The beginning

Thought I'd try this blogging thing.

I've been working in the computer field for awhile now. Lots have changed since my first computer, the Commodore 64.

Being a Mr. Mom takes up most of my time right now, but I still do remote computer support. Most of my clients are over 3,000 miles away in Hawaii. I figure I'll take advantage of this capability before people in India compete for the job.

It's amazing what you can do with a Remote Access card in a server these days. A month ago I completed a Novell Netware Small Business 6.5 migration all from my home office. The servers and workstations were in Honolulu. The remote access card allows me to map the physical CD-ROM drive to an ISO file on another machine so I could install any OS I wanted. With these cards you also have complete keyboard, mouse and monitor access as the machine boots. You can interact with its BIOS or SCSI or RAID cards.

Anyway, this blog I hope to begin typing misc. troubleshooting and solutions I'm doing in hopes that it might help others. I wish I had the time, I'm sure all the past computer work I've done could help too but no time to type those out...let alone if I could remember all the details.
