Let me say that again. ARGH.

On the plus side, I remembered to wear a hat today.

I'll take pictures later, when my suitemates and I head out for the movie. Karen, Jenny, Mariana and I are planning to watch Pride and Prejudice later. I'm going in a floral blouse, a floor-length purple skirt, and a couple of hidden layers.

I'll be cold, but I'll be cold in _style._ ;)

2. You gotta love these teaching assistantship ads

<blockquote> ESC102H1 — Engineering Science Praxis II


  • Active Surplus is the coolest store in Toronto.
  • Duck tape and chewing gum are all you really need, especially if that's all you have!
  • "Junkyard Wars" sounds like a fun afternoon, but who needs another hovercraft?
  • Hacking around in Linux and open source is more fun than most people realize.
  • Saving the universe given a holodeck and transporter is easy; try doing it with two rocks and a stick!

If so, you're the kind of person we're looking for to TA the Design portion of Engineering Science Praxis II. </blockquote>

This is the position I'm interested in:

<blockquote> Infrastructure TAs (2 @ 60 hours)

As an Infrastructure TA you will work behind the scenes to keep Praxis II running smoothly. The course will rely on a number of software systems, including CCNet, wikis, blogs, file repositories, instant messaging, and any other systems that you think would help the students. Your role is to get the systems running and to keep them running throughout the term. You will also be responsible for helping with the logistics of the Design Showcases. You are ideal for this position if you are comfortable installing and testing open source software on a linux system, and then kludging disparate systems together to make an integrated software suite. </blockquote>

I know, I know, it's sysadmin stuff, but they mentioned wikis! And blogs! And other stuff! I can get kids to use social bookmarking sites like del.icio.us!

Deadline: Dec 9. Hmmm...
