Training Day

...because we hired two new help desk guys and I'm the bitch training them. There goes the neighborhood. My Director has already poked his head over the wall of my cubicle and said, "Oh, you're the one corrupting him" when I started training the second new hire. Yeah, I'm so loved. *winks* Last week, we had… Continue reading Training Day

And This Week’s Virus…

...reminds me of Dr. Mario. Did you play that? It was like Tetris, but with drugs . . . gods, it all makes sense now. I'm kidding. But really, in the world of cyber viruses, the same goddamn program as last week--or whenever the Malware started--is giving me problems this week, only it's a different… Continue reading And This Week’s Virus…

Malware Found

...and this is what I've had to deal with for the past week. When I find the little bastard who created this, I'm strangling him to death. I will kill him until he dies from it. I'm serious. This particular beauty affects only the one program--InTouch--so far, which also happens to be the receipt program… Continue reading Malware Found

I Can’t Find Anyone

...and where the fuck did they all go? We've been dealing with construction in my building for the past week and everyone has moved. The issue with that is that I can't find the people I need to talk to for a quick question/answer because they've all moved to somewhere else on the property, which… Continue reading I Can’t Find Anyone

How Many IT Guys…

...does it take to move a desk? Well, that depends. So, the entire IT (or IS, as we call it) department/building is under construction...All. At. Once. I came in Monday morning to insanity. Try listening to someone on the phone in the midst of sledgehammers pounding drywall and wood around you. But first, most of… Continue reading How Many IT Guys…

I’m Already Here

...so I can just change my contract, right? Friday, April 4th, I had an impromptu interview with the Director of my ginormous department because I had applied to have my contract changed to the full year one. Right now, I'm on the same schedule as the students, and that'd be great to have summers off… Continue reading I’m Already Here

Hilarity Ensues…

...in the form of ignorance when it comes to computers. So last week, I heard this from another cubicle: "There is a physical power button, ma'am . . .  no, not the dell logo." And this was my reaction... It gets better... "Ma'am, what kind of computer is it? No. Do you have a tower?… Continue reading Hilarity Ensues…

Smoke and Mirrors

I love that the clients/customers in the district who call me think that I'm this great and powerful sorceress, but it's really all just smoke and mirrors. They call, expecting me to perform miracles within the precious few minutes they have before their next class comes in, parents show up for a meeting, or prior… Continue reading Smoke and Mirrors
