I feel your pain on that one. I, too, take care of the majority of general IT work. From a development standpoint, I am also responsible for designing, creating and maintaining the databases used by my projects, as well as the servers they run on. The downside is the fact that only upper management is allowed access to the server room, so I must get an "escort" into it if necessary. However, I can do most of it via a VNC connection, unless it's a hardware issue. I also help out with the majority of computer repairs and so forth throughout the facility. I do have employees who I am allowed to disperse to fix those types of issues though. They don't work *for* me, but upper management has allowed me to freely assign tasks to those who are not already busy, if necessary.

This will definitely be a plus on my resumé. If I can work my way up through the company to where I'd like to be, I probably won't require a college education. However, I may still consider going back to school in order to further my career, whether it's here or elsewhere. Smile | :)
djj55: Nice but may have a permission problem
Pete O'Hanlon: He has my permission to run it.
