TR'S HOT TOPIC: GOOD REASONS TO LEAVE IT

TOP DISCUSSION: I'M DONE WITH THE IT FIELD!
Member AUSTIN316 says: "I regret that fact that I spent 4 years
studying my [tail] off to enter a career that is stressful, demands
never-ending BORING study, and calls for ever-increasing sacrifices of
personal time in return for a job that offers average pay and doubtful
prospects for long-term employment! ??? I know I'm not the only who
feels this and I've decided to plan an exit strategy to leave the field
because I've had enough."

LAST WEEK'S MOST ACTIVE TECHNICAL Q&A QUESTIONS

TOP TECHNICAL Q&A: WINDOWS FIREWALL
Member CONORCARROLL has "a small problem with windows firewall on my
computer. It keeps turning itself off!! I've got Norton antivirus
installed on my computer. I enabled personal firewall on it but I found
it was blocking a lot of programs from accessing the Internet and it
had too many pop up messages (I tried to configure it but gave up after
a couple of days). I am just wondering does anyone know if Norton is
the problem or is it a problem solely with Windows Firewall!"
