Hacker for Hire

Blog Tastic

Wyatt • • Rants

So this is the product of boredom, gloomy Saturdays, and enough technology to choke a token ring connection. I honestly have no idea what I’m going to put on this thing, but apparently I got it into my head that I needed one. And on that point, I would like to say, there is a lot of crappy blog software out there. Maybe this is just for people who want to host their own blog and not use a service like Blogger, but I swear I went through about 15 different packages before I finally choose one that I liked (Kudos to Tim for letting me know about this one). But seriously, half the blogs that I installed stunk major stank. Most of them due to really bad code, but a lot of the other due to just poor layouts.

But at least it’s something that I wanted to work on unlike work has been for the last week. For those of you who don’t know, my ‘real’ title at work is ‘Technical Janitor.’ Basically, I get asked the proper way to resolve and issue, they ignore my suggestion, someone does it completely different and then after its all fscked up, I get called into fix it. According the the documentation though, I’m supposed to be a Security Analyst (I don’t see why they can’t call it Security Engineer or Architect, but whatever). And do you know what the Security Analyst has been doing the last week? Not security work. I’ve been labeling Ethernet cables and pulling them through a data center. Let me tell you, there is nothing like labeling lots of Ethernet cable to make you think about driving 90mph the wrong way down a rush hour traffic with your boss’s neck tied to your bumper by computer cables. Though on the bright side, I did get to tell my boss that I would quit his company if he every had another client try to make me do cabling again. In closing, I suggest that when you are fed up, you give your boss and ultimatum just to relieve some stress.
