mallie_mcg writes | about 9 years ago I think that my website: http://bugga.net/ is a better place for my rants than slashdot, so wander on over there if you want to have a look, me I might write in here twice a year if I feel enthusiastic. M
We are sorry to see you leave - Beta is different and we value the time you took to try it out. Before you decide to go, please take a look at some value-adds for Beta and learn more about it. Thank you for reading Slashdot, and for making the site better!
I mean really old machines, 486DX66's and P100's.
Im supposed to believe that my job means something when I am asked to get several of these working from a pile of quesionable hardware (reliability, not source).
I mean I understand that making me do it because I am least likely to fuck it all up no end is possibly a complement (if they cannot trust the people who are supposed to do this work, why not replace them?!?!) I have better shit to do to/on/with/at our servers fixing up the internal infrastructure a tad.
So I find out why we have to do this, since the guy who was previously doing most of the sys admin stuff (before I started) left, machines have not had shitty software installed on them every few weeks, major network changes were not implemented every few weeks, so we must be doing nothing, right? Well that how the fucking management look at it. It makes me wonder why i bother trying to do a good fucking job!
Enough of my bitching!
