And so, our story begins...

Always two, there are... One master and one apprentice.

I haven't posted a blog in a while... So, have a short bit of randomness.


So, a while back, while at a CC3 training doodah, I started talking with one of the techs. Turns out he works at the school near to where I live.

From what I gathered he was new to tech support, so we swapped details and I said to ask if he wasn't sure about anything* [I think I also mentioned EduGeek as well.]

Now, I'm getting emails/phone calls every so often asking about things and I'm giving out advice where I can [Because I'm nice like that.]


I have gained an apprentice. [Though, with the amount of help I've given, I should start charging consultation fees.]


*I'm not an expert or anything, I've just been playing around with it for a while and have learned a lot through making mistakes.

    You never know where these contacts might lead. I used to give advice to a Data Manager. When she left her manager asked "So do you know anyone suitable for the role?" Months later I am sitting at her desk on a higher wage!

    It is always satisfying to suddenly realise, after months of harassing others for help and feeling like you're constantly teetering on a knife-edge of ignorance and incapability, that you now know enough for others to come to you for advice.

    And then, while basking in the glory of being a mentor... you accidently break the server in a way previously unheard of.
