    Don't worry, Midget ... a sort of in-joke that I cannot escape. having been in service to Her Majesty (as have few other on here) I am keen to do my own ironing ... and I have taken the opportunity to take people to task for not taking it seriously enough ...

    Now I can't seem to escape it ... I get followed everywhere by people asking me which brand of starch is best, whether hot and steaming is better than cool and slow ...

    I keep saying I need to get a life and the fact that I am here, typing this, at gone 12.30 in the morning just proves it.

    Now this is stretching my limits ...

    Gadeal ni torrir iaith terfyn

    I hate to think of how grammatically correct that is ... but the only other phrases I know are insults (I can insult people in many languages ... )

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    HI Guys and Gals!

    Thought I'd better introduce myself! i've been reading all posts and learning a lot.

    My name is Robert, just come out of uni. I studied a BA in Business Entrepreneurship. I'm currently working at Ise Community College in Kettering, Northamptonshire (Were a secondary school!). I use to attend the school and helped the IT technicans over several summers! I have returned with the opportunity to implementing a new project! which is really cool. Its all about training for staff and implementing new ideas such as school wide e-mail and researching VLE's. I've created the project from scratch so its my little baby lol.
    anyways...I'm self taught with a lot of help from current IT technicans and messing around at home.

    Our current set up is 2 domains, office and curric. DotICT work with our office network (and the bursar likes to take control of that!mmmm) and we look after the curric with 3 2k3 servers and xp clients! with AD and Ranger.

    I'm also a weekend manager a Currys.Digital or Dixons as people still call it! lol

    Robert!

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Hi all

    My name is Pete Geilern.

    I work in dorset in 4 different schools.

    My main school is a middle which has been very fortunate funding wise so is running very smoothly and gives me a chance to muck around with some advanced stuff.

    I work at another middle school which is full of old 98 machines running Netcare from Schoolcare. This part of the job is pretty much just keeping things running in the hope one day they will get some funding.

    I also work in a first school who I have just help setup a new ICT suite and a Special needs school where I am trying to improve the system they already have.

    I found this site by following a link in Geoff/Evilgrins sig on another forum. Already been useful and hope i can be of some help to someone else

    Anyway great site guys, nice to meet you all!

    Hi Disorder
    You sound like me (except you have more schools) - I am in Dorset too and have one middle and one first school - the latter with 98 machines and an NT server slowly dying - running Netcare 2!
    Wish I had some funding though!

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    I am a new recruit from the BETT Show, after being a passive reader of the site for a few months.

    I'm an IT Technican in Lincolnshire (14 month contract), currently in my gap year. I'm still undecided on whether or not to go to university, although I have a place guaranteed at the University of Central England to do a Computer Networks & Security Degree. I'm sure I won't make my final decision until the first few weeks of September..

    I've been into computers for a few years now, and more recently focused on the networking side of things. I'm finally bored of (and have run out of money for) Microsoft products so am aiming myself towards linux at the moment.

    Anyway, I'm keen to contribute and share my experiences and advice.
