I like these slow times they make up for the
hairy stressfull times when a new Security Patch
must be ditrbuted by a certain time or the "General" will come a callin.
For years we screamed to the gobment about security..... Now thanks to 911 it gets real
exciting around here.

Have your freind check out the "Computer Jobs Store"
During the past year most of the "Paper Tigers" or "Paper MCSE's" have been weeded out, Engineers and Technicians with solid backgrounds and experience are still in demand.
It looks like the end of the down turn is in site now that the majority of those phoney bologna internet startups and fake companies are almost completely gone.
The good news is that it's been 3 complete hardware cycles and 2 Operating System cycles since the Y2K upgrades. This summer and Fall companies are going to start replacing their out of date hardware and upgrade their operating systems. That's going to mean jobs for qualified Technicians and Engineers.
Good luck to your friend...

they always hire the youngest not very
computer literate people to run the computer/network systems.
Nothing against you but I wanted to reach through
the phone an kill a computer guy from my bank the other day.
Nothing against you ISBB I promise.

I really love to work with networks, got a real nice one in my house, but I can only do so much with it. Sometimes end up "breaking" it, just so I can re-fix it, now that is pathetic.
Hey Mike Olichney, don't know if you remember talking with me last June'ish, was one of those guys who bought a bike from CO Powersports that wouldn't make it around the block on a plug. I'll let you know if I happen to stumble upon a couple networking jobs around Boulder here.
Let's see if we can get us poor, network literate, motoriders some jobs!!

you know, your signature line is starting to get out of control. Pretty soon you're gonna have to attach a *.zip file...
I got the emails. Thanks so much. Let me know if you have more great info like that to pass along.

We had an office of about 30 users that had their monitors replaced due to unknown failures. After the 20th monitor failing, we found the culprit. Turned out the monitors were a great heating element for making toast. After enough crumbs dropping into there, short circuit city!
