    I'm new to this kind of thing so please be gentle with me...
    I had a go at the now defunct BBC get writing forum, but that wasn't very techy and a bit more forgiving (none of us knew what we were doing).
    I've spent most of my life in retail, which sucks.
    I got hooked with one of these 'make your life better with IT' ads and have been studying for about a year now. I just got my MCAD and am now working on a small team for an insurance company.
    Still get the headaches, but at least members of the public don't try and hit you.

    Thanks,
    Sometimes it makes me feel a bit like a geek.
    The Microsoft certification machine is a clever beast, it draws you in and leaves you wanting more. And paying for it...

    Man clearly you dont know of the modern geek
    we must not confuse the term geek with the oldage 'nerd'
    as they are seperate beasts my friend :)

    us Ubergeeks pride ourselves in our ability to enjoy the best of both worlds, we travel, party, drink, take part in rather extreme passtimes that our payscale affords us whilst maintaining our technical prowess through our close ties with electronics and powerful system requirements

    yeah were geeks, but were cool now :P
    its the 21st century remember :)
    *exemptions still apply to the backward US highschools that still think jocks who wont get further than the college football team are 'cool', but its ok, teenagers have to grow up and smell the roses at some point


    So anyway, welcome, congrats on your new certs, and get that snowboard out! your a modern geek now!
