Allow me to introduce myself...
Saturday, April 04, 2009 7:48 AM
Now that I've gotten a cople posts under my belt, I figure it's time for brief introduction. I've been an active myITforum member for a little over three years now (time sure does fly). I started participating on the forums when I accepted a role supporting an SMS 2003 environment. In that time I've gone from the "new guy" to the lead for the product in our company.
I enjoy perusing through the SMS database in search of ways to get more information out, which is why I tend to gravitate towards reporting. I've also developed an interest for the security side of things, seeing that we are the ones who deploy the Software Updates. It interests me (scares me?) what this arena is going to be like in 10 years.
On a personal level, I live nearby Akron/Cleveland, OH. I'm getting married this year and training for my second season of triathlons (specifically offroad, Xterra triathlons). It's a lot of work - both mentally and physically. Mountain biking is a great hobby of mine, but I need to find things to do when the trails are wet and muddy, so I run, cross-country ski, hike...basically anything that gets me outdoors and in the woods is best. I've also got an 18 month old rescue Italian Greyhound that both challenges me an brings me wonderful joy.
We've all had technical issues we couldn't search our way out of. We've all had those forum posts with zero responses where you realize everyone else is as clueless about it as you are. My goal with this is to share little bits of what I learn along the way in my adventures in Systems Management so as to increase the Internet knowledge base (and some other stuff while I'm at it). Hopefully I help someone out in the process, whether through a Google search on an issue or through regular readership. Regardless how you got here, thanks for coming.
