Recently the girlfriend and me have been looking more active into our planned move to the land down under that is Australia. So being in I.T. I thought I would see if there any blogs or information about working in the industry in Oz. Alas, I couldn’t find anything which was vaguely showing even a glimpse.
While looking, I found plenty of the normal tech blogs, computer companies strewn with google adverts and all the other stuff you get. Of course, if you know of one, let me know.
Are there any? Life in the eyes of an IT guru? Tried googling it but noting came up. Even tried replacing IT with “computer” but still zip.
Anyway, I might start one of my own. “Life in the eyes of an IT guy in the UK” catchy title?
Who said juggling exams, work and home life was easy should be shot. Maybe it’s just not me organising my life properly but I think I am actually really good at it.
After working my 8hrs with computers and customers all day, the last thing you want to do is come home and study more computer stuff. I used to say to people who asked that I loved it. And I do. I used to come home all the time after work and study. Got through 4 exams in 6 months leaving me with just one exam, 70-291, left before a MCSA would be mine. But alas, I slowed down when coming into Christmas time and never found that bite again.
I have joined a gym to prep myself for a long bike ride in September, I have my xbox night on Monday and Wednesday, it doesn’t leave a lot of time left for study.
Well this weekend I sat down and had a look though my 291 notes and book and think I am ready except for Chapter 2 (Subnetting stuff) and doing some RRAS practise.
I spent this Friday going through Chapter 2 and I think it is coming all clear. There is a little murky bit in the corner which once I re-read and do some practise ones, I will have subnetting licked. Just don’t ask me about sub-subnetting or I might kill someone with binary numbers.
Need to recap DNS and DHCP stuff but quite confident on that front so all is good.
So an exam date for the end of April? Is that do-able with everything else I have to do this month? I think so.
