Geekly World News: October 2021

I’m excited for October! Here in Texas, October brings the Texas Renaissance Festival [Ed. note: HUZZAH!] in addition to our usual Halloween shenanigans. I’m happy to once again be working on costumes, and looking forward to my annual watching of Hocus Pocus. I hope you’re all looking forward to some fun in October as well. September saw us celebrating IT Pro Day and our second annual IT Pro Day Awards. I hope you were all celebrated and recognized as you deserve!

What might you have missed in September?
