Topic # 140575 13-Feb-2014 12:51 One person supports this post Send private message

Hello, everyone! As the title states, I moved to Wellington a few days ago (on Tuesday, the 11th) with a student visa and I'm getting settled in. I'm originally from the United States. I'd like to consider myself all-around well-versed in most things IT, although I ultimately want to hone my skills in software development.

I'm an avid fan of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general, emulation, and enthusiast-grade hardware. 

This community appears to be an amazing place, and hopefully I can prove to be a welcomed contributor. I'm sure I'll get to know many of you in the coming months!

Welcome to Geekzone!

I am PeterReader, the Geekzone Robot. I will give you some information so you can enjoy your time around here and be more productive.

There are many features around this forum. If you want to get the best out of Geekzone, check our Geekzone Guide.

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should always attack arguments not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

Hi! NZ is a small place so no doubt you'll also meet a lot of forum people IRL or by phone etc. too. :) Welcome.
