This is a welcome surprise. Good to see you.
People who confuse etymology and entomology bug me in ways I canít put into words.

Sorry about that. The spammers force me to make it harder and harder to keep them out.

Understood. It has to be an uphill fight. I had to enlist some help from another source to contact anyone.

Maybe an admin contact email listed on the site would help. That would probably get spammed, too. :(

At any rate, I'm happy to be back. Lots of stuff the past several years. And now I'm old LOL.

It's enough to make you feel like King Sisyphus. Always an uphill battle that you can't win. You can only hope the boulder don't roll back too far.

I retired from my 17+ year IT job at a local school district about 18 months ago due to that boulder.

New district admins were refusing to follow established policies related to technology purchases, and as such, were preventing me from doing my job. When things went awry, that boulder dropped right on me. Even though it was the admins who had farked up.

I was stressed out every day and angry all the time. That's no way to live.

That's the reason most Admins quit. Bean counters and boards finally drive them over the edge.
