    Proper answer incoming.... :ohmy

    Title: Network / Server Engineer
    Same job for ages
    Last week I...
    Got very bored finishing a software and licensing audit. Also started some server consolidation to free up more licences for future projects and continued to research a replacement VM product to replace our current Dev/QA solution that is being retired in a year or so. Oh and added to the boredom by manually making registry changes to 25 servers to solve a small windows 2003 server issue.

    I also sold my house and had a great phone interview and confirmation I'm still in the hunt for a job I interviewed for in Jan.

    Not a bad week really :).

    Title: Network Manager
    Length: 6 years 8 years with this employer

    Plenty of scripting this week Vbscript, VBA and had to refresh myself on JavaScript to program PaerCut for our purposes.
    Had to teach ISA a non standard SSL port as well as alter a few firewall rules.
    Setup up a Debian LAMP server to test Joomla and Wordpress
    Tweaked a few of our Procurve Switches configs
    Sorted out college courses for our apprentices.
    Tried but failed to fix a projector.
    Took another look at my proposals for the new budget. Lots of upgrade vs replacement stuff going on and made some reports to give me any information I need.
    Ran off a lot of data from our MIS System.
    Tried and failed to fix the phone system. New part required.
    Lots of the usual printer jamming nonsense.
    Ran a few training sessions for our apprentices.
    Updated one of our install images.
    .... And that's what I can remember, there will have been more.

    I have been here a long time because they pay is okay, I'm home by 4:15 and my journey is 15 mins. I could go elsewhere but that would mean moving and I like living near the countryside :-) . I don't want to be adding 2 to 3 hours to my day commuting so .....
