    I am planning on getting a tech related job after college once i finish my CS degree. However, I don't want to be sitting 9-5 Mon-Fri coding, sitting at a desk. I like coding and all, its just I couldn't be a programmer or developer as a job. I was thinking about something like a Database Admin, Network Admin, IT manager, pentester, etc. I like the business side of IT as well, using cool technologies in the workplace. I was also thinking about getting a minor in business or even a MBA after my bachelors. I would think that a degree like Information Technology or MIS or CIS would be better suited for the work I want to do, however the salary potential is MUCH higher with a CS degree and more options will be available for me. Also, I've read that most IT Managers hold a more advanced degree like CS compared to IT, CIS, or MIS. Just to clarify, I am a Senior in High school and wondering what path I should take. Which degree should I go for? I am worried that once I get into Jr/Sr years of college (at Ohio State) that all recruiters and internships will be just for programming and coding jobs. I hope this is not the case. Any tips from people in the industry? Thanks!

  • Computer Science or Information Technology?

    Hey all, I'm currently in high school and like many are trying to find out what I want to do with my life... So, I'm caught between an Information Tech major or a Computer Science major.

    Hey all, I'm currently in high school and like many are trying to find out what I want to do with my life... So, I'm caught between an Information Tech major or a Computer Science major. I realize the difference between the two, CS is more math based and coding, etc, IT is more practical application and working with devices hands on. I really do not enjoy coding that much, and I am not the best at math, Calc was my lowest grade this past year. So I figured that IT would be right for me, I want to be a network admin, security specialist/pentester, IT manager, systems analyst, something related to that. However when I looked at the requirements for these jobs, most asked for a CS degree, not an IT degree. I don't understand this, the IT curriculum seems more related to most of these jobs, whereas CS seems more fit for programming/development jobs. While reading online I read this: "CS majors can do IT and CS jobs, whereas IT majors can do IT jobs BUT not CS jobs"...would you agree? Is the CS degree really worth it when considering my aversion to math? I will take the CS route if it makes a huge salary difference but I'd prefer not to. Maybe a major in IT and minor in CS? I have an A+ and Net+ cert already so I just need a degree to supplement...I just want to make the right choice. Thank you so much for taking your time to read this and any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I am thinking maybe raspberry pi? or an ODROID? Im looking to set up my TV with a set top box. I have a media server and am going to stream movies and TV to this box. I was thinking of using raspBMC to do this which seems absolutely perfect! However my problem arrives when it comes to music. RaspBMC can play music, however with my collection it is not very user friendly (40000+). So for music i was going to use Volumio (formerly raspyfi). But i cannot use both Volumio and RaspBMC at the same time, and dual booting i do not want to do. Soooo, essentially what I am looking for is a box/OS that can show my movies and TV metadata and information (like XBMC) BUT also display my music in a user friendly way, such as Volumio's UI or something like simple iTunes interface. Also, when playing music I want to be able to turn off my TV and play music from my stereo (headless) and control the playback from my iphone or a computer. There are just so many options and I want to know what OS/box to use. OH and also, the box i want to be able to control via a keyboard or mouse and not a remote. If Volumio and RaspBMC could be combined that would be excellent. But if my needs can be satisfied via raspbian or some other box/OS just let me know. Ideas? Thanks!

    I am downloading files using uTorrent and right after they finish, they instantly delete or move to a different location. The problem is is that i have no clue where these certain files move. Is there a program that I can use to track the location of these files/folders? Or possibly some logging software? Thanks!

    Currently I am a 16 year old sophomore, and like many, are wondering about their futures regarding college and such. I am interested in Computers/Information Technology. My high school has a partnership with a trade school, Butler Tech (http://www.butlertech.org/programs/teen_... and I am wondering if it would be better to go to Butler Tech AND then college, as opposed to my high school now and then college. I would still be getting the same degree either way, however Butler Tech I would obviously have more prior knowledge for my associates/bachelors. Butler Tech has partnerships with many colleges in the area, some are just community colleges such as : Sinclair and Southern State Community. The "actual" colleges are:Cincinnati State, Miami University, University of Cincinnati, Wright State, University of Dayton, and Shawnee State. What I am concerned with is that future employers will not be likely to hire me because of community colleges or sub-par colleges... Now what I am asking is, is if I stayed at my original high school and applied at colleges for a Computer Science major, or I went to Butler Tech and applied for a Computer Science major, which school would colleges want to accept more? Logic tells me to believe that a student at Butler Tech would be more likely to be accepted (experience, etc), however many people I have talked to say that people that go to trade school "aren't the type of people that go to college". I must mention that through Butler Tech, the school will pay for certain computer certifications as well (CompTIA, Microsoft, Cisco, etc) I have pretty good grades, a 3.9 GPA. So, which path should I take? Thanks!

Connecting the printer straight to the modem is not an option, if that matters. All computers are running windows 7. If it matters the printer also has a parallel port.

    Hello all, lately i have been looking into servers and home automation and media servers and stuff like that, and ive been wanting to set up one of my own for my home personal use. However the computer i am thinking about setting up the server on is a little bit old, i don't have the specifics at the moment but i think a 1.6 ghz dual processor with 512 mb of ram (possibly 1 gb). So i was wondering if it is possible to do all of the following tasks on this computer, if not all of the tasks then maybe just a select few. Here is what i want to do: VPN/FTP/FTPS/SSH server Home file server Computer backup (not really important, i have 2 laptops on my network as well) Home Automation (not important, however if it can be done thats great) Media Server for streaming to my laptops and TVs...using Roku for my TVs (very important for me) Managing an Active Directory for my laptops for a learning experience DVR/PVR for TV Downloading Torrents to server from laptops I realize this is a large task load for such a mediocre computer, however these are just the ideas that i would like to try and if its possible for me to not go buy another fancy computer that would be great. I will be using a couple 2 TB harddrives for these tasks so space is not a problem. So, is this possible? Thank you in advance for all help! My main concern is the media server, as i believe this will most likely be the most intensive...but if i can do any of these please let me know which ones i can and cannot do based on the limits of my computer. Thanks!

Oh, and none of that wizard, dragon, hocus pocus type of stuff. (like Eragon) Harry Potter was great, but it's one of a kind.
