I've been lurking for a while, and recently started joining in, so I figured it's probably best to say hi.

I'm happily hooked on technology. I have an advanced knowledge in many areas of tech, but I don't claim to be an expert in anything. I do my best to look at tech objectively, and don't much care for (X) vs (Y) "battles"

I'm fairly competent on matters regarding PC's, HTPC's, mobile phones, HomeServer, networking and Electrical wiring and automation.

You'll also find me lurking on "ARGUS TV", "We Got Served", and occasionally even "MediaPortal" forums.

So... Hello, My name is Andrew.

Welcom Andrew and good stuff on the intro. No need to my usual we're awesome here at GZ (mostly) since you've already been looking for a bit. Another person to add to the amazing talent pool of users is always a bonus. :-)
