My name is Andy, I'm 36 and I'm from Cheshire in the UK. I have been a computer buff since the 80's when I owned a Commodore Vic-20( When I wanted a Spectrum), then a Toshiba MSX(when I wanted a Commodore 64), then a Commodore 64 (when I wanted an Amiga !!), Then an Amiga (when I wanted a PC !!). You get the picture anyway
I finally got there in the end in my quest for a PC lol. I now own a Medion Akoya Laptop and an HP Desktop.
I have been repairing and upgrading friends and families PCs for years now and a couple of years ago decided to get qualified for my efforts since if your not qualified, you get classed as "just another person who thinks they can fix PCs" . I studied for my A+ and passed in May 2010. I am now studying for my N+ and in the future, I would like to study for the MCTS 70-680 (Configuring Windows 7) and also for the CWNA.
I have been doing the odd bits and pieces since but I find time at a premium as I have to juggle my full time job of Assistant Warehouse Supervisor/Forklift Truck Driver.
I am here to learn as I know I am at the bottom rung of the ladder and I also know that there are people on here that certainly know their stuff (nobody knows this more than me lol !!! God knows I have been lurking in the background for long enough, taking advice on board).
Looking forward to learning from you all and making new friends too.
