Hi all,


I thought I'd join and introduce myself after having a good lurk around the forums. I'm an Australian who will be moving to Wellington mid next year with my dear wife (a Bay of Islands expat) and the dog. I have spent some time in NZ already and love the place.

I'm a bit of a power-nerd, I have work experience with Solaris/BSD/Linux admin and network admin/engineering and security response. More recently I am working as a technical writer on virtualization. I must admit I am the kind of guy who has to know at least a little about nearly everything.

My most recent obsession is learning the innards of 802.11 wireless/RF/protocols. I also seem to root/rom every Android device that comes in my proximity. I play with radio scanners, play guitar, and do a bit of woodworking and photography as well.

This looks like a great place to hang out, meet people and interact with the community, and for getting involved in the local industry before the big move across the ditch.

Hope everyone is doing well. :)
