    hey buds
    yeah, i am studying MCSE Messaging should (should) have it done by
    Dec 07. 8 exams; i am taking it conservatively(3months to study and learn each exam) i dont have any experience with Server 2003; we just got them at work and well learning alot more than just to be a papered MCSE. I think (since I am old) hahah that you have to learn by doing and reading of course. I take 70-270 in 3 weeks; have to only slot open at our nearest testing center ;( but studying daily XP scenarios. and handson.

    thanks; i just got plates for my car; the story goes (not that i am the best
    IT guy out there but you have to be cocky you know to fit in in IT ahahahhahhaahha; i am the oposite very humble IT guy)sharp but dorky;
    I would say when i fixed something catestrophic "whose your daddy!" then
    one employee said IT Daddy; i said yeah! whoseyou IT Daddy!??
    you are robert they said! and thats how my BIG fat ego started.

    I drive a California Pure white Honda CRX 1989....so i decided to
    call my self ITDADDY (humble but cocky) oxymoron right?> hahhaaa

    love these tech forums; lots of cool friends; things can get heated but
    it is a joy to work with such great people! you dudes/dudettes!

    from Wisconsin USA cheese country (not California! though I was born and raised there.

    I work for a USA credit union! we only have 30 servers and about 200 clients. that span 4 buildings by T1 WAN link but we are growing and have
    a Unix box all MS$$ servers 2000 and 2003 and XP and 2000 pro clients.
    and a pure Cisco shop as well switches routers and vpn routers
    not really looking forward to vista

    2007 server i am but not vista!
    i am a command line geek;
    my goal is to finish MCSE and hit the cisco track like a "bat out of hell!"
    i love comman line and see that Cisco engineering is for me; i hope

    hope i can contribute to this tech form all i know and have experiencedl
    we can do it together!

    That's funny! :P

    You sound like me. Old, late starter (I was almost 30 when I got into computers), I also manage a small LAN of 400+ computers and 25+ servers across a 300 acre campus (we connect to the WAN via dual T-1's, but all our building are connected via fiber) and we are all MS/Cisco. I also love command line and scripting stuff. I've been in SC for less than 3 years, but was in Iowa for 14 years prior and Illinois for 7 years before that. I made a few sojurns into Big Cheese country (House on the Rocks, Jetski on Lake, Dells, etc). Always had a good time.

    moreover, i hate have to resort to reinstall methods;
    i really want to find out what really is going on. i am not satisfied with
    "let's reinstall it!" i enjoy findingthe real reasons for things

    I can understand that. If it is your own system, you can afford to do that. But if you have hundreds of sales people who can't do their job, every minute counts. If it can take you 2 hours to restore a system, you don't want to spend 4 hours figuring out what went wrong and how to fix it.
  • itdaddyitdaddy Senior Member Member Posts: 2,088 ■■■■□□□□□□
    i understand; thank god for reinstall but
    i just want to know why?
    yeah, in the real world; reinstall is the option vs
    trying to figure itout when th heat is on.
    i completly understand..
    i am a creature of the "i need it now!" kind of things! icon_eek.gif

    That's so true. I used to do like ITdaddy ( troubleshoot instead of reinstall), but soon realized that it wasn't going to work in the corporate world. People want their machines fixed as soon as possible so that they can get their work done or risk losing business.
