I signed up to Geekzone a while ago (2011), but haven't really used my account until now.


I'm a SysAdmin, living and working in Auckland. Mostly interested in working with software development teams/companies to make stuff flow nicely and scale once it gets there.


In term of personal projects, I'm trying to bring our 1920's bungalow into the next century as well as a whole bunch of other stuff I'll never have time for :-)


Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

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.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Oh yeah, we did that to our 1950’s state type house. Glad to have done it, don't want to do it again, still have a few minor things left. Proverb: house finished, person die.

Welcome into non lurking!
