Two big personal announcements following a very long break from blogging:
The first announcement is that I’ve finished another class in the pursuit of my M.S. in Communication! This last class was very focused on projects in addition to all of the required reading and writing of papers that are to be expected with any graduate degree course. I have now completed three of the ten courses!
The second announcement i
I have been awful with blog updates lately. The irony is that I started falling behind once my classes for the M.S. in Communication that I am pursuing started. I am enjoying my return to school, but I did underestimate how much time I have to pursue two blogs, work, family, and my education!
Which leads me to today’s topic of choice: Rebuilding the home lab!
Yes, because I am a glutton for self-inflicted pun
I attend various IT events both for professional and personal reasons. VMUGs are always fun, and the analyst events can be informative, but the local computer clubs are definitely my favorite events. You get to meet a lot of talented people, and you get to hear a lot of different viewpoints from many levels of IT expertise. Beginners looking to get into the industry, retired CTOs looking to mentor others, and every
I have been riding a whirlwind of activity lately, and I am putting a lot of behind the scenes work into this blog. In the near future I will have interviews with other IT professionals, how-to videos, and more dynamic content such as materials created using Prezi. You can already see a small change with the removal of the creepy eyes header on the site.
Hey, the creepy eyes seemed like a good idea at the time! The
This Monday I announced that I had joined the team at Coho Data as a Principal Sales Engineer. Many of you congratulated me, and I thank you for your kind sentiments. This is certainly an exciting change for me!
I have been asked why I decided to make the change, and I can answer that question with two words:
Yes, Atlantis Computing has a software defined solution for storage as well. I am grateful
When life gets tough, and I feel overwhelmed I watch the classic film Rocky. It is a unique and magnificent film with a brilliant story, soundtrack, characters, and so much more. I love the underdog story of unranked boxer Rocky Balboa being given a once in a lifetime opportunity to fight the Heavyweight Champion of the World (Apollo Creed) for the title. The rest of the films in the franchise… have their moments
We all make mistakes, and I have certainly contributed more than my fair share to the collective whole. Mistakes are how we learn best though, and we should embrace them. Sometimes we learn through the mistakes of others. Most of the time we learn from the mistakes that we have made ourselves. With this article I hope to help less experienced IT professionals learn from some of what I consider to be my biggest mist
Big news for me: I have resigned from my position with Sentinel Technologies and have accepted a position with Atlantis Computing!
I am now a Systems Engineer with Atlantis Computing, and I am incredibly excited to have joined the company at this time as I am sure Atlantis Computing will become a major force in the industry. I blogged about Atlantis Computing before, and I was just waiting for the right opportunity
It amazes me how brilliant technicians will devour tomes of administration manuals and reference guides, but might not have read a single book on business or design. Absorbing nothing but technical materials is like working out only one side of your body. You eventually are unbalanced with incredible strength that cannot overcome significant deficiencies.
My library is full of O’Reilly must haves, of course. Who
This Christmas Day I wish you all good tidings and joy. I am grateful for the many connections that I have made with numerous professionals through this blog, and I hope to bring you thought provoking articles throughout 2014 as a way to show my appreciation for your time and shared insights.
May your holidays be fun, relaxing, and memorable!
