What if I did a report and no one noticed?
Well, two days ago, that’s just what happened. I do the regular check of all the backups for our company. I mean everything. I check all our local servers as well as all 35+ remote servers. Then, of course, I do up a report in Excel and e-mail it to everyone. Seems fairly important, right? Hmm, maybe not. On Tuesday, I was up to my ass in alligators and was all the way home before I realized that I hadn’t sent the report out. I created it and dealt with most, if not all, of the problems on it, but I never sent the e-mail.
But no one noticed!
So, why do I send out the stupid report? Why did I get chewed out a couple of months ago for not doing it “right”, even if I was doing it the way I was “trained” to do it? If a network admin falls in the forest and upper management isn’t there to hear him, does his resume make any sound?
Well, at least it’s a job.
