About

Robert Pearman is a UK based Small Business technology enthusiast. Which is to say, he is enthusiastic about technology used in small businesses, although to talk to him you would be forgiven for thinking the opposite.
Rob & The MSN Dude

He has been working within the SMB IT Industry for what feels like forever, focusing mainly on Microsoft products in particular Small Business Server and more recently, the Windows Server Essentials family products. He has a basic understanding of CISCO routers and switches, in that he can identify them by their logo.

In 2004 Robert was living the dream working in a clothes store as a fitting room attendant. It was here he decided he needed a new dream. Never being someone known for his imagination, he found an advert in the local paper for an instructor led MCSE class, and decided this was for him.

After applying for the course he found out exactly what an MCSE was, but decided to carry on anyway.

In October 2006 Robert finished the last of his exams for the MCSE in Windows 2003, also completing the MCSA requirements on the same day.

Not content with being simply an MCSE Robert went on to also complete the Security specialization, but never got around to doing Messaging, which i think he really should have done since he always did more Exchange work than ISA.. but what do i know.

Robert likes Piña colada and getting caught in the rain, on occasion he also enjoys writing about Small Business Technology like Windows Server Essentials.

If you’re in trouble, and you can find him, maybe you can ask him a question. Just dont ask him to write out a public BIO because he really hates that.

Robert is keen to promote the SBS community and is a member of the London SBSC IT Pro group, however he doesn’t visit as often as he might like.

    I think your blog is full of wonderful tips, tricks and other good to know stuff, but have just 1 criticism… your layout makes it very easy to miss a hidden gem of an article. I think you even recognize that in the SBS 365 article, you say something like okay, stop scrolling. You should try follow a format like engadget, BGR, h2g, etc … give us a quick blurb, then let us “read more” if that’s a topic of interest, if not, the next topic should be right there, instead of about 5 screenfuls down. That makes people want to come in every couple of days to see what new articles have been posted.

    thanks again – great site – but sadly i might only end up here from a search engine trip. hopefully you consider a little change to the format.

    • I think that is a sensible suggestion thanks, unfortunately i don’t seem to be able to set the theme that way through wordpress.

      If you want to keep up to date with the site, there is an RSS feed as well as a subscription to get updates when new posts are published!
