+ - Lawrence Lessig on east-coast verses west-coast->

Submitted by sysbot
sysbot (238421) writes "Quoting from https://www.socallinuxexpo.org...

"At the end of my talk, I made a pretty strong ask for volunteers who might be willing to lend some of their technical skills to the cause. Appropriately enough, the link that I had provided died earlier in the day, so any offers to help were lost. I am endlessly indebted to the organizers of SCALE for allowing me to make this followup pitch: If you’re willing to help, we (obviously) need it. Just send an email to SCALE@lessig.org with a description of the sort of commitment/skills you can offer, and if helpful, a description of your background.""

Comment: try Rackmonkey (Score 1) 113

by sysbot (#31946770) Attached to: GUI-Based Asset-Tracking Tools For a Datacenter?

Give this a try. It very good at tracking physical assets such as rack/server. It doesn't doe a whole datacenter but we modified the code to give just back rows of racks.

Now the physical asset track is in one place, for inter-dependency, I create an diagram of the interconnect at a more logical level since I know the physical will be correct. This could be say a set of switches connecting to a distribution switch and etc..

Good SAT Scores Lead To Higher Egg Donor Prices 175

Posted by samzenpus
from the golden-parachute-eggs dept.
alphadogg writes "Analysis from Georgia Institute of Technology of college newspaper egg donor ads showed that higher payments offered to egg donors correlated with higher SAT scores. 'Holding all else equal, an increase of 100 SAT points in the score of a typical incoming student increased the compensation offered to oocyte donors at that college or university by $2,350,' writes researcher Aaron D. Levine in a paper published in the March-April issue of the Hastings Center Report. Concerned about eggs being treated as commodities, and worried that big financial rewards could entice women to ignore the risks of the rigorous procedures required for harvesting, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine discourages compensation based on donors' personal characteristics. The society also discourages any payments over $10,000."
