Lol if only that woudl work for us, as our 'mandate' is coming soon.   Currently i just tell them my laptop is closed ( even tho its actually in the closet, as im using a VM, but same idea, its not availble for use ).  I have a webcam thing i pull out every so often and make sure it has 'issues' they see, so i'm good for a few meetings before i'm asked again :)

Tho, i did mess with Avatarify a bit in the beginning. That was fun showing up to a team meeting as Tony Stark. Had to find something for my GPUs to do now that i cant mine Ether.  :)

I guess I got lucky.  I am doing what I love professionally, and I get paid good money to come up with good ideas that people are eager to listen to.

Yeah, me too - until my segment of the industry got almost entirely outsourced and they figured out a way to get a fraction of those of us who remained to manage a data-center full of multiple companies servers through the cloud. 


The idea of being an IT staff of 3 or 5 guys managing a datacenter with hundreds, maybe thousands of virtual servers for multiple different clients all sharing resources and support time just never sounded like as much fun as being part of a team of 15 guys who were responsible for 10 environments in a data-center full of hundreds of engineers managing hundreds of environments. The whole ratio became unfavorable - not that it wasn't a lot of work and long hours back then, either. At least you almost always had company during the 18 hours over the weekend in the DC.

Man I envy you so much.

Nobody ever listens to me. When there is a problem I have a college degree for and I tell somebody my opinion, it is disregarded. Then that somebody calls their cousin who "knows a lot about of this", the cousin says something that is 95% similar to my first opinion, and they go with tyhe cousinC's opinion because "Thank god I found somebody who knows this stuff."

Story of my life.

Do not work for that boss. Do not work for that job. Find someone who values your expertise. Make the sacrifices to be happy in your job. 

It isn't your job you hate. It isn't your profession you hate. It is the disrespect for your profession from your employer who doesn't value your field or your expertise, that you hate. 

Life is too short to work for someone who won't respect and leverage the benefits you bring to their company.

Heh. "If you walk into a room full of people and they all think you're an asshole, you may be in a room full of assholes." 

"If EVERY room you walk into, all the people ALWAYS think you're an asshole, they may not be the problem." 

:) 

But, know and love thyself. :)
