Y’know, It’d Be Nice…

...if the guys who dip their fingers into the network and systems would freakin' tell the rest of us just what in the hell they're doing once in a while. You know what I'm talking about if you work in IT. Programmers, et. al., don't bother to tell you "oh hey, by the way, we… Continue reading Y’know, It’d Be Nice…

A Case of the Monday…
