Hey folks,

Another Saffer coming to your fine shores to join the rest of the gang 

Coming via a 10 year stint in London, Sweden before that, Norway before that.

It was never ever my intention to come here but I met a lovely lass from ChCh on a particular messy night in Notting Hill in '12 and before I know it I was on a plane to NZ to be dragged in front of the mother, sister and friends for inspection. That passed I was told last November that we're moving to ChCh, whether I like it or not.

So here I am.

Huge tech geek despite earning my way as a Civil Engineer. I asked for a 'man room' to keep all my PC bits as I'm always knee deep in mobos, CPUs and RAM chips.

I also enjoy that odd bit of gaming but I'm more into overclocking the pants off my hardware than using it for pure gaming. I tend to buy game consoles and open it up to see if I can swap bits out and make it faster.

Anyway, I hope I enjoy my stay on these forums and looking forward to chatting with you lot.
