Samson,

Here's an idea of possible new forums you can add, if you find it worthwhile to do so.

Alsherok Server status forum - that announces problems/upgrades/etc.

Adding the 2 below would increase traffic of your site, not that you dont get alot of traffic already, but people are always looking for ways to promote their site, and ways to find more staff.

Mud Promotion forum

Mud Positions forum

Just some ideas for the tremdous spare time that you have.

This forum wasn't really meant to become a general type of place. It was only supposed to be used for AFK, Alsherok, and perhaps some other non-related material. Promotional stuff won't be happening here. This is also not intended to be used as the company web forum either. If you're looking for something geared more toward the community as a whole, hop over to Mud Planet and post your stuff there. Orion has places to post promotional listings already

Oh, and what spare time?

*rewrites Samson's tests*

You don't want to be the administrator of your company's Active Directory network, do you..

a) Run around in a blind panic
b) Detonante a large explosive 3 hours after you leave work on a Tuesday
c) "Accidently" reformat everything to use a *nix of some form and emulate the features
d) Release the hamsters
e) A combination of the above in varying degrees repeated over a period of 4 weeks
f) Give it to Tarl

Answer:

Sorry, was bored
Good Luck Samson

The answer of course is: E and F. Tarl gets to clean up the pieces

And thanks. I'm more than ready now. At the stage where I see the answers and don't read the questions and just sail through
45 minutes to answer 177 practice questions. That's including distraction time....

For those who care - I've now passed the Active Directory test

For those familiar with Microsoft's MCSA/MCSE testing track, my next target is 70-218 ( I forget exactly what this covers ). Since this test counts toward both certs, it's silly NOT to take it. :P

I can't afford to even try. You'd think one that's worked on computers for more than half of his life could get a job in the IT industry. Ha!

Ah well.

(And yes, I am 21... and my first computer was an Apple IIc. I can't remember when I got it, but I remember writing a program on it. I also remember taking it apart and then calling the local MacWorld store and asking if I could upgrade it. The sales rep laughed and laughed and... er... yeah:) )

C'mon! Apple Basic RULED!

Right?

Yes I have, and yes I did ;) I've worked in the IT sector for a good 4 years now since I left university, and I don't particular EVER want to take MS certs unless something specifically requires them of me... with a simple standard BSc in Computer Science (no honours, I screwed that up a bit and fell back on an ordinary degree) I've been a Graduate Systems Engineer, (a short stint at Teaching IT to 11 year olds while I looked for another job) Web Systems Engineer and now a Systems Developer for an ISP

And yes, half my life, at least... I'm 25 now and have been programming and stuff since was about 10 or so, with my first network of 16 computers and a single fileserver running Novell Netware 2.2 to manage at the age of 14

Odd that I didn't own my own PC until early late 1999 or so ;)

So its certainly possible

The climate here in California is somewhat less friendly than all that Trax. They don't tend to hire without certs. At least not today. Had I grown a brain 10 years ago and gone looking for IT work, it would almost literally have been as simple as hacking up a resume with the word "Computer" slapped in it somewhere and you could have been hired on the spot. But I was young and stupid and didn't care then. I care now, and the certs are almost always listed as a requirement for anything around here. Once you're in, the degrees can allow you to move up to higher levels.

Samson, your problem isn't so much a problem of certification as one of location (unless of course moving is out of the question then your problem *IS* certification!) Here in Cincinnati, companies are hiring programmers and other IT professionals with experience. Most of them are paying for their employees to get the certs if they are necessary after being hired. From what I have been seeing, the northern VA area is going through the same hiring cycle. There the companies are mainly military contractors but I haven't seen any special needs for certs there either.
Just a suggestion for desperate times.

What for? Texas is a fine state, if you can stand the tornados and stuff. Their job market is in better shape than California's.

And yes Amalric, moving out isn't a financial option right now :P

Tornadoes really isnt a problem in Texas... far more so in states north of here. The job market is in good shape in large cities... which there are about two of. And just so happen to live in neither of them :P

Heh, I live in Michigan, and the job market here is entirely by word-of-mouth. I happen to be lucky enough to work in a very small linux shop right now, but dread the idea of having to look for another IT job if this one ever goes away.

I have no certs myself (not even the mint ones!), as the one M$ job I had didn't need them, and I've done all unixy stuff since then. I suppose I should try one of these days, even if I can't fork out the cash to officially get the acronym.
