      In reply to A sysadmin guide to…

      Well, is not my first day at the job, so there’s a need to give some background:

      I’m not sure if I should consider myself a Sysadmin, don’t remember where but I saw a discussion about who is really a sysadmin. So far I’ve managed mainly Windows boxes; that’s not bad, but it’s not as impressive as saying: “I’ve managed Unix, Solaris, Linux servers and some Windows boxes” 😉

      In my previous job there weren’t many interesting things to do since all of us were moving more to become and expensive “help desk” rather than a cheap “IT department”. I know that sometimes this also has a lot to do with the kind of worker that you are; but since my CIO and CFO weren’t too interested in new technologies and new projects I decided to move along.

      I took a consulting job and currently getting into it. It’s been kind of difficult since my previous job was also the first one (last 4 years in it) and I was very familiar with the network. Now I need to start all over again: learning the subnets, who manages which servers (Big Enterprise), where are the servers, etc..

      Well, I’ve just received my token, I though they were in museums only; maybe i’ll go to this page to see if I can win something. =D
