The Geeking Thread

Who else on here is a geek?

Gaming, computers, whatever that may be classified as a geek, put it here!


I have been practicing programming for about a month and half now. I work at a tech company, and we had an issue with a single task taking quite a while. We have a TON of servers, and one check had us pouring through anywhere from 30 - 80 servers to check configs. 98% of the time, there were no issues.

So I took it upon myself to code a solution. It is easy, but wasn't easy for a newb like me to code.

Basically, the user uploads the server list into a text file. The program imports that data into a list. The master file (which has server names and IP addresses) is imported in the program. The program takes the servers to check and runs them against the master list. It then outputs the data to an HTML file and opens itself in the default browser. Whoever runs the program will get an easy to click list that opens up the web interface. We used to have to look up each device one by one in our address management software. It would take at least 30-plus per lookup. That adds up quite a bit.

I learned a lot from this task, and it also refreshed me on older basics.


I love coding.

Nothing wrong with that!

I jumped into IT not really knowing what I wanted to do. My job is mainly networking and server stuff. However, the more I jump into programming, the more I want to do it. In short....I sense a slight career shift in the next year (as long as I can land that junior developer gig).

Not only do I enjoy coding, but I also want to make about 30K more a year and work from home. So being a programmer is gold to me. Do something I enjoy, not have to commute, save $$ on gas/maintenance/mileage, and work in comfy clothes!

Fun part about having a sup who isn't as into coding:

"You can just type that, so I'd say keep it simple and copy/paste the data"



Whelp, I am no amused..........

I kinda just downloaded junk myself to allow my code to run to make my job easier lol

Oh, and I also got the green light to use the code at work. Suite!
