    Update: Am now Network Manager for a fairly big high school in Dunedin. Made the move back into full time working in a school earlier this month and enjoying the 'challenge' so far. Am really keen to be part of a really strong forum for NZ SysAdmins/Technicians/Co-ordinators on here so hope that we can grow our regional forum into a serious NZ group

    Hi Everyone,

    I work in Christchurch for doing systems integration work and supporting a number of schools. Fun sites include PC School on Citrix in an all Mac environment. I do a lot of Windows Server, EBS, SBS, Blade, SAN and virtualisation work. More info on my blog:

    Steve Knutson’s IT Blog

    Pretty interesting forums here. I look forward to participating.

    cheers
    Steve

    Excellent Blog Steve. I have been thinking of doing the same thing but I might just read yours instead I laughed out loud when I read the part about you holding back from helping the hapless laptop user in Samoa, it happens all the time doesn't it? Last night a real "know it all" friend of a friend starting going on about how his laptop webcam wasn't working and he needed to do a virus scan to fix it, and if that didn't work he was going to fix his "register" and maybe even install Server 2008 as his OS instead, because (didn't I know....) it was much better than Windows XP... I was tempted to either offer to fix his laptop, or to drive over it with my landrover, but I just turned, walked away and grinned to myself....

    Kia ora

    Greetings all. I'm a "web guy" at a Uni in NZ working in a small team focused on supporting and enhancing eLearning tools and practice. Spotted a mention of this site in a moodle.org forum recently and liked what I saw in posts here so thought I should sign up. Interested to see how many kiwis are participating here, and looking forward to meeting some new faces, or should I say avatars. (BTW, seems like noone uses their real name here???)

    Hi and welcome to edugeek!

    There are a few here that use their real names, but many prefer to protect themselves a little... it's too easy to get yourself into trouble when discussing issues at work (especially 'behind the red door'!) These are, after all, public forums.

    It all makes for fun when we go to conferences with real names on our badges and end up having to introduce yourself by your posting name so people knew who you were.

    OK so I'm the Computer Tech, Network Admin, Photocopier Refiller, Laptop Antiviruser at John McGlashan College here in Dunedin.

    We run mostly XP and are moving into Windows 7 quite quickly. We're a TELA school too and have ~35 of those and a pile of exlease ones too. We have a lot of wireless about and it's getting a bit creaky. Servers are Windows 2003 and starting with some 2008. We also run a bit of Ubuntu on servers too. We're using SchoolZone for email, internet and video conferencing. We have an Exchange server but it's not quite live yet. We're using VMWare server for some things too and we also run Access-IT new this year, and KnowledgeNet seems to be the big push at the moment... also using Clickview and ABTutor...

    I love my job for its randomness and variety but it can also drive me a little crazy.. I love to try and convince the yr7 kids that I'm really very scary.. but they never seem to believe me..

    that's it
