Hey everybody. I'm Whiteb0b

I have been a reader of the forums on and off for a while now but figured I should finally create an account.

I run a Lan Party in Auckland called EchoLan. http://www.echolan.co.nz/ have been running it for nearly 4 years now, I've been into the LANing scene for a LOOONNGGG time. Which is where I focus most of my tech knowledge and interest.

Mostly I'm a gamer though. With a collection of both modern and classic video game consoles, that's where I spend most of my free time outside of EchoLan. Refurbishing and playing the classics :)

During the day I work at MediaWorks in their Tech department, and I used to work for Revera (Before the Gen-I buyout).

Have a great day everybody.

Hi Bob, and welcome

You'll find a wide variety of folks here - some geeks by profession, some by hobby, and some because being a housewife is boring ;)

I'm sure you'll find other classic gamers here, but keep looking around and ask questions in relevant threads when you're stuck on something else





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