    Hey fellow Edu users, I'm nothing to do with a school, just a general user who thought I'd make use of this forum as it's full of useful info.

    Welcome, LoveToLearn: as you are not in a school you may be a little confused by some of the references and content on this site; just remember that most of us are a bit mad and you'll be fine

    Thanks, I'm not a complete novice, just a learner (used to acronyms in all shapes and forms lol), even thinking about a career change and going into the IT sector. I always fix my friends PC's be it hardware related (to a certain degree) or software/OS side.

    Example, other day friend of mine says "PC don't work" work, a common response from people totally clueless (bless em) so I took a quick look. Took me 30 mins after tests to diagnose (imo) what was wrong with it, a hard drive! clicking, whirring/nasty noise. Corrupted C drive error. and S.M.A.R.T test in bios....... after 40 minutes the indian support guy told me that was indeed the case and it would be picked up next day. I'm thinking I told you that from the start you fool *rant over* lol

    Hope to learn a few things here from the pro's.

    So that's a more in-depth introduction of myself

    I'm sure that you know a great deal.
    I meant that working in a school is a very distinct environment and that there would be occasional references to things that would make no sense to you! (sometimes they make no sense to us either )
    You will certainly learn a lot - it is the best place I have ever found for learning about computers.

    Final Year Student looking for work.

    Hello everyone,

    I am a final year student at the university of Bolton, studying a BSc Hons in Internet Communications and Networks and now starting to look for jobs within industry as I finish in June this year. I thought Id try an array of options in order to secure a job one begin posting on forums if anyone knew of networking jobs within the North West region. I also volunteer for a charity in Salford assisting the the Network Admin there.

    Regards

    Dave

    Can't offer you work, but feel you're going in the right direction by doing volunatry work. Get yourself known as someone who "does". Good luck

    Sorry about that Adam, you would not believe the amount of companies we get on here trying to sneakily promote themselves having just signed up. I hope you understand why your post was interpreted in this manner. Oh and welcome

    I will introduce myself on that starter! I have already posted to the admins about this.

    I am in the process of setting up a consultancy specialising in educational management. Having worked in this field for some time writing Data Protection Policies etc as well as being a management consultant for a short time. I am NOT on here to try and advertise myself or to get any business - I am doing ok in that respect already. For this reason I will not post any details of the company on EduGeek.

    I signed up for the forum to hopefully help some people out with anything that falls into my area of expertise and to get some help myself with some of the more techical aspects (not an IT genius by any stretch of the imagination).

    Tom
