The Merc248

Tons of stuff here about absolutely nothing. Read on for more information.

Programming Mishap, First Day Of Work, etc.

Argh, I want to kick the ass of the person who thought it was a great idea to restrict the one server needed to program stuff for programming assignments to the private campus network.

In layman's terms... I need to get on this server in order to do my homework, but I can't get on the server since I'm trying to get on the server from my house. It works fine if I'm on campus, though.

So... they require us to install some sort of VPN software. Only bad thing is that connecting to the VPN completely takes over my internet connection, which isn't all too bad since I can still reconnect to AIM and whatnot, but that also means I can't connect to a ton of other things other than... well, AIM and whatever website on Firefox. Thank God they didn't implement some sort of inane website proxy filter or whatever. ;p

Anyway... I must say, my first day of work last Tuesday was a bit stressful. For those who don't know, I work as a help desk technician over at Seattle University. I couldn't answer like 3/4ths of the questions people were asking, plus I often just got a bit nervous and had to tell the other person that "it was my first day, forgive me, blah blah blah." ;p It went well other than that, though. I know for sure that I don't ever want to touch an IT job with a 50 foot pole in the future, though. I know, my resume pretty much SAYS that I've only been with IT stuff so far, but man, I'd rather program stuff for other avenues OTHER than customer support and automating customer service, etc. etc.

Err... well, there's nothing else to say at the moment.
