    Heeeeeeeeellllllllllllllllooooooooooooo all!

    Long time no see, well virtually I suppose - hope everyone is tickety boo and all that festive cheeryness. After a substantially long break I have returned to darken your doors once more and hopefully this time to stay a bit longer!

    According to my profile my last visit was on 12th May - hmmmm, where did the last 6 months go to! I'm just popping in to say hi and to rejoin again.

    Well, I'm on post 999 - have to think of something inspirational for my 1000th I guess..... probably will waste it like what I remember of my 18th and 21st birthday! :D

    What have I been doing - well, since the start of the year I've been doing 2 Open Uni courses at the same time - one of which DMarsh I think was doing also - well, both are completed and I'm about 4 days away from finding out the result. My girlfriends dad was seriously ill at the start of the year which took plenty of time up but has recovered probably 90% which is the best we think we'll see. Both of us unfortunately lost a uni friend to cancer at the end of May - he had been battling it for about 3 1/2 years - he died just before his 25th birthday which always puts any difficulties we have the rest of the time in perspective.

    I've moved house, so from a one-bed first-floor flat to a two-bed ground floor maisonette with a garden - still renting as it would be a foolish move to anything but at the moment - but have been here since August. Spent 2 weeks chilling in the Dominican Republic - wow, what a great time, and for a pale-skinned white guy, I've still got the tan on my legs :D unless thats dirt :oops:

    Oh, and most importantly, in respect to this site - I passed my Network+ in May - some score like 830.

    So a busy old time, thought I'd do a general update - and now spend the next 30 hours reading through the forum and see whats going on!

    Hope the regulars are all good - and welcome all those newbies - lots of them!

    cheers 8)

    Edit: Oh I forgot - I'm now also MBCS :D

    Welcome back! I too am recently back after doing some courses at the OU - mine was a certificate, moving house (also renting)splitting with my gf and losing my father to cancer. I am getting back on the certification trail big time and look forward to the time I can say that I have written my 1000th post on here. Chat to you soon.
