Living in rural Colorado, I own my own business for I.T. Support which covers everything county and city related, and most other businesses. It is something I do during the day.
This account will mostly be me posting the Docket as I call it of the day, and then random tidbits of the good and bad of doing support tech work for people.
I may also post on side-projects of mine with the Pis, programming (Py), and Arduinos.
I'm formerly the G, currently the T of the LGBT+
Btw been a bit but had a fun mess this morning.
Apparently somehow one of my businesses had one of their desktops change the DHCP client in services.msc to a delayed start.
So they would start it up, and it wouldn't be immediate for it to get an IP address etc.
So they would get frustrated at having to wait an extra minute or two for everything else to load, before getting on internet.
I am curious how this got changed won't lie

where people can submit compute jobs (e.x. compile this piece of source code, simulate this protein fold),
and other people can do them using their spare compute resources.
Maybe even for payment, though that has its own problems.
This way, people who occasionally compile code don't need a massive CPU lying around, they can just borrow someone else's, saving silicon.
