    I wrote a small program to help our a few judges in my court, very customized to their needs. One of the judges apparently likes to blog about what he does and seems to have a pretty big following of other judges (There is a liveblog style thing for judges that only government employees can see). For the 1st time in years, i had my phone off over the weekend because of family events so i didn't want to check my phone every 5 seconds. I wake up this morning with over 100 e-mails from other courts, 23 Voicemails.... wanting my program.

    Last time i do this shit for a judge. Can't just have nice things, has to go tell the world about it....

    I get not wanting to support a bunch of randos but that sounds like to opposite of a fail.

    The fail is I wrote it for my court in mind. So the fact that I have this much demand means my clerk is going to want me to "Help the other courts out". This means i have to go back in and re-write half of it in a generic manner so other programmers won't hate me when they adopted it to their court.

    That, and as you said, randos will be calling me about XYZ.

    Also... I'm not a programmer.... I HATE CODE. I dream about that shit at night if i code too much and it drives me up the wall.

    Out of curiosity what does it do and what language?

    I can't go much into the details, but after reviewing certain documents there are a lot of steps the judges and his staff have to do after the review. I made so they could point to a certain doc, after reviewing, and hit a button. That would then perform all the tasks the staff normally would do. Because this system interacts with many different platforms it is a mix of C++ and PowerShell scripts.

    LOL I wish. This was simple enough that another programmer could do it as well. We have two programmers at my court, but they focus on the bigger stuff that i won't touch.

    I can't tell you how often I would hit a wall and think of the solution at 2am sleeping. I would then get up to try it because once this happens i will not be able to get back to sleep unless i know it works or not. That is why i don't like to program (And changed my focus in college because of this), because i enjoy sleeping dammit. I work enough when i'm awake, I want my dreams to myself.

    That behavior isn't exclusive to coding - I used to work 14-16 hour shifts in a bakery and then come home and dream that I was working in the bakery for 6-8 hours. It was awful. I would much rather actually be productive in my dreams instead of it being a second hell where nothing ever really get's accomplished.

    This so much. it's worst during the falling asleep phase, but the sheer amount of times I wake up in the middle of the night with the answer to some conundrum and need to get it implemented, or at least tested, before I can go back to sleep... xD
    (I don't code, I admin, but same shit, different wrapping! *hides*)

    Working with .NET Core for the first time. Feels like a complete 180 from .NET Framework in some areas. Especially with configuration.

    This seems like the best place to ask...

    Later this year I'm going to be tasked with bringing up a full suite of replacement servers (DHCP, fileshare, print server, etc) ... some dedicated, some virtual. I no dummy when it comes to computers but I've never been responsible for something like this before. I'll have some help from a project manager at corporate, but I'd like to spend some time now learning what I can, especially when it comes to best practices. Any suggestions on resources worth reading or checking out? I know that's a loaded question.

    Satellite sites are really easy, especially if you have everything put in place already.

    The main questions you need to ask yourself.

    What is my bandwidth going to be like?
    How many users will use this site?
    How big are the files will the workers use?
    Will i want this to be a good Failover (DR) site?
    Do you already have other Satellite sites?
    Do you already use DFS/Namespaces?
    Will this site grow in the next 5 years? 10 years?
    Will there be a tech on site? If not, how will non-remote support work?

    In many cases you want your satellite sites to be bare bones if it is small and not a DR. Less equipment means less support. The problem with random resources is everyone is different. You have to take all the above into account, then look at your budget and decide what you can and can't do. What you can do without and what you can't. There are so many variables, it's really hard to have a standard.
