Whhops! I've already gone rampant on your forums without Introducing myself!
I'm Glenn, 26, an "IT Support Officer" from South Australia.
I've actually been a lurker here for some time, since working in Education I've had several queries that have led me here for a resolution, so i thought it fair to sign up and hopefully give something back.
Before securing my position at a High School in SA, I had been a Help Desk Officer at various places, notably a Hospital in Adelaide, and a Technical College. I then had a brief stint as a teacher of IT, before deciding that despite the awesome pay, i couldn't hack the workload (lazy beast i am).
So here i am in Catholic Eucation! IT Support Officer to a 3 campus school. (Although I'm also a Desktop Admin and general dogsbody aswell, i just don't get the glorious pay packet!) I've been lucky (or not) enough to have been here through some major transitions, with the amalgamation of the three schools, plus a move to a Catholic WAN environment, and our main site has recently gone from being Netware to Server 2003.
It's hard work, but usually rewarding!
Thanks for making me welcome already!
Hello all, i've been buzzing the site for a few months now and thought it finally time to join up!
I'm Iain, a Network manager for a big independent school in Godalming. Prior to this I was in IT for a big pharma company, looking after IT in the UK and US offices, along with the odd trip to India for help out there.
Just wanted to say the forum is great, been browsing for some info and found it extremely useful.
All the best,

Thanks for the nice things you said, and welcome
Hi, im Andrew
Just a quick question ^^
I'm not an IT Professional, im a student. May be a silly question, i know edugeek is specifically aimed at IT professionals such as high school technicians etc.
Would it be wrong if i used edugeek for my common windows problems, has such a great community.
to edugeek! 'Search' is your friend as many common problems have already been answered on these boards; which is probably how you found us in the first place! Who knows, maybe you'll join us on 'the other side' in the future!
Hello, 1st post here!
I'm a Technician at a small school near York, I look forward to using this resource.
I am Justin an ICT Technician at Wlkden high School in Salford
I have been here for answers many a time and thought it was about time I said hello! I am an ICT Technician at a High School in Manchester and over the last year I have found this forum to be an awesome resource!
I just hope I can be as much help to all of you as you have been to me so far.....
There are many others from your part of the world on here.
Perhaps you can make it to the edugeek May conference at Half term in Chorley and meet some of the others? (it's too far for me)
