RE: You Cannot Virtualize That
Definitely looking for feedback and ideas on this one. Trying to get the idea across but struggling to figure out if I've worded it in a good way.
The depth of thought that is displayed is obvious. Your entire article makes complete sense to me. Your ability to articulate your thoughts, and deliver them to others (while retaining readability) is amazing.
My pee break is over! Back to bed for me.
ITT tech ban from enrolling students with federal funds.
Thank you @scottalanmiller for that AMA session in Auburn.
Saved me from a stupid moment!
RE: If you are new drop in say hello and introduce yourself please!
@scottalanmiller thanks for the shout out!
I was very happy to have made it last night.
I'm currently a 1 man show. I'm trying to expand that into a larger group of guys.
I'm looking to constantly learn new things and how to best help in any scenerio. If I don't know something I find the persons that do. That's how I get things done.
I have a 40hr job along side my work so I'm very busy and I can't always contribute. But I try.
Thank you for the invite @Minion-Queen to ML I wish I'd known about this a while ago!
To everyone else Hello!
RE: Programming Printers
Well I had a post that I was almost done formating, and I was going to check a name and lost it. Grrr. Anyways. That was one stupidly arrogant, and completely off base act on his behalf.
The OP just needed help and all he did was derail the whole thing.
If someone did that in the middle of the dc down the other day that would have been horrible.
To @Dashrender I believe I was on SW then if I recall. Unfortunately I missed that one!
I always have looked up to @scottalanmiller it was clear he was very smart and knowledgeable. I was beyond excited when him and @Mike-Davis started up the Spice Corp in the area. Just sad it took be almost 10 years to be able to go and meet them both.
Very comical read thank you Scott!
RE: Random Thread - Anything Goes
@MattSpeller Welcome back... Are you in perfect shape now?
Any more days off laying around and I'd need a forklift to get my arse moving.
Good to be back in action! I was going crazier.
Found it for you, check this out about the 1:20 mark lol
RE: Too much on my plate
Wow, lots of work.
You are the director, so I assume you have others that are helping and you are in more of a directive role.
If you are deeply involved in all aspects of every project then that is tough. Certainly you can get it done, but not in a reasonable time frame.
I would ask for temporary management help (if your alone) until some of the projects are completed. I'm thinking an experienced project manager. (Scrum, Lean)
Let them take one or two of the projects, they can do the main work, thinking and bring you updates which take less time for you to make decisions on. Then you will have time to focus more on the other projects.
You have "boss #1, boss #2, boss #3 etc..."
Each boss has his own function and reports to someone higher in the ladder, who then makes a desicion. When they needed help that structure was developed. You need the same thing just temporarily.
I wish you the best with this.
RE: What does your desk look like?
I just got my workstation back up and running. I have been working from my laptop for the past month and a half. I still need to adjust the mount a bit. It's dipping on the right a bit. I think it's finally time to balance the mount out with the last monitor.
RE: Ubiquiti Access Point Missing
Working on trying to find six access points onsite without being a ceiling monkey. The controller isn't finding them, and while I have run an IP scan, I don't believe that the UBNT APs respond to ping requests.
Is there any way to make them want to call home? they have been reset (power cycled) already.
In the unifi folder you should find the unifi discovery tool. Use it to scan the network it should find them.
Download fing to a mobile and scan the network, you should be able to scan and ping the AP that way
Or you can use Nmap on a computer.
The APs will respond to a ping.
Once you find them you can SSH in using defaults username: ubnt password: ubnt
Point the AP back to the controller using the inform cmd.

RE: Closing down, have some equipment for sale
Thank you everyone,
Things have been going well despite my jump.
My father moved away last year and it opened a big spot for me to work in the construction field.
So far this year I have made more in the first 6 months than my entire last year. I'm just ahead of my full time job.
Anyway. I like to help people out as much as possible. But I'm torn.
I have an offer for the unit right now. I'm trying to get in as much capital for my business. I have a lot of tax right offs right now.
I have enjoyed the past 10months and not thinking about computers.
Closing down, have some equipment for sale
I tried to find a better place for this, it seemed like the best place.
I had a really rough year, and decided to close down my IT services. I really became frusterated not getting paid for services that were provided and working around the clock.
I have an ibm x3950m2 no drives (trays included), dual PSU, 4 quad core Xeon 2.93ghz cpus.
6 screen monitor mount (desk style)
I used the server for an internal lab environment.
If someone could use them I would let them go. Just trying to get a little cash back from them.
RE: Thumbtack - what a ripoff
You're basically paying $3 every time you quote someone, to which you may never see a return.
If a client is sitting on 10 quotes, Thumbtack makes $30 on that quote.
There are times where I don't have to pay at all to communicate with a customer due to a lack of pros in their area.
RE: Thumbtack - what a ripoff
Thumbtack can be an expense for sure. I have mixed feelings with them. They have brought me some really good clients and some that I don't want. I have brought in more than I have spent, there's no question about it.
I don't think many of the customers realize that the pro pays to communicate with them. I do find people are looking "shopping" and they are a waste of time. But there are others that are serious and have spent money with the pros.
RE: That moment when...
@prcssupport "Sunny T, please send selfie in order to determine proper price quote."
You know I'm not the only one that went there, just the first one to publicly admit it
That's so funny, honestly I hadn't thought of that!!!
RE: Random Thread - Anything Goes
We binge watch British sitcoms every year or two. Are You Being Served?, Coupling, Keeping Up Appearances.
My dad and I love to watch fawlty towers when we are out on jobs and have to stay overnight! We would watch an episode before bed.
