Hey all, I've been lurking a while and recently decided to register to start contributing, and have only just gotten around to writing an intro post. So, my apologies for that!

Anyway, I find GZ very useful for all sorts of questions, queries and help, and hopefully I can do my share of contributing and helping others, too. I'm a contract Systems/Infrastructure Engineer based in Auckland, and have been working in the IT industry in general for about 10 years now. There's always so much to learn and new things to play with, so I really enjoy it. And as with most industries in NZ, it's fairly small community when it comes down to it, so it's great to get to know a few more people too :)

Cheers,

Inphinity
