I am a systems administrator in Albany, NY. I have been around computers for the last 20 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in computer network administration.

I have a very broad skill set in computer administration. I have supported networks of 50 - 200 users. I have many hobbies in the computer arena, which includes the following:

Debian Linux Package Server mirroring and caching. This is used for installing new Debian systems, and providing local system updates to existing Debian Linux systems.

Basic LaTeX typesetting of documents. Recently I have started to learn desktop typesetting using the TeX (LaTex) programming architecture.

I have built 3 Workflow programs. For managing and maintaining users information for the data systems that I have to support.

comment Why can't I associate files with Excel after upgrading to 2010?
This worked for one of my users that was upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2010. This was apparently only a problem for MS Publisher.

comment No GUI in server 2012 - Is it possible to run Windows update without GUI?
I am downloading the 180 Eval right now. But from what I remember, there are some GUI apps that do run like notepad.exe. You can try running "control" from CMD prompt. Look for windows update.
