5 out of 6 of those I do on an almost daily basis. The 6th "build first" one I don't do only because I'm not a developer. We do have a developer who does nothing but support and advance the custom manufacturing application that he designed & developered specifically for us though. So 6 out of 6 of those are done here on a regular basis.
These kinds of lists are great, in a massive budget, huge IT staff of compartmentalized specialists like 'Exchange Admins' or 'Switch Admins' Fantasy world. The problem is actual reality IT Geeks, like myself, are spread so thin we're see though. We support everything from cabiling to printers to switches to resetting passwords or unlocking AD account of idiots who can't turn off their CAPS Lock.
We spend our entire day fighting small fires to keep them from becoming big ones, fixing systems by any means necessary while the Corporate President breathes down our neck.
When you work in a company that is just managing to survive, sadly understaffed, that has a process of needing purchase order approvals for everything from a single keyboard on up, these lists on this site are laughable.
Nice article though. Just not how IT is in the real world.
