This is entirely work related, so if you don't want to read about it... just skip on.
HP rocks my world. They have forums available via the web that contain access to others who use their products, as well as to HP's knowledge bases. I have been hitting these forums and tech articles over and over as I fought to square out some misbehavior on my network management system.
I am the king of OpenView Network Node Manager as well as OpenView Operations! I have bent these two software packages to my will time and time again today. I've defeated every quirk it's thrown at me, and I admit I owe a large part of that victory to the forums, but that doesn't make me feel any less smug.
I love it when something goes right at the office.
