Hello, everyone! As the title states, I moved to Wellington a few days ago (on Tuesday, the 11th) with a student visa and I'm getting settled in. I'm originally from the United States. I'd like to consider myself all-around well-versed in most things IT, although I ultimately want to hone my skills in software development.

I'm an avid fan of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general, emulation, and enthusiast-grade hardware. 

This community appears to be an amazing place, and hopefully I can prove to be a welcomed contributor. I'm sure I'll get to know many of you in the coming months!

Welcome to NZ, and welcome to GZ!




Information wants to be free.
The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
