Happy story: Four years ago I went from unemployed for almost a year, to a lovely factory job just to have something, to an office job, to getting IT certs, to making almost triple what I made before any certs. Sometimes things do work out, but I wasted all of my 20s and part of my 30s in awful jobs when I should have just gone right to IT in the first place.

I work at a healthcare company which does IT for radiology centers. Over the past few days, one of the centers got one of their scanners replaced. However, they ran into an issue yesterday with the new scanner where the images were being scanned upside down. The vendor for the scanner decided to fix this by replacing the computer connected to the scanner with another one (not the easiest thing to do since the scanner computers are on XP and the rest of the center's computers are on 7 (no, I don't know why they're on XP)). Everything works fine after that. However, the computer didn't actually need to be replaced. Would anyone like to guess what the issue was?


Salt the earth.

They didn't install the correct printer/scanner driver on the XP computer.

The thing that was holding me in biggest of all was just more money. My fiance broke it down nice and easy for me though, and reminded me of what I already know: Bonuses don't exist. It's the first thing that's going to get axed the second the company has any hardship. Don't budget for it.

Once I took that bonus out of my consideration, it really wasn't worth it.

I once had a boss tell me that instead of a raise, I could get a bonus! Sure, money I can't count on and that will be taxed out the rear end is the same thing as an increase in pay, thanks.

Exit 69 for Big Beaver Road is in Michigan, off I-75 in the northern part of the Detroit metro area.

Big Bone Lick State Park is in Kentucky, however it is off of the similarly named Beaver Road, which if you follow it east from the park will take you to the town of Beaverlick. Coincidentally if you follow Beaver Road further it ends right next to an offramp from I-75, but it's exit 171.

While I believe you and am in great Shame of my mistake, I am positive Iíve seen an exit 69 for Big Bone Lick Park somewhere in Kentucky, maybe off the main road. I remember because I about died laughing because I am 13.

Good luck Nerdrock. All kids are different. My first would wake up for an hour+ if you flushed the toilet or squeaked the floor. Multiple times a night every night for the first six months. My second has been sleeping through the night since day one other than feedings. You just donít know what to expect.

Also you may need to sell your motorcycles anyway because your wife is going to want that space for strollers and wagons. Plus you will have zero free time to ride.

What is the best private VPN provider and how do you research them? Iíd ask in the IT questions thread but Iím a few thousand posts behind. Nord VPN is offering 3 years for $99 (better than the SA deal) but I donít know if itís actually good.

For torrents, TorGuard is the best. I can keep connection for days.
I got their VPN for 2 years for $50 (so $25 per year) with 50% off code: TGLifetime50
7 days free to try.

1. First go to their home page: https://torguard.net/index.php
2. Up top click on Anonymous VPN
3. Top-right Annually 59.99 Buy VPN
4. Next page will show option for 2 years: $99.99USD Biennially
5. Follow prompts, enter promo code, and so on.

I once helped nasa solve a backup issue with a system on the ISS.

They were using a disk with 4K physical sectors on an OS that didnít support it. It was causing VSS to freak out and fail randomly and intermittently.

The astronauts swapped a few drives around between systems and requisitioned a new one.

So there is a hard drive in space because of me.

Iím already on the space force.

A true Space Force computer janitor would have saved that hard drive to reassign to an unknowing end user because your boss thinks ďit might still work.Ē

No, mine is the devs that have the balls (or complete lack of self-awareness) to push code on a Thursday night and then ask why the system is running like poo poo on Friday morning.

Is it the network? Or maybe DNS? Is the server running slow?
