My name is Chintan Ranchhod, 28 years old and live in Hampshire, England. I work for Virgin Media one of the largest isp's in UK in Internet Security. Before that used to work in the Network Management Centre, looking after network devices & links (Fibre optics, routers, switches, etc) which was across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Been in IT for over 10 years. But brought up on the internet most of my life, since the age of 13 when 9.6k modems where first out.
Was quite big into the gaming scene, played for a few clans and was in a few european competitions for deathmatches for various games in the early days of the internet. I have always had a deep passion for online gaming. I have seen it grow since the whole thing started. Also see other info case study written on me by Cisco Networking Academy. (http://www.netacadadvantage.com/aft…hintan.htm).
I am looking to branch out and create my own IT consultancy and start projects like this over the next few years, as online gaming is my speciality. The culture and personality trying to put across with "1337 LAB" is expert knowlege in online gaming, free/sell products to optimise and enhance online games for better performance. Giving the gamer/clans extra power/advantage to the reach the top of thier game.

The software tools will be designed for PC (Personal Computers).
