...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 all that it entails. So our main networking or whatever guy had a chat with a few of us last week and said it'd be a good idea if we, during our copious amounts of down time, would watch these online videos and start getting certified in some IT areas. Okay, so it's not a… Continue reading Certification
...and praying I get to keep my job that I love so much. A lot has been happening within and without Jinxie's World these days, and on the outside, in the really real world, work is one of those things. Changes, they are a-comin' within the techiesphere of the school district I work for, and… Continue reading Cleaning House
...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…
...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
...or should I stay right where I am? Last week, after the bossman finally made a decision on the new hire to fill my old contract, my actual physical position in the area was apparently up for discussion in the back. Jinxie: Where's the new person going, since J's taking up the only other… Continue reading Should I Go?
...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
...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…
...because we want to know, not for us, but y'know. So my boss is one of only two men in my small little help desk area, and he's a riot. If I can ever get the chance to record one of the conversations between him and my ex-neighbor in the back, I will share with… Continue reading Are You Available?
...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
