    Pics from my New Job finally!

    This is where I work at my new job i just started the beginning of this month (Jan.) I work at a local community college on one of the campus's as a Network PC Support Specialist. Basically I am one of the 6 IT/Datacenter guys on the campus that runs the whole campus network and support every single computer on that campus, either for student or faculty. We handle everything computers on that campus, hardware, software, tech support, installation, manage the servers yadaa yadda.... I am only working here Part Time right now, but am Hoping to go full time. That is what I am striving for, If I can go full time I'll get full benefits, a nice salary etc. etc. In fact my boss said he is going to be posting soon for a full time person, cause they need a full time person to work there, so once that's posted of course I'm going to try for it, and I already got everyone's support there that I work with of moving into Full Time, so really once it's posted I just have to prove i've got teh knowledge for the position and do well in the interview. But since I'm already in there I have a GOOD chance at getting the full time position. So I'm hopefull, and will try to get it! But for now I'm just part time there, and loving it!

    Here are some pics I took today. This is my desk there that I'm showing with the jacket on it. I've got a 19" trinitron monitor, but my computer specs suck right now. P2 400, 256MB SDRAM, 10GB HDD, pretty crappy. But they said the whole datacenter is suppose to be getting an upgrade soon, so we will all get new computers.

    That black guy in there is not really one of our team, he is a student doing a workforce development kind of program. He's goes to classes then works down there after the classes for a few hours. So since we have an extra hand now we set him off to make us lots of Network Cables! LOL!!!!!!!1 He's gonna hate us after he's done hehehehe. We will use him when we install some labs next friday, setting up new machines and hooking them up etc... hehehe.

    The chineese guy in the back there is Tai, he is full time and has been working there 1.5 years now, he's a cool guy, knows his networking REAL good, CCNA and all that. The other guys weren't in there at the time i took these pics.

    My desk looks a little sparse because I just got it a few days ago, we had to go grab one that wasn't being used. Mine is smaller then everyone else's, but it gets the job done. I have to find things to bring in to setup on my shelves now, I've never had my own desk/area before

    The other room in teh back there with the computers lined up in a row is where we setup computers to work on like if we need to install stuff or fix stuff, and it's also where we setup our ghost server and manage the main campus servers remotely. Sorry for the blurry pic, i didn't hold the camera very steady, heh.

    There is also a short video i took in there.

    I'll snap some more better pics another day when I have more time.

    As you might guess our campus, and in fact the whole district of the DCCCD (Dallas County Community College District) uses Dell systems. We are 100% dell systems, both on the servers and the clients. We have Servers, Workstations, Laptops all Dell.

    Our new dells's we are getting in now, Dell GX400's aren't to bad

    P4 1.5 or 1.7 or 1.8Ghz
    256 or 512MB RDRAM
    40 or 80GB ATA/100 7200RPM HDD
    52X CDROM or CDRW/DVD combo
    Geforce 2 GTS 32MB DDR
    Ultra 160 SCSI RAID controller card (for future expandability)
    ATA/100 RAID card (for future expandability)
    17 or 19" trinitron monitors
    windows 2000 pro
    all black system

    this is also what the datacenter will be getting, so I'll get one of these new machines too, pretty sweet actually

    what speed shell? don't know what you mean

    we run Novel 5.5 here, soon going to Novel 6 this March

    we do have 2 Win2k Adv. Servers though, but they are used for the E-commerce and MCSE labs, our whole network is Novel, using Novel Netware Client and Groupwise for email
