As for finding talent. I've seen some new marketplaces come up which help people in certain industries find jobs near and dear to their heart.
For example GitHub's job market. Or StackOverflow's market. Or CodePen's market.
Yes, other industries have done this decently well. IT really suffers in trying to make this happen.
Could that be potentially because IT covers such a broad array of topics?
There's a lot of customization in the iptables config and other areas that are scripted so that future systems could be deployed quickly.
If that was handled in Salt, it would be all automated so that it would solve this problem, rather than create it. That's actually a reason to use Salt in that case.
The production stack has Salt working. It's the QA stack that doesn't. The production stack is 62 servers, and needs Salt. The QA stack is just 8 servers plus 2 management servers, and the salt config is supposed to be the same, but adjusted for other system names. I don't have the Salt skills to adjust the Salt scripts to work for the QA stack.
Hmmm... might want to pressure your Salt guy to automate that. In theory, you could have something like QA in the name that designates that for the future.
Yeah, the reason I'm in the middle of all this is because our Salt guy is on his honeymoon in Italy this week, and the UK next week. So, he's not going to be of much help for a while.
That was not good timing!
Fun story: He's planned this for a year. He married his wife a year ago in the US to allow her to stay in the country, to then have a real ceremony on their 1 year anniversary with her family and go on their honeymoon. In January, our company got bought out, specifically because our technology was far better than the other company's, yet they had better sales contacts and more business, and the new CTO has a very special and fast timeline for converting some of our apps to cloud for use by our new coworkers. That plan just happened to step on our Systems Engineer's wedding plans that were not able to be changed. So, we got stuck in this mess. Sometimes, various things just make the perfect storm.
I never read the linked thread. Just responding to your statement here.
Oh FFS! . . .
Where is my beer. . .
But the linked thread is not relevant to your statement here that I was responding to.

Would you all be happy if I said " OP is looking to downscale from a column designed network into an IPOD when he requires only 43TB of storage and 1250 IOPS"
damn. . .
You are not understanding. You claimed that size of storage is what decided the need for a SAN or not. That is what is being argued with you. It has nothing to do with anything else.
We all generally understand that at under certain host count a SAN (and the storage it can provide) makes no fucking sense at all.
Why are you guys up my ass about it today?
because you are insisting on a totally different decision factor that doesn't make sense.
Even if you only need 250GB of shared stuff, but you need to share it to enough hosts, then a SAN make sense.
Not in context of the OP, which is a 2 host 1 san solution he's looking for.
But then why state the red herring as the reason instead of the actual reason? the reason is "two hosts", nothing to do with the capacity number, but you implied that a large capacity number would make a SAN make sense, even just for one host.
The system hasn't been terrible, but it's not flexible, and also we need to get away from hosting this PBX on premises. The hosted Altigen solutions I looked at a year ago when this project was first born were 2x to 3x more expensive than FreePBX hosted somewhere with a SIP provider.
That's all? only 2-3x as much? Hosting a FreePBX costs like $6/month from Vultr. If hosting your Altigen only costs $12-18/month, that will take a lot of savings to climb over the cost of new phones for a FreePBX system.
From what I recall, Altigen was something like $20 / seat / month. Also we have a couple of hundred folks who are virtual extensions who basically only have a mailbox. There is a desire for these folks to start making calls, which for Altigen, would create another "seat."
Production Checkpoints -- uses Volume Shadow Copy Service or File System Freeze on a Linux virtual machine to create a data-consistent backup of the virtual machine. No snapshot of the virtual machine memory state is taken.
They do cover that, actually. But they don't make it very clear.
Tocar always means to play when the object is an instrument.
How would you say to touch the flute, then?
Why would you say touch the flute? Context will always tell you which is which, Duolingo questions will always be vague.
Well, if you want to say that someone touched a flute versus played a flute, how do you differentiate?
If you run into the room and ask "Who [touched|played] my guitar?" do you have to explain more to be able to differentiate between those two different actions?
I imagine there is another word that does not translate literally to "touched" that would get used in that scenario. In English, "touching" a guitar does not equal playing a guitar, so I would bet that the Spanish equivalent would be idiomatic.
When would that sentence ever actually come up in normal, native speaker's conversation?
When we are all touching the flute and the band teacher shouts at us "Don't touch that flute" ?
But who's flute are we touching?
How do I join this band?
You have to let them inspect your embouchure hole....
Titles don't matter that much except for companies that literally base your pay range on it. If they are going to do that, then fight for the best paying title!
And yes, I do work for a comp that does it. I started as "IT Helpdesk" and could not get my title changed even once I began supporting Linux web servers and doing all the purchasing and essentially being responsible for all-the-things.
The person before me who remained on staff for a while was called "IT Coordinator", whatever that means.
Eventually I had to write like a 6 page letter explaining what I do and what titles actually mean and finally got my title approved to be "IT Systems Administrator" (a most appropriate and generic title for my position and duties). And then negotiated my pay as a separate thing. Plus I like calling myself a "SysAdmin" and can celebrate national SysAdmin Day.
What's funny is that when my boss would send phone calls or emails to me to do things, he would use important-sounding titles to look impressive to the other person. Like "I'll pass you on to our CTO to handle that" even though I'm no such thing, lol
Why are we still cracking on IE? MS has admitted it sucks and moved onto Edge. I have no idea if it's better, but MS isn't pushing IE anymore - in fact, they are doing everything they can to pull away from it. Not in the start tray, not in the Start menu, etc.
Edge sucks just as badly, or worse. Besides, I love to bag on IE, because we still have to use it here. When a user asks me something browser related, I always answer "it didn't work because IE is garbage, always has been. But since you aren't allowed to use a real browser for this, let's take a look..."
I extend this to microsoft desktop OSes
Meh, windows works fine until a stupid user gets their hands on it. I've never experienced any of the alleged "issues" with running windows for the past 20 years, ergo I don't really give a frig about Linux.
This is my POV. I think Windows is great. It's all the shit people put on it that turn it into crap!
I can't say that's true or not true for Linux. I'd have to find normals who are willing to use Linux, give them local admin rights (so they can install any shit they want to) and then see if they can even find the shit they want to install that often causes all of these problems.
Like emoticon add-ons, greeting card makers, etc.
If those things don't need to be installed because they are already part of everything the user wants to use, fine, great even.
But definitely do NOT install that on Windows. Not only is it costly and bloated so not good from just a general standpoint, but the key components of the system like MariaDB and PHP do not run efficiently on Windows and are not tuned for it. So even if you could get Windows for free and dedupe it like crazy to make it more lean, it will still run like total crap compared to a smaller Linux instance. This is one of the best known workloads that should never appear on Windows, it makes zero sense as the "premium" of Windows is totally lost here and turns into all negative.
