Oct. 02 - pres. Computer Technician
Avoided loss of thousands of dollars by efficiently troubleshooting and
solving problem with server.
Challenge: server was crashing frequently.
Action: determined that the best way to solve the problem was to migrate
data to new server.
Accomplished in half hour during lunch, zero downtime. (Typically takes
4 hours. Was able to do it much faster because of my extensive background
in DOS. Transferred only small portion of data normally transferred in
this situation, knowing it was sufficient to achieve seamless transition.)
Solving problem was critical in that the server was required to ensure
orders were shipped on time.
Saved about $5,000 in salaried time by avoiding hundreds of hours of manual
data entry, in setting up new accounting system. Accomplished by scripting
programs to extract and transfer data automatically.
Solely responsible for all technical operations. Used Win 98 network, VBA
in MS Excel, C, Perl, Simply Accounting Pro, Photoshop and several in-house
