As the famous poets, Brian Johnson, Angus Young and Malcolm Young (of AC/DC), once penned: 

"I've been too long, I'm glad to be back!"

First off, my apologies to all, especially  and all the THWACK GEEKS, for my prolonged absence but job hunting five days a week can take a toll on a person.  I'm happy to report, however, that I landed a position with a contractor of the US government doing what I love (SysAdmin work).  Can't divulge too many details or I'd have to, well, you know.

Anyway, this new company uses SolarWinds monitoring tools and though I haven't learned all the details yet, I look forward to jumping back in and living up to my MVP status.

And, BTW, look for more "EARWORM ALERTS" for sure!

Thanks and, oh by the way again, Happy SysAdmin Day!
