I cycle the streets of Austin and have been called lance more than once. You're right about the kids though. This city is full of them. Stupid university.

You have to go up in order to come down. Why is the up part always so steep?

Admitted to myself and TS that I was a Fred and was willing to make amends?

All unqualified IT people should be made to work at a car wash for the remainder of their days.

Agreed. At least I would if they weren't so far away.

hopefully not one of those fully automatic car washes... that's to technically complex... more like just a by-hand car wash.

I called a client for a simple install of our program on a workstation, which is a ten minute job. The call took 204 minutes, which included restoring a .bak to SQL 2005. Even that should have only taken twenty minutes, but no one seemed to have rights to transfer some files to the server. This was a very large hospital, where they have a separate person for each IT function. So their DBA, network admin, security admin, and server admin all sat on a conference call with their thumbs...

I really like clients that have one guy to do it all. When he has no one else to blame, he just gets the job done. I went from "Hey, lunch with my girl in 30 minutes" to "Well, done with that call, guess I can go home now".
