My name is Ann Mc Donough I am from the province of Quebec, Canada. I have a Bachelors in Political Science having studied at Concordia and at Laval University. For my technical training I became a Microsoft Certified Professional in following the complete training program at Champlain Regional College completed in 2003. I am a multi-disciplinary Network Specialist. My favourite aspects of information technology are Mail servers (Exchange, LotusDomino, etc.), DNS, Active Directory, and protocols. I have been a writer and this capacity has lead me to become a Technical Writer as a Network Specialist. I have been working in the information technology sectors for the last ten years. I have touched programming, multimedia, sales & marketing, project management and network management. I hope to continue working in this very interesting field of speciality and hope to find a wider audience to expose this work to. My objective is to publish a complete manual on network management and infrastructures eventually. Please enjoy the documentation that I will provide for the Website and give me feedback on your impressions.
