I have a lot of respect for folks who can do "hell desk" well. There are
far too few of 'em. It's the toughest job in the house, too.
I assume you've read the BOFH chronicles.
> How did you get your telecommuting job,
I didn't start off telecommuting, and, in all honestly, probably couldn't
have. The company's products are sufficiently proprietary that total
cultural immersion is the best way to get up to speed.
I worked at company HQ for a couple of years before I came back to the west
coast and started telecommuting.

I dunno. Hit http://www.cmhcsys.com and have a look. If you see something
interesting, contact me off-list.

Our VP of Ops is some sort of ex-spook. He says "Armed Forces Data
Security" but I think you spell that "CIA." It sounds like you two would
have a few things to talk about. Read up on HIPAA before you talk to him,
though. If you're a super-expert SQL weenie with heavy Java and a
networking clue or two, I expect you might find the VP of ProdDev
interested, no matter what's on the website.
