Hi Everyone,

I have been a long time reader of both the articles and the forums. Many of times I have had an opinion and just thought – IF I had an account I could express them LOL

Anyways, so as my first post I was curious what the division of forum users are either,

A: Work in an IT enviroment

Or

B: Just love Computers / Electronics

Would love to hear back from people – Myself I have been within the IT world for over 10 years.

QUESTION: Do you work in an IT enviroment or do you just enjoy computers / electronics?

Trying to get into IT because I love technology. I'm thinking about getting my Network+ and maybe even Novel certs. Currently have my IC3, but that's easy stuff.

I'm at uni just now doing a degree in Multimedia Technology but on my days off I fix and build computers for people in the area and also help some local businesses with setting up networks, upgrading, tech support etc. Also yes I love technology, I'm not obsessed with gadgets or anything but I love getting myself something new to play with every so often and like to keep up with current tech news. Ohh and welcome to the forums :)
