I have spent the past 8 years working at a small ISP, where I manage E-mail, DNS, Web, and Voip servers for a couple thousand clients.

comment Is there an English idiom for trying to do two things at the same time and failing at both of them due to splitting your effort?
I like Multi-failing. My first reaction was something along the lines of "Dilbert", but I wasn't sure if there was a strip that had defined an idiom. The best I could find was this: dilbert.com/strip/1998-08-10

comment Is there any “swearword” in English not associated with excrements, the genitals, sexual activity or religion?
"Poxy" would be the term you're looking for, but it's not much in use anymore.

comment What's a word for an instance in which one has an opinion about something without having tried it?
Blowhard doesn't really fit the bill, since it's more about arrogance and bragging than anything. This term is better defined as "all talk and no action".

+1 for poseur. Although "reporter" might also be an excellent substitute as well. ;)

comment What's the meaning of the phrase “take cares of”?
In addition, this would have passed a spell-checker, since both words are spelled correctly. Which is probably why no one ever noticed this error.
