Just thought I would stick my head in and say hi.
I'm a Field Technician and Consultant for a small IT firm who deal with all aspects of IT mainly home users and small businesses though we also provide support for several local primary schools as well though I mainly deal with the former. I will say that I'm not here to represent the firm I work but as individual who wants to use this site as a resource.

Welcome to all the people I've missed!
My first post using the new, shiny, sleek layout.

Hi Chris, great to hear your story and congratulations on getting the job! It sounds like you're going to be straight in the deep end, which is where your experience will start! I did a similiar degree to you at Southampton Solent University, (Computer Systems and Networking), but decided to go down the PGCE root! I'm a teacher now...
Edugeek will be excellent for you I think, there is so many great people on it and help is always at hand!
Good luck with everything, and using Edugeek!

My name is Andy and I'm an ICT Technician at Otley College in Suffolk.
I've been here about 18months, after 18 years in Casinos, so a big switch of career!
Loving the job, but not so much the students!!!
Many questions pre-occupy my mind, like....
Why DO students feel the need to visit Facebook during a lesson?....
What do they do with all the mice they steal?......
Why do the holidays have to end?.....
And my current favourite.....
What will be the reaction when they find out about all the things they now cannot do, thanks to me!!!!
Looking forward to reading through as many posts as I get time to!

Welcome to all
mullaney18: any of our sponsors will be able to help you - they are all pretty good (simon from CPLTD for new kit and John from ICT direct for really good nearly-new kit are my favourites!).
As for your problems, I think if you do some careful searching, there will be a thread to help with the server migration, and indeed ANYTHING else. If you really can't find any help - just shout, and about 10,000 of us will come running!
I take my hat off to you, and wish you all the best.

Why is it my fault that you've forgotten your password, and are now locked out of the system?
Have you ever heard of "Backup"?
When I turn down your request to release Facebook from the web filter, why do you continue to push the requests through? Do you think we'll change our minds?
The best thing about working in this sector is the heavy use of sarcasm!
"Yes, of course I will let you into ANY site you want!"
