I build custom desktops and servers for small businesses and set up their networks. Also websites and "IT".

The amount of SMBs that are wanting to upgrade from Windows XP Pentium D/4 machines to Windows 7 and decent specs are pretty active and my main business clients. Put in an inexpensive 120gig SSD and store all their files to a network server, it stays speedy and they're super happy because they know these desktops will last as long as their XP machines.

Web graphic designer/finished artist for a large consumer electronics retailer. Basically making advertising banners and other such graphic material for their online channels

I'm a contractor so technically i work for someone else, but the retailer buys my services (three of us actually) from my employer. My employer provides and maintains an internal system to control the briefing, review and upload of art to the coders as well as the appropriate staff (such as myself) to fulfill the artwork/code orders the coordinators require.

Not that bad really. There's a big reality show on right now that the retailer sponsors so requested artwork has shot up recently to keep up with developments in the show, so there's plenty of work to be done and the day passes quickly.

The SSD's are only like $60 for a 120gig SSD with Sandforce controllers from Sandisk or PNY or a decent Kingston.

The usage is typically turns on at 8am, turns off at 5pm, uses the browser, just about all documents and files used are used by the Server network drives. Defragment schedule and indexing is disabled. Only files typically written to it are for the setup installation files for browsers, plugins, AV, quickbooks, office, and reader.

And typically can't a SSD still be read only past their writing to limit?

recent Kingstons are great SSDs for the price. Speedy and decently reliable. I've used a few.

>>43278533
I disable page filing and hibernation on them too.

Also WIndows 7 won't be supported very long. They will upgrade and typically upgrade their machines with them.

Some HDDs don't last that many years in a work environment anyways and replacing a SSD in 5-7 years for $30-40 isn't a bad trade for their constant speed in usage.

There is a lot of time wasted in waiting for the computer to do stuff. That's fully paid off for itself with a SSD in the time they save over several years.

There is also less risk due to mechanical issue from the HDD failing due to factory issue or by someone knocking over the tower while on.

All in all, it's not as bad as you make it. It works well for those 5-6 years with a minor cost to replace the SSD drive, that they will not need cause they will replace the whole tower to upgrade to new CPU and ram speeds. Every SMB I come across does a major upgrade every 5-6 years or so to their desktops.

I'm going into college soon, don't really know what I want to do. I've been programming for a long time but the only time it's really fun is when I encounter an interesting problem. I've also done some home networking stuff, set up a DNS server on an old laptop and learned some stuff about TCP/IP, not much though. I'd say I have a lot of Linux experience, I know my bash and have done some pretty interesting. Do you guys think your jobs as Network Engineers are challenging? I don't care much about the pay, I just want a job that would be challenging and I'd love to do networking since it's interesting stuff, I just don't want to sit around and do nothing. Otherwise I'd go Software Engineering or Cryptography for NSA since it seems challenging as well.
TL;DR I don't want an easy job, I want something challenging and fun. is that Network Engineering, or would Software Engineering be a better choice?
>>
>>43278830
>I'm just more familiar with the states forcing their employees to work on 10 year old hardware.
I live in Florida. Even if the computers aren't more than 7 years old, the hardware speed is. Dell towers with Pentium 4s and Windows XP everywhere. Most of them is because they are or were stuck on XP because of custom made programs written for XP written for some fox programming environment made for Windows XP that isn't used anymore. I see it everywhere. Forgot it's name. Many of them are moving to different solutions, some times "cloud" applications for their business while still using quickbooks, office, and file shares.

As for servicing them more often, we'll see about that. I'll be keeping statistics of what parts were in each computer and when they were given to the company. Willing to bet they last to their expected year usage with little service.

Even as a business owner, I want more business, but more new ones, and less returning ones for issues with things I give them. I like the promise of set and forget with background hidden automatic maintenance settings to avoid issues.

Does it give me less work to do? Yes, but I get a glowing response from business owners and they refer me to other business owners. I don't try to have purposely dirty business tactics to get returning customers.

Is this saying that 25% failed in year one, and then 11% more failed in year two? Or is it saying that 36% MORE failed? Not very clear. Either way, a 71% failure rate isn't bad when life gives you 2nd and 3rd tries. it's almost expected of you to have failed before

Yes. Do you have any recommendations for a cheap vap set up for a beginner. I have tried a bunch of cigalikes they are all terrible. Literally every single one whether it was disposable or cartomizers just too weak for me.

>>43274611
And to stay on topic I do freelance work from home. My main gig is as an independent contractor for a company that does web search evaluation for Microsoft's Bing.
>>
>>43284561
In my experience, cooking basics is the most important [i.e., how to over/undercook certain things so that the flavors come together properly, make basic sauces you tweak], lots of it is trial by error, DON'T fucking waste your money on CIA or the like, find a good experienced chef to work under.

Make it your own.
>>
>>43284563
Cigalikes are shit. All of them. I bought a blu, went back to analogs in a day. Bought a provari after and haven't looked back. 6 months smoke free $1500 saved.

eGos are a really good starter option. Make sure you get something that is either Variable Voltage or Wattage so you can adjust vapor production and throat hit to your liking. An Itazte MVP would do fine as well.

Neither of those are your higher end options, but honestly some of the better gear isn't suited for the average person. If you want to get into building coils and having some real fun look into a Nemesis clone or Chi-You or any DNA30 device.

I live in my parent's basement and go to community college. I start real college in the Spring semester where I will major in accounting. After that, probably get a masters in financial analysis. I plan on working with large datasets, do math and statistics type stuff, computer simulations, visualizations, business intelligence, etc. in the business world. Or maybe that'll turn out to be much harder to break into than I thought and I'll still have my accounting degree and a lot of mostly useless knowledge about computers, programming, and statistics.

I was sysadmin for a small company growing to mid size. It was going good, being as I was in college classes with the director of IT (we were taking windows server around the time they were finally transitioning out of novell). Then he found out he had stage 4 cancer, died, and left me in charge of a company doubling its floorspace in the next 4 months.

Did I mention I didn't have any formal certifications or a degree yet?

After a year and a half of stressing out over making the correct decisions, and always being asked for the cheapest solution, I decided to get the hell out of there before I made a fatal mistake due to my lack of expertise.

I helped them interview my replacement at least so I know they're in good hands now.
