Hey Everybody

  1. Hey - My name is Tracy and am a Computer Services business owner with 27 years background in IT from the federal government (yeah I know, does that count? LOL). I am always learning and searching to know more about the myriad of problems that occur with the systems we see, especially with hardware. We work with home users and small businesses and offer pickup and delivery. I live on the MS Gulf Coast and we have been in business since about a year before Hurricane Katrina and continue to get busier every day.

    I spent 27 years working for the federal government, first as a data analyst (geophysics and oceanography) and then as a system administrator primarily on UNIX systems and some PCs.

    I am here to learn and contribute in any way I can. My favorite part of my business is eradicating viruses and spyware, especially sleuthing out the ones that are the most difficult to find. (another member eloquently pointed out that a reload could be faster at times but I prefer the challenge!)

    thanks and I look forward to seeing ya'll round here.

    Tracy

    wow, this is awesome, I thought that the IT industry was predominantly male oriented, so I am glad to see other women in here enjoying challenges with computers.

    I am sure that I will learn lots from all of you.

    I have already posted a problem, but thought I had better chuck in an introduction on the introductions page, so...

    Hi all, I am a relative newcomer to the computer and IT industry. I only bought my first computer about 6 years ago, upgraded that several times and now have 4 computers (2 notebooks and 2 desktops) and about to acquire another.

    So far my experience is more in the hardware side of things, in fact, am building a brand new system tomorrow in that I go and buy all the parts and put them together myself. This I can do, programs is another thing altogether! Some programs I am quite proficient at, but sometimes I am thrown one that I dont understand at all.

    I am about to throw myself back into IT courses, have started certificate 2 in IT but got really sick and dropped it so that I could recover properly, a year later I am almost there.

    I am sure I will get lots of great ideas and advice from many of you over the next few years.

    Katrina
