Kia Ora ALL

Ive been meaning to register here for some time and was trying to get some help on a subject from my friend gOOgle and it lead me hear .... sooo Its about time I registered and supported a NZ forum.

I dont get as much time to surf the net as I used to after I got an infection from a spinal operation that floored me ... forever and used to be a VOIP Engineer working between Aussie and NZ so im not as "geeky" as what I used to be

Thats the reason for the nickname

Now I spend a lot more time "locked" into home but help friends out on their various Internet projects helping with Domains/Hosting/Software efg forums CMS/Administration and also help friends when in need with help in their never ending computer problems and virus/spyware issues

So thats just a little about me
Now its time to lurk and see what else I can find here and maybe be that "knight in shining armor" to some other geek in need

Ki ora,

TBH lots of GZers are wanna-be geeks with even less background in IT than you have...
This is actually GOOD, cos then we also have access to legal and social 'helpers' with expertise in other areas too :)

Have fun, be kind, try not to rant too much and you'll fit right in!
