Submission + - The origninal Astronaut Farmer...Burt Rutan?

An anonymous reader writes: In timing with the release of the Astronaut Farmer. I saw the trailer for this, and it reminded me of the developments in the AltSpace community.
I think the producers/writers based it on some notable people in the industry since the winning of the X-Prize.
So my vote is for Burt Rutan.
but here are the others to note.
Burt Rutan?
Elon Musk?
John Carmack?
Steve Bennett?
Brian Feeney?
or
Just good old Billy Bob?

Submission + - What's in a job title?

An anonymous reader writes: Currently I call my self a Systems Administrator. I've been told that may not be such a good job title when trying to move up/get ahead. Here is what I do:
  • Write all the company's web applications (WebObjects/Java)
  • Maintain the company's web site/ftp site/mail server. I also write all the HTML pages (aka webmaster which isn't 'in' anymore, apparently)
  • LAN/WAN & VPN connectivity.
  • Maintain file servers
  • Maintain LDAP server
  • Maintain DNS
  • Desktop support
  • Server maintenance training
  • DBA (MySQL, some Oracle)
  • I maintain 8 servers in three countries.

Don't know if it matters but I also report to the VP of Engineering/IT who reports to the CEO. What do you think, what title would you choose? Title's like head yahoo doesn't really work :-)

I could just be full of it...

(No offense to any Systems Administrators out there...)
