    I'm still finding and cleaning up Access databases driving critical CRM platforms

    I swear it's just this one guy leaving a trail of crazy access files with super dodgy VBA that scare the bejesus out of me. Oh and last week I found a txt file on a remote desktop he owned called "passwords" which contained... well, you probably don't have to guess. Let's just say there was a look of users named "admin"

    I got sent some files recently for a client to help them migrate from chef to pure DSC. In the data files was a few domain admin accounts and keys for their azure storage accounts with more passwords and usernames. I had to carefully point out that this was there and that it was for their live environment, a pretty big product in the industry they work in (80% or so of the market)

    People are terrible at password management.

    I'd say this about windows xp but that would implode our economy and possibly kill hundreds in hospitals.

    You'll be surprised how many ATMs still use XPas well.

    Learning how to get the results of SQL queries into an excel document (live, google sheets to big query is pretty boss) is a really, really usable skill as an analyst. You will be loved.

    Yes. People are clueless and they don't know it. Dunning–Kruger effect is real.
