I have been working in IT since 2001 for companies such as Computacenter and Getronics. I started out as a first line support analyst supporting heterogeneous networks but rapidly worked my way up the ranks expanding my knowledge as I went to include areas such as system builds, deployments, networking, and security to name a few.In 2008 I decided to concentrate on the monitoring and management of large enterprise networks using Microsoft's System Center Operations Manager (OpsMgr) 2007 of which I have extensive knowledge. As testament to this the Windows Management User Group (WMUG), invited me to join their ranks as a Community Leader where I have been invaluable in helping to bolster the OpsMgr skills to the benefit of the group and it's members.I have now moved into an OpsMgr 2007 consultancy role to do what I like most - working with OpsMgr and sharing my knowledge and experiences with the community.
With the Icelandic volcanic ash in the air, will I make it to Las Vegas for MMS?
I’m not scheduled to leave until Monday afternoon so I am hoping it will all blow over by then, but as weekend flights are already being cancelled I’m not very hopeful at the moment.
If the flight does go, see you at MMS if you’re there !
Fingers crossed mate for you and everyone else affected by this.
I've had my Saturday morning Virgin Atlantic flight direct from London Gatwick cancelled but earlier in the day I'd booked a backup for Monday from Heathrow via LAX. I'll get my original booking refunded but the new arrangement cost is twice the original :-(
As it stands, it looks like there's a window of opportunity for flights out of the UK below Manchester on Sunday but 'experts' think this may close by Monday, so I'm not keeping my hopes up.
If I can't fly out on Monday, I may well have to bite the bullet and take the loss. Here's hoping for a westerly wind!
