Spending the weekend with the boy attending open university days. For those wondering what I'm on about, universities have open days where they flaunt their facilities in an attempt to entice school leavers to apply for one of their courses.
After pigging out at the free Chancellor's BBQ (a Chancellor is the head of the University), I was sandwiched between 17 year olds in Lecture Theater 100, listening to some Professor drone on about the future of the I.T. industry. It was an insane 29C (84F) this spring day and naturally, Dad nodded off.
Owww, sharp pain, boy elbowed me in the ribs, sat up startled only to catch the Professor conclude "I.T. unlike law is not locality specific. Australian I.T. professionals are accepted in the U.S. ... just like Chefs."
Now they tell me... *sigh*
Encountered a damn flaw in LinkedIn, a business-oriented social networking site. One can set ones privacy so that your contacts cannot see others within your network.
Well and good if you click into Connections, you go no further but should one click Network Statistics, hell everyone of your contacts are listed.
Sorry... Remove Connection *click*
