Employment – Another new job!

Posted in Blogging, Computer Hardware, Computer Networking, Computer Software, Employer Work, Employment, Income, Technology with tags , , , , , , on 2015/06/17 by rmolby

So, this is week four of yet another new job – and I’m loving this one, too.

As it turned out, about 4-5 weeks ago a former co-worker of mine made me aware of a job position, and after hearing and reading about the employee benefits, and potential salary range, I took the plunge and applied.

Low and behold, I got a call in the middle of May, and by then end of May 2015 I was hired and working for the new employer.

I have to say, in some ways this job is easier due to the corporate compartmentalization, and all the pre-built, organized way of doing business. I have virtually no engineering to accomplish, I can shine at what I do best, which is a troubleshooter of computer and networked peripherals.

Add to that the better offering of benefits in health, life and retirement, and I am a much happier camper. So, I can say, I liked the last job very much, and I liked all the people I worked with, but I like this current job better; while I miss the previous co-workers, my current bunch are great, just as relaxed and mellow, and I am in my element.

Thank you to my fellow co-worker for getting my attention and pushing me to apply! You know how you are 🙂

Listia

Posted in Blogging, Business, Computer Networking, Internet with tags , , , , on 2012/08/22 by rmolby

OK, I just remembered one more service I want to mention, Listia.

Listia.com - Auctions for free stuff at Listia.com

Listia.com – Auctions for free stuff at Listia.com

Listia is service where you can list any items you don’t want anymore, and people can either pick them up or you can ship the items to them. What I like is that you are using an internal payment system that doesn’t use dollars, but rather credits. You can then use these credits to purchase items or bid on auctions from other users.

It’s pretty cool, and I decided to auction off a few books I have that I don’t want anymore or have come my way in some way.

So, anyway, come and check out Listia by using this referral link, and if you sign up from my referral link I’ll get a few credits as a bonus and you get access to an awesome community 🙂

Dropbox Followup

Dropbox App

In my previous post about Dropbox, I said I would make comments about Dropbox.

I just wanted to say, so far I’m impressed how well it works, and it automatically uploads all my iPhone photos to a folder inside the Dropbox folder on my hard drive, and syncs them to the Dropbox cloud. That has got to be my most favorite feature so far.

I’ve always needed to backup all my photos, but never really found the time to setup a backup scheme… problem solved, I love it.

Now all I have to do is setup my wife with Dropbox, and get it to sync the photos from her phone, and share the two folders and we will be set in being able to get to each other’s photos.

If you are interested in signing up with Dropbox, please use this referral link and I will get a little extra space. Thanks 🙂

Dropbox – Received Referral Link

Well,

a few posts below I wrote about the Dropbox cloud drive service, and how I would ask on Google+ for referrals, but I never received a response from my G+ posting, but, +Jeff Gibbs posted his own referral link, and I signed up!

So, I will start using the Dropbox cloud drive for a few days or weeks, and then I will follow up with another post explaining what I think of Dropbox… in the mean time, feel free to sign up using my referral link so I can get extra space 🙂

Dropbox service

Posted in Blogging, Cloud Storage, Computer Networking, Internet, Wordpress with tags , , on 2012/07/10 by rmolby

Well, I came across a post on Google+ that Dropbox is raising their paid-for storage limits for their cloud drive.

I didn’t think I would use their service, but read up on the article, and then went to their website, and they offer 2GB of free cloud storage, and with referrals, up to 18GB free space. I posted on Google+ asking for referrals, and if I get a referral offered, in the next 2-3 days, I will sign up and see how well it works.

I will follow up and let you know with a new post on this blog.

Riparian Buffer Zones

I have noticed how when civilization encroaches on the riparian buffer zones, that the watershed always suffers in process, eventually to be reduced to storm water runoff channels and canals.

Being someone that can see the environmental impact of people on nature, I am always appalled by the results of civilization. Lately, I have noticed the effect a lot when looking at Google Maps or Google Earth.

Lately I have thought I should start a non-profit organisation that finds angel investors that are willing to invest into the non-profit, and use the funds to buy up Riparian Buffers Zones, and hire environmentally aware people to live on these lands and to manage them, gathering runoff from the city and filtering it, catching the nastiness like engine oil and tire dust and other gook, and then using the partially decontaminated water to grow fuel crops on small patches and parcels of the purchased land.

In some areas of cities, the runoff ditches would not lend themselves to living on them, but the easement strips along those runoff channels and ditches constantly require mowing and weed management, so they could be used to grow more fuel crops instead, so with some smart water channeling, the runoff water would grow crops, the crops would convert waste water and organic compounds in the water into fertilizer and irrigation, and the fuel crops in turn could be used to run part of the operation’s equipment and vehicles, either in the form of converting the biomass into ethanol to run in E85 vehicles, or turned into Syn-Gas to run electric generation plants which then power some of the operation’s infrastructure.

There are other positive side effects to doing this, one of which is turning areas that normally grow invasive or allergy causing weeds that use up precious fossil fuels (for weed control), into areas that produce a product for the amount of fossil fuels utilized to manage the areas, and if managed properly, these areas would not require toxic weed management techniques or supplies, and the land would slowly become less and less toxic as the biological action in the soil can begin to break down the toxic compounds already deposited on the land.

Then, if we use IP enabled remote sensors and a WiFi private LAN to manage and record the sensor data, we can monitor and manage the Riparian Buffer Zone(s) with minimal personnel, and concentrate on planting and harvesting fuel crops and improving the environment.

Anyway, I needed to record this phase of my though processes, hopefully I can pursue this further in future posts.

Microsoft 6419A Class

Wow, this Microsoft 6419A class has a lot of good information in it, but I have to say, the class is only as good as your instructor.

My instructor, Terry Smith, here at New Horizons in Irving (Dallas), Texas,  is outstanding. He really knows his class material and is able to fine tune it to the students.

If you are working in the Server or Network Administration field and only have experience up to Server 2003 environments, and you are either planning to implement, or have implemented Server 2008, I would highly recommend taking this class, and not to downplay the abilities of any other instructor, but if you are lucky to get Terry Smith, you will learn a lot.

Microsoft has come a long way when it comes to servers and infrastructure, and just like Windows XP and Windows 7, with Server 2008 Microsoft has finally reached a major milestone of functionality.
