    its a temporary contract for the summer at 500 quid a week and hopefully *fingers crossed* they'll renew it (if they don't the domain backdoors may stay open :twisted: ), but it's the first technical support only job I've had, so quite pleased with myself right now.

    I have been a teacher (tefl and primary) for a number of years always giving support to those who needed it, but this time ... no teaching, just IT. :biggrin
    My first assignment , design, install and maintain a 25 computer (up to 500 users ) network from scratch, including ordering the BT line, getting an ISP, procuring a server, new workstations, etc ... and then maintaining AD on w2k3. I did post about creating a internet cafe but this is different as they already have an existing network which I am upgrading

    Then I have to go about renewing all the old audio visual equipment and salvaging what can be saved.. looks like I'm gonna have a busy summer as the new Academic I.T. co-ordinator
    :biggrin

    .... time for a Boddies me thinks

    cheers everyone

    thanks everyone

    I'm looking forward to it , as I have always had a somewhat undefined IT role it is great to be actually recognised in my new career...I actually got them to write technical support in to the job description so that will be going on my cv for sure

    and for good measure I'm sitting my 70-270 on Monday morning so that'll be another string to be added to the bow (i hope)

    :)
