    well lets just I am surprised how much the place has changed.

    I thought I would create this thread to answer some the questions asked on another thread, rather than steal that members thread.8)

    Anyway here goes:-

    Why have not been around......

    had a little accident on a motor bike, fell off hurt my arm, leg and head and well things are a bit hazy at the moment can't remember much!

    Also been busy preparing to move into a new house, everything was set then it all fell through right at the last minute leaving me homeless.

    I've been communting a lot as well going up to Reading to help out with some family problems after my Uncle died. Working long hours at work and weekends to get money for the deposit on a house and trying to catch up with life.

    How about you GBL and Trip and BM and Cheeks and Wizard and Si what's been going on in your life and what have i missed on CF??


    Also just wondering what everyones view is on Comptia N+ books is David Groth better than the MM books?

    I have applied for a few jobs but havent heard anything back yet.

    re-reading books I have for the A+ aswell as trying to get the money together for the exams.

    Had to get the head gasket fixed on my car which wasnt cheap and I am still working for a company where the management don't have a clue in what they are doing and won't listen to anyone but themselves.

    I am sorry to hear that mate, sounds like the management (at the place you work) have their heads so far shoved up their backsides they wouldn't see a good idea if they trip over it!

    What car have you got GBL?

    I have a Vauxhall astra 02 plate. I just parked up and was getting out to go to work when I decided to eject the cd. It kept on jumping on one of the tracks and it was the solarize album by Ian brown. Well it's a good job I didn't open the door as intended because at that exact moment a car cliped my wing mirror smashing the glass i was very lucky...god knows what would of happen if I had opened the door. Anyway the glass cost me £34 from the main dealer. :(8)

    I fitted myself this weekend

    Lucky there Monkey with the card door incedent. Hope you are feeling better after the bike accident. I don't think I have heard that Ian Brown album yet, must get hold of that one, I really like his stuff.

    As for the N+ from Groth. I didn't try that one as I borrowed the MS press book from WagnerK (Ken) which I found very good as a reference book when looking up topics or areas I felt I was weak on. I didn't try to read it from start to finish, but I have heard the Groth one is quite readable.

    Thanks Tinus - things are getting better, the bruises are still there and seem to suffer from a nausea but I'm not sure if that's staying at a computer screen or from the accident?

    How are you?

    Cheers sparky! I guess that one covers the 2005 objectives.

    I was reading a thread on the Comptia N+ section that some members who recently took the N+ found the exam to state 2007.

    I've had a good look in that section but can't find any updates for 2007 N+

    I dont think the Network+ has been updated, just the A+.

    Probably best to check on the compTIA website just to be sure though. 8)

    Well, if you had a concussion working on the screen might cause nausea.
    Very well, thank you. Working now on server 2008. Microsoft has a free download on a MS-press ebook on server 2008 and one on power shell.
    There should be a link on microsoft learning.

    What's happened to me in the past month? Well, as you've already noticed, they made me an admin around this place (AJ lured me in with the promise of milk and cookies). :wink:

    I guess the big news is that for the past couple of weeks, I've been working as a "contract-to-hire" Technical Writer for this writing documentation for the next version of this product. The details are super-duper secret, of course but I can tell you that it's *really* cool. :biggrin

    This book has finally hit the stores and I'm trying to finish up writing this book.

    All that and the Missus *still* has her "honey do" list waving in front of my face. :wink:

    Glad to hear you're on the mend and I hope you feel better soon.
