Welcome to The Lost Ping!

I’ve been doing this IT thing for over 20 years now, and have done work on everything from the desktop, to the firewall and out into the WAN. In the course of my career I’ve found that I’ve forgotten more things than I know. I’ve also had a lot of help along the way. That’s what’s inspired me to start this website. I just wanted to put some of the things that I’ve learned the hard way out there for everyone to use. I wouldn’t call myself and expert in any one subject, but I feel like I have decent grasp on the overall IT landscape. The things I post here certainly aren’t the only way to do things, and may not even be the best way. I’m just putting it out there to hopefully help someone who’s in a spot I find myself in quite often….. stuck.
