    Hello my names Andrew, I'm 25 and am working as a sysadmin/3rd line support for a medium sized (800+ staff) outsourcing company in Glasgow.

    I started my career in IT by getting into the local computer shop at the weekend while at school and working for free.
    I went on to work for Dell for a year or so then moved to a large webhosting/co-location company that taught me about software and not just how parts fit together.

    I've been in my current new job for Six months and am enjoying it greatly, the experience is unrivalled. I've never been one for studying but I am going to start doing some certifications not because I currently need them for a job, but because I simply find them rather fun.

    Just because they are fun I don't expect them to be easy in anyway and I'm glad I have found a UK based site such as this for some support when I require it and also to talk shop in my spare time.

    :D




    I have experience working with but not confined to;
    Windows client/Server 2003, Novell GW/OES, Citrix PS 4.5, Apple and Linux (mainly centos).
