Re: He should be proud that of that guy

I should have known I'd end up in IT when I first became an engineer. I needed some help with a script on the manufacturing system, so went off to have a chat with the IT person in charge of the system. Only to find out that I was actually the most knowledgeable person in the company regarding the data structure of the system (by this time I'd been writing reports on the system for about a year).

Turns out the company didn't have a single DBA type person, the IT department's role was purely to make sure the hardware stayed functional. Probably explains why I got tasked with the company's intranet just before taking redundancy.
