I thought I’d be considered as “Entertainment” or something. Silly Websense.

Am I That Sexy?! Hahaha...

I wonder who categorizes URLs: Websense, the company itself, or a blend? If anyone has insight, it would be interesting to see how much Websense customers trust the categories.

I finally got rid of all the accessories tonight: $50.00.

My Civic: Farewell! + My Civic: Her Accessories. = My Civic: After a Facelift.

Time to clean up the desktop and laptop for a re-build.

First Week on the Job.

Everyone has been asking, “Tom, so what do you do now?” and I have been giving generic answers like: “creating tools to drive our business” and “security, policy, and operation solutions” and those answers suck. Here goes an attempt, with links and product names…

One of our products we provide solutions for is Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager, aka “SCCM.”

“System Center Configuration Manager 2007 is the next version of Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003. Configuration Manager 2007 contributes to a more effective IT department by enabling secure and scalable operating system and application deployment and desired configuration management, enhancing system security, and providing comprehensive asset management of servers, desktops, and mobile devices.”

Inside this product, is a feature called Desired Configuration Manager, aka “DCM.”

“Desired Configuration Management (DCM) is a feature in System Center Configuration Manager. With DCM, utilize Microsoft and third party best practice configuration knowledge to improve configuration definition and maintenance. Find the software you need to define configurations for your Microsoft and third party applications with Configuration Manager 2007.”

So my role in all this is to help create the DCM Packs. If you see any vendor link with Secure Vantage“…that’s us!

So now that I have explained what I work with, here is what I do.
1) Creating tools and solutions to help drive the business. (I can’t think of anything else to say…)
2) Setup internal environment and processes to control source code.
3) Learning Powershell. Yes, it is part of the job…learning.

Brasil: Day 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.

Day 3: Formula 1 – Free Practice and Qualifying.
We get up again at five to get to the race and actually get out the door on time. Good thing we sat under a tree or else we would have burned up.

Day 3: Foreshadowing Place. Day 3: Wait...It's Just Practice Day? Day 3: It's the City, Not The Race. Day 3: MMMmmm, Ice Cream.

Day 4: Formula 1 – Race Day!
I guess everyone found trees because we got there early as hell and still didn’t get a place under the tree. We got burned.

Day 4: What a Sweet Safety Car. Day 4: The Drivers. Day 4: Ouch. Day 4: Formula 1: OVER.

Day 5: Guraruja.
We made a drive to the beach through some crazy roads and tunnels. When we got there, it was a bit cool and cloudy, but still fun nevertheless.

Day 5: It's a Muggy Day. guaruja brasil beach Day 5: What a Feeling. Day 5: Mmm...Coconut Meat.

Day 6: Sorocotuba and two other beaches.
We found a small beach and relaxed there most of the day. It was so secluded, we were only accompanied by crabs and two dogs. After a while, we traveled to two other beaches nearby, but nothing compares to Sorocotuba!

Day 6: SOROCOTUBA!!! Day 6: CRAB! Day 6: Boats, Boats, and More Boats. Day 6: Ayyy!!!

Day 7: Just a trip to the airport.
Nothing fancy to show.

Where am I?
