I've read geekzone forums a lot over the years looking for information and was surprised I hadn't already registered when I went to post a wanted to buy ad. So I've joined so I can see if anyone has an old T9300 or T9500 CPU to keep my laptop going. I like the way registration process is setup to avoid spammers and the information provided to ensure everyone knows how they should post and play nicely.


Thanks for such a great site, it has been very useful over the years and hope I can contribute something useful.

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.

Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

Welcome to Geekzone!



Thanks, I love the automation you have included on Geekzone. Now I just have to work out how many posts I need to make or how long to wait to post in "offers and wanted" forum.:-)

Thank you. Luckily we live on a higher ground and weren't affected as much as others. Plus since we got caught out with the heavy downpour on 18th Dec we prepared for this one and made sure all our drains were cleared in advance.:-).

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