I worked as a web developer for three years, but have been practicing my craft for over a decade. I spent a year on the IT side doing contract work for IBM. I now work as an Operations Analyst for an international manufacturing company.

comment Prioritization of requests in a small IT department
This is roughly how we're operating right now, but we've never explicitly stated as such so it feels like we're flying by the seat of our pants every day.

comment Actions to take during/after a power outage
I added a paragraph to my question explaining our environment. We don't have much in the way of development systems. "Last possible minute" is, to the best of my knowledge, handled by Powerchute Business Edition. I've broached the subject of a generator before, but the cost is too high for the handful of outages per year.

comment Slow opening of Excel files on the network
I'm not sure how much time was spent figuring it out, because it wasn't me personally, but I definitely spent far too much time listening to users complaining about it. :)

comment Slow opening of Excel files on the network
I was just going to post about this, but I see you beat me to it. We've been having the same issue here and last night determined it was KB2501584. It seems to be only applying to Excel files; I'm able to open Word and PowerPoint no problem. I can also confirm that Office 2010 is not affected.

comment Automating the rename of a SQL Server
Almost, but @var1 should be dropped and @var2 added. @@ServerName returns the name of the SQL Server instance, while SERVERPROPERTY('MachineName') returns the name of the computer.
