    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.

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Hi, like others in this thread, I've been watching the forum for a long time. I finally plucked up courage to join at Christmas.

    I'm in a Junior School, part time. My job title is ICT Technician/ICT Teaching Assistant, and this is my fifth academic year. The bulk of my hours are officially allocated to being in ICT classes to assist staff and pupils, which means that I do a lot of unofficial hours keeping on top of the tech stuff that most staff seem to expect to happen by magic. When I started this job it was a new post, so I have been able to develop it as I've gone along. This also means, like others, that my job description now bears no relation to the amount and variety of things I actually do. As in other primary setups, the ICT Co-ordinator is a full-time teacher. I am the only in-house support.

    We started out with a Winsuite peer-to-peer network, moved onto Viglen Classlink with a small Suite of 11 computers and 16 in classrooms, and now have an LNM Windows 2003 Server setup, running a Suite of 31 XP's and the old machines relocated to classrooms and still running Win 2000 Prof. No Ranger or similar. Just LNM and AD and Group Policies. Fun!

    Previously I was a mum-at-home, and prior to that I worked at a university as their Computer Laboratory Assistant (DOS days!). I am largely self-taught, and the only IT qualification I hold is a dual ECDL/BCS level 2!!

    Now you know my sad position in the world of IT, can I say how good it is to finally find a site that happily includes female members and those who work in primary schools.

    Its at this point, that I , as is my duty as a male computer nerd, have to begin drooling and filling my mind with lustful thoughts at the prospect of computer savvy females in the vicinity.

    Its not a conscious thing, its simply evolution, decades of compnerding creating electrical pulses in the binarythalimus section of the brain, which in turn form images of scantily clad tech women sat at a PC. These same chemicals cause the thought of a female gamer to stir the same kinds of stimulation that women eating a flake in the old adverts used to stir in normal men. Its truly an unavoidable side effect of computers. I hear the EC are commissioning a study into its effects.

    Nevertheless, welcome to the boards, and excuse any of us whose typing becomes a little erratic whilst posting in your threads

    beg your pardon? Is that what they call it these days?

    Oh... you said "erratic"..... my mistake! ops:

    I'm also a new member, and when i'm not lowering the tone, i'm a Systems Manager at a school in Brum.

    Quals: BSc (Hons) Comp Sci, currently doing a MSc Comp Sci part-time
    I started to work towards an MCSE but struggling with time more than content.

    Job Desc: Anything with a plug or looks vaguely technical is "mine/ours".

    Looking forwards to using this site as somewhere to bounce ideas off, get feedback on ideas, and help anybody else i can. Oh and world peace..... cant forget that.

    Speaking of which, my girlfriend can give me quite a run on console games.

    I still wear the nerd and FPS trousers in our relationship though!

    Another Brummie to the cause

    Welcome Lee_K_81

    Although strictly speaking I'm not a Brummie, born in Leicester, lived in numourous places around the globe, now live in Wolverhampton and work in Sutton Coldfield.

    Have I gone off-topic yet?

    It's borderline, teetering on the edge.

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Just to say "Hi" - another BETT recruit. One who wishes she'd known about EduGeek earlier!

    A brief intro:
    Far too long ago I did a degree in computing (starting on punch cards!) before becoming a mainframe PL/1 progammer and then Systems Programmer/DBA.

    I was a helper at my kids primary school until they realised how much I knew about computers and ended up as IT support there. I'm now supporting the staff, pupils and PCs at a small prep school 5 minutes from home.

    Officially I'm ICT Support Assistant/Librarian... though the job includes Marketing and all sorts!

    With a Windows 2003 Server and 24 XP PCs (the network was installed only 12 months ago) I'm enjoying it.
