    Eh, I suppose if you account for inflation. Perhaps. Maybe.

    My personal ideals and views aside, yes. I think it would at the very least make it easier to move up in an organization.

    I'm not saying you'll make 200K this year, but in 10-20 years, I bet you could.

    I think to go further up the chain than sysadmin, I am going to need a bachelors degree.
  3. A'bom
    December 2, 2013 02:10:20 PM
    Oh, you're still working toward your bachelor's. I failed to notice that part of your post. I have a bachelor's degree, and I don't make anywhere near the low end of your estimate. My mom's a pharmacist working full time and she doesn't make anywhere near the high end. Divide both numbers by two and then you're looking at something more realistic.

    If you think you'll get a sense of accomplishment out of it, go for it.

    Heh, heh, heh... oh, I would have done that long ago if I could have. I am a sysadmin, yes, but I'm also a contractor. I'm not paid to do things right, I'm paid to do what I'm told to do. Thank God I'm working with people who know the right way to do things so I at least have an idea of how a functional environment is set up.

    I really don't want to go back, I want to take the lazy way out, but I think that a bachelors degree will be the difference between 80K and 200K. I also would like to get it so that I have the self accomplishment of it.

    If you are the sysadmin, then install RSAT on your client, enable a GPO that enables WinRM Rules and apply it on all of your servers. Can do everything that is not hardware related right form my desk, Since a good chunk of my servers are also virtual, I can also power them off and on. As long as a both of my hosts don't go down. I can be lazy and sit here.

    I'm a systems administrator too, specifically windows. The environment isn't conducive to it, to be honest... you have no idea how much easier the lives of all of those I work with would be if we could simply have the ability to use powershell remoting to manage remote servers, but nooooooo. That's apparently too much to ask for.

    As for going back to school... if you want my honest opinion, save yourself the time and money. Instead of breaking your back for a little piece of paper, dedicate your effort to the job you have and prove yourself there.

    Congratulations on the promotion; I can't say I have any such bragging rights, but I'm simple (minded) and am perfectly content being on the bottom rung of the ladder. The way I see it, the less money you make, the more likely you are to be kept when it comes time to fire people.

    Congrats on the year job. I am doing well at mine, I recently got promoted to Systems Administrator. I'm busy as can be.

    I got a new(er) car abut two months ago. I am going to pick up my new glasses on my lunch break. Other than that, nothing too new has happened. I went back to school, now working towards to my Bachelors.

    It goes decently. Looks like it's been over a year since we last spoke. Oh, how the times change. I have a job now, and will have been there exactly one year tomorrow. I got my college loan paid off and got a new computer, and still have a bit of money left over. How are things on your end?
  8. Buoysel
    November 12, 2013 05:39:31 AM
    Long time no chat. How goes life?
  9. A'bom
    August 9, 2012 09:41:43 AM
    Alright. I'd prefer to do it sometime without the others, though. While I have nothing against bronies, it would be rather awkward to try and partake in discussion of something I don't have any interest in.
  10. Buoysel
    August 9, 2012 06:20:44 AM
    I live 3 miles west of Oak Park Mall. The reason I was asking about being a Brony is that I have plans to meet up with one possibly two and I was gonna see if you wanna join.

    Hell if we both live so close to the mall let's meet up there again.
  11. A'bom
    August 8, 2012 08:56:01 PM
    I live a little closer to Overland Park. Remember when we went to Oak Park Mall? I live in that general area.

    And no, I am not. Sorry dude.
  12. Buoysel
    August 8, 2012 07:58:48 PM
    Well I live down in Lenexa. iirc you live in North KC right?

    Before we deiced on a location, I must ask, are you a brony?
  13. A'bom
    August 8, 2012 04:42:37 PM
    'course I still live in Kansas City. My soul is bound here. Where would you want to meet at?

    Client Support, huh? My mom and aunt think I would do an incredible job with that (I once helped my aunt find a word processor on her computer and she thought it was the greatest thing ever), and I agree with them, with a caveat--while I'm good at explaining things in terms so easy to understand that little kids can know what I'm talking about, I have a bit of a phobia of speaking over the phone, but I could probably get over that in time.
  14. Buoysel
    August 8, 2012 11:46:26 AM
    Wanna meet up for lunch or to hang out some time? (that is if you still live in KC)

    Don't feel bad. It took me a while to get the job. It took me two months and at least 50 applications. Just go to Monster and submit to everything that is remotly close to what you went to school for. That's what I did. I went to college for Enterprise Admin. I work as client support (aka I forgot my password, or how do you attach photos?). -_-; *
  15. A'bom
    August 8, 2012 09:43:47 AM
    Hi Buoy. You've got a job now. Wow. That... really helps my self-esteem. I've been out of college for almost a year and I don't have a job. I want one, but I'm just so awkward and lack confidence and ugh... it bites. It's good you've got one, though. I'd feel lucky getting just about anything at this point, really. v-v
  16. Buoysel
    August 7, 2012 06:14:42 PM
    It has been far too long, I keep forgetting about the websites I use to frequent because I have been so busy. I am finally out of school now though. I have a job and I work less hours than I use to. So much free time I must figure out what to do with. Oh, and I live in Kansas City now.

    So how are you hows it going? Hows it been? we need to catch up. I'll try and get back to this site soon.
  17. A'bom
    May 20, 2012 03:20:29 PM
    Thanks Buoy! Yeah, it's been a really long time, hasn't it?

    Time does fly, I can graduate in September with a Diploma from Brown Mackie, or I will graduate with an Associates in May. If I graduate in September, I can start a 4 year college this winter, other wise it will be next fall before I get the change to start college again.
  21. A'bom
    June 30, 2011 05:13:37 PM
    Graduation. It seems like just yesterday I was starting high school... time flies.
  22. Buoysel
    June 30, 2011 05:10:18 PM
    Graduation, or the classes again.
  23. A'bom
    June 30, 2011 04:00:34 PM
    Pretty well. I'm starting my last semester of college on Sunday... Not exactly looking forward to it.

    Its a convertible, the top will have to be replaced, one of the side mirrors is busted, the windshield is a loss, the hood is not dented, but the paint is chipped from the hail, there are several dents on all four corners of the car. as well as some of the trim is dented.
    Some of the dents are deep narrow dents, the dents easily pulled out are ones that are more bowl shaped. We might be able to pull a couple out, but not most of them.
  28. A'bom
    June 2, 2011 08:51:34 AM
    Dang, that was a nice car, too... It looks like it's mostly window damage, though. You might be able to pull out the dents with a plunger... maybe? I don't know much about cars. Just throwing out ideas x3

    128 MegaBytes, not Megabits, there is a difference, and Google's speed is 1Gigabit which translates into 128 MegaBytes / per second.

    I get 6Mb down which means 700KB/s >.> I wish I lived in a bigger city.
  39. A'bom
    April 1, 2011 11:07:18 AM
    I already get 54Mbps. It serves me well enough. However, having 128 would ease the load on the network as a whole and prevent my internet from dropping from time to time. I guess that'd be useful.
  40. Buoysel
    April 1, 2011 10:56:17 AM
    Ultra fast? Try 1Gb downloads. (128MB/s)
  41. A'bom

  44. Buoysel
    March 30, 2011 01:24:10 PM
    Are you excited?
  45. Buoysel
    March 24, 2011 12:44:28 PM
    Me too, it was stressing me out, I actually fond the test rather easy. My fired who took the test before me barely passed, and that was adding some stress to me, but I did really good.
  46. A'bom
    March 24, 2011 11:32:25 AM
    Well, I'm glad you passed
  47. Buoysel
    March 24, 2011 11:22:48 AM
    >.> blah, I took the test too fast, I ended up waiting two hours, but I passed so thats all that matters.
  48. Buoysel
    March 23, 2011 08:11:08 AM
    So how will I contact you to let you know when I'm out of my test? the only major problem is that I don't know when they are going to show up to pick me up. I'll probably get a call when they get there, or when they are on the way. I'm not sure how you want to do this.
  49. Buoysel
    March 15, 2011 11:10:21 AM
    Yay, okay just let me know It will probably be closer to 1 when I get done with the test, but only time will tell for sure.
  50. A'bom
    March 15, 2011 08:32:45 AM
    Hm... 24th... Thursday... around lunch... I don't THINK I'll be doing anything. I'll keep it in mind as the date draws closer. I should know by Monday of next week. There's a good chance I will be free.
  51. Buoysel
    March 14, 2011 09:12:28 PM
    What are you going to be doing on the 24th a little after lunch? I'm going to be in KC for a Certification test, I might have a few minutes/ hours after the test to kill, want to come hang out at the Metfalf S Shopping Center in Overland Park?
  52. Buoysel
    March 14, 2011 11:46:32 AM
    We got three or four inches of it in no time, it was some crazy driving too >.<

    It was, but it stopped and now all the snow is melting.
  54. Buoysel

    Is it snowing in KC?
  55. Buoysel
    March 10, 2011 11:15:53 AM
    lmao, I soft reset for nearly 30 minutes to get her. I don't care about nature, I just want to be able to have a team of Futachimaru latter on. > buahahah
  56. A'bom
    March 9, 2011 10:50:39 AM
    I envy your female Dewott. My Oshawott is a male, but all things considered and how difficult it would be to fight both rivals over and over until I got a female with a decent nature, I just stuck with my bashful male. C'est la vie.

    I do not have a Zebstrika yet. I have a blitzle, but he's only at level 23.
  57. Buoysel
    March 9, 2011 10:30:09 AM
    lmao @ mojo jojo I'm gonna evolve my Dewott somewhere between 40-50. I like her too much to let her go, but I still love her evolution too.

    Do you have a Zebstrika, man they look so cool.
  58. A'bom
    March 9, 2011 10:01:47 AM
    Oshawott. I'm nihilistic like that

    Sometimes I refer to him as "Oshie" or, more frequently, "Wottie"
    However, my brother (though he didn't TECHNICALLY nickname them) calls his Pignite "Porkloinio", his Patrat "Fat Faec", his Pansage "Mojo Jojo", and his Roggenrola "Dented Blueberry".
  59. Buoysel
    March 9, 2011 09:51:11 AM
    haha, I had the most trouble with her, idk why. Every other Gym leader I steam roll, but her I lost three times. I'm working my way through Clay's Gym right now. This should be a piece of cake. BTW what did you name your Oshawott?
  60. A'bom
    March 9, 2011 09:19:13 AM
    Nope. He's a level 23 Oshawott. They don't stay in their little cute forms long enough for me, so I keep them from evolving until around level 30 or 40. None of my pokemon have evolved yet, and I'm standing at the entrance to Nimbasa City.

    In other news, my brother's level-17 roggenrola single-handedly defeated Lenora. It was FREAKISHLY epic.
  61. Buoysel
    March 8, 2011 09:03:48 PM
    Got your Dewott yet?

  64. A'bom
    March 1, 2011 09:30:38 AM
    Pretty well. I found out MS Excel is, like, the best calculator on the planet, so statistics is going to be much easier now. I'm apparently an assistant chat mod in the RP room on VRIM now, so that's pretty exciting. I'm very excited for Sunday, as you already know. And how about yourself? how are you?
  65. Buoysel
    March 1, 2011 09:10:25 AM
    We should chat more on here since I can't be on MSN very much.

    Yeah I though of awesomefacefutachimaru last night in class and when I got home I was bored so I whipped that up.

    And I liked all of the names except Tepig, which I don't think I am going to like anytime soon. But we'll see.
  70. A'bom
    November 23, 2010 11:01:26 AM
    ROFLMBO at the faec Futachimaru!

    I was upset with Oshawott at first, but it grew on me very, very quickly.
    I actually like all of the names, with the exception of tepig. It sounds alright, but doesn't make much sense to me.

    November 5, 2010 03:54:26 PM
    Alright. Maybe I should just send my drawings to you before I post them so you can fix them from now on
  82. Buoysel
    November 5, 2010 03:52:09 PM
    Yep thats good enough... I'll smooth out some of the edges during coloring, and shadow will make the stance look better.
  83. A'bom
    November 5, 2010 03:49:08 PM

    I hope that's good enough for you. I did my best, but the stance still turned out a bit wonky.
  84. Buoysel
    October 31, 2010 12:14:22 PM
    Yeah but Typhlosion is big enough to make a great personal heater and bed/pillow all in one, with Quilava its body size is simply not large enough to heat you by simply hugging it.
  85. A'bom
    October 31, 2010 11:59:03 AM

    Cyndaquil's nose is too long (though it's still cute). Typhlosion is way too bulky for my liking. The body is too wide, looks kinda hunch-backed, and the limbs are stubby. Quilava is a perfect balance between the two. That's not to say I dislike typhlosion; it's a pretty good special sweeper.
  86. Buoysel
    October 31, 2010 11:56:09 AM
    I wasn't showing you for the Quilava, look at teh awesome Typhlosion!!!! <3333
  87. A'bom
    October 31, 2010 11:46:25 AM
    CUTE Futachimaru in that one picture! In the cyndaquil-line one, they messed up; quilava has three spots on its backside.

    I don't know how to do that yet, Bui. I've only been working with CSS style sheets on my own time for three days.
    I don't have web design software. I have to do this by going through notepad and opening the file in a browser.
  93. Buoysel
    October 24, 2010 06:55:01 PM
    you sure... its not that hard.

    Set the table color to transparent instead of the hex color code then make the background image to the one I just sent you and have it repeat both horizontal and vertical. Text is white and you can play with the BG image later
  94. A'bom
    October 24, 2010 06:51:10 PM
    Oh, wow... Sorry, Bui. No can do. That's beyond my scope right now. I'm still getting the hang of simple re-colors! I'll get to that some day, but not for a little while yet!
  95. Buoysel
    October 24, 2010 06:47:11 PM
    Okay forget what I said about the colors before hand, I bumped a button in and changed the colors back to Black and white and it look really good, so here is my idea. a grey (a darker shade would be better than the one I have in the example) fading to white as the background color, then you could also put something ontop of that image (as shown by the scryble) and finally you have the tables with a simi transparnet image (click to downlaod the one I made for this) with white text... Would make a greate BW theme for Gen V add a nice custom banner and wala: BW theme.... so?
  96. Buoysel
    October 24, 2010 06:20:27 PM
    Background blue or light blue, text white, and tables use an image that is black that is about 20% see through... I can't think of the excat word but I can show you in a few minutes.
  97. A'bom
    October 24, 2010 06:11:38 PM
    Sure! Ultimately, it will depend on if Cat likes it. I'm glad to do it anyway, though! I can use the practice.
  98. Buoysel
    October 24, 2010 06:10:05 PM
    Can i make a suggestion for one?
  99. A'bom
    October 24, 2010 05:20:29 PM
    About a week. It's pretty simple right now; I hope to make them a little more complex as I get better at it.
