Letter to the editor
I wish the government would provide information technology training for people working in small facilities out in the field. Those of us in the field have IT as additional duties and rarely get any training, just equipment to hook up and maintain.
I have learned much by trial and error and by asking others. How many hours have I spent trying to connect using old network cards in 486 computers and Windows 95?
The cost of my time would buy many new computers with Windows 2000 or XP. IT for the government is not important.
