2023.02.02 23:18 One-Ups Almost 20 Years Experience Where to go from Here

I have spent nearly the last 20 years growing various skills as an IT ManageSystems AdministratoGeneralist. Although I did go to College, It was for an unrelated degree (Political Science/Public Administration major, Communications minor) and I stopped attending when I was ALMOST a Senior. Fortunately, while working for the VA I was offered a Helpdesk position in 2010 that quickly became a Systems Administrator position by 2012. I moved to the private sector in 2014 and have been an IT manager at an electrical contracting company since.
The VA and other previous experiences gave me experience in deploying and troubleshooting Teleconference devices and Telehealth devices as well as AD administration, CISCO switchport settings, SCCM and other configuration. In addition, I was able to administer other systems such as a police call security system and I dabbled in patient imaging. All the while keeping up with trends in PC hardware and other emerging "tech".
At the electrical contractor I have pretty much been the 1 man shop. All network lines in our newly purchased building were ran, terminated, toned, and tested by me. I manage 7 servers and over 35 users with operating systems ranging from server 2012R2 to Server 2019 as well as all office hardware (Printers, plotters, PC's, etc) Everything, even the paging system and PBX. I manage all of the backups, have overseen our multiple transitions from windows 7 to windows 10 and 11, administer Office 365, Dynamics CRM, Dynamics GP, data connectors between GP and CRM, etc. All of it, to include mobile devices.
Recently, as we are transitioning into an electronic ticketing system, I have added General SQL query and statement skills (enough to modify and use additional fields as identified on SSRS reports in Microsoft Report Builder). I've polished up my skills with Microsoft dataverse as well and know my way around creating and modifying entities, views, and workflows in Dynamics CRM.
All of this and more I have learned by my own desire to continually improve the level of service I can provide. More and more lately I have been evaluating what my value is and where I am at my current position and am looking to make a move to something a little more focused and fulfilling. The problem is that at 40 it feels like I don't know where to focus my efforts. I am confident in many of my abilities and my ability to pick up new and complex skills, yet know where I could get better in many others. I also know that I am capable of a better role elsewhere.
Should I get certs before searching? Should I contact an IT recruiter? In Houston, Tx do I have a legitimate chance at breaking well over the 80k I am paid now? Is remote work actually viable and stable? I know that I want to be a part of a more modern organization in many ways. For context, FAX is still big at my current organization despite my protest. I also want to narrow my overall responsibilities so that I can begin to specialize. I'd be interested to know your thoughts. What do I do from here?

2023.02.02 23:16 K-cat3120 Has anyone been talking about the Odd Taxi stage musical?

Here's the show's twitter: https://twitter.com/oddtaxithestage

Yeah, Odd Taxi has a stage musical! I know Anime musical adaptations are a big thing, but I guess I didn't expext a relatively unknown one to get the stage treatment.

From what I can tell it's a sort of prequel story about Mystery Kiss featuring their rise to stardom, along with other interactions with other characters (Imai, the Homosapians, this one guy who looks like he might be Tanaka but his name is exactly one character different so I can't tell??)

I feel like I've been following this for a little while now, but I really haven't seen much conversation around it? Very few articles, no entry on the wiki... Which is a little surprising to me, since Odd Taxi has such a detail oriented and dedicated fan base (idk if anyone has been talking about it in the discord or anything lol).

It just recently got back on its feet after some cancelations due to covid, so if anyone lives close enough to the show locations in Japan, you might be able to get tickets! Mostly I'm just hoping someone will write a summary or transcript of it on the wiki lol, because I don't know enough Japanese to really be able to watch it.

2023.02.02 23:16 asteddouglas What's the "Core Mechanic" of Outer Wilds?

I'm currently studying a GDC talk about prototyping games (because i'm terrible at it) (this talk if anyone is interested), I'm currently trying to put every game design knowledge I get in Outer Wilds "context", because i'm really interested in learning how designing a game as it works.
So in the middle of this talk, he gives an example of a technique called "Core's Diagram" where you would structure the game concept using an diagram with the core mechanic in its center (this diagram). I know this diagram doesn't work for every game, and I am almost certain that Outer Wilds is one of the games that doesn't fit (and it also doesn't help that there's only two mentions of the diagram that I found online), but it's still made me wonder, "What's the Core Mechanic of Outer Wilds?" I think the answer would need to be something more abstract like "getting knowledge", because I thought it could be something like the Nomai text translator, but there is an entire DLC that doesn't use it at all so I don't think it fits.
So my question is "What's the Core Mechanic of Outer Wilds?", but it's also if it doesn't have a Core Mechanic (or if the core mechanic is something like "movement") how would I go about designing a similar game? Would I just use an more abstract term like "gaining knowledge" and creating from it the "how" you adquire knowledge?


P.S: Sorry for any english mistakes, I think it should be all atleast understandable. I also put an link to an article in this post and I think it had an big enough summary for it, sorry if it was not and I'm accidentally breaking the fourth rule.

2023.02.02 23:14 miss_plum M/M plot (ISO loyal longterm partner for specific plot)

Just to disclose. I am a 30 year old female, but I want to rp M/M.
Please contact me on discord if you are interested in discussing plot.
I am willing to double up and play an aggressive character as long as you are willing to play the character I need for this plot.
About Me: Hello! My name is Yuki. (she/they)
Style: I write in third person past tense. My rps are expected to be literate/novella length. Which means that I would prefer 2-3 paragraphs for each response.
Availability: It is my goal to respond once a day. I will make it a priority to respond once a week. I expect the same from my rp partner. If I do not hear from you within a week, the rp will be dropped. Please, at least attempt to let me know if you need to step away. I am completely understanding of this. (With that said, if you do not intend to finish this rp with me, please don’t agree to start it. I consider it a huge waste of my time to invest in an rp that someone else decides they simply are no longer interested in. Please, be respectful enough to at least finish whatever project we start, or be honest with me upfront and inform me if you believe you won’t be able to do so.)
Preferences: I only roleplay mxm (bl) pairings. I do not mind doubling up on characters and having female characters within the plot but the only main pairings I will rp is m/m. The plots I like to play are dark themed. If you have several limits, then I am probably not the right fit for you. I will discuss these topics privately with you but please keep that in mind. Don't contact me expecting fluff. I want to rp hurt/comfort but remember we have to get past the hurt part in order to get to the comfort. FYI: Depending on the rp, I tend to prefer to play my character against an aggressive character. Meaning if the plot has a victim role, I would prefer to play the victim.
Plot: I have a few plots that I am interested in discussing further if you decide to contact me.
Rules: Please Do not ghost me. Please do not abandon the rp without reason. Ensure that you can provide lengthy responses. Communicate with me. If there is an issue with the rp or if you need time off, please let me know. If you are someone who doesn't like long-term plots, in-depth storytelling, character development, and dynamics, then we will not be a good match. It will not keep my attention and I will ultimately become bored. I do not like to rush a story. It’s okay to be excited about certain plot points, but good things come to those who wait. Time skips are perfectly okay, if discussed beforehand! (If you contact me, I have more rules that I wish for you to read if we are going to be a good match for one another. I will send them to you and would like for you to read them before we have any discussions regarding the plot.)
Contact: Discord: yukico#3875

2023.02.02 23:14 ConfusedTMGirl I want my dad to go to prison

This is going to sound harsh, and I get it. Maybe part because English is not my main language, but here we are. Main things to know.; This is a burned account because I have quite the things to share that are too personal to do it in my main and I am 30F.
This is a long Story that basically resumes my entire life, so, because I appreciatte everybodys time I will try to resume it. Please, have in mind that what I write here are just a very general view of the things that have happened and that many many things are left unspoken due to it being too much information to share.;
My father is not a good person. He was a terrible boss (one time endagering a worker life (illegall stuff)), a terrible narcisistic and manipulative father that used to insult me or emotionally manipulate me, He often would tell me things like no one would ever love me because I was a little fat because of anxiety eating because of being hard bullied at school since I was 5. And He cheated on my mom while living in my house pretending to be depress (I was 23) and using my place as he pleased. I felt into a big depression because of the demons I kept carrying since childhood into adulthood when I broke. After I was weak and depress and had to abandon my friends and my life to come back home by my mother insistance of wanting to take care of me because I was in a "ending myself" type of situation, my father kept being the worst while he moved with his new girlfriend, bought a new house, car, and a "new life" as he said, left the family work to my mom while kepping most of the revenue without being here or working a single day and comming back to the house unannounced whenever he pleased. He managed to convince me to try a therapist he knew about and managed to make the therapist tell him everything we talked during the private consultation. He tried to kick me of the house knowing my at the time fear of inadequity and being such horrible that I would end living under a bridge. And told me that He cheating on my mom was my fault because they had never argued until I came along. It got so bad with the time, months, that we got into a fisical fight and even if I have dealt with my anger issues that came towards him from all that I still resent him to this very day. Even If I can manage it and just ignore him.
Anyway, to the point;
When I started to got better my mom finally filed for a divorce. Thats stopped his sudden unannounced visits to the family home. By that time I have had started little by little to work on one of the family small company trying to regain my own self worth again. My mom had been waiting for me to be stronger for the divorce because She knew my father would try to manipulate me as He always tries with everyone. And She was right. He have been calling me, crying to me on the phone of who my mom wants to take everything he have worked for in his life. In reality my mom only wants whats hers, and a little bit of money of all the years He have not payed her share of the companys.
My mom was not a stay at home mom. My parents worked together in the family companys, most of the time being my mom who did the manual labor with a low % on the contracts.
Anyway, That was like a year and a half ago. Today my mom recieved an e-mail of a Lawyer that is trying to talk to both people and get to an agreement, that is what my mom have wanted since the begining. But my father have kept saying no to any agreement She sent to him. (While, on the sidelines, he tried to make me believe that my mom was trying to destroy me and leave me with nothing). He have tried to create new companys and accounts in his new girlfriend name to pass the money in case We wanted to take any. He have kept recieving all of the income of some of the work we have been doing and more.
Whatever, the thing is my Dad have not done legal stuff and we know it and our lawyer knows it. And my mom knows that if She try to make my Dad pay her what He is not paying her of her legal part of the company all of this illegal things he have done will put him in Jail. So, thats why She is trying to finish this quickly, because if this keeps getting bigger and bigger He is going to get in a big big trouble.
I have said to her that He have it comming, and that She needs to stop being such a pussover and stop letting him win, because in this e-mail I saw that She have severily lower the things She was previously asking just to try to get my Dad to accept the agreement and finish with all of this, because She is old and is tired of dealing with my Dad and She doesnt want to have to see him or fight with him anymore.
I have said to her that I have been watching how She have been letting him walk all over her for years, and that She is doing it again. That is my Dad ends up in Jail He deserves it, that He keeps trying to use all the money in travels and things, and that with this She is giving him exactly what He wants; total control of both companys that make money while leaving us in a future of uncertaintly and who knows what but She keep saying that She doesnt want my dad in prison in her concience.
I got furious. I am so tired of watching him win. Of watching him go around life like he owns it. Crushing everyone that He dont agree with while having the mentality that the world its there to get him and that He is just a poor vulnerable victim while destroying everyone around him.

I am so tired of letting him win, my mom says that sometimes you have to lose to really win. But I think that sometimes you have to say "this is enough". I am so tired of him. of all this. of watching him get what he wants... Maybe its my anger talking but I want him to pay, I want him to pay so bad I dont think She is right. I think he deserves prison for all the illegal stuff he have done and for the suffering he made on other people, my mom and me.

I need this off my chest I am so tired of watching people hurt by him, of being hurt by him. I want him to pay for everything I know he have done.

2023.02.02 23:14 Weird_Storyteller [NF] Almost 10 Years…

Even after all this time, she still finds herself thinking about him. No matter how many new people she gets involved with, it all comes back to him. He was the best thing that ever happened to her…and she messed up.
And all of the things she did! Lunch with his father, reaching out to him every few months over anything she could come up with, e-mails explaining her icky feelings, hacking into his social media, sending baby formula in her old married name to his house after learning of his new wife’s pregnancy…there was nothing she wouldn’t do in the hopes of regaining his attention. Even in some small way.
Heck, she was even still posting about her marriage and divorce. Even small details like his hand tattoo she found so sexy poured from her fingertips. She even kept his name, despite being able to simply check a box while filing the paperwork and moving on with her life. Then she made a huge deal about getting her maiden name back after she learned he was about to marry again. This woman was everything she could never be, and she absolutely hated her for it. They have a beautiful daughter too…didn’t he say he wasn’t interested in having kids? The reality was he didn’t want kids…with her.
She bought a cute little house close by, but couldn’t stand being on her own. She wanted him in that house with her. It was a decent small house, and her job at the food plant could support it. But it didn’t bring the freedom she expected. The hole inside of her was still there, aching for something to fill it.
The affair she was having had ended sourly, and left her with even more damage. Why had she cheated…why couldn’t she just be happy? She tried to pull herself up by her bootstraps and quickly sold that house. She had to get her ex’s signature on the quitclaim deed, because the divorce wasn’t final yet. There was still a chance.
She had put her head in the sand, praying that everything would just work itself out. But it didn’t. Her father had passed away in the midst of all this, and it utterly devastated her. She did the only thing she could do when she realized her ex wasn’t going to chase her down and try to get her back like they so often do in movies and books. She ran.
She has been in the next state for awhile now. The man she is with now has a very particular sexual appetite, along with kids of his own from previous relationships. She started posting porn and taking on other partners to keep him satisfied. It boosts her confidence to feel wanted and sexy. That validation from men feeds her never ending need to be desired. To be wanted. It also helps her to forget, even if it’s just a temporary fix.
The truth is she is still broken. She has no idea who she really is, or what she actually wants. She is going through the motions, cool to coast through her days with not much thought for her future. She doubted this not so new man would ever marry her. Did she even want that anymore? Who knows. All she can do now is keep wearing the masks of fake confidence and false happiness. Keep pretending hard enough until it becomes real.
Until then, she can continue to obsess over her ex and his new life. Losing herself to what could have been, living in those memories on repeat. Maybe in another 10 years, things will be different.

2023.02.02 23:13 DosesandMimosas721 Dog aggressively chews on his privates, any ideas?

My fiancé and I recently adopted a dog in October of 2022. After getting him treated for an ear infection (Twice), a dental cleaning, and other run of the mill items, we thought he was all fine. We initially scheduled the dental cleaning because his breath smelled absolutely horrendous. We also mentioned that he would mess with his privates and the vet basically waved us off. However after the cleaning, his breath still smelled.
I have noticed that he very aggressively chews on his privates, almost as if there is an itch he can’t scratch. We put him on Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Skin & Stomach in case it was food allergies and that has not improved it. We brought him back to the vet to check him again and we were told it wasn’t a UTI or anything like that (they didn’t run any tests) and gave us anti itch pills to give to him for a month. They said it wasn’t a UTI because he doesn’t strain while peeing and his urine isn’t twinged with red. We have noticed no improvement with the pills and he is biting more than ever. He almost seems to whimper in pain right before he starts chewing.
Does anyone have any idea what could be going on? It is not normal “cleaning up” as he is very aggressive to himself while doing it. Also he tends to do it at random times but usually does it a lot after going potty.

2023.02.02 23:12 13SapphireMoon Georgia Clinics?

I live in Alabama, close to the Georgia line. I'm looking at freezing embryos for fertility preservation. I just got a part time job with Progyny that begins in April. The closest clinic to me that accepts Progyny is in Columbus (Columbus Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility). I'm hesitant to choose them because of their FertilityIQ reviews, and I read that they do batches. I'm also looking at RBA or CNY, but they would be an extra 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive (for a total to 2 to 2 1/2 hours away). Does anyone have any experience with any of these three clinics? Does anyone know approximately how long of a wait it would be to get a consultation/when I could expect my first retrieval to be with RBA or CCREI? I already have a consultation scheduled with CNY for later this month (it was about a 3 month wait for a consultation with them). Does anyone know anything about when the Sarasota CNY office is supposed to open for IVF? With the CCREI, what is everyone's opinion on doing egg retrievals in batches? I worry about over suppression and not getting as many eggs, or my cycle getting canceled. Also, for anyone else who's read their reviews or had experience with them, do they seem concerning to you? With RBA, does anyone happen to know their storage fees per year and if they store embryos in house or use another storage option? I think I read that CCREI uses Fairfax Cryobank. Can anyone confirm that, and does anyone have experience with storing their embryos there? Also, I know CNY will transfer mosaics, what about the other two clinics? My BMI is 32. CNY will accept me regardless of BMI, but I've read that other clinics will reject people over a certain BMI. Does anyone know what the BMI limit for CCREI or RBA is? CNY also has an in house program for embryo donation/adoption as well as allowing/facilitating private donation, and with private donation you can also donate mosaics. How do the other clinics handle embryo donation? Has anyone had any problems using their Progyny benefits at these locations or anywhere else? Does anyone have any experience with/opinions on a 2+ hour drive for monitoring and/or flying for retrieval? Any other opinions in general?

2023.02.02 23:12 Chazzyphant Blurb for romantic suspense novella

This novella is a little hard to categorize. It's an intentionally vintage pulpy, noir vibe like Megan Abbot's The Song is You or the movie Don't Worry Darling...but with a happy ending.
I've worked and reworked this so many times and it's a bear. Help welcome. :)
BLURB:
A widow, a huge insurance payout, and a too-perfect new lover. Is her fairy-tale romance becoming film noir?
The only man in Britt Kirkwood’s too-quiet life is her parrot, Peg Leg Pete, aka Peggy. So, when charming stranger Roman Carter walks out of the shadows and into her life, it’s on.
Brain-melting chemistry and passionate kisses blaze into a whirlwind love affair. Love like theirs is so right it can’t be wrong. Or can it?
Between the late-night cuddles and breakfasts in bed, doubts start to creep in. She can’t shake the feeling that Roman’s hiding something.
As a web of connections between her late husband and her new lover slowly emerges, Britt finds herself having to choose between her newfound love and unraveling the dangerous truth.
Readers who like a side of suspense and pulp-novel atmosphere with their steamy romance will devour this quick-read novella set in the 1970s.

2023.02.02 23:11 thr0waway795 Finally feel like I’m done walking uphill

I have been divorced for 5 years now. While I was married I thought I was happy with where my life was. I had moved to another state which caused me to fall out of contact with most of my family and all of my friends but I thought it was worth it as long as I was with my wife and children. Besides small talk at work my wife was the only adult I talked to. Then one night she told me she realized she was lesbian. It didn’t take long for us to come to the conclusion that was divorce. The divorce itself wasn’t really that bad. I had heard of divorces being long and drawn out but that wasn’t really the case for us. The worst of it came the day we were officially divorced. I walked into my house and had my ex wife’s family jump out at me and scream congratulations. They thought I was my ex wife. They had thrown her a party to celebrate the divorce and for some reason thought I was moving out. I always knew they hated me but something about seeing them there I just couldn’t get past. Maybe it was because they didn’t have to pretend anymore.
After that day became a memory and I had time to think I realized I hated my ex wife. I don’t even know why. She definitely inherited some harsh feelings from her family after that party but it would have to be more than that. Maybe I finally realized just how much I had given up for a marriage that was doomed from the start. Whatever it was didn’t matter because we had kids. Can’t really avoid the mother of your children and nothing good would come from causing problems so those thoughts never left my head. She had no idea so she still wanted to be friends. I just ended up coming up with excuses all the time and playing dumb whenever she asked me about it. I was waiting for the kids to go to college so I could move back to my home state. That time came last year.
Moving back to my hometown was probably the best decision I’ve ever made. I got to reconnect with friends and family. It gave me things to look back on without contempt. It also gave me things to look forward to. I have been dating someone for 7 months now and things are going well. Before it always felt like I was constantly walking uphill. Things weren’t impossible but felt noticeably more difficult. Now I finally feel like I’m walking on even ground.
I made this post so it could work as a bookmark. I have been better for a while now but I don’t know the actual date it happened. So now the date is today. If I have a bad day from now on I can look at this post and remember how I felt and know it will be better. If it helps someone else then that’s great. I honestly just read on this subreddit because it satisfied my nosiness. So if that’s you then that also works.

2023.02.02 23:11 kimcob14 I just want some spoilers for The Eternal Flame

I'm 15 chapters in and I want to know what happens to Tamara before I continue. She was just kidnapped by her co and her dad. Does she get away? Does she die/fission?
To be honest, I wish I could read a plot summary for the rest of the book. Everything I found online is more about the physics than the plot. But I'm in a funk and I don't want to continue if it's going to be depressing. Gender politics get me down.
