You Dont Know Everything
I know its hard to believe. As you read this
you most likely are saying that I know this. This guy isnt telling me anything that
I dont know. But here is the secret. You dont have to know everything. Just
know where to find it. Dont forget all the resources that you have at your
fingertips. BOL, Tech Net, books, www.Swynk.com are
the most important after you looked at the others. Ask people that you know. The list
servers are a great tool. Join in. Ask and answer.
Dont sit on the List servers and just ask questions. Answer the
questions that you can. I remember one day I was sitting at work and had a problem that I
couldnt fix. For some reason my users were getting overlapped results on an ASP
page. I was looking all over and I couldnt seem to find the answer to this anywhere.
I was entering the destructive mode, just before I was going to go nuts and attack my
Servers with the ever-famous rubber mallet. I posted this question and in an hour I had
the problem solved. I could have sat there for many more hours searching and getting more
and more frustrated as I went along. I got my help because some kind soul decided to help
me. The end result is that if I can help someone from reaching that point I will do so.
