Am having a good nose around and it looks to be a very exciting forum
I am Network Manager for Private School in York and think i will make great use of this forum unlike so many others that seem to be full of 10year oldes with no idea.
I'm a Network Manager at school in Southampton.
I started in August 07 as a temp to cover the then current Network manager's leave in September. I had no IT support background, other than intrest in computers. I learned a lot from the Network Manager in the first two weeks, and then on the eve of his two weeks leave he quit! So what was only supposed to be a months contract has turned out to be much more!
I found Edugeek when looking for answers to some problems I was having, and found it very useful. I have just started to posted too.
I'm just in the progress of upgrading the hardware at the school (replacing all the desktops, servers and laptops - staff and pupils) so its challenging but fun! I have to say I never enjoyed a job so much!
My name is Chris. I am the Network manager at Faringdon Community College, Oxon.
I'm Dante. Presently working as technology teacher and (sort of) LAN Administrator at a K to 12 school with a population of about 350 students in northern Manitoba, Canada.
I administer a lab of 25 Macintosh machines, and a few others in various classrooms. Also deal with user accounts on the Novell network, and troubleshooting various machines (Windows and Mac, printers, etc) around the place.
And, yes, I'm a geek! Had the whole apartment networked with NeXT slabs while I was in University, and they were setup to run AFP so I could access them with my PowerBook. Enough said!
Longtime lurker, finally joined.
Network admin at a northern BC school district. We're a rather large Windows network (40 servers, 1500+ workstations) with a school or three of Mac thrown in the mix. Seeing as we're getting budget slashed and layoffs everywhere (including me, ha!) I thought it would be a good time to join up.
FYI: I originally found this site by Googling "SuccessMaker sucks". :D
Wow, welcome to our canadian brethren :)
Ahh. You probably had Safe Search on. ;)

Got a massive project over the summer with some 200 dell's and network cabling being re-done in the ICT block!
Hi welcome to the forum! Hope to see you around.
If you don’t mind me saying don’t you think that is a small network compared to the size of the school?
Welcome to the forums! hope to see you around.
echo what FN says that does seem small for the amount of kids n staff lol.
But whats the deal :P if it works and u do what u need to do in school with the minimum amount of kit. better for urselfs :D
i some ways it does seem small somit along the lines of 9 kids to every 1 pc thats coming down to 4 to 1. why over do things if it works! we have full cisco network up to L3 switch's and school is 5 main buildings all fibre together with full cisco wireless network. i think we maybe the only school in the england to be running cluster servers!
