About Me

Aim of Site

I’m aiming to use the site to let other admins know about some great utilities and websites to help in managing networks, primarily for schools, but hopefully relevant everywhere. As well as share some tips and ideas for managing computers.

Background

James Rudd, living in Sydney, Australia. I started working on the school network at high school and continued right through Uni. I am currently working full time as a Network Administrator at Sydney Boys High School.
