This is a question Winging It

Don Spang says: I once found myself winging it in a job interview and somewhat exaggerated my technical experience in the field of mainframe computer operations. 24 years later, I'm still there. Ever had to improvise to get by? Tell us you tales of MacGyver-type genius.

I thought it was a good way of expanding my skill set
Previously all my IT experience was on PC networks and within my first month I'd installed an edit suite, a new server, a fibre network and a tape archive for backing up the footage, I'd replaced the ISP, recabled the office and restored a couple of the sales laptops. So while I was winging it at first, pretty much everything is new anyway and since I put it together, I know how it all works and nothing hardly ever goes wrong. In addition, I now run a mixed network of real computers and glorified Fisher Price activity centres at home and every day is an education in getting them to interact with each other.

All that and I get to write, produce, edit and direct videos professionally. Win-win, I think they call it.
