    Pay me what some of the IT people I see make, and I`ll sit on a dell box.

    Yes, I`m in IT, however I`m a way underpaid contractor.

    Perhaps his chair is simply still in one of the boxes. Who am I kidding, IT guys don`t need chairs.

    Doesn`t mean he`s not making good cheese.
    Just means he doesn`t have enough stones to grab someone`s chair.

    What about the no respect and getting yelled at all the time.
    And let not forget about all the lay-offs.

    Yes, because working as server support is clearly a highly paid `IT-guy` job... /Clueless about the IT industry.

    What about the no respect and getting yelled at all the time.

    EXACTLY!! Most people in corporate offices have no clue what we IT people do or how we do it, so they usually treat us like crap and cuss us out when their game of solitaire doesn`t work right. :/

    Well if he spent more time fixing those cables instead of being on IAB then I`m sure he would`ve gotten a decent chair and desk by now...

    @Dragonace - You can`t give an IT guy too much respect though. In my experience they think the world of themselves, and usually need to be taken down a peg or two. Example: MacGuffin.

    Also: who the frack cares about the cables in the patch panel? Go ahead tear it all down, knock everyone off the network, spend forever putting it together to look pretty, and in the end...it still works the same (if you are lucky). In a job where a f-up can put the whole company out of work the motto: if it ain`t broke, don`t fix it.

    @turdburglar:
    Yeah, and after this guy gets fired, the next IT guy has to come along and figure out what the hell he`s looking at.

    The difference in the reality of his pay check and what you -think- you`ll be making is as just as much in contrast as the box he`s sitting on and the Kirk chair linked by An-Egg. Prepare for disappoint.


    ...And welcome to hell...Er. IT. (For God`s sake run!!!)
