    What sector do you work in

    Well, it's about time we got a better idea of just where our members are located in the world of IT. It may come as a shock to many of our educationally based members that quite a lot of people on EduGeek are not actually working in education! Mainly this is down to 2 reasons:

    1. The extreamly high quality of information contained within the forums and accesable by posting a question.

    2. The general community feel of the forums and site where we are not plagued by 14 year old script kiddies.


    To this end I would like you all to fill in the poll so we can get a better idea of where EduGeek can begin to cater for 'other' areas we currently do not.

  2. Thanks to Dos_Box from:
