I took the 2009 objectives- probably much later than you two.
More than a decade later. If you took it is 2009 it must have been updated for Windows 98 since the 1998 objectives were Windows 3.1.
And of course books. These two look best to me:
Someone sent me a minion laugh audio file yesterday morning. I have now made it my ring tone. So during the day I keep my sound off on my phone but turn it back on after 5pm. Last night my phone rang and made me jump and then laugh I almost didn't answer the phone in time
@ajstringham yeah kinda.....
Now who coulda done something like that...I wonder...
I'd love to have more women in IT! Level the playing field for us really geeky guys! Lol
Ahh yes A.J. sounds fun, that's why you need to expedite getting GF
Or boyfriend... what ever keeps the boat floating....
Wait.. what? BF joke
Ryan, I'm straight tyvm...
You're welcome very much
A few years ago, I was recovering from burnout and took a helpdesk position. It was low-stress, low-workload, and extremely relaxing. Sometimes taking a step back isn't all that bad to do. If I hadn't been recruited away, I'd likely still be there.
That's kinda what I did with my current job, went from an MSP, to Goodwill, to another MSP to help desk / internal IT for a single office. All involved IT help desk in some way except this job, where it's software support only. Been less stressed and given some room to move and do things but I miss having projects and different environments.
I was thinking as a professional resume.
This is all I use it for as well. With every job I've gotten, the hiring manager and/or HR made a comment about having a nice LinkedIn page. I've only gotten 2 or 3 fake recruiters from it and a few referrals for new job openings. The rest of the site seems to be marketing crap.
@scottalanmiller sucked the lol right out of it with logic.
I don't think that hashtags do what you think that they do.
Yeah I'm noticing that. Is this a feature of the text editor?
It's markdown. Just standard markdown, nothing special.
Sorry for the delay, Scott, but I finally shared my resume with you. If you could look at it, when you get a chance, I'd appreciate it.
I got it. Might not get to look at it until the weekend. We will see.
We had a fairly difficult time finding someone that was properly qualified for a network admin position within our company. We had hundreds of applicants, but very few that were qualified for the position
That's what we keep seeing. Lots of people out of work but most out of work for a reason. Unskilled or "mis" skilled - having skills that are over saturated and lacking the ones needed in the market. Or being in the wrong location and unwilling to relocate.
My husband and I have been back at school for just over 9 months, now. We're getting our degrees in IT, but I am heavily considering project management, to be more flexible, in case IT "just isn't what it used to be". We are in our project management cluster now (the adjunct professor is a freakin' rockstar in PM), so I'll know in a month or two if I'm cut out for this stuff.
Congrats on school - I sort of "fell into" IT, but if I had to do it over again, I'd probably be a musician, zookeeper, or humanitarian aid worker.
Have you ever told someone you'd work a ticket for them over the weekend because that's when you had time?
No, but I'll often tell them I'd ***try ***to work a ticket for them over the weekend. If I was unable to do to what I said I would (which happens regularly), I'll just let them know that something else came up and I didn't find the time. I never promise anything - either at home or at work. The best I'll say to a user is "if nothing else comes up then I will work on this at such and such a time". It's the same with my kids - instead of saying "I promise we'll go to the park this afternoon", I'll say "If we have time, we'll go to the park this afternoon". I never promise anything - life is too unpredictable.
As I was reading the OP, this is exactly what rang in my head - why on earth would you promise something to an end user that isn't your boss, and even then why do it? Best effort is the expectation that we should be trying to set, but not promises.
Like MS SQL Server, PostgreSQL is a full RDBMS. It's a hard core enterprise system that goes after drop in replacement with Oracle DB. Pretty much any enterprise software using a database lets you select between PostgreSQL, Oracle, Sybase and SQL Server if not many more like MySQL, MariaDB, DB2, etc.
MySQL is focused on lightweight web applications so is tuned differently than the others. PostgreSQL is the new darling for enterprise app development. It's old but really good.
Someday, maybe he will find this thread.
that is exactly what I was thinking. "hey dude, we were concerned about you" In case he makes it here.
I thought about posting a link to his Facebook profile, but I think that might be crossing the line of professionalism. At least there would be a picture to go on the milk carton when he's considered missing.
