Hi, my name is Raymond from Malaysia. I’ve spent nearly half of my life on computers yet I still find them very interesting today. I instantly got hooked to the computer when the Internet became available with my cousin’s 14.4Kbps modem on Windows 95. That is when I learn about how to use the computer, reinstall Windows 95, MS-DOS commands and mIRC scripting. A few years later I had the opportunity to work part time in an internet cafe where I get to learn the basics of networking & security and Windows restrictions. After completing my secondary school, I worked at a local computer shop to learn more about hardware by building a computer from ground up, cloning operating systems and solving computer problems.
When I wanted to further my studies, I decided not to pursue a local diploma or degree but instead went for professional certification such as Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP), Microsoft Certified System Administrator (MCSA), Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE), CompTIA A+, Network+, i-Net+, e-Biz+, Server+, Security+, CIW Security Analyst, Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) and Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA). I have also successfully completed the Train the Trainer course and “Kursus Induksi Pegawai Pengesah Dalaman Bagi Pelaksanaan Persijilan Kemahiran Malaysia” for MLVK.
I’ve worked in a few big projects involving setting up rooms with hundreds of computer, networking, maintenance, Windows servers and lecturing. I am currently self-employed but attached full time to a government educational facility as an administrator together with a few freelance part time jobs involving computers.
This website (www.raymond.cc) was started back in 2005 as a personal blog with the sole purpose of noting down interesting findings and experience on computers because I tend to forget what I learn as I learn about computers everyday. Within a short period, this personal blog started to gain popularity attracting millions of visitors around the world every month. Although raymond.cc is still a personal blog today, I’ve emphasized more on providing unbiased information and reviews that are professionally tested with fair testing practices.
