Hi Andrew 

While I thought your email was a very valid and positive contribution to
this particular discussion, I'm afraid you'll have to watch out the "thread
police" are out and about again and possibly on steroids (smile)!!

Cheers

Alan

you will get more kudos from employers by getting out there and making
yourself known.  Any experience is valuable, but more so on the job
experience, especially if you already have a qualification, that will put
you ahead of a lot of people wanting to start out in IT already.

university.
