The two words an IT admin should *never* utter…

It’s mid-afternoon. The phone is silent. The job queue is pretty empty. You’ve done the project work you wanted to get done for today. “Jeez it’s quiet!” Don’t ever…EVER…say this.

Would you ask a doctor for free advice? Would you ask a mechanic to “just take a quick look”?

I’m not going to get too much into the back story of this, because it’s not completely necessary and it’s not nice – and don’t feel like having defamation brought against me! There was a recent situation I found myself in where I was at a business as a client and mentioned I worked in IT while there consuming said… Read more »

Driving as a young woman in a tiny car

The words above strike fear into the heart of many. Young woman driver. Small car. Pretty much a death trap on wheels at high speed. Based on a few experiences I’ve had over the last few days (and over the last few years) I wanted to share my opinions (and they are purely my opinions, so feel free to pick… Read more »
