Hello world!

Actually, that’s quite an appropriate title for the first entry. I work in Technical Support in a University Department that is heavily involved in Computing and technology research. As such, I and my colleagues often find ourselves talking with academics who are at the peak of their field, but still struggle with basic functionality of IT equipment.

We’re involved in Academia, but not Academics. As a department we’re wealthy (in theory) but the peculiars of University financing mean that the money doesn’t always come back to us. We support a wide variety of hardware and software platforms rather than specialising in a few.

Personally, I often find myself on the fringes of one clique or another, hence this blog is called mediary (betwixt was taken).

First thing is to get a nice Template! Will this do?
