It seems like a lot of people have a negative view of systems, and I get that. They are complex systems, and they can be difficult to understand. But many of these systems don’t just work; they work well. We often overlook the value added by working with these systems. Working with them doesn’t have to be complicated, and it doesn’t have to be expensive.
One of the big reasons I love systems technology is that they tend to be very modular. This means you dont need a bunch of people to figure out how they are connected. You simply plug your system in, plug in your users, and boom – you have a fully integrated, fully functional system that you can tweak, tweak, tweak.
In the past, I have been guilty of not wanting to spend time with anyone who didn’t work with our technologies. I wanted to be sure that I knew that they were actually using them and that they didn’t just think it was cool to play around with stuff that I didn’t even understand. But lately I have been forced by life’s demands to spend more time with people who do work with our technologies.
But I don’t think that’s why I was so angry when I read the comments on the systems technology forum. What really got to me was that they were complaining about my lack of involvement. They said that they were the ones who were paying me to be here, but that they werent really looking at the things other people were doing.
The systems forum is a community for system scientists and engineers. Unlike the internet, which is for anyone and everyone, the systems forum is for a specific group of people who are looking to build the next big system that will solve their problems. They have specific roles, such as community manager, and are not directly involved in the day to day operation of the forum. They do have a sense of community, and are therefore important to the forum because it is their job to be involved in the forum.
For the systems forum, the members of forums are referred to as operators. The operators set up a system, define the rules of the system, and maintain it. They also make sure that the operators are aware of the rules and know how to follow them. If the operators make a mistake, they need to fix it, and if they make a mistake that would have been obvious they need to fix it. They also are responsible for maintaining the system.
The system that the operators set up is called a “roster.” Roster members get points for each operator they set up. If an operator loses points or gets kicked out, they can be challenged to a rematch. If an operator is challenged to a rematch, they have to show that they were the one who knocked out the operator and prove that they are the better operator. If the operator loses, they have to pay the operator that knocked them out a small sum of money.
This is a nice little side benefit of the system. It makes it easier for the system operators to keep track of who’s around and who’s not. It also means that less operator time is spent defending against attacks.
One problem that I see is that the operators are usually the ones who are tasked with keeping the system in good working order. Some systems have a “repair team” or a “maintenance team” that handles some maintenance issues. These teams are staffed by the operators, so if a repair team member is challenged to a rematch, they have to prove that they are the better operator. If the operator loses, they have to pay the repair team a small amount of money.
This can be a problem because this approach is quite limiting. The system is in a state where it can only be fixed by a team of the same operator. This means that if two repair teams want to work on the same problem, they will need to send the same team to the trouble spot. This can be a problem because the operators with the most experience will be best at dealing with the most complicated problems.
