Good afternoon citizens of Geekzone (NZ).

My name is Luke and I am about to tell you all a bit about me.

I am an IT Support Technician for a small computer repair service in the Waikato (although looking to move on to a larger organisation for both personal & professional growth) who is interested in most aspects of computing from building a computer and servicing to relaxing eating liquorice and watching web-based videos such as Hak5 & Revision 3.

 I have a National Diploma in Computing (Level 5) which I gained while studying at Advanced Training Academy in Hamilton, my interests involve but not limited to the latest technology and gadgets to PC gaming (Boo console!) and media (Movies/Television mostly Sci-Fi-related).

On my off-time when I get a time I am working on Techdrive (techdrive.co.nz) a personal blog related to articles and fixes I have gathered and typed up due to personal experience.

Gidday Luke!

Just been told by son that hiding a security camera (waterproof obviously) in a fishtank in an entrance-way would be cool ;)

This is a great bunch of people




Muddling along, being the most technical in the house, one of the oldest, and female .... hmmmmm gotta be some stereotypes busted in there somewhere.
