Third time lucky

Well, its been a few months since my old blog died when I cancelled the hosting and since I had to renew my domain this month I decided to go crazy and setup some new hosting and give this blogging thing another go.

Since I last posted anything i’ve started a new job, im now the systems administrator for and I get to play around with and manage all their servers (currently just 2 racks full but a third may arrive later this year when we deploy Exchange 2010 and WSS2010). All this is a great change of pace and a whole lot more fun than my previous job at, which, while teaching me a lot was a little too busy for my liking (try talking on the phone for 5-6 hours a day, 5 days a week!). While I do sometimes miss the chaos and banter of a busy office its certainly a lot nicer being my own master and I can finally start on my career path to becoming a BOFH 😀

So, as I trundle through the next few months/years(!?!), I’l be using this blog to post anything I find thats useful while I rollout our Windows 7 deployment, new Exchange 2010 server and then eventually a Sharepoint 2010 server aswell.


Im a Sys-Admin for a growing UK company working down on the sunny South Coast of England, I love all things techie, especially Exchange and Virtualisation stuff. When not tinkering I can normally be found playing online games such as Planetside 2, Dayz and Battlefield 4.
