  • There are no dumb questions!

    One of the many wonderful people I work with at Rackspace recently asked if they could as a dumb question. I taught technical classes for over 12 years before launching my career into “regular” IT work and in that time I learned that there truly are no dumb questions. If you are comfortable enough to talk to me and ask, then I will do my best to help you grasp whatever it is you want to know. That’s really just a function of who I am.
