Hi. I am new to this site so will give a quick introduction of myself

I am a 43 year old solo dad who has just completed a level 5 diploma in computing, archived the CompTIA A+ certification and am about to sit the Net+ exams.
I have worked with computers for over 20 years doing repairs and troubleshooting for family and friends. I ran my own Bulletin Board System back in the late 80's and early 90's called Heavy Artillery BBS which offered messages, door games, chat and file downloads. I used to be a frequent user on mIRC and the yahoo chat rooms. 

I am located in Auckland New Zealand

Welcome




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