    Hi Guys just a quick Hello, found your little soiree whilst looking for information on a TP who was pestering for money, seems like you have a cosy little Forum here.

    Looking to get myself more PC orientated work, the hardware side- networks etc, I have done a shed load of PC work for my previous employer as part of the job, (many Security systems these days are PC based and or monitored/administered remotely over dial up or network) but I have no quals as such to show for it, now they've chucked me on the scrap heap, I'm buggered if I'll just waste away.

    I got my first computer in 79, yeah I know... it had 2k of memory, chunky B/W graphics and no sound. Programmed in Basic or M/C... I tinkered and added extra ram, converted the graphics and rewrote the OS (BIOS) to you kids, in machine code by hand in hex.... :eek:! the old dinosaur still lives in my loft.

    So it looks like I'm down the shops tomorrow for an A+ and Networks + book then.. or I'll trade them for my machine code books.. anyone??

    chow for now.
    :biggrin

    Pretty sure you'll pass the A+ and N+ with flying colors. Good luck with the studying, take it easy and feel free to ask advice from those who know the tests well (i.e. not me :D ).

    Thanks for the Welcome guys.

    I expect that to start, I will probably have loads of questions.. but hopefully later on I'll be able to put something back into the board when newer members have questions.


    ....Couldn't wait 'til tomorrow, ordered Mike Meyers from Amazon.

    P.S. I like blue.
