Hello everyone

After stumbling on geekzone a couple of times a week trough Igoogle, I decided to join this website to get a richer experience:)

I am currently a first year at the University of Otago, doing a Major in microbiology and a Minor in management. My family and I actually moved to NZ 4 years ago, after I lived in the Netherlands for 15 years... at first, I didn;t like it at all over here, but now its pretty sweet:)

I really enjoy working with everyting related to computers, and I am currently the proud owner of a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop and a Dell Axim X51v. At home (hamilton), I have a desktop pc which is about 3 years old so its time for an upgrade, but being a poor student I have to channel my money somewhere else.

hope to meet many of you!
