A pair of WS-X45-Sup6-E. I can't tell you more than that because I don't log into the core switches, that's the Network Engineers territory and I can't pee higher than him

Man, I really liked the Super Blue. I'm rather disappointed you can't get it anymore.

Clutch uses the same fluid as brakes. Whatever you're using for that.

As mine is strictly street driven, and I don't autox, I use whatever name brand is cheapest.

IMHO, the fancy high-temp brake fluid is actually the wrong choice for the clutch. It'll work, but you don't need the temperature rating and it just absorbs water faster than necessary.

Sup6 is a good choice.

Not that it would surprise me if the infamous "Florida Man" were in the news for something outrageous again.

Well, what I thought might be a 1-2 week delay has turned into a 6-8 week delay. The company I'm hoping to join was just purchased. The recruiter said that they've been told to expect no changes in day to day operations, but until current management has finished meeting with the new ownership, they can't proceed with any hiring decisions. On the plus side, she did tell me that they interviewed many candidates for three or four open positions, and I was (am) one of two candidates they are planning to extend offers to. I asked if there was anything I should do over the next weeks to stay on their radar, and she said, "Oh, don't worry, you are on our radar."

In other news, I helped interview (over the phone) a potential hire for my current department today. She listed, among many "accomplishments", managing the rollout of custom-imaged laptops for a disaster-response department for a large corporation. When asked, "I see you managed a custom-imaged computer rollout -- what where you using to build the image?", she replied, "Windows 7." When my boss said, "No, what we mean is -- what imaging software did you use to build and update the image?", she said, "Oh, I have no idea, some other department did that. We just connected the new laptops to the network and selected the PXE boot option."

Why do people list things on their resume that they can't back up?

Because a lot of resumes are automatically selected by keyword matching, so to have any hope at all of getting through that a candidate needs to list every keyword he/she can think of if it's at all plausible.

Managing the rollout doesn't mean she claimed she did the custom imaging. Two separate things. You saw "custom imaged" and latched onto a descriptor.

I helped implement the purchase and installation of IP based phones for my company. Doesn't mean I designed the phones or even did any IT type work (beyond plugging them in) at all.

Are you set where you are for the time being? They aren't going to kick you out or anything? Then you've got a golden opportunity. Use those 6-8 weeks wisely.

If they (meaning your direct boss) knows you are leaving, but still sees you putting in effort and being diligent, that goes a long way towards looking good in his/her eyes. That's a contact you can keep for many years when you need that glowing recommendation for another job someplace. One lesson I learned the hard way as a contract worker was not only to not burn bridges, but to maintain the ones you had in the past. It just might be the "networking" you need down the road.

Eh, semantics, but...

1. I wouldn't have a problem if she said she had "helped" with the rollout. If you say you managed something, to me that means you were either solely or largely responsible for that thing. A far cry from, "Well, someone else designed the whole thing, I just plugged stuff in."

2. This was merely one example of a pattern throughout her resume. She "installed and configured Cisco routers" (eg, she helped someone else and remembers how to reboot the routers, but nothing else). She "managed mobile device inventory" (eg, some other department handed her an iPhone to set up email and hand to a user, and when the iPhone was turned back in she handed back to the other department). The entire resume was stuff like this. I asked every question I could think of and could not find one project or system that she was actually responsible for.
