Manaz writes "A story was recently published in publications owned by the Fairfax media group in Australia claiming that 40% of IT systems administrators are abusing their high-levels of system access to inappropriately view and obtain copies of corporate data:

SAGE-AU has expressed concern at this accusation, as they believe it paints professional IT systems administrators in an unfairly negative light, and has posted the following response to this story, to defend the reputation of both its own members and professional IT systems administrators in general.

+ - First Batch Of £16 Raspberry Pi PCs Arrives->

hypnosec (2231454) writes "It seems fitting that the first batch of Raspberry Pi computers landed in the UK in the hands of school children based in Leeds as what many consider as another wave of grass-root computing revolution, another BBC Micro 2.0, begins. The Raspberry Pi has been designed from scratch to get anyone interested in computer programming to do so without forking out much; the base unit can connect to a television like the Commodore C64 or the Sinclair ZX81. According to the BBC, the first batch has been presented by Eben Upton today, the school project coordinator, in an event held at the Leeds offices of Premier Farnell, one of the official PI distributors."

"most people on whirlpool, are IT managers and admins"

Oh please. Whilst I'm sure there are a lot of IT Managers and sysadmins on Whirlpool (I'm one of them), they're vastly outnumbered by kids and "enthusiast" internet users who's prime purpose on Whirlpool is to shop around for the most speed and monthly download capacity for their (parents) dollar.

Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

Working...
