A colleague pointed out this CIO interview from Business & Leadership and I thought it was good for a laugh. Keep in mind, not counting developers, this IT department has two employees — including the CIO. You might call that position an IT Manager.
I learned quite a few things by reading this article:
- Running 64-bit Vista prolongs the life of desktops — evidently restricting instructions and memory access down to 32-bits is known to prematurely wear out silicon.
- A good Hyper-V consolidation ratio is to go from 18 servers down to 8 — does that mean 2.25 VMs per host?
But here is the best part:
If you take a one-year break from teaching, what happened in 1014 hasn’t changed when you come back. If I decided to go on a year’s holiday, I would come back to find a 15-year-old doing my job twice as well and I’d never catch up.
