I keep thinking there's got to be a way to pivot to some kind of lucrative DC lobbying gig.  I should probably research that more seriously.

Let me know what you find out.  However I do not think I have the ability to do that.  I can't even buy a used car properly.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

Yes, but can you SELL a used car properly. I think that's a more apt way to look at lobbying.

Isn't that harder in every way?

My career in IT is 100% due to my pension. Technology is a giant shithole of unfunctioning iterations pushed out at an ever-increasing speed to satisfy shareholders who don't give a shit about the product.

Today's fun (after replacing all of our public computers due to Apple's new sunsetting tightening impacting our vendors): Numlock is disabled on all the PCs.

Check BIOS, of course. That's where the setting is, right? Always has been. Nah, it's turned on there.

Ditto in Win 10, both settings are fine.

No, Dell put in a hidden setting that can only be changed with their proprietary CLI that isn't publicly available (I've yet to go down that shitty rabbit hole of 'support').

Just...I don't understand why people would be in IT other than the money (or in my case, the bennies). Ye gods.

All ya’ll fuckers say this until you get a job outside of IT.  Then find out the rest of the world is supposed to actually work hard.  For less money.

I honestly can’t imagine doing anything other than IT.   why so serious?

Five second google search.

Thanks, my google-fu is usually uncanny, but I had too many pots on the stove this morning and frankly see this as such a minor issue as to be at the bottom of the upgrade priority list, but people get complainy and escalate it to administration....

...which is another reason IT is a pisser. People don't understand how prioritization works.

Sure, let me set aside these other dozen things so I can focus on the one person who doesn't realize they can press the numlock key or use the other set of number keys. FFS.

Actually, I love working hard. Raised into it. Getting too old to sustain it, though.

One of the many things I hate about IT is how I can spend a lot of precious time working on something, only to have some asshole post a quick fix after I'm done with it.  It's even worse when his fix is better than mine in most ways.  I think this is why people move into architecture.

I think IT took a serious turn for the worse when the demographics shifted to where 90% of the people in the field are only in it for the money.

Google Fu is something at which I like to think I excel, which is why I have gravitated toward the field. I can sift through bullshit fairly quickly.
