Old School

Spent my day building a Windows 2003 Server with SQL Server 2000 (SP3a) on an old PowerEdge 2600. Good times. Don't be too jealous.

RigPix Database - Radio Reference Site

I like The RigPix Database as a quick reference for a lot of different radios - including some of our Chinese favorites in the Other ham radios section. It doesn't have every radio, but it has a bunch and we all know how hard it is to keep up with the Anyfangun KG-UV5R$-5888P releases.

(I was sure I had posted about this site before, but I didn't see anything with a quick search.)

IT Generalists

Scaling lessons from Google’s CIO — Cloud Computing News:
"In the question and answer period that followed, Fried elaborated on these concepts, telling someone that IT generalists are probably born, not made. He said at Google, the company looks for folks that want to keep improving their skills, and even has a program to help give those people the tools to be better engineers when they find those traits in employees. He said the Google culture is one where the general engineers who understand the system have a lot of input and power, which is a cultural shift that organizations that want to build at scale should try to implement."
We are all becoming generalists at our company. When there are so few of us, you have to learn a little bit of everything.
