More and more corporations and small businesses are taking the Linux plunge these days, and for good reason. The low cost of Linux combined with an abundance of geeks who eat, sleep, and breathe UNIX has created a win-win situation for IT managers and geeks alike. Since it’s usually a younger junior systems administrator or “that kid from the design group who knows a lot about computers” who introduces Linux into the workplace, there’s already someone in-house to move into a full-time systems administration position with no training required.

It’s odd. I’ve always had the ability to sense my surroundings. I have no idea why or how, but I always seem to know when there are people around me or when someone is focusing their attention on me.

These contributors add nothing of substantial content to USENET, and simply waste bandwidth with their ramblings.

Kindergarten Teacher: Wendy Jill Delisle
Sean feels extremely comfortable and at ease in school. He has a good rapport with the teachers. He plays well with the other children yet if he becomes involved with building and someone takes his materials or knocks it down, he will become very mad. At times, he will either scream, cry or even hit. Once he is spoken to, he settles down.
He usually shares well but again if he becomes very involved with something he can become very possessive. He plays quite well independently but also enjoys the company of others. His speech and vocabulary is superior He completely dresses himself.
Sean listens and follows directions very well. He needs to be pushed to do an art project. I don’t always try to have Sean do this type of work yet at times, I try my best to really encourage him. He always does work papers and usually does a good job. At times, he will hurry to finish his work which can create sloppy cutting and poor coloring yet once he is asked to do his best, he does a good job.
Sean’s attention span is good. He is a good participator in group situations yet he is not crazy over singing songs. Sean enjoys most anything in the room but he is crazy over making ships. Boats and building from the free form posts.
