Windows Server 2003, anyone?  
I just signed up for my first Microsoft Event highlighting Windows Server 2003. I don't really feel like going, but if I have a chance for one prize, that'd be nice. I'll probably end up with a TechNet subscription, if anything.

The other nice bonus is usually getting to go somewhere decent for lunch, for a change (and on the Business account, even). Perhaps I can convince everyone going to go to the Cheesecake Factory.

I spent quite a while last night flipping through the MusicChoice channels. When I had Dish Network, I didn't usually agree with the songs picked for each of the genres. This was not the case with the MusicChoice channels. I really enjoyed the 80s, and New Wave channels, and it gave me more ideas for stuff to download. I haven't fully recreated my precious collection of MP3s since their demise during a horrible hard drive crash.

I still have some 75 CDs sitting beside my computer waiting to be ripped.

I'm still shuddering about this horrible wood chipper story. I didn't believe it at first, but sure enough, it happened.

And lastly, you know it's a good day at work when my other co-workers have been playing Civ III: Play the World and Magic the Gathering for the last two and a half hours or so. . .

What do you do?
If you don't mind me asking, What do you do for a job?

Re: What do you do?
I don't mind you asking at all.

I'm an E-mail Administrator/Webboard (on-line learning) Administrator--which basically boils down to a glorified computer/user babysitter. Generally, most of the work is pretty easy: account set ups, back ups, policy writing and implementation. There are other things that get thrown my way, but the job is really pretty easy most of the time. The toughest part of my job is dealing with inexperienced, and sometimes co-dependent, users.

I also work part time for a local hospital, babysitting their lab offices. Most of that work is really easy, unless a particularly cranky doctor happens to be on.

I also work in a hospital, but I have never had any problem with the doctors, just the stupid people I work with. Your job sounds AWESOME!

Re: What do you do?
I am pretty lucky, I must say.

Probably the funniest thing about my current job is that I basically fell into it, 'cause I casually mentioned to the Director of Admissions here at the college that I might be looking for a job. About a week or so later, I got a call for an interview and said what I needed to make the move, and two weeks later I was here.

Lucky, indeed.

It's a shame about stupid people, since they seem to outnumber the more intelligent ones.

I forget who wrote/said it (probably on a bumper sticker), but I remember something going like, Stupid people shouldn't breed. Most of the time, I think Stupid People shouldn't breathe.

Re: What do you do?
That is a GREAT quote...Which is why I had to use it in my Live Journal entry for today!
