I had a network before I had internet or the other way round. I'm not a geek, I just like computer games. And computers. We've come a long way since
youtube cat videos and I really do like youtube cat videos.
I can lay cables but I prefer to let others do the cables because my eyes are bad and
it really is hard to get 8 tiny wires to go into all 8 the right holes perfectly every time. Many wasted ethernet plugs and much mumbled curses. I
need a big screen too. No mobiles even if you do call it a tablet.
I once went for a interview many years ago at the largest commercial producer of fresh fruit and vegetable products in jars and possibly cans and bags
in the Netherlands. As a sys-admin, just to be clear. It wasn't as impressive as it sounds back then.
In the interview the guy asks:
"There are 2 computer problems.
1 The boss can't read his email.
2 A production line in the factory is not operating because the computer doesn't work. 10 men or more (some of whom may be working in an artificially
frozen area) standing around doing nothing, fork-lift trucks, lorries, etc.
Which problem do you fix first?"
I tried to take the serious approach. Apparently I gave the wrong answer. In hindsight, I think that was a good thing.
