I have migrated Exchange all through the versions from 5 to 2010 and Windows from NT3.51 through to Windows 2008 R2.  I enjoy solving problems and finding new solutions.

Over the years I have gained certifications in Novell, Microsoft, Citrix, 3Com which I have kept upto date throughout and more recently VMWare & Lefthand SAN/IQ and am looking forward to exploring these latest ones a lot further with the recent installation of a Lefthand iSCSI Virtualisation SAN with VMWare ESXi.

I started posting on EE at the begining of June 2009.  The first question I ever answered was on the 1st June 2009 and it was this one: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/Shell/Batch/Q_24453196.html

At the end of 2009 after posting for 7 months I finished the year with the following:

Exchange Zone - 8th Overall and 2nd for the year
Windows 2008 - 3rd Overall and 3rd for the year
Windows 2003 - 3rd for the year
Small Business Server - 4th for the year
Active Directory - 6th for the year

2009 Community Top Experts: http://www.experts-exchange.com/expertAwardsCommunity.jsp?year=2009

Most points by a rookie Windows 2003 Server
Most points by a rookie Exchange Email Server
Most points by a rookie Small Business Server

I finished the year in 9th place in All Zones for the year and 120th out of all experts overall.

My primary use of EE is to put something back into IT (I hope) and to continue to learn.  I have worked in IT for over 17 years and find resolving other peoples IT problems very rewarding.
