    Hello all,

    I used to post here back when craigie was starting his journey. It makes me wonder if I kept up with my IT career where I would of been.

    A little back story, I stopped working in IT at the end of 2009 and went to work in China. I had 3 years experience of 1st/2nd and little bit 3rd line support. Things took a different course and now I'm back in the UK. I want to try to get back into IT as I enjoyed the different daily challenges. I passed my 70-270, 70-290 and 70-291 before I went to China.

    Wow, I am the new generation of CF members, not sure you will find to many oldies on here, not sure if you know of @SimonD hes been here a few years. What are you looking for? I assume you want to at least get back into 2nd line support?

    Hey all,

    @Juelz I'm prepared to accept humble pie for which level I will get. I might also need to get a Windows 10 machine. I think simonD had the yellow puppet?

    @dales I remember you from back in the day! I think you came up in my LinkedIn?

    Hope all is well all.

    Ahh - the 70-291 - no wonder you chucked it after that. That brings back nightmares! :)
