And of all printers, Zebra label printers are the worst. They have almost literally no competition in their usage space, so they just keep making the same poo poo printer with the same poo poo firmware forever.

please tell there is a replacement out there, we have zp450, zt410 and zt230s, and i hate all of them.

I have no idea what your skill set is, but getting a job as an IT professional shouldn''t be a problem. You'll be in for a serious culture shock though.

So TeamViewer is poo poo and I donít want to go near it, but does anybody have experience with similar services to TeamViewer Pilot? It seems like the market is either TeamViewer with the issues they have, or an *~enterprise~* solution that you need to ask for the price of.

Ideally the person being helped would be able to download a mobile app and tap in a code, no messing with creating accounts.

a good replacement is bomgar, thank me later.

The CIO has mandated that everyone under him must take an IQ/Aptitude test. He sent it out today and its due tomorrow. No, he didn't think that some folks are going to be out because of vacation and other reasons. No, he won't give allowances for them to take it when they get back. He says "its an automatic fail".

I don't know how you fail an IQ/Aptitude test exactly. I don't suspect he would pass though.

you could also claim that mandating an IQ is illegal under the american with disabilities act since those with low IQ are a protected class

Welp, what a wild day. I had a long winded post in mind when I sat down to type this out, but my work life at this point has had so many changes so quickly that I can't even keep up with them myself.

Long story short, an employee that I helped find and infosec job got me lunch date with the CIO of his current company while he was in my area. The CIO gave me an offer of a Director of Information Security for about 5 grand less base than I make now. It does however include 32 PTO days, 12 holidays, and unlimited sick time. It also includes a health care package that is so good my wife almost cried because of how lovely both of our coverage has been for so long.

Its also completely from home and I have never had a silo'd infosec job, much less a leadership role in infosec. Oh yeah, also healthcare when I have never worked in healthcare. Jesus take the wheel.

I start the 6th. I have no clue how to break it to the people I work for or the people who I got jobs here for when I made my last exodus just a month ago.

after reading the infosec thread only thing i learned was keep all passwords in plan text, roll your own crpyto, and don't let your people set their own password just send them what password you create.

I remember nothing on IPv6 except FE80::/10 and relearn what I need to do whenever I interact with it, which is rare since I don't have to interact with it often.

Even though it works and is actually easier than IPv4 once you get the hang of it, I refuse to bring it into the internal networks basically anywhere because change is bad and scary for most people who do not want to learn anything new ever.

or you have some devices/software that just throws a fit when it sniffs IPv6

I LOL at the $17/hr entry-level "Desktop Support" jobs that outsourcers keep throwing at me from LinkedIn or whatever (I am Desktop Support, but I've been Desktop Support for enough years that I'm really more than that now, whatever the title might be), and you are doing stuff *way* above that level. Not only in complexity, but workload. I mean, they fired/lost all those other folks, and clearly can't program or document their way out of a paper bag. You are their only saving grace. Demand more or and GTFO (because they're not going to give you more.)
Never hurts to just throw your name out there. Interview on lunch hours, whatever.

Man I been with the same company for 3 years now and only make 18.50 for network 1/helpdesk and had to fight for the extra .50 cents

I'm underpaid but in my position as a public employee at least I am underpaid with raises slightly above inflation.

Y'all motherfuckers need some "communism".

before this last 50 cent raise i was getting paid less after 3 years years and obtaining a ccna then when i started if you look at raises - inflation. Now i make about 0.3% more then when i started.

So, from an infosec perspective, what tool would you use with the following requirements?

Remote to users without much/any interaction from them.
Can handle UAC escalations.
Can connect to machines off the network/VPN.
Doesn't cost a fortune.

I do not know about the last, but the first 3 are handle 110% well by something called BOMGAR. Its the best thing since sliced bread.

Nobody gets mad about that. You'd have to label things differently for every municipality since you can have state, county, and city sales taxes.

people do, the advertised price should be the final price, just include tax in the display price.
