Hi all,

For those of us who haven't met, I'm Jarrod, a fairly new face at 

I'm a geek at heart, and though I come from a relatively non-technical 
background, I've spent the last few years trying to get my head around 
programming and other IT related stuff.. In my free time you would most 
likely find me attempting to get Perl to succumb to my whim or hanging 
out somewhere on FreeNode.

To cut things short, I'm essentially looking for a foot in the door, and 
I was wondering if anybody has or knows of a key that could open up this 
new world for me. I'd love to take on programming as a career, but would 
also enjoy doing some sysadmin work, both utilising my current skills, 
and building upon them.

Would love to hear from anyone if they're keen to discuss anything further,
