Topics I've Started
26 November 2012 - 10:00 AMI've been running into a bit of an issue lately:
As part of my day job, I've been parceled out to other departments to do various things. Everything from update web pages, create Wordpress sites, configure web hosts, register domains, etc. In the course of it, I've been given and/or created a massive number of user accounts and passwords for various services. I've also been given the details for several procurement cards (corporate credit cards) to pay for needed services (hosting, domains, email blast, etc).
Keeping up with all of it is so overwhelming! I've started organizing all of the information into an Excel file, both so that I can provide the details in an organized list when I leave, and so that I can hunt them down for myself. However, this seems *really* insecure. So far in the file I have 6 procurement card details (these are no-limit cards - In a previous job I purchased lab equipment worth over $50,000 on one) for various departments, and over 100 account details, many of which are tied to said cards. All protected by an easily-cracked spreadsheet password.
There's gotta be a better system. For those with experience in this type of situation, how do you both organize secure client information?
02 September 2012 - 03:06 PMHey guys,
I'm in the process of researching potential internships for Summer 2013. A few examples of ones I'm interested in:
JPMorgan Business Systems Analyst
Deloitte Business Technology Analyst
Boeing Systems Analyst (or, with luck, Process Analyst)
GE ITLP Program
Looking at Glassdoor and around the internet, the interviews for most of these internships tend to involve a lot of project management questions such as life cycle questions, development patterns, project scoping. Although the roles themselves aren't as project managers, they involve having that basic knowledge in order to make informed decisions in that area.
This is an area that I'm at a major disadvantage, as I'm not pursuing a degree that would normally lead to this type of role. Those of you with experience and/or formal education in this area, could you direct me to some resources that I can study up on to familiarize myself with these?
Also, if you just so happen to know any US internships are similar to those posted, you're more than welcome to share.
22 August 2012 - 08:29 AMI need to set up a server environment (probably Ubuntu, possibly Debian), and it's been almost a year since the last time I had to do this.
This is going to be Apache-based (for compatibility purposes).
I recall that I generally used an
apt-get install lamp-server^ vim-fullcommand to take care of the bulk of it. Can anyone refresh my memory on anything else I need to take care of? Config optimizations, ancillary packages that are useful, etc?
I also remember running into a helluva time setting up a mail client to work as an outgoing server only (as incoming mail is handled by Google Apps, and the DNS is configured accordingly). I don't recall which mail packaged ended up working out. Any tips there?
I have a speech bubble that displays a blockquote: http://jsfiddle.net/CrXYc/

Do any of you agree, disagree with it? I found it a really interesting read, but as a person that's only dabbled in programming, I'm not sure if it's just PHP hatin' going on, or if the language is legitimately that messed up. My main experience lies in a slight amount of PHP and a bit more C#, and I did have a preference to C#, but that's simply an empirical preference.
