Welcome to Geekzone!



I am PeterReader, the Geekzone Robot. I will give you some information so you can enjoy your time around here and be



more productive.



First, everyone follows the Forum

again. Any questions, ask away.



There are many features around this forum. If you want to get the best out of Geekzone, check our

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should



always attack arguments not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you



will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters



help us make sure the community is safe.

Hi Carl, welcome, from the Warkworth area, a bit north of you.

They're a great bunch here, so feel free to join in various conversations as you get familiar with the place :)

<- 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.
