    Hi all, My name is Naomi, I'm 28 and have been using computers for around 12 years, Im a beginner, just starting out in the IT world. I have never worked in IT and have only just decided to hopefully study Cert III or IV in IT soon.

    I am a volunteer for an animal rescue and have worked in customer service,hotel reception and as a Kennel Hand.

    Just wanted to pop in and say hi, i really like this thread and looking for somewhere to chat and get loads of helpful info, I spent most of last night going through the "Best Freeware" thread until my eyeballs were hanging out.:p

    please forgive me if I ever ask you a dumb question, I have SO much to learn.

    Welcome Naomi and make yourself at home.

    There is no such thing as a dumb question around here. Some are just much easier to answer than others. :p :D

    Welcome to Tech Guy! You mentioned that you were "new" to the IT world. Well, if you're serious about learning more, then the A+ certification is a great starting point.

    I'm new here too.

    I have been working on computers and networks for almost 20 years in one form or another. Mostly desktop and network admin jobs.

    About 10 years ago, while getting a Bachelor's degreein another field, I enrolled in the CISCO Engineering program to take the CCNA cert. (of course, I never took the test)

    The thinking was this: I already have (!0 years ago) a basic understanding of PC repair, troubleshooting, etc.. The CCNA course gave me an invaluable insight into Networking that, looking back, I would never have received elsewhere.

    Just a thought. Good Luck!
