One of our ACs froze in the serverroom and my boss messaged me to turn off the frozen one and the server room got to 110°

Do I belong here now?

Need a collab for our zero-cost case study

We've reached a new technical milestone: handling 5 million events per second using 25 nodes with 8 vCPU/8GB RAM. Now, we're facing a challenge in testing this capacity further. Could you or someone in your network help us explore options for testing at larger scales, possibly through collaboration on zero-cost case studies?

Network guy asked me to get a packet capture

So I signed him up for a company sponsored cavity search.

Stay in your lane, network guy.

Thoughts on "Senior" Help Desk Techs - They smell like mung beans & continually talk about CPM & Netware

Thoughts on IT Support / Help Desk Techs with 10+ years' experience

I've been getting a sudden influx of "senior" help desk techs in their 40s and 50s. I've never managed techs older than me, and I need solid advice.

My personal experience with helpdesk was I wanted to get out of it ASAP. I can't fathom how someone can be a helpdesk tech their entire career. Is there a different angel that I can justify interviewing them and see if they are a good fit?

Major DNS issue

Hey guys, we had a massive no outage yesterday, and after a lot of troubleshooting late into the night, all hands on deck, 3 different war rooms working with carrier pigeons on the quarter hour relaying updates between them, we found the root cause was DNS working as per design. We've since deleted 10% of A records at random, but this feels like a very dubious workaround to me, and it's only a matter of time until they are all recreated correctly.

Any pointers on how we can avoid this in the future would be appreciated.

I used to be a sysadmin but have been ascended to manager. I want all communication with me to be in the form of tickets, yet they still email and ping me on Teams. How do I make them?

Microsoft has outdone themselves!

Can I get a thumbs up in the comments for "New Teams" and "New Outlook?"
