Full Biography

I'm an Apache Armament Electrician (I fix helicopters) with no official training on SQL/IIS/SBS/ASP.NET etc.  However, the army decided it needed me to be the SQL DBA / Server / Network Admin for my unit.  In essence the Army came up to me said here's your new job.  When I asked about training they laughed maniacally in my face and started the fire to start frying my feet.  Needless to say the learning curve has been steep.  However, I have now officially changed my degree plan :).  I'm loving every minute of it (I actually said that with a straight face?).

I've been the admin for 5 networks with a total of around 370 computers for the last year.  Needless to say I've learned a lot and still have a lot to learn.  What I do know I've learned on my own through the school of hard knocks.  I've been a member of this playground (EE) for only a short time and have found my new spot to hang.  For those who have already helped me... Thanks :)..  For those who will help me in the future thank you :).
