    G'day everyone not really sure what im meant to say in an "intro post" but here goes :biggrin

    Well im 23 from Perth, Western Australia and have been in the I.T industry for four years. I currently work at a private school doing a bit of everything! My main purpose is to make sure the staff and kiddlie winks are up and running day to day but i have the benefit of doing everything.

    We're a novell network running netware 6.5, zenworks 7.0.1 we also have SLES servers and winblows boxes:wink: . My current project is creating our SOE using the ENGL software which is quite enjoyable. I also create and distribute the various applications required throughout the campus, i configure our nortel switches, support the wireless system, do daily server checks as well as patching etc

    Im planning on heading over the the U.K next year ! :clap so im now in the process of actually getting some industry certs to back up my hands on knowledge! Im currently enrolled in a CCNA course which is on once a week. Im also studying towards my MCP in the 270 and 290 exams + my CNA.

    Rightio work stuff aside i love my sports and music. I follow the West Coast Eagles (local aussie rules team) and im also a massive Newcastle United fan (fat freddy out!). Im into all music but my preferred genre is heavy metal i love bands such as Metallica, Pantera, In Flames and Children of Bodom.

    Anyhow i hope you can put up with my questions regarding study etc and i hope to have a beer with you next year ! :alc

    I have a couple if mates in london so hopefully i'll manage to tee some work up over there. Would like to get more involved in the server side of things before one day heading down the managerial track.

    On that note how do people become IT managers? I have no idea :biggrin
