Last week I gave some insight as to why I am proud to be an IT professional. I got a pile of responses and wanted to share some of what others told me about why they are proud to be IT pros.

This is just short sampling of the responses I got. I was overwhelmed by what people wrote in their emails and I will be posting more of these comments over the next week.
Why am I proud to be an IT Professional?
Right off the bat, I get to play Jesus most days of the week doing the "Seemingly impossible" and making "Miracles" happen.
Yeah yeah, cool toys cool toys (as long as I can afford to buy them from time to time, all Praise eBay!)
Although I only get to deal with the smaller sites (under 50) since that is our target market; I do get to play with most of the newer technology as it appears. I am looking forward this week to migrating an SBS 2000 server to Exchange 2007 and SQL 2005.
Installing SQL 2005 at home (Eval of course) just to figure it out!
Wish I had a bigger budget to play with since there is SO much more to know and learn. But again. All praise eBay in that respect, and sometimes the odd Dual Pentium II Xeon server as a throwaway (That's a story for another day)
And from time to time, you get to see how you really do stack up against others. And it's a good feeling to know that you do make a difference in the world.
More so, it's funny to see the infamous "Mac vs PC vs Linux vs 'whatever'" fights.
Those days you just sit back and laugh. All Computers Break. All computers get viruses. All computers can be damanged in silly ways by users. (Note do NOT let dogs chew on Mice cables, VERY damaging to circuit boards!)

And still not giving up on my dream for Microsoft
