    St Annes (aaaa!)

    AardPsymon the insane

    Ok.... me in brief...

    studied computing as a minor for BSc with bio major.

    Now thanks to the insane job market I'm working in a school as a BOFH. (see http://www.theregister.co.uk/odds/bofh/ for definition)

    I don't hate the job, but I definately want out and preferably up. Up the pay scale and up the responsibility.

    Living in St Annes currently, south of blackpool. Think elephant graveyard but for people.

    As a concequence of all this, I am certifiably insane but when it comes to windows problems I can often help.

    Now that that is dealt with....off back to do "work"...ie...solve level 7 of hack-test.com.....

    Hi, and welcome to AO.

    Yes, schools don't pay that well............ you really need a University or technical college to get half decent money. Lawyers and accountants seem to be more generous..............they just pass the costs on to their clients

    Oh, its not just the pay...its the pain of seeing screen shots of year 11 (age 16) typing in for their timed practical task (exam on pcs) and seeing:

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Daz doing his BAcS GCs.e
    Or perhaps I'm looking for a solution to a problem e.g. which reg key to delete to get a menu item from the desktop context menu and of course the first stop is Google. In goes the search, AHA! this forum thread appears to have the perfect solution! *click* Access denied by smart filter. Its built in to the proxy too so there is NO way to bypass it, its all off-site and run by the LEA.

    So, happy to be here. Happy to find a technical place not blocked by smart filter.
