Networking

I have been developing my knowledge of hardware, software and networks for many years. Using this I have provided Technical Support to colleagues, internal users, friends and family members (over the phone, via email and onsite) resolving their individual computing problems. I have built and upgraded PCs for myself and others. I have also installed and configured several small Ethernet LANs with Network Attached Storage. I have an excellent knowledge of Microsoft DOS, Windows, Office, SQL Server, Oracle and PostgreSQL. I also have a good knowledge of: Oracle Discoverer (both Desktop and Administration Editions), Oracle Reports, Quest TOAD for Oracle, Sage Line 50, Albany ALBACS-IP and dBase IV.

Application of Skills

My skills are applied at work and at home. At work I have programmed many applications for a wide variety of purposes that are in frequent use. I have been involved with data mapping, transformations, cleansing and loading using a variety of SQL DBMS technologies. I have developed complex reports and MI Extracts. Outside of work I have written (and support) several pieces of bespoke software that are used by the company my father formerly worked. I have specified equipment for a small business (Leaff Design), setup their network and Network Attached Storage and provide support when required.

Commercial Awareness

I regularly read about new computing: technologies, hardware, software and industry news on the Internet and in magazines.
