I really, truly need the help of the whole forum. Tomorrow I have an interview at a technical support call center here is dallas texas that supports Cable TV, Computer/Internet, and Digital phone service for multiple clients (not sure which ones). Not onl;y do they p[ay decent and have decent benefits but they have the same work hard play hard attitude that the Tech Department of old school internet providers like Earthlink, World Lynx in Little Rock. The same attitude that all tech support call center had back in the late '90s and shortly after the turn of the 21st century. For reasons involving kids, family, location, etc, etc, etc I have been denied the opportunity to work in such a place since 2001. Now all those reasons have resolved theirselves and I'm free to be a nere do well support tech again having the time of my life and having to be run out of the building to go home, (They have pool tables and an in house internet cafe, as well as dart boards, all the overtime you can handle, full benefits, transit pass subsidy, etc. If I can get mega good thoughts form everybody that thinks of it from about 1:00 to 3:00 pm central time tomorrow maybe they'll not notice that I'm more than twice as old as their average tech and really do have a brilliant ability to talk to people and resolve issues to the benefit of both sides. Man I'm tired of working in outbound sales, and every sinve I started playing with phones seriously a few months ago this has been building up in my mind like the aging of a fine bourbon. Can an old guy get an "all for one and one for all, GO ALTSPEED?" You really don't know how happy it would make me to get even a few encouraging responses while I'm brushing up on hardware and network theory tonight and in the wee hours.
