What's that you say? A Brit joining a New Zealand forum? He must have a motive! Alas I do. I'm here to get a feel of the New Zealand technology space so I can better build out a product that we have that serves New Zealand webmasters, and hey maybe even find some interesting people to debate thermodynamics with! My name is Daniel (gosh knows why I didn't start with that) and I reside in a small village here the he UK.. Well that was hardly an exciting introduction was it?

Hi Daniel! Geekzone isn't purely for Kiwis :) I've seen quite a few overseas folk find their way here when searching for answers to tech problems :)

Anyway, welcome to the GeekZone!

lived 4 years in southern Surrey, just out of Chiddingfold ;)

<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.
