Back at TR

by Joseph Moore In reply to 50m3 r@nd0M +h0ugh+s fr0 ...

Hello. Many things have changed over the past year for me. I plan on being involved again here at TR. Maybe not quite as much as I used to be. For 3 years, I was answering 10 to 20 questions a day at the Q&A forums. I like to think my obsession with everything IT helped out some folks with some freaky problems.
But while I was at the top of my game with computers and this crazy IT world, the rest of my life fell apart. I'll get into some details later on.
But for now know that all is going very well, I'm happy, and I can see the sunrise again. No more darkness. No more despair. No more loss.
So, I think I feel like lending a hand again.
I'm new to the whole blog thing, so I'm not sure if I'm gonna like it.
But I'll give it a shot.
So, look for me around the TR site some, and I'll post updates here.
I guess I should get back to it and look for a question or two to take care of.
Bye for now.

Joseph, welcome back -- and I really mean it. I must say that I often wondered about you, and I can assure you that your absence was noticed by more people than just me.

Darth Vader's Blog

by Joseph Moore In reply to 50m3 r@nd0M +h0ugh+s fr0 ...

I've been reading this blog every day for a month now, and it looks like today's the last post:

<p><a href="http://darthside.blogspot.com/">http://darthside.blogspot.com/</a></p>
<p> </p>
Yes, Darth Vader has a blog! But it is a very well-written novel, basically. It is from Darth Vader's perspective, starting from the time period of Empire Strikes Back, and going forward into Return of the Jedi. The entire premise is that once Anakin put on the Vader mask, he never stopped being Anakin.
Yes, he enjoys "trachea crushing", but he also still misses his mother, and wants to love his son, Luke.
A very interesting read.
You will love Vader's managerial problems, and how he works with his subordinates.
Or crushes their tracheas.

Help support the Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon!

by Joseph Moore In reply to 50m3 r@nd0M +h0ugh+s fr0 ...

The 12th Annual Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon is the largest single day of community service in Chicago. 8,000 volunteers will paint, plant and clean up schools, parks and social service agencies throughout the city, and I'm one of them! This year's event takes place on Saturday, June 11, 2005.


In addition to volunteering for this event, I am also collecting donations to support Chicago Cares' year-round community service initiatives. I hope you will consider making a donation to support my efforts and make a difference in Chicago.

Ok, something about the Pointy-Haired Boss Man's smile just creeps me out:<p>

I had that very same feeling. Funny thing, I have that feeling about <strong>most</strong> managers in general.

Ah, weekend work!

by Joseph Moore In reply to 50m3 r@nd0M +h0ugh+s fr0 ...

Here is is Friday afternoon, and while I'm sitting here eating a few Rice Krispie Treats (yum!), I'm doing a few pre-deployment tasks. I get to work all day tomorrow, helping out to roll out a new version of one of our public websites. <br>Me, my tasks today involve some folder permissions tweaking on the FTP server, making some config changes to the clustered Crystal Enterprise servers, and adding some new Security and Distribution Groups to AD.<br>This I'll finish today, along with manual full backups of the production servers, in case the rollout tomorrow just really frags everything.<br>Tomorrow, with baseball cap on, while having a death-clutch on a large cup of coffee (probably Blue Jamacian Mountain blend from White Hen), I'll mostly hang out and be here when the few developers and/or project managers need me to reboot a server.<br>I admit, it's macabrely enjoyable to watch them all run around, squirm, and swear when their site upgrades don't work the first time around. "Well, it works in devleopment and QA?!??!!"<br>But it always seems like to me that every developmer Dev/QA environment is always tweaked and mostly scrambled. Production, we keep clean and operational. So yeah, when they move stuff to Production, there's always problems. <br>At least I'll have my coffee.<br>Wish me luck!

"Well, it works in devleopment and QA?!??!!"

LOL! I'm guilty of saying that from time to time. Glad to see the whole QA vs. Live issue exists in other places.
