The first week back at work

Well, it's been over a week now, and I have to say--it's great to be back at work! I know it's not as glamorous or "prestigious" as working at Clear Channel, but the nice thing is, when that last bell rings, my day is OVER (if I want it to be). I don't have weekend or holiday work, and I am the ONLY person there that does what I do. I'm the #1 man for the network, and man, is that a fucked up network!

It appears as though my predecessor was somewhat of a hack, and rather than fix things the right way, he would use duct tape and paper clips to hold things together just long enough to get approval from the superiors. I've found these truths to be no more literal than in the very computer that controls the entire campus--internet, email, network--it was literally held together with duct tape, and had paper clips holding in the CD drive and the floppy drive. What kind of shit is that?

So I have my work cut out for me. I have to clean up the mess that Hackboy made, as well as get all 65 of the student lab computers up and running. Oh, and did I mention that I have exactly one week to complete the mission? worries. If someone like him can do it, I know I can do it in my sleep with both hands tied behind my back.

So, that's the report for now. Check back next time, as there will be some nifty gadgets to show...if I can get them to work! Until next time...
