@Polygeekery I'll have to look into that, thanks for the suggestion.

RE: Dumb things being crowdfunded.
Like what jobs?
Not quite the same, but I personally would like to be able to get a key for my wife's car for less than the $400 we were quoted to get hers copied. Especially since when we bought it (second hand) the salesman acknowledged that there should have been two keys.
If we'd realised at the time of sale that getting a copy would be so expensive we probably would have made more of a fuss about it then and insisted that one be included.
RE: Securing a SECURE system with antivirus
If the USB transfer device is not reused on the unclassified network, then the airgap is working as intended.
As long as the device itself wasn't malicious, yes. You don't want it depositing malware on the secure machine even if you never use the USB stick again.
If the USB device is reused on the unclassified network, then I don't see why this facility passed its security audits.
Yeah, this. When I worked at a facility that handled classified information, it was more floppies than USB drives that were in question, but the rule was that any disk which had been used on the secure network had to permanently be treated as the highest level of classification available on the secure network, and could never ever be used on the unsecured network again.
I don't know what they did about AV though.
RE: Is it possible to get a job interview without going through a recruiter?
@blakeyrat mobile broadband ftw?
Seriously though... good luck with the job search. I have no useful advice to offer, having been at this company since approximately the stone age (or at any rate 2003).
RE: The Ten-Year-Old Tech Support/Developer/Project Manager
It occurs to me that I have a ten year old daughter (here's one I prepared earlier!). And yes, it's true that she would use "nobody told me that" as an excuse for not knowing something that she hadn't been told. Of course, so would I. I guess that means I too am no better at my job than a 10-year-old.
Or is there perhaps more to my job than merely being able to divine the unknown through some flash of mystical inspiration? Huh, turns out there is. So I guess I'd better stop wasting time here and get back to it
