Just another sad, but unremarkable tale of a bright kid who squandered his potential and ruined his life by turning to a career in IT.

Since first embarking down this dark path, I've done a little bit of everything, from small businesses to large datacenters, Linux to Windows, networking and security, DBA roles and, in my darkest moments, even some light mainframe operations.

These days it's Microsft products paying the bills, for what difference it makes. Whether it's a multi-domain AD environment with tens of thousands of users, a small cluster of Linux webservers, or a tangled web of network cables, systems are all just complex tools to do complex jobs, perpetually in need of someone to make them perform better and ensure they're always available when someone needs them.

Since being a lawyer seemed too boring, being a doctor seemed too hard, and my idea of a good time usually involves using a powerful computer anyway, I really can't imagine doing anything else.

Recently certified Genius of network:

Dear HopelessN00b Genius of network... it's easy for you to speak. If I could explain my problems in my language probably also an hysteric like you could help me, but in another Language (english) is no easy for me. Anyway thanks, I'll continue to try online. Ps. I make this job from 1998 when you were probably coming out of college. So before to speak... think!

Well, more importantly, why do you want the port explicitly in the url?

comment CPU Sockets vs. Cores
Unfortunately, pulling the socket might not be a feasible approach. These days, most servers assign RAM DIMMs on a per socket-basis, so you may end up not being able to use all your RAM, or having to buy higher capacity DIMMs. Also, Oracle licensing is painful. And evil. And generally a fate worse than death.

comment Remote Desktop Software with low latency for thin clients
We don't do product recommendations, "design my [blah] for me," or suggest painfully unprofessional options like "better solution[s]" require switching to a decade old-OS. Do it right, or don't do it at all... and from the looks of things, you're so far from doing it right, you're not going be able to get any help here.

comment Outlook shows 1600 emails for user but exchange shows 4000+ emails for user
If you can't manage the Exchange server because you're an intern, you need to punt this to the Exchange admin who can actually investigate this issue end-to-end (assuming, of course, you've done your due diligence and made sure it's not something like synchronization still being in progress on the client) ... or get those rights yourself. I'd punt. Less work involved.
