Sysadmin trained his offshore replacements, sat back, watched ex-employer's world burn


just quit

I have worked at companies where they think they can save a dime with offshore help. I always just quit when they say "we need to you to train these offshore people". I put my resume out and in a couple of months I have a new job. Have some common sense people, if the ship is sinking be the first one to get out. Don't be an idiot trying to find a job when a ton people get laid off and are looking for work at the same time!

Indictment bombshell: 'Kremlin intel agents' hacked, leaked Hillary's emails same day Trump asked Russia for help


poor security

If the russians hacked this in one day, what does that say about Hillary. She sure picked a poor IT firm to setup her server. If the Russians hacked this on one day, so did everyone else.

Big Cable falls into wormhole to alternate universe, sends back blog post about USA's amazing broadband


Draytek Dual band router

I live in Connecticut and my internet has always been terrible. After 20 years I finally bought a dual WAN router. WAN1 uses wireless to a cell tower and WAN2 uses ADSL. Now if one provider goes down I can continue working on the second WAN connection.

I experienced the same BS Jeffery Nonken experienced. I had a DSL outage for 3 Days with Frontier DSL. Customer service was awful. Everyone goes through their service script and nobody really knows how to troubleshoot anything.

Now my internet is up all the time because I have two providers. I'll pay more for internet to save my sanity.
