    Hi
    Im new round here and thought i would drop in and introduce myself a little.
    Im uk based, 23 year old male. Currently a BMW Technician but not fully finding the job to suit me.
    I have a stronger interest in computers than cars (no modern cars arent all computers despite popular myth :p ) and tend to lean more towards computers even at work.
    I did a GCSE in IT at school and started an A level course in it, maths and science being my other stronger subjects.
    I have no proper background in computers aside from repairing and tinkering with my home pc's, setting up my home network and helping mates with their computer issues.
    I started to look into computeach and similar companies and researched them on the internet to find a lot of people less than happy with the service provided be it for whatever reason.
    So i have opted to first buy a Mike Meyers book on A+ and take things my own direction and am sure this forum will be of much help with this.
