Funniest Thing I’ve Seen All Day?

     It’s no big secret — err, well, maybe it is — that I’ve been doing IT work since 1986.  Not your average IT guy, mind you, but the type who gets a Monday morning call, gets on a plane, and goes and fixes something at a semiconductor manufacturing plant in Malaysia, then gets back in time to have a beer with the Pirate Chicks™ on Wednesday night.
     In and out, real fast, get paid.  That’s the way I like it.

     No, I didn’t mean like that, although, I have had my days…

     Last year, I hooked up with the owner of a business of the Adult variety.  She marketed my skills pretty well (no, seriously, not like that!), and I ended up working on a few websites and servers which I probably never would have had they not been so professional.  I mean, these are business people, first and foremost, and if you can keep your head around nudity and porn and do your job, then you’re going to be highly regarded.
     And so it was today that I ended up working on two servers for one such customer, and learning a hosting control panel that I’d never seen before, all the while brushing up on the foreign language it was written in.
     A good day.  A busy day.  And paid in full for my services already, which is almost unheard of these days.

     Today I had time to sit down and catch up on what used to be my regular blog reads.  One of them pointed me towards a “new” blogger, Gina at Life’s Short, where I found something that had me laughing my ass off for a solid half hour.

     I expect great things from this one.  😉

    I love that video, and I’m the only one of my friends that loved Dave over Sammy!

    Oh yeah, and I want to carry your tool kit on your next trip to help out the porn industry! That’s got to be “hard” to do!

    We need to learn more about how a East Tennessee guy gets from rock band to IT! What happened…were you kidnapped?

    I guess some folks wonder how I got from Skycop to IT, but I’m trying to tell the story!

    I was in IT before the band. 😉 Of course, back then, we just called it, “Technical Support.” It was always amusing how some people would call and ask how to hook up their stereo, because, “You must know, since you’re into computers.”

    Hell, it wasn’t so altogether different in those days… Out to In, In to Out, done…

    Yep, I’m the first my family calls too!

    I remember being asked to fix a film projector problem years ago…’cause I was in IT.
