    Hi all,

    just thought I'd share my good news with you all. I've spent the last year doing security work and this and that, a few tools etc. I found that its not for me and that I was constantly trying to get my hands dirty.

    I had my interview yesterday, felt I'd nailed it despite some curve ball q's about things like FSMO's and GPO's...... cut a long story short I am now a full time dedicated Wintel person :)

    I've done this kind of work before but always as a jack of all trades type guy. I'll keep up my security studies but as a career it just didn't float my boat

    Jim

    ** Edit: WIP probably now = MCITP:EA upgrade exams/CCA/VCP :)
