IT Networking and Communities
EduGeek.Net is a 30,000+ Member Strong Community, which brings IT Professionals' from all over the world both In and Out of the Education Sector. I've been a member of this community for 4 Years now and have played a mixture of roles from being a Newbie, Member, Support and Board Moderator. I've enjoyed every part i have played to help out the community and to this day like to be involved with the discussions that take place and also help out other members within the community. It's a very resourceful website for people just starting out in IT or/ people whom have worked in IT for years and wish to get help on New and Old Technologies or whom just want to pass on there knowledge to other IT Pro's around the world.

Cutter Project are a company that i have worked very closely with in the past when we were implementing VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) at a secondary school i worked in previously. The Service and Knowledge they have is next to none which is why i as well as themselves would refer to them as VDI Specialists. They are Oracle GOLD Partners as well as VMWare Enterprise Partners and pretty much specialize in every aspect of Virtualization. They are well known for the professionalism and outstanding planning and implementation. A Company I HIGHLY Recommend for your VDI and Storage Requirements. Website: http://www.cutterproject.com
Paul Heather - Designer
I have known Paul for quite a few years now and have used him many times in the past and no doubt will do in the future for all my design requirements, I met Paul on EduGeek.net and we have been speaking ever since. He Creates all of the Artwork for EduGeek.net itself (logos etc) and he is also the man behind the design of EduTech Hosting. I would recommend Paul very highly to anyone who comes near to mentioning the word Design to me.
On the Web Front he is very good with the Joomla Content Management System, He is also the chap who compiled together the EduJoomla package over on the EduGeek Projects Site.
Paul is your man for any Design/Web Development requirements! Highly Recommend him as do many other members on the community over at EduGeek.net
Motor Vehicle Services
Lodge Tyre Company whom were establish in 1936 are one of my favorite company's to deal with, they provide the best service i have ever seen in regards to dealing with Car Tyre's they treat all there customers with the up most respect and do a fantastic job ensuring that your vehicle is safe on the road. We all know tyres can be a painful problem when we need them but i know that when i go to these chaps they are extremely honest and if they can help me out to save me some cash they will do. Everything they have done for me has been great from getting Brand New Tyres ordered and fitted at a time that suits me to recommending products to help save me money and make my car more economical. The staff are very friendly and were very good when i asked them to explain how certain things worked as I'm always up for asking questions. Great Work Guys! Website: www.lodgetyre.co.uk
