Thanks for the congratulations. God blessed me with this job. My current company got bought out and my last day of work was hardset for Dec31, unless I signed this horrible non-compete that would have kept me out of IT for over 5 years. Anyways, i had 2 phone interviews and then radio silence for over a week. The job offer came yesterday, at the pay I wanted, doing what I want to do, and on the next business day afyer my last job ends. God truly blessed me.
I got a job offer to my dream job today. I start January 2. I will be working on the hardware side of things for a large company that is expanding rapidly. Servers, network, cloud platforms, AI, you name it. The potential for personal and career growth is astounding. This is like going from playing flag (american) football to the NFL.
I bought a pair of Audio Technica Studio Monitor jeadphones a year ago yesterday. They are the m20x. They do well for me.. good sound and loud enough for me to really hear my music and enjoy it. (I have severe hearing loss). Anyways, ear pads are cracking. I reached out to AT for replacements, but would lime to fi e a good replacent that will last longer, if AT doesnt come through. Any suggestions?
Be me... Get asked to install mid 1990's proprietary software on updated windows 10 install. Find that the last install took 3 "IT guys" 3 days to figure this program out. I grew up on DOS and Apple II computers. Im now an "old guy". Started coding and hacking in '85.
I not only got the program installed, but all scripts compiled, installed, running and working flawlessly in under an hour.... Booyah!!!

"But if you ever wondered why just about every terminal in the world is eighty characters wide and twenty-five characters tall, there you go."
And Linux Mint on the 440P
The big computer is dual boot. The new laptop is going to be dual boot ( both mint and window 10)
