Tom Wilson offers "Data Mining User Behavior." When assessing a system, we tend to make a lot of assumptions about user behavior.  In this article, Wilson studies think time, arrival rate and session duration in order to test newly developed applications with more accuracy.  He also shows a great way to visualize the data obtained.

Denise Kalm presents another edition of "Your Career Coach" with "Show Me The Money."  How many of you have tried (and failed) to get a raise?  If asking for more money (or even just asking for the salary you deserve in a hiring situation), you need to understand the situation from your manager’s point of view. Learn how here.

Michael Hines reviewed "MVS Systems Programming," by Dave Elder-Vass.  This guide is a great place to start for a budding systems programmer, as well as a resource for those who have forgotten more than most people know.
