and greetings from Finland.
I had to come up here for family reasons and will return back to near Hamilton at the end of the month.
Not bad time to get up north at this time of the year. Sunny and warm although takes some time to get used to midnight sun. 

I'm 100% MS tools/environments developer with about 15 years of experience in web and windows development. We have been moving between NZ and Finland for couple of times now and hopefully our last move down to NZ was the last one :)

Geekzone seems to be a well moderated discussion board with lots of interesting stuff. I was getting desperate with reading TM discussions (which more often look like online asylum than a message board) until I found the Geekzone.

Welcome to GZ and welcome back to NZ here's hoping (as you are) that indeed this is the last time you feel the need to go back and forth with the international move. Trademe message boards are rubbish GZ is where it's at for any and everything not just tech stuff.
