    I guess I should have started here but oh well.

    My name is Simon and I am.. oh, hang on wrong place.

    Anyway, I have been in IT for 13 years now after having spent 10 years as a soldier in the British Army, hard to believe I have been in IT for longer than I was in the Army (which in itself seemed like a lifetime).

    I love technology, have far too many pooters in the house, spend way too much time online (gaming\browsing and generally doing bugger all). I have a very forgiving wife and a fantastic (nearly) 3 year old son.

    I actually found this place because of a post on Tek-Tips, liking it here because of the more English than American feel to it and because I like to think I can actually help out those that need it.

    Looking at doing a VCP course in the not too distant future to further expand on an already growing number of letters after my name but it's all good :)

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    As you were in the British Armed Forces, did you take advantage of the LCGI/GCGI/MCGI awards by C&G's?

    I didn't mate, infact this is the first I have heard about it. However after a quick look at the requirements I don't fall into any of the required bands.

    Oi.

    He said he liked it here because it was 'less yank' (paraphrasing) than Tek-Tips. Stop putting him off before he's evensettled in! :twisted:
