Administrative Rights and Viruses

This is strange and confounding, but seemingly something that clearly makes sense when put up to basic scrutiny. The pitch, as Karl Palachuk puts it, is that Windows users who are not locally administrative users cannot be infected with viruses. This is an absurd and wrong line of thinking from someone who professes to have been in the IT industry for more than 25 years. But, we can all be wrong, so I say own it Karl. I’m a little surprised no one has actually discussed this much up until now. 

What Does It Take To Be A Great “IT Consultant”?

penguinI am an Information Technology Consultant. Yes, that’s my day job. I manage, maintain, repair, and work with all kinds of technology in the Greater Toronto Area. I’ve, in the past, mused on the different aspects of what it takes to be a Consultant (self employed or not), whether it be the dark side of the craft, various essential tools, or tips on how to work better. But, one topic I’ve never broached is: What does it take to be a great IT Consultant?

What are kinds of skills and qualities do you want to work at to be the best you can be in this (at times) difficult line of work? Are you interested in starting your own business in IT and wonder if you can do it? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

There are no more results.
