About Me

 

Who am I?

My name is Greig Mitchell,  I am a 27 years old and from the west of Scotland where I currently reside. Since around the age of 10 I have had a great interest in computing and the world of technology in general.

I currently work as a senior IT officer, where as part of a team I manage and maintain my companies corporate network infrastructure.

When I’m not at work I like continue the technology trend by messing around with hardware and software, and making stuff work the way I want it to. Over the years I have extensively tested numerous Microsoft technologies such as; Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and many more.

I have been an avid skateboarder for around 16 years now and still enjoy skating on a regular basis. I also enjoy playing guitar as well as recording my own music.

What are your PC specs?

Those who know me will tell you that I’m a complete PC hardware nut, and they aren’t wrong. Whilst there are many PC’s and Laptop’s in my household I will only focus on the two that I primarily use on a day to day basis, those being my own custom built desktop and Surface Pro 3.

I also have a few servers running at home which I use for various internal services, including testing.
