Microsoft SBS tips, tricks and related technologies
Introduction
I've been working in the IT industry for the past 16 years and in that time have worked as 1st, 2nd and 3rd line support, been Head of IT for a media company, and successfully run my own business.

I'm currently working as a Technical Consultant for an IT company based in Oxford and started blogging as a way of organising and remembering the solutions to some common support issues I come across.

I hope you find the articles I've written useful.

Thanks,
Carl
