As per the "welcome to Geekzone" email, a post to introduce myself.

I'm Anthony Robins.  I'm a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Otago, which means that I know a bit about some esoteric topics, but in terms of practical working knowledge (networking, hardware etc) I'm no more skilled than the average user.  I'm particularly interested in CS education in schools, and have done a bit developing resources to support teachers with the new Digital Technology (programming) curriculum.

I have often found useful information here on Geekzone - thanks all for the great resource.

Hi Anthony and welcome!

You've already discovered how helpful the folks here are so hang around some more and you might even be able to help some yourself :)
