... know everything there is to know about every electrical appliance there is, has ever been and will ever be. A knowledge of computers enables you to communicate with washing machines, the hoover, an old VCR machine or a DVD recorder.

Sadly that’s not I how roll. I played with computers when I was young. My career drifted along until I joined the IT department. I stayed there because I got on with my line manager, he offered to train me up. I enjoyed the work, I enjoyed the pay rise more. I developed a passion for the work, in my spare time I read up and enjoyed discovering new knowledge. The people I worked with were good teachers.

To certain family member s and friends this has made me a valuable resource on all things electrical. Today I got an email with this in it – Apple Ipod Nano for children – which one would you recommend? Well on the basis of my IT experience I DON’T HAVE A SCOOBY DOO! That is the local vernacular for I don’t have a clue. I have a beat up MP3 player that after an accident in the gym is now held together by sellotape. I have not changed the music on it for over 15 months now. It is full of the classics, in my honest opinion.

Sorry about the flippant superficial moaning first post. Slightly better than ‘Hello World!’ I hope. I am in the middle of a project that due to another team is now dangerously close to collapsing. This is my 15 minute walk away before I kill someone post.

PS My other half does the recording in my house.
