    A Thread About Absolutely Nothing! Part III

    Been offline a while. On top of this, an aunt died, so took a couple of days off work to decompress and avoided being online. LOL, I completely understand the desire to be useful. Although I often dream of coworkers being useful. We wear a lot of hats here, and people don't realize how good...

    A Thread About Absolutely Nothing! Part III

    One of our core group members might be leaving. He's making the decision today, but sounds like his mind's made up. I can't blame him, and always appreciate when coworkers find a better job. Not to mention all the staff reductions already endured has been stressful. Sadly this would mean...

    A Thread About Absolutely Nothing! Part III

    When my mom went to assisted living, I got her cat. Last time she asked how he was doing, I told her fine and that I gave him a bath. She gasped and was very upset. Then I said it took forever to get the hair off my tongue. Steve Martin was a good influence on me.

    Please update when you have some feedback. Interested in something in a few months when my daughter starts learning to drive.

    Post your gas prices Part II

    It's been 2.46 - 2.57 in Concord/Kannapolis, but I'm usually near the Interstate. Surprised they didn't raise it for the holiday/Coca-Cola 600 traffic.

    What are you doing right now? Part II

    Balancing customer traffic - we got hit with a huge denial of service attack. Going to spread the load out a bit better in that region.

    Thanks, it'll be fine I think. Someone had a red one, Swingline really nailed it to start making them after the movie. I forget what kind we had growing up. It was a tank - all metal with rubber on bottom. I remember putting thick stacks of paper in there and basically doing CPR to try to...

    What did you learn today? Part II

    Today I learned more about multicast traffic and implemented PIM-SM with MSDP in lab.

    Anyone here use linux instead of windows?

    Used a lot of ix stuff over the years for school and work. SUSE, Solaris, Debian, Redhat, Ubuntu, BSD. More of our software for work is supported by Redhat than other flavors. With constant flow of upgrades to Linux, their own software, as well as other third-party stuff, they like to limit...

    Anyone here use linux instead of windows?

    Debian is good at keeping it small, it gets a little disorienting for me as I'm used to Redhat flavors. I switched to Mac for my own use at home and work.

    OneVP from ZVRS

    I just read a little on it. It looks like they have an app as well if you have a box that supports a camera. I'd hope that more and more of these services work on cell phones now in addition to phone or TV box. It'd be nice to know if they use H265 encoding or not. That allows high quality...

    What are you thinking about? Part VIII

    One of my daughter's schools didn't allow it (first or second grade). I think one of those years, they were allowed to bring in cookies (not cake) at lunch, but you had to be sure not to have nuts, chocolate, strawberries, ...

    What are you thinking about? Part VIII

    LOL, just waiting for the glitch to fix itself! They guy beside me went around the newly empty cubes looking for a stapler. We do get reviews, and think that was used in decision making. We are a very small team, now smaller. I lost a bit of time on my projects training people in other...

    What are you thinking about? Part VIII

    We're private, so we don't get much info. I do know that the owners have not been taking a salary for a while now and have been putting their own money back into it. They are definitely committed to the company. It was actually a more encouraging talk than expected.

    What are you thinking about? Part VIII

    It was a combination of things. Some of the previous were performance related. The company is fine, just not optimal on staffing. Some things were probably easy to cut - we had a Microsoft Exchange admin and we are now completely on Office 365. I figured some would be coming later when a...

    What is?

    Was that you??? hehehe. I got a few of those before. Funny when they send pictures and when you search the picture, it's some European model. Some pictures also remind me of the old 900 number commercials that came on late night.

    Too much. Old flame's birthday was yesterday. 25 people fired from work yesterday. Makes at least 32 in 2 weeks. Think they are done, for now.
