    New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    Hi all

    I thought that this might be handy for new members to introduce themselves to the forum - whether they be techies or teachers [or both lol] alike - especially with the forum getting so busy, its kinda hard saying hi to everyone to those that have joined up

    Cheers and post away here with hello's and where your from, etc

    Regards
    Nath.

    P.S. If you have time please fill out your location and school (if applicable) in your profile. This will assist our members to help you bettre if help is nearby. Thank you and welcome

    Hi All,

    I'm Alan, Network Manager at a large comprehensive on the outskirts of London.

    Was IT Security Manager in a v.large insurance co until outsourcing got me redundancy! So now I am using my skills to benefit education. Hope I can help others.

    I work for a public school as an AV technician, principally in the Modern Languages Dept. 1st line support on Sanako (Tandberg) language lab built around a suite of 27 PCs. I keep the linguists off the proper Geeks backs as best as I can.

    Despite working in languages I only speak basic Geek, and I leave the higher level stuff to those more fluent in the black-arts. DVDs, videos, TVs and the like are bread & butter, also H&S Ctte and other such fun stuff!

    Hi. My name is Tony and I'm a ...


    I'm a ...

    I'm a ...

    *sigh* I'm a Geek (sorry ... doing this always makes me think we are attending a meeting of Geeks Anonymous javascript:emoticon('post',%20'message',%20'') !)

    I'm Director of IT at a Technology College in Corby, Northants. I have been assimilated into Senior Manglement and I am only allowed to play with the toys if I am a good boy.

    Hi, I'm Richard.

    I teach ICT at The Royal School in Wolverhampton, but also provide technical support (light timetable). I only started this sept and I am the first official in-house support they have had, previously everything being done by full time teachers and a one-day-a-week support contract.

    Changes are afoot.

    Re: New Edugeek Users - Introduce yourself here :)

    I'm the Network Manager for a large ICT centre, I look after a couple of hundred machines (XP, XP x64, OS X, Linux) and a few racks of servers (2003, 2003 x64, Linux).

    Been working in education for 7 years, MCP in Windows 2000, sitting my CCNA in January.

    Got a fairly broad knowledge base of all things geeky, internet technologies, LAN/WAN design, security, coffee drinking etc.

    I'm Alex and I'm an ICT manager.

    Sounds like an AA meeting. '80'

    I lean more to the administration side of things but desperately try and conform to the Geek code.

    I work in a largish middle school in Somerset, Ooo argh, and cope with four servers, with up to 200 workstations.

    Thinking of diving into the qualificatio pool again to get a MCSE or equivalent.

    Mornin' ladies and gents,

    My name is Rob, I'm the Technical Support Manager for an LEA, I've only been in the education sector for about 2 and a half years, in the past I have been part of the Manufacturing/Business Support industry.

    Looks like a really good site that is well used! Look forward to speaking to a lot of you.

    Rob.

    I *think* (and I'm happy to be corrected) that I'm the only female member here (that's genetically female, anyway!).

    Anyway, I'm Zoe, I'm no relation to Indie (above), I'm from Milton Keynes like SYSMAN and actually work at his old school, but I've never met him (nor am related!).

    My job title is officially IT Administrator (I have a Network Manager above me in the pecking order), however I often find that the scope of my work stretches into Network Management (ie,yes, I do his job) and beyond.

    I have an awful lot to learn still, despite being 5 years into my IT 'career' (ho ho). I started at one of the large UK banks in their Tech Support, working with *nix, then moved to a solicitors (never again), before moving into a school environment last year.. However, I still feel like a complete novice compared to some. Time to start considering my MCSE, methinks...
