    Most of you around here have got to know me but this story isnt for you its for you guys joining the forum and trying to get into IT and im hoping you around my age (18-21). I joined this forum just over a year ago with just an ICDL and an in house A+cert... i landed my 2nd job in IT in Cyprus where I live and the world landed at my feet. I cant remember how i came across this forum but im glad and I did because you see all those MCPs in my name this place helped... from simongrahamuk getting me to choose MCDST as an elective to freeloader aka freddy to putting debian linux in my hands (i built a linux file server!) to guys and girls!! who got me thorugh my other 2 exams. If you wanting to get into IT and starting out... think of self study if you not sure what im talking about click on this link http://www.certforums.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=11894 - i wrote that too not to say dont use companies but to show you it wont cost you money to learn, it cost me nothing! I want to say thanks to the lot of you who have helped me during my cert studies - thanks! Right now im not studying for my certs even though i got one exam to become an MCSA - im in london studying for a degree in Computer Networks - useless some say but one year ago i was a nothing now i got 1 1/2 years experience nearly 2 microsoft certs.. linux exposure and i got plenty of things i want to learn... i remember when i first joined people kept saying IT isnt money and I now know what it feels like... to suceed in IT today you got to WANT TO do it and not make money out of it (even though a rise every now and then would be good)....

    So here is to CF and all you lot... :clap :slidedrin :alc :thumbleft
