Boss wanted me to see if it can be used for a work machine. Found out it was his daughter's computer before she left for college :tard:

Fuck it. This thread is going to be a diary of the shittiness that is my IT job now.

So things I can tell you that have happened up to date:
* The "high end computer" they gave me has 8GB of RAM and a full 1TB hard drive
* I work on Windows XP machines because my company is too cheap to just upgrade the other machines
* Our inventory is found on "Google Spreadsheets"
* I don't have a phone at my desk. I'm IT and there is no phone in my area at all.
* The server is located in the bathroom. FML
* "Here's an old box of computer stuff. Is anything worth while?" Yeah these PS2 keyboards are going for DOLLARS on Ebay right now.
* We need to move the server out of the bathroom. I can't state how many things are wrong with this picture. "One day. For now can you stop the timecard machine from making a noise when it's used?"

Called IT Support today

- "So here's the login information for the server. Now I want you to take a look at the hard drive space. Notice how there is almost none left. That's your problem now. The people who set this up were a bunch of idiots."

Manager - "I'm not investing any more money into that thing. I don't even care"

lol :tard:

i spend all day doing backend work then getting berated for not producing visible "deliverables" for the client. I have to explain over and over again, every single day, how websites aren't just a bunch of static pages hosted for free on geocities. I have been applying for jobs...

lol 03-03-2018 11:25 AM

like the other day I made the mistake of making a form before writing the code to handle it and someone had to rush over and tell me it wasn't saving anything.

lol 03-03-2018 11:27 AM

I spent 2 days last week copy/pasting and reformatting the contents of a PDF into HTML. I'm not saying I'm above doing stupid grunt work like that, but I get paid $35/hr and they could hire someone in india to do this for $0.50/hr...

crumbaker 03-03-2018 04:20 PM

Damn you're not Ohio are you, I'll take $35 an hour to do that bullshit.
