    Hey up.

    Another female. Another non-geek. You are going to be overrun (albeit very, very slowly...)

    I'm a parent governor at a Special school. We have no geek. We are geekless.

    We manage (from what I can tell) by putting up with some truly rubbish software, because it is all via a single supplier so no arguments about who supports what thing, and by never updating *anything* if we can possibly help it.

    We're about to update a pile of stuff.

    I am off now to go look at profile settings and see how to put something along the lines of "I am not a geek, please be nice to me" at the bottom of all my posts... There may be a few of them.

    Yay, I'm not alone! I've changed my signature too (I think we may be the minority, but I'm sure going to try to join in!)

    Hi All,

    Just signed up today. I'm an Exams Officer at a school. They keep me in a cupboard and feed me puzzles to solve, with data on Sims, on a regular basis to keep me quiet. Sometimes I need a pointer or two.

    Am I a Geek? I admit to having a bit of coding experiance, in a past life. For those old enough to remember, object code patches for ICL ME29 machines and have used a machine running George 3.

    Maybe a bit Geeky!

    Hello All,

    I have been signed up for a while and creeping around the forums but only just got around to posting here. I am a ICT Network Administrator in a 2 form entry primary school down in rainy Cornwall. Already found mainy useful forums on here and hoping I might be able to help people back.

    Hi Alex, another non-orange Essex person! See? We're not all walking Wotsits! What school are you at, and what's your role?

    Hello I'm Glory (think the Buffy the Vampire Slayer hell goddess). I was an IT teacher, I'm now doing my MSc in Advanced Computing at the University of Kent. I aspire to all things geekage and intend (eventually) to head back to the classroom in some form or other. Possibly not to kiddies, possibly not full time, possibly not as a "teacher". But I miss doing the teaching.

    I kinda know bits of Java, Javascript, want to learn PHP (in a hurry), Ruby and Python are next on the list of things to do. Oh and I'm a security freak. Anything hacky or stoppy-hacky I'm there with bells on.

    And it turns out I went to Uni with someone who worked with ZeroHour. Who I met yesterday at BETT.

    Small world!

    Hello to all, geeks, non-geeks, females and males alike!
    Not sure your sig will help @Ali-Edge as the geeks are speaking English to the best of their ability I'm afraid
