“Whoever said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results has obviously never had to reboot a computer.”
William Patterson It may have been quoted as saying, but according to anyone who has ever worked in IT, it is true. Restarting the computer actually does this. Solve most problemsBut we are not always smart enough to come up with this solution on our own. Sometimes we need to reach out to the experts: people working in IT.
IT jobs can be incredibly stressful, so anyone working in the information technology field deserves a place where they can blow off some steam, laugh at some memes, and restart their computer. Can enjoy a few minutes before needing (or having to tell someone. And to start over Their). That’s where it is IT Comics and Memes Here comes the Facebook group.
Filled with hilarious posts (for anyone who can actually understand them) that all of you IT pandas might find painfully relatable, we’ve collected our favorite images from the group below, along with Also an interview with creator Trevor. Packet. Be sure to vote for all the posts that are most entertaining to you, and then if you work in IT, let us know in the comments: Are you doing well?

We caught up with IT humor and meme creator Trevor Pickett to find out a little more about how the group got started. “I created the group when I realized there was a lack of normal IT meme groups,” Trevor told BoardPanda. “The key word there is ‘general’. There were developer/programmer groups, the odd networking group, a few hacker groups, but nothing general IT I could find. Among the posts I submitted to the IT support group, There was a tendency to get lost. All the great support questions were being asked. So I thought, why not start a general IT comedy group?”
“In May 2019, it has been growing ever since it was created,” Trevor shared. “I never expected to hit 10,000 members, let alone the 1/2 million we’re about to hit. This group has become a place to share things that many people share a common experience with. (In Sybok’s words, ‘Share your pain and gain strength from sharing.’) The ‘ESC’ key that releases the keyboard is for group banner purpose. Many people have commented that It gives them a much-needed break, an escape from the constant stress and pressure they feel at work.”
We also asked Trevor if it was necessary to have some kind of IT background to understand the jokes. “For some positions, it definitely helps to have a background in some aspect of IT, whether it’s programming, networking, cybersecurity, administration, or tech support. Understand those,” he said. Explained. “That being said, the majority of posts are generic enough that anyone should be able to pick up on the humor. The posts I like to see are the ones where ‘It’s funny because it’s true’ might be a headline. . When humor is mirrored with real-life experiences. Readers have, it’s a connection and it makes it all the more delicious for them.”
We also wanted to know what the best parts of working in IT are for Trevor. “For me, the best part is that it’s always changing. There’s something else to learn or something new. As long as the underlying technologies are advancing and changing, there’s never a dull moment. There’s always a way to look at a problem from a different perspective, and most of the time, if you need help, someone else has usually had the same problem you’re having and they’re ready to help. may be able to.”
Trevor shared some words of wisdom, “4 words: Let people enjoy things. That’s the #1 reason posts get shut down. There are usually ‘two camps’ in tech; ‘us’ and ‘them.’ ‘,” he noted, for example, Android and iOS, Linux and Windows, Apple and Microsoft. Tech has their favorite OS, device, tool, app, or way of doing something; We all do. The Dunning-Kruger effect is alive and well within IT. Some technologies have a ‘my way or the highway’ mentality. This results in an ‘Us vs Them’ religious OS war between enemies with an ‘Us vs Them’ debate, which very quickly turns into ‘Me vs You’. The comments are insulting.”
“Both the ‘us’ camp and the ‘them’ camp may want to remember that they are both part of a larger ‘us’ camp; the ‘IT’ camp,” explained Trevor. “It’s just a means toward an end goal we’re all trying to achieve. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn how one can use a different tool to solve the same problem. Aka : Let people enjoy things.”
IT Humor and Meme’s ‘About’ page states that it is for, “Humor and memes related to IT, or related technology. Just a small corner in the big world of Facebook to let off some steam and To escape.

But it makes perfect sense for IT people to find a place of relaxation on Facebook after a hard day at the office. Working in IT can come with a lot of stress, which we all know can take a toll on the body. According to one Study published in National Library of Medicine, “IT and IT-related professionals are under constant pressure to deliver services efficiently and they have to be cost-effective.” Because of this, they are prone to developing various health problems due to constant physical and mental stress, including acid peptic disease, alcoholism, asthma, diabetes, fatigue, tension headaches, insomnia, Includes IBS, and more.
According to A survey, 78% of IT workers found their jobs stressful. This can be for a variety of reasons, but one that seems to be a common theme is having too much to do during the day. “Everybody gets work-life balance except the poor IT guy,” said Sergio Galindo, general manager of GFI Software. Computer World. And although IT workers are often overworked, they may not be adequately compensated. When more than 200 IT professionals were surveyed, nearly half of them admitted that they typically work eight unpaid hours a week.
Overwork permeates all aspects of these professionals’ lives. About half of the IT workers surveyed said they missed out on social work “because of too many problems and tight deadlines,” and about 40 percent said they were losing time with their children. And losing sleep. About a third also reported suffering from a stress-related illness.
Clearly, working in IT is not for the faint of heart. But why do so many people get into the field in the first place? Is it simply out of necessity? To find out more about what it’s really like to work in IT, we consulted. This pieceFeaturing insights from Austin Turesk, senior cybersecurity analyst at Flashpoint. Austin breaks down some of the misconceptions often associated with IT and explains what the job actually entails. First, he points out that you don’t have to be a computer genius to work in IT. “It helps if you have good computer skills and understand them,” says Austin. “But there’s such a wide and open door to IT.”
Austin points out that people working in IT also have to use Google to help them figure out what their prior knowledge doesn’t account for. No one can know everything, so being able to research and figure out what to do from there is a valuable skill. You can never be expected to know everything from the get-go. Critical thinking skills or being able to “think like a computer” can get you a long way. “One of the biggest things is the ability to focus on the process, problem solving, and identifying problems early enough that they don’t become major problems,” Austin says.
Another misconception about working in IT that Austin calls out is the idea that it’s primarily just about fixing broken hardware. While this may be part of your day or fall under your job description as an IT professional, Austin says every day is different. He works in deep and dark web intelligence and analysis, which apparently involves up to 10 hours of coding some days and hours of reading reports and documents on other days. He also notes that working in IT requires a lot of writing. “For example, you may need to summarize complex material for C-level or upper management people who can only skim a document; and then you need to go deeper for colleagues to follow. Technical specifications may also have to be provided.”
Because someone on the other side of the wall needed a network jack and couldn’t or wouldn’t install a new one, they just drilled a hole in the wall and fed the cable through.
A stereotype that IT professionals often get is that they are introverts, quiet and sit at their desks and avoid human interaction all day. However, like any field, there is a wide variety of people working in IT. Austin notes that soft skills and interpersonal skills can actually go a long way in IT, too. For example, people who interact with their customers and provide troubleshooting guidance are often very competent and friendly. Also, it helps to have a lot of patience and empathy for people who call to experience technical issues, as they are often extremely frustrated and upset. Coffee Fryersenior IT manager at Codecademy, even refers to IT as “tech therapy” because “you may find yourself comforting someone who can’t access a necessary file or Talking to someone who is upset that their child spilled a drink on their laptop”.
So if you’re considering a future in IT, but you’re still on the fence, let me point out some professions in the field. For one thing, jobs are definitely in demand. According to US Bureau of Labor StatisticsEmployment in computer and information technology occupations is expected to grow 11 percent from 2019 to 2029, meaning there should be approximately 531,200 new IT jobs. Nowadays, job security is becoming increasingly difficult to find, so if you want to know that you will always be in demand, information technology may be the way to go.
The IT sector also has very strong earning potential. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 2020 Average Annual Income All computer and information technology jobs were $91,250. That’s $20,000 more than the national median income in the U.S. for 2020, but depending on the specific job, IT professionals can earn much more. For example, software developers earned an average salary of over $110,000 in 2020, and computer network architects earned an average of over $116,000. Not too worn.
