I guess I’ll start off with a little about what this blog is to me. Overall, this is just going to be a place where I can post helpful items for myself. Throughout my career in IT, I quickly came to the realization that no problem is so unique that someone else has not run into something like it before. There have been hundreds of blogs, forum posts, and listservs that have helped me over the years in the myriad of problems I have run in to. To give back to the community, I have decided to post my solutions to various problems I come across. I do this in the hopes that somewhere out there, another IT guy will be pulling his hair out, trying to solve some problem, and through the magic of the interwebs he will land on this site, which may provide him the hint he needs to solve whatever is vexing him, and make him seem a genius to his boss.
Please, feel free to use and distribute anything you find on this site for whatever your needs require. I wish you luck, fellow traveler, since I’m sure if you are on this site you are approaching desperation in your search for an answer to that problem someone on a forum somewhere experienced, solved, and then never bothered to share with the world what that solution was.
I leave you with one of my favorite comics from the geniuses at xkcd.com:
