Oracle Space Shuttle Wins Milky Way Cup



Larry Ellison piloted the space shuttle "11g" to victory in the first running of the Milky Way Cup.

"It was a team effort," Ellison quipped into his space suit while orbiting Saturn's moon Hyperion.

"Lots of work went..." he added before the transmission was interrupted by an unidentified celestial body.

"That's not fair" said an IBM spokesperson from somewhere in New York state.




"Winners win, losers whine," Ellison responded before we lost the signal again.

"It's not a real race if you don't tell the people you're supposed to be racing against," added a clearly irritated spokesperson from SAP.

The transmission from Hyperion was breaking up badly, but we thought we could make out something that sounded like "Nya-nya-nyaaa" before we lost it completely. We'll hear the rest of Ellison's statement whenever the unpredictable Hyperion re-emerges from its orbit around Saturn.

In other news, The Onion reports that an Americans spend 14 trillion dollars annually just trying to look cool.

It's always April Fools at The Onion.

BigAdmin Only Available by Command Line

In brotherhood and sisterhood with sysadmins across the world, as of April 1st, BigAdmin will only be available from the command line of a terminal window.Here is a partial summary of BigAdmin's CLI:

bigadmin -hm - BigAdmin Home Page
bigadmin -mtd - Message of the Day
bigadmin -hcl - Hardware Compatibility List
bigadmin -nwslttr - BigAdmin Newsletter
bigadmin -rtcls - Feature Articles
bigadmin -ttfq - Tech Tips and FAQ's
bigadmin -blprnts - Sun BluePrints
bigadmin -xprts - BigAdmin Experts
bigadmin -drvrs - Devices and Drivers
bigadmin -tpcs - Resources by Sysadmin Topics
For a complete list of BigAdmin terminal window commands, enter:
bigadmin -h

Through the technical wizardry of BigAdmin's engineering department, we have found a way to include BigAdmin content and resources into every build of every software environment on every computer. AND keep it updated.

You no longer need an internet connection. Nope. So you've got wireless? Big whup. We have the command line.

Even if you haven't downloaded a new version of software, your terminal window will display our latest content. And you thought Web 2.0 was cool.

If for some odd reason your particular terminal window doesn't display BigAdmin content, then someone has taken specific measures to disallow this functionality. Go directly to your manager, shake your fist, and shout "Why did you take BigAdmin out of my terminal window!"

If this does not have the intended effect, take advantage of the resume posting feature on our jobs board:
