February 20, 2014 – No Title

You’ll have to forgive me for the total lack of a title…

At the moment, I’m creating a virtual machine using Windows XP, in Hyper-V on Windows 2008. It brings back memories to when my job was 70% about networks, 20% building websites in Joomla and 10% maintaining clients’ networks. I enjoyed the network part of my job just as much as I enjoy playing with Joomla. I am not really specialized (or certified) in any area which I guess is both a blessing and a curse (Pro: it makes my job far more interesting – Con: Who would hire a guy who knows “a bit of everything).

Tinkering with virtual machines, network setups, studying network topologies, the seven layerse of the OSI model… those were good times.

This blast of the past teaches me something about my job. There isn’t really an aspect I don’t like. Managing servers, creating sites, writing marketing… It’s all enjoyable as long as I am not under pressure by others to get things done as fast as possible. I tend to get frustrated easily when that happens. WHY U KEEP MAILING ME?

Of course, it’s not all “perfect”. I opened a remote desktop session to the Hyper-V server, where the XP machine was installing, and got stuck because I couldn’t send commands to the virtual machine because the remote desktop kept executing them. Hmph. But I found a workaround like I usually do, so life’s good. 🙂
