Hi everyone. My name is Jamie. I have a degree in Business Information Systems but live in a very rural area so computer-related jobs (for that matter..ANY jobs) are a little hard to come by. I started out with a company two years ago in a completely un-related field but they eventually saw the benefit of my computer skills and I am now their sole-provider of their IT support.
This has been a challenge for me, as you might guess, because I had the book knowledge but not the actual experience. I've spent hours reading over message boards and forums though, which have greatly helped.
Any I read seemed to be full of people that thought you must be an idiot to not already know the answer to your question. Needless to say, I never joined any of them. Yours seems to be a very welcoming and helpful group though so I wanted to say thank you to the administrators and members that encourage that.
Anyway, I've got to get back to figuring out the mess that Microsoft named Vista but I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself.
