Default Howdy!

Hello all.

So, after 20 years of faking it in the Air Force, I now have a job as an IT tech support dude--still sort of faking it. Found this site while googling some issue that we came across, and found some good advice, tips, and tactics.

So figured I should sign up and stop lurking.

I still don't know what I'm doing most times, but I'm managing to get by!

Welcome aboard, or whatever you flyboy pukes say. I've got a good buddy who retired from the USAF who drove a POLtrop for over 20 years. He's into database security or somethingtheother now.

Fake it till you make it!
Welcome! I've been here only a short time and I've learned quite a bit and met some very cool peeps.
I was also in IT for a decade or so. Trying to catch up to "modern" IT now, so I can keep up with the new generation, in case I have to go back to working in IT at some point.


My hubs is in the Army.
