills, I'll do the toaster exercise with you, too! :) #
  • 15:31 RT @ThisIsTrue Got a Geocities site? Better move it soon: bit.ly/Eup2g #
  • 16:41 Last lessons of the day: Management. Leadership, psychology, strategy, organization, and confidence. Also how firing people SUCKS. #
  • 16:42 Today has been a good day with me and a cheerful 5th grader. Looking forward to Balticon to see fandom from her eyes as well. #
  • 20:51 @lyric911 the toaster model is where I explain communication to n00bs (usually kids), having them pretend to be "Toaster Tech Support." #

When you first mentioned 'Toaster Tech Support' I could think of nothing but this

Well, there goes the Prune Bran site. Although, since they removed my access many years ago, I've not been able to do anything with it.
