re: IT Careers: 8 Steps Toward New Business Roles
I was reading about the so-called end for XP. Like many other people, I have a 2003 desktop XP that works fine. And, it drives a LaserJet 4+ printer. This is going to sound really odd, but here goes: "Arc welding is a direct short that is controlled." Years ago I had problems with PLCs and computers crashing. We were located in an industrial park where a lot of businesses did fabrication with spot welding - the same as arc welding. That process dumps a whole lot of garbage onto the neutral leg of your electrical system. I bought high-end surge suppressors, like the ones used in radio stations, to filter out all that noise. End of problems. Also, don't plug your printer into the same circuit as your computer. Many printers have capacitors that dump to neutral for the fast start. If you are located in a high-rise office building many of the elevators use capacitive-start motors which dump to the neutral leg.

re: IT Careers: 8 Steps Toward New Business Roles
I've heard from lots of IT execs about how difficult it is to make the move into a different business role once you have reached the top of the IT ladder. Have you found that to be the case? Is it easier if you have *less* experience/time in IT?
