Why this site exists

This is designed to be a personal record for my IT tips. The kind of things that I find or figure out that might be really handy to someone else or to me in the future.

Why on the internet? Well because I owned the domain anyway and having it straight on the Internet is the easiest place to find things again. If it helps someone else along the way then it’s a bonus. If it does help anyone out then please drop me a comment to let me know…

Me Specific

I am an IT Pro based in the north east of the UK who specialises in Microsoft enterprise products. I am a Senior Consultant for Waterstons who are a UK based IT consultancy and services company. I have been involved in many projects including ISA server deployments, SCCM configuration and upgrades and PKI installations. Previously I worked at the NECC as a Systems administrator as well as doing a few small bits and pieces on the side such as technical proof reading. Before moving into the north east I lived up in Edinburgh and worked for the RBS group doing IT work for one of their subsidiaries.


I know opinion varies as to the “worth” of industry certification but I see it as a good way to at least showcase that you have knowledge in a certain area and care enough about your career to want to be able to “prove it” in some way.

    Hi Jimmy,
    Does your SIP address match your internal domain? I.e for me my sip is ben@company.com but my username is ben@company.local?

    Have you specified the username correctly in the “options” bit?
