    I'm an IT Director, so network stuff is by no means my only responsibility, but yeah, I'm here.

    My boss is the network manager... He runs the admin and the network, we make sure things work client side. We have 3x ICT rooms (32 machines), plus a suite in each faculty and a wireless classroom (32 laptops). Workable between 3 of us.

    I'm one of many at work I suppose. I'm responsible for ~75 desktops in two student labs consisting of Windows 2000 with Novell OES.

    I also help out other "network managers" with the staff domain (running Win2K Server currently moving to 2003) and a small Linux lab of 25 desktops running Scientific Linux (with a Debian server if I remember correctly).

    Thing's are looking up though as I might be starting to help out with our local grid project for more server-side experience. :cool:

    Like others, I am a network admin plus other things besides. DO everything IT related (and a lot of things that are not IT related!!) for about 100 people over 6 sites, includes 5 servers (due to have a few more!) a dozen blackberrys, mobile phones, copiers, printers, phone system, programming, web site design, intranet design, database admin, you name it, I do it :)


    keeps me busy (as you can imagine!)
