Hi aikimark,

the newest ex-ex-newsletter implies that you are the new ZA/PE for this topic.

for this my congrates and i think it was a good choice.

Did netminder really
... after several weeks' persistent browbeating and bribing by Netminder. ...

I guess I wrote that "wrong"...
the meaning of what I wrote should be understood like:
 if you had been able to meet aikimark at the EE conference, in live, you would have understood that newsletter remark ...

in more or less all the Q&A sections, he was the one asking for "something" :)
like a "pain in the ass", but actually with the positive meaning/results

Thanks, guys.  The ZAPE status was a surprise to me.  I thought Netminder was 'showing me' the additional tools and menus...What does this link do?  What's that ticking sound?!?  OMG, Run!!!  :-O

The newsletter brought quite a shock.  This ape has become a ZAPE.  Go figure.  Netminder has been 'working' me on the ZAPE issue for a while.  I don't know if I've been tricked or exhausted.  Maybe I just didn't realize that the pot of water I've been in has been boiling.  Subtle, Netminder.  Subtle.

Meikl,  I hoped to have seen you at the CORE Conference.

Since the EE folks didn't expect me to give a presentation, (I offered) but only opine, I just turned on my brain for the duration of the conference.  Jonathan was quite jumpy by the end of the conference.  We sort of overflowed his (brain) buffer.  Being so vocal was just my way of trying to contribute enough to justify my presence at the conference.  I apologize to those sitting behind me trying to offer their comments or ask their questions.  I was in a groove.

Thanks to AngelIII, you can see me wearing an 'official' t-shirt.  He wouldn't take my picture in my Guru t-shirt.

And it was a very enjoyable experience meeting everyone, even that Bruin fan, WhackAMod. ;-)

I've been in the planning and pre-production phases for my annual party, the Fall FLOG (Friends and Loved Ones Gathering).  That's why it has taken me a couple of days to find this thread.  60-80 attendees, kegs of beer, all-day pig cooking in my back yard isn't a trivial social event to pull off.

Do You Know the 4 Main Threat Actor Types?

Do you know the main threat actor types? Most attackers fall into one of four categories, each with their own favored tactics, techniques, and procedures.

@AngelIII

I've frequently stated that "I may be a pain in the ass, but I *DO* have some comedic qualities."

=================
@ziolko

I hate responsibility and power.  That's why I treated Netminder's be-a-ZAPE suggestions as threats.  The evening before the conference, he asked again during happy hour.  Anything contracts or agreements while intoxicated don't count. :-)

Please help orient me to your ZAPE world.  Let me know when/where I can improve.  I still think of myself as a mere expert here at EE.

How about
* Loki's a trickster, not a hipster.
* Loki has Thor envy.
* Q: What's the difference between Loki and Thor?
   A: Thor is welcomed back to Asgard.

>I still think of myself as a mere expert here at EE.
in short: an expert that bothers enough about EE is a ZAPE in his mind.
the ZAPE status just will give you the power to (help) change the things yourself that previously you had to ask someone else for...

I don't have any good things to say so I'll shut up (don't bother asking for details).
I just posted this so that people don't get the (wrong) idea that everything is peachy.

On my drive down from northern CA, I stopped by the CodeGear (formerly Borland) in Scots Valley and met Anders, Allen and David.

On my post-conference drive, I did a tour of the Hearst Castle.

@TheRealLoki

That reminds me of a similar thread.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_23724134.html

WhackAMod says "No, we love hearing from you :) ", and then closes the question after my next comment.

I was concerned that my loose cannon of a mind/mouth might not be welcome at the conference once it gathered momentum.

Thanks for the kudos.  I'll try to do my best and not abuse my vast ZAPE powers.

Also, thanks for the points.  Every little bit helps keep me within reach of ziolko. (or just break into the top 20 for the year)
