Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

I'd rather be a hammer than a... build admin

There seems to be a mass exodus taking place at my workplace. There was recently a layoff of about 50 positions worldwide. The local build administrator chose to leave after 10 years, so his job was transfered to some other guy, who decided to leave after the layoffs, so he doesn't get the severance package, but he leaves in about a week or so, which means he's going to have to transfer everything to somebody else in the department for the transition period between when he leaves and the new position is filled, which means a total of 4 transitions for one job within the span of about a month or less.

I bring this up, because they were asking me if I was done with college, and were sad to hear that I had another year to go. They were suggesting that I could do the builds remotely, during my networking class. Which, you know, I'm all for, but I think it would be a little disruptive. And the old old build admin gave me one piece of advice on his last day... "Get a real job." And so I intend to. Or at least, I don't intend to be the build guy for this place. Still, it's nice to know that they considered me.
