Work Avenue / Re: Current job vs. Potiential new job
« on: April 23, 2019, 10:48:35 PM »
Yup. A friend and I were once asked by a company to jump ship and go do IT work for them.  It would have been a 50% increase in salary too. Problem was, this was a porn company.

Lol, is this porn company called Digital Playground?

What is your work ethic?

If I was just going for pay...I wouldn't be in this country anymore.  :-X

I kind of want to change from being a Desktop Engineer to a Systems Engineer. I always been into servers and managing them. Well when we talk about bling bling money is the thing, we all want more. But I want to spend the next 40 years doing something I enjoy and waking up to...

So, I have been approved to hack our network and do some testing. We have a vendor that is suppose to help and call use if they see suspicious activities like this and now we stopped getting support from them. So the boss and the CIO wants to test out if our vendor is worth it. My part is to make it seems like I'm doing things but need to not make so much noise. Has anyone used KaliLinux before?

Work Avenue / Current job vs. Potiential new job
« on: February 26, 2019, 04:57:39 PM »
So here is my situation...I'm currently working as a IS Desktop Engineer at a company that sells health insurances. I get paid 52K a year and my annual review is coming due. A good buddy of mine from a old job that I worked at has referred me to a job opening they have at his company he is working for. They are hiring for a IS Systems Engineer and pays $60k-70k a year plus quarterly bonuses.

Could I get anyone's view on this if I should still stay where I'm at or give it a shot. I've only been at my current job for 6 months now. Is it always wise if they ask why I'm job hoping that I say I was referred to by a good buddy who works in their company?

Give me your $10k
I will kick you in the balls
And you can go on your way

Do not buy this rat poison

These crypto are just for loading up to buy drug and illegal stuff
Donít put your life saving

So you're saying I should do stocks instead then?

From reading some articles, it seems like Bitcoin will hit at least $1,500 before it actually isn't going to be affordable to the general population. I'm not sure if I should jump into the boat right now at $3,993.39 or wait until it dips to $1,500 to jump into the boat....

Hmong Stories / Zaj in St. Paul, MN

So I've been listening to Zaj stories and I've also hear a lot of stories about Phalen Lake having dragons. Does anyone think this is true? And I also hear that it also depends on your last name? A lot of the ones are Xiongs, Lees, Yangs and Vangs?

If your spouse starts to lose chemistry with you when falling in love, what does this mean? Like 10 nights you can only make love to her once. No more then 30 minutes or she stops.

Computer & Technology / Re: $1,700 Rig
« on: June 28, 2016, 03:50:01 PM »
Time to ditch that CD - Rom now... lol  Most rig don't bothered it anymore. I myself still have one but haven't use it ever since. You can buy one USB but rarely need it unless you still use CD's. Seem your motherboard is outdated? Buy yourself a new cooler fan for your I 7. I purchase zalman cooler fan for 50 bucks. They made a big different.

I thought about that but i was like ah what the heck why not just it. I think this motherboard is pretty nice. It played well with Watch Dogs and max specs.
