The primary intended use of this blog is to share IT related tips and tricks based on experience. I have studied Computers since high school and was very interested in technology in general while growing up. No, no I am not a Generation-X og Generation-Y person! I am born in the early 80’s so that rules out that part. I am blessed to work with technology that I adore and what I am fascinated by, so to cut the chase, this blog is supposed to give something back to the IT community. I feel like I am getting old, as I am reaching my forties, so I feel a bit obligated to share my experience with the young guns and some of the newbies within the IT field.
