    Hello, my name's Mike, I'm IT tech at a school in Welwyn Garden City, Herts.

    I started in IT when it was called DP (Data Processing), in 1970, working for the old NCB in S. Wales......so, yes, that's 39 years and counting in this wonderful whacky world of IT.

    Been doing this ever since. Worked mostly for IT outsourcing companies, ICL, CSC, Unisys, and others, mostly on a contract basis, all over the UK and Holland. Gave up contracting in the early 2000's when the market was flooded with college-leavers willing to take half the going contract rate in order to get a job in IT, did a few years of private work before deciding it was too much aggro for too little money and took the job that I have now.

    I run desktop support, server support, e-mail support, manage the proxy/firewall, switches, networking....just about everything IT-related......except SIMS, which I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot barge-pole.

    Probably won't be posting here much, but I check the forum very couple of days, see what peeps are up to, what problems they encounter and how they solve those problems.

    I intend to see out my working life here, retire, pick up my pension and go to live in the South Seas, somewhere cheap and third world, preferably where the young ladies of whatever tribe revere grey-haired, gap-toothed, old western men, take care of their every need and you can all guess the rest, I'm sure.

    Hello everybody!

    My name is Zdenka and I'm a part-time technician at a Primary school. I am also in the middle of my Bsc Computer networks degree, as well as running a busy house - 3 children, lol

    I am also a woman, which doesn't seem to be the norm - just got my e-mail for the embc training in Loughborough entitled Dear Sir - hope they'll let me in!!!

    I started in September and got basically just thrown in, so it's very much on the job learning - if I don't find a solution, tough! Well, not strictly speaking true, we do have some lovely guys at Matlock helping us out.

    I actually love this although it's a bit mad It's great to go to the infant site and get questions like Whats your name, What are you doing to our computers and Can you do up my buttons, I can't do buttons.

    There!

    Anyone in Derbyshire? See you at the embc conference!

    Hi Zdenka, if you ever move on to a Secondary school, you'll find the questions are more or less the same.

    But it's the staff that need they're buttons done up.
