    Hi guys and girls. I've been lurking around here for a while, but I decided to register today, so I thought I'd better introduce myself in here. Until last year, I was working in technical support (not IT related, it was printing inks!) until the company closed our branch :(

    I'm studying part time, with the eventual aim of getting a job in IT. I already have a Diploma in Computing from Open University, and I'm still working towards my BSc (gaining CCNA by the end of the year on the way).

    I have lots of 'non professional' IT experience. I play online games quite a lot, and as a result ended up creating a forum for the clan I'm a member of. We rent a Windows 2003 server, and I have installed mySQL, PHP, and phpNuke to run the forums and website, as well as creating the content for the site. It's been running for 2 years now, with an average of 1000 hits a day and nearly 300 registered users. I also have a little Java knowledge, although nothing too heavy, only stuff for my OU courses. I have built dozens of PC's for friends, family and friends of friends, and set up quite a few wireless networks. I get e-mails and phonecalls on an almost daily basis asking about PC problems!

    Anyway, I'm rambling. I'm looking forward to being a member of this community, and hope that the support and advice that I receive will help me to find my first job in IT :D

    Sounds like you keep busy mate, cant beat a bit of gaming.

    I see that you're based in Telford, not too far away from myself (Walsall).

    I came accross a site which you might find useful to keep as a favourite...

    You may already know of this but its a large internet based company in Telford which posts up vacancies when they crop up.

    Yeah.....I've seen that, it's the Japanese looking building on Stafford Park. I believe they run most of the backbone in this area? If all goes to plan, I will have my CCNA by the end of the year, and they are one of the many local firms that I could hopefully get my first IT job with!

    Thats the good thing about Telford, there are a lot of large firms, and obviously they all have networks! :wink:
