I stupidly accepted a new office next to the printer room.
Other employees would dash into the printer room on their way to a meeting, then curse and pound the copier because it wouldn’t print. I heard them shuffling around and knew it was only moments before they would lean out and ask me for help clearing the paper jam.
This happened five minutes before the hour—every hour—from start to end of business day.
The day they moved the servers into the printer room was the day I moved my office. I was not interested in learning server maintenance, and certainly not interested in rebooting the wifi.
You may not have the option of moving your office—or you may be one of those unfortunates cursing the printer. Possibly you have an IT staff dedicated to helping out—if only you can describe what’s broken.
In all cases, you’ll benefit from learning about servers, networks, and IT in general.
And you’re in luck at lynda.com.
