The only problem is that I am the only person in the agency that can provide the appropriate support. So I would essentially be on call at all times.
How do folks here handle that sort of thing? Is this even legal?
It's exactly whats he wants. In a shared Windows environment, it beats the native Outlook search speed handily and covers my organization's shared drive.
Actually, the search speed has saved my a few times in being able to reconstruct a problem and react accordingly.
Installed Debian testing on an old Dell and only had dial up at the time. Of course the Winmodem didn't work, so that meant a custom compile and fighting with getting a driver installed from Linuxant. AA lot of struggle and learning involved, but how do I keep the damn thing updated without tying up my phone line every evening? Through the magic of cron, pon, poff, I automagically had the it updating itself at 3 AM every day.
