Currently WISH I could wear the following hats:
System Admin - SuSE Linux, Windows 2000 server, WinXp.
Network Admin - Cisco routers, and various firewalls.
Security - Virus, adware, malware, trojans, hacking prevention.
Trainer - All in-house training for 100 user company. All applications and PC usage.
Software tech - Install, maintain and update software on all PC's.
Hardware tech - Install, maintain and update all PC's.
Web Admin - Create and maintain company intranet.
Programmer - Cobol programming (rarely now) and HTML.

This all started in 1998 when I was hired as a programmer for the Y2K re-write. System completely written by my boss and is an intigrated network of 700 odd programs accessing about 800 data files. Got it done, even though many didn't see how I could keep that straight. I did.
Then moved as assistant Systems/net Admin.
The primary admin got refocused to other tasks, so I got primary spot.
As the network grew, the hats started falling out of the sky and that is how I got where I am now.
Many of the things started as me doing all the tasks that weren't "fun", that no one else wanted to do. Then I was given more and more as people were content to hand off the crap jobs to me. I like doing that stuff.

20+ years experience in the field.
2yr degree in computer science.
BA in Networking with a Cisco core.
MACE certified.
Getting ready to take CCNA/CCNP tests. (still)
Postponed my plan to teach the Unix/Linux/Cisco classes. Life happens, ya know?
Have taught at the community college all office products by MS, Lotus, and Corel, and now teach these in-house.

Member since: 2003
