Not a big surprise....
Social media makes it easy to share a gripe about your boss or workplace. But is doing so a fast track to a pink slip? Find out why you might want to pause before posting negatively about work.

Snowy day had me thinking. What if Kennedy threatened or even just hinted to the Soviets that ALL the 'newly formed' S.E.A.L. teams would have a ninja/photographer's mate assigned to them and THIS is what made them back down.

Story
Tagline
Honesty, Open-mindedness, and Willingness. It may seem easy but to live by these 3. After being a jerk for so many years, it is tough.
Introduction
Happy, Joyous even, and FREE.  A hitch in the Army paid for college & then I had it ALL, including a habit. Trying to secretly kick it on my own was a disaster. I lost EVERYTHING including my freedom. With a firm program and a healthy amount of clean time, trying to make amends, build a life, and help the still suffering addict! My 9th step is never-ending. Some forgive, some don't. Oddly enough, 2 folks who never forgave, well one is dead, I never actually did anything to either but one still digs putting me down. My sponsor said it isn't up to me whether someone forgives or not. 99% of my desire to stay clean and sober is for me children anyhow. Long-time MCSE. PROUD member of the KISS Army since 1976.

Employment
  • Ardua Networks, LLC
    President, 2014 - present
    Trusted Professionals NEED IT Professionals They Can Trust We specialize in smaller offices that need confidential services, affordable off-site back up, plus support who understands HIPAA compliance .
  • Veterans Place
    Systems Admin, 2012 - present
    Providing solid, affordable IT services to an organization dedicated to serving my fellow veterans and their housing needs. I finished the design, and am in the middle of implementation, of a network that supports this mission. Assisting a great staff in doing their best with friendly and enthusiastic level I, II, and III technical support. A dynamic executive with skill, vision, and brains that permeates the entire team. A great job at a great place with an awesome (in the true definition) mission. Pound for pound, we are the best Veterans Assistance Professionals on the planet. We may even be the best in the United Federation of Planets. A little more tweaking and we WILL be the best in the UFP. Even socialist countries do not match the services we give my fellow veterans. One of the most challenging and enjoyable positions I have had the pleasure of serving.
  • Deptartment of Veteran Affairs
    Info Tech Specialist, 2010 - 2011
    Handling 1/3 of all level I and II support calls for the Aspinwall, University drive, Highland drive, and Federal building sites for the Dept. of Veterans' Affairs. I am famous for my politeness as well as my skill with every user, regardless of demeanor and/or rank. I can honestly state, without any sort of qualifiers, that my technical skills are only exceeded by my people skills. It was GREAT training. I supported the rudest, laziest and ungrateful folks on the PLANET there. I never lost my cool, not even close. I do not miss working for the gov.
  • TekSystems, Serviceware, Mellon, Alcoa, UPMC
    Independent Computer Consultant
    Completed work on time with no loss of data and a strong skill set regarding all current operating systems. Expert proficiency in Windows Server 2003, XP, Vista, Office – all versions. A veteran of many successfully completed projects for UPMC. Very familiar with desktop applications unique to the health care industry. Migration and upgrade projects for servers, workstations, and wired medical appliances. Giving the client whatever they wanted. Planning, implementation, support, and any other hardware, software, or network services including cabling. Very much like my current position of helping clients get the most out of their current environment safely and securely. Solid services from the router in the closet to the keyboard in front of the user, and all hardware and software points in between.
  • MediaSite
    IT Director
    Stabilized issues between the proprietary software and Microsoft IIS 4.0 running on NT 4.0 sp6a. Reduced IT spending, by moving the IT group out of the Customer Service Department. Honestly assessing problems required not only strong technical skills, but also tact, diplomacy, speaking, writing, and organizational skills. The position helped strengthen writing, developing, and evaluating technical reports and procedures and also solidified my customer service skills. This was done while managing two PC technicians and ten help desk analysts.
  • ServiceWare
    Sys Admin
    Installation and support of NT Workstation, NT Server, network OS using TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, and AppleTalk protocols. Supported 200 users in 5 business offices as well as 10+ SOHOs. Extensive hardware and software troubleshooting, and upgrading performance of networks experience. The company’s commitment to backward compatibility kept me in step with operating systems long retired as they developed into what is on the market and in common use now. Developed and authored the company's original DRP for the IPO. SOme of the best times of my adult life was there with some of the best people.
  • Mellon Bank, N.A.
    RLB Supervisor, 1987 - 1995
    Ran a shift for the area's largest lockbox at the time. Scheduled, counseled, and motivated a variable staff with a variable workflow. Attained a reputation for running a tight ship, always clearing the oldest mail first and keeping the environment professional and safe.
