As a retired software developer and now full-time rancher, it is left to me to provide IT support for the ranch, my wife and the ranch hands (aka, my children). My wife and children take a "toaster" approach to IT: it is just supposed to work when you press the button.

My wife, who before becoming a rancher, could code in FORTRAN. But that background does not leave her ready for today's IT challenges, even for the relatively small needs of the ranch.

It is left to me to keep everyone's personal computer, the business computer, assorted laptops and cell phones up-to-date, free of viruses and other malware, and otherwise working. As an IT professional, I would love to replace the aging equipment, but as rancher, I cannot justify the expense.
