I'm Robert Marshall, director and principle consultant at SMSMarshall Ltd, who's specialism is in the Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager product and all of its dependent products, covering all aspects from Architecture, Implementation, Migration to Break-Fix.
I've been in front of computers for over 30 years now, with my roots in programming 8 bit computers, I've taken an often exciting journey which has led to becoming an expert in an enterprise product. I consider my career as starting 17 years ago, when I began my first serious role as a deployment engineer. I've seen 8 bit through to 64 bit, the rise and refinement of the interface we take for granted now, the rise of the Internet from land-line based modem access for the few, to the powerful broadband connections we have today for the masses, I saw mobile phones come into existence, and I've seen Microsoft evolve from more than a handful of employees to the company it is now, while pretty much tinkering with every OS they have released, as well as seeing an industry that has evolved around those humble beginnings to become what we have today. I'm a keen technical puzzle solver, I love to solve gnarly problems around my area of specialism. And, I love to share when I have time. I hope you enjoy the blog.
I've been trailing behind on my blogging recently, mostly due to our hosts stretching out this site move with delay after delay after delay. We've had to put the entire site on hold, blogging, event announcements etc for almost a month due to the way this has been handled. We've published a few blog entries here and there, but all we can do is offer our apologies and announce that we are literally one day away (hopefully) from completing the relocation.
Good news for us all here at WMUG, bit of a relief really!
Hang tight, one more outage as we switch IP's on the domain name!
And we're done! The site has been relocated to brand spanking super-fast hardware. The site should be responding far quicker now, or so it seems! Next up, a WMUG facelift ;-)
