Hello folks. Just signed up looking for some help troubleshooting some issues. So here I am. A little background about me... My father was a roofer... so I became a roofer.. been on roofs since I could climb a ladder. On the other hand my mother has been in and out of university since I was a child. So we always had a computer around the house. This is how I became interested in computers and had the opportunity to learn the basics of computers. Anyways.. long story short..  moved and married into a remote community where I did all the roofing contracts. Moved away for a couple years and came back.. No more work.. I got hired as a system administrator with absolutely no networking experience. In the interview I explained I was just the guy in the family that repaired everyone computers and fixed or hooked up there routers. Dabbled in HTML for a couple years... Than became hardcore PC gamer. anyways.. they said ok great you got the job.. so here i am. looking after a small network with 2 servers a vm and sql, 60 computers and the freedom to make mistakes.. Also getting training paid for Comptia A+ / Network + anything i can do online... so anyways.. hello and ill be around.

And the freedom to make mistakes.

 

The man who never made a mistake never made anything.
