MySQL Operations Changes

We are currently handing off MySQL operations except for Bugzilla and Reviewboard to a 3rd party contractor to free up the Data Team for bigger projects. If you have access to MySQL, that will not change. However, the people who debug problems will change. If you have any concerns or questions, please e-mail data@mozilla.com or contact the data team manager, Sheeri Cabral.

IT Vending Machine Update

The Mozilla IT peripheral vending machine has arrived in the MTV office. If you work in MTV ( or just visiting) and need a power cord, mouse, headset, etc. you can find the vending machine by the Service Desk. The machine is integrated with our badging system so all you have to do is swipe your badge and choose your item.

If you only need an item a short time please return it to the Service Desk so we can redeploy. Also, if you don't find what you need in the vending machine please ask on of our Service Desk team.

IT Peripheral Vending machines are coming to the SF and Toronto offices in Q2.

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation. If you plan on showing a video, you need to contact the Air Mozilla team before the day of the meeting or you will be deferred to the next week.
