Default Dell Franklin's BBQ Event

Any of you IT guys get the invite from Dell? I have been buying Dell hardware for 25 years at the companies I have worked for. It's about time they give me something for all my years of loyalty. Dell rented out the whole place after hours to announce their new line of servers. I can't remember hearing about anyone doing this before.

Can't believe I get to go and not have the long a** lines to deal with.

That is very cool. I left IT a few years ago, but even then too many levels in my org for anything like this to ever happen.

I hope they let us take pics. We have to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

How is life on the other side? IT is all I know. I have been doing it since I was in high school.

I might but I am not the guy to post reviews. I have been to a couple of the joints that everyone loves and raves about. I was not impressed. I think I am just way too picky.

It's funny. Now that I have to deal with IT to support my projects, I think that they are a bunch of idiots more intent on slowing things down than in actually accomplishing anything. Luckily (or unfortunately depending on how you look at it), it is not my old department that I have to deal with. I have a new appreciation for when people feel like they are getting jerked around.

Dell: NO PICTURES OF THE SERVERS!

PL: "Heck with that, I could care less what the servers look like, let's see that brisket"

You don't really think I am going to look at the servers do you? Unless they are serving brisket on servers I wouldn't even notice them.

Several of my former co-workers/employees are in other IT shops now and have found that they do not like the big corporate IT environments. The companies they work for have implemented change control. You submit a request to make a router config change. Then you wait 3 days, maybe 7 and then your change gets approved and you make the change. These guys make $70k - $100k to sit around for hours on end waiting for one of their change requests to get approved. This is where users get frustrated. They think it is the server or network guy holding everything up. I prefer to work in the old school IT shops where I have control of everything and I trust my guys to do their jobs without me watching them 24/7.

I did not get an invite... but I doubt they will fly me from Ohio... However, I have worked in small and large shops, and while it is nice to have access to all systems, when 600 users cannot access something and they look at me, I can say nope, don't have access to that system but looking over my CM meeting notes, so and so was scheduled to make a change last night to that system... buhahaha.
