Post 3+ Months Ago

Hi all,

It's been quite some time since I was last active on these forums as I kind of fell out of my web-design hobby to focus on other things. Fast forward to 2012 and I've been unexpectedly offered the sole SysAdmin role in a small 50-user company after our former SysAdmin left, although I had no prior experience. It's been a couple of months of feeling around in the dark but I think I'm doing well. I do have the support of the Group IT Manager in New Zealand, but it's been mostly learning on the job, and I thought there could be a few guys around on Ozzu who would be able to answer any silly questions I may have in the future.

I've also been getting back into web-design - I'm currently working on a website for my girlfriend's business as well as my own personal one.

So, Ozzu, what's been going on in all this time? ;)

Hi Breeze!

Yeah it has been awhile since we last heard from you. I just took a look to see when your last post was and it was exactly one year ago to the day. Funny timing!

Congratulations on your system admin role, hopefully you are having fun with that! What sort of operating systems are you working with?

Hope to see you around more, I am sure we can help you from time to time :)

Oh, very coincidental! :D

We've got a mix of Windows 7/Windows XP desktops and hopefully all the XP's will be gone by the end of the year! As for servers: Red Hat, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Small Business Server 2003.

Hi Breeze! Its been a while since being on here for me too :) I remember you. Glad to hear all is still going well. I got out of IT a few years ago professionally but still dabble in it for my own causes and sites. :D
