As with a few others here I've posted a few times already, but thought it time to introduce myself.

I live in Hawkes Bay, and by day I work for Gen-i as a systems engineer (I work with tonyhuges, those that know him will pity me!). I've been living and breathing systems for the last 6 years (mostly with BNZ as a network engineer, followed by infrastructure design).

My intrests are wide and varied... Virtualisation, Windows Mobile, anything MS, Linux, server hardware, storage (SAN's etc), Cisco... ok, yeah, pretty much anything! I've been dabbling as of late in .NET apps, having been forced to telecom for my mobile, I wrote an app for my WM5 phone to forward text messages... By no means a proficient programmer, but enjoy having the ability to make something I want if I can't find it!

Oh yeah and VoIP's a new one for me - I run a Trixbox server at home.

My mate is the tallest in the back row of the group pic (i.e. he is just over average height), then you see him standing next to me in the two smaller pics...

So yeah...

'huge' is a label I live with sometimes!

err yeah sorry about that Tony... it's a mis-spelling of your name I noted somewhere very early on and it's kinda stuck :P

And I'm Ben by the way :)
