Even though I understand hardware and the hardware aspect of networking (you know, setting up routers), I am a systems and software person.
To date, there has not been a system problem that I have not solved. Even when serving as IT Manager, taking over for the CTO and still filling my former shoes, at a high profile financial company in Los Angeles (which will remain anonymous for now), there was not a server I could not fix. And, believe me, there were some serious “not well” older servers left in my care. When the Exchange server went down after a contractor misconfigured it, Microsoft Corporate said it was not salvageable and that all data was lost. There were no “how to” or tutorials online anywhere. But, I came up with a strategy that saved the server and all of the data.
Why was I successful? It is server whispering.
Ok, excuse me while I step away to be ill.
Seriously, I am not here to brag (even though it sounds like it) and I don’t like the term “whispering.” But, it fits…
Hence, this site. More later, eh?
