So What is Narcissism

It’s been 358 days since our government declared Covid-19 a national pandemic. Most of the world has been cooped up inside and ordered to self-isolate from others. This seems like a good time to define the term narcissism. I’ve heard the term “narcissist” many times in recent years.

I was working at a company where I was given the task of maintaining over 3000 computers. Most of the time my job entailed troubleshooting and repairing problems encountered by employees, however I also maintained the software on all of those systems. I was able to begin my troubleshooting process by accessing their computer remotely using a custom built application someone in my office created with Visual Studio.

A custom built application, by one person, with zero documentation, and no source code…so I began exploring alternatives.

That’s when I discovered the efficiency of Microsoft PowerShell. I was fortunate, because the larger organization had recently begun adopting PowerShell and highly encouraging techs to use it. The biggest hurdle is the learning curve. I’ve always had a passion to learn programming, so I decided to dive right in to the docs and explore PowerShell’s features. I was gladly surprised how much Microsoft has done with the language. It’s really incredible.
