I find things to laugh about in the strangest places. Looking at a job advertised for “system administrator” I found these details:
- “You thrive on new technologies and take the initiative to incorporate them into your work”
- “You will have an administrative knowledge of many or all of the following: Win2K, NT, XP, Unix, SQL 2K, Exchange, DNS, DHCP, IIS, IP Routing, Security and AD Policy Management. A+, MCSE, or CCNA certifications are a definite asset.”
No Vista or “7″ anywhere in there… Chuckle I don’t know where they are hiding the “new technologies”. Maybe it’s NT.
No kidding. That roundup sounds a lot like a place I worked in five years ago, in a school in the Arctic. It’s a different place but equally locked-in and at the bottom of a deep hole. I wrote them once about using IT in education. They have a high rate of IT staff turnover. I explained what I would change in their system if I were on the job. They did not reply…
