The Random Admin
Welcome to the random admin. We are a collection of random system administrators who enjoy teaching. We also like helping small local businesses grow using technology as well. Please pull up a seat and take a look around. We have a wide range of topics to dig through.
I am David and I am from South Carolina. When I was a small boy, my father handed me two floppy disk drive that was the size of my head. One had the OS and the other had a sonic knock off game. He told me if I could get it to run, I could play it. I had more fun getting it to run than playing the game itself. My love for computers was born that day. A few decades later I take pride in teaching others my trade. I enjoy watching the growth of others.
In my lifetime I have seen and gone through many things. I have an deep understanding of my own mental health and I am able to translate it to my work. This has helped me help others grow in ways I was never expecting. My goal with the random admin is to blend mental health and Information technology together. I will do this through stories that will bring both IT knowledge and an understanding of self.
