Hi everyone, well I registered a little while ago but realised I'd yet to introduce myself. I'm Claire, I'm an ICT tech for a secondary school in the Forest of Dean and have been so for 9 years now. I'm an attempted general fixer of anything that goes wrong.
Hey Guys and gals welcome to Edugeek
Greetings everybody, my name is Jason and I'm the IT Tech for St.Bernard's School in Cumbria. My hobbies include slaying zombies, eating beans and asking people if they've tried turning it off and on again.
Special interest in security, workstation tweaking, overclocking and pies.
Hey JP - Welcome , my undead redeadifying friend.
As a Northwest (Lancashire) lad originally I can relate to the special interest in pies. Meat and potato or pork primarily.
See you round the board,

Hi all... Dave here... I happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and find myself Interim Data Manager at Todmorden High School...
As well as the standard day-to-day data management tasks I've been given the job of implementing SISRA as a web-based reporting tool for an established SIMS system. Considering that two weeks ago I knew nothing about either of these systems it seems to be going reasonably well and I feel like I'm getting up to speed quickly...
My background includes 12 years mucking about with data migration in large ERP systems (primarily SAP / Oracle) so it's come as a bit of a shock to find myself working in education.
Cheers all... Looks like a lot of skills/knowledge on this forum
Welcome Dave. Looks like the Northerners are all arriving today. Greetings from an ex-pat Lancashire lad marooned in Yorkshire.
Sounds like you're going great guns with the SIMS project. If you are needing any support with it though, let us know and we'll see if we can put you in touch with a helpful tecchy at Capita - they are one of our business partners.
Hi all, Brian is my name, I work for, and am part owner of a small IT/Computer company in the States (Maine) we do work for small businesses that do not have an IT dept. We build and repair systems (PCs) and servers, plan and deploy networks. We also have started implementing VM environments. I have a couple of clients with some strange printer, and group policy issues (which I will post later) happening. So I hope I can learn something from you folks.
My name is Anthony Nneke, I am the Internal Schools Business Manager at Microsoft UK, Reading. I am currently writing a blog discussing what I think are the top 5 challenges that schools currently face and will face.
I would really be interested to hear your views, whether you agree or whether there are points I have missed. Here are some of my points I have thus far.
1. Budget Cuts; 2.a, Knowing where to get advice from , 2.b, - due to NO BSF, Removal of LA Support, 2.c, -No BECTA support/guidance; so schools are possibly making decisions they have not had to make before. 3. Computer Science - ICT in the curriculum. 4. Devices -wanting to bring devices under pressure, from Parents, and senior leadership teams, pressure to attract kids to schools 5. How do schools provide anytime, anywhere learning ( Cloud Services).
The aim of gaining your feedback is to ensure that I arrange the relevant webinars geared towards provide you with solutions to those challenges. Microsoft are committed to education and I am committed to ensuring this is realised in schools.

all you s and the oldies who i've missed
My name is Logan, from Lawrence, MA, USA
I help manage 19 schools for the Lawrence Public Schools as one of the "Senior Network Analysts", which of my point of view, is just a fancy name for the HR Department to call a IT Tech that knows a bit of everything, not afraid to learn and/or hasn't learn to stop touching things outside of his/her comfort zone.
