Have met a few bods who post here regularly and seem to happen across the forums
way too often when researching mobile phones and other money-wasting devices
so thought it was about time I registered and introduced meself.

As a kid I spent way too much time building crazy stuff with Meccano and annoyed
the hell out of my poor parents for years littering the house with all manner of
terrifying model railways, scale model tanks and planes and in my sad early
teen years DnD books, dice and manuals.

These days I'm a web-developer based in Hamilton, so all in all I guess I
fit the Geekzone profile.

Oh, yes, the androids here are good at sending canned responses. But don't worry, the reply was 100% original and written just for you...

KiwiFoo was really a great opportunity for me and others. I hope we can meet in the future... Are you coming to Tech Ed 2007? I am going to be in Auckland for that.
