    Howdy howdy.

    If you hung around Cramsession.com circa 2000-2003, we've most likely met. If not, well, pleased to meet ya. I'm a middle-aged Canuck who keeps trying to retire from computers in favour of a career in photography and who keeps getting pulled back into the tech world. I currently run a computer repair business in Oyen, AB, Canada. The locals strong-armed me into it.

    Anyone who can guess my old username from CS gets a Scooby Snack. ;-)

    Pretty good, man! Very glad to see you here! :)

    I don't know many people from Alberta... but the photog factoid pretty much narrowed it down for me. :)

    Thanks for the welcome folks. I'll probably be wagging chins with a few of you over upcoming exams I'm prepping for. Um, background...

    I used to be a technical trainer and writer, then worked as a sysadmin for a large staffing company. I've always been a small-town guy so when the staffing firm laid me off I figured I'd change gears and open a photo studio out in a rural area of Alberta, Canada. Unfortunately, word got around about my dirty computer past and dead computers started showing up at my door.

    Three years later I'm running my own computer repair business in the small town of Oyen. That and doing some classroom training. Having a pile of certs (and being fairly good at what I do) allows me to get away with charging more than my competition. Sadly, a few of my certs are a bit outdated and it's time to upgrade. So here I am. Whee.

    I'm fairly accomplished as a fine-art and landscape photographer, but the computer biz has gotten to the point where I don't have time for my cameras. That and I'm studying for the Vista exam to start with.

    Good to see some old faces again. :biggrin
