Hi all, I just signed up as I'm having home networking issues.
I live in Taranaki, apparently the sunniest place in NZ at the moment.
Am not a technical person but my family and I enjoy the benefits of technology and we have managed to cobble together a useful and easy to use home network which allows everyone to share photos, play music, watch movies and stuff where they want out in our little slice of country.
I work with some clever techies at work and have noticed most 'geeks' are really generous in sharing knowledge and helping muppets like me get the most out of our toys.
I have been reading geekzone for years and many of the forums have helped me solve technical challenges at home.
With life so busy with three small kids I have run out of time trawling through forums to try to solve the latest drama so I signed up and posted in the broadband section and then read a note that said I should introduce myself so hence here I am.
Hope all is good with you and thanks for all your help in the past.

Welcome Aboard!

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

Hi Neil! Welcome. 


Your arrival at Geekzone sounds a lot like mine :)


It amuses me that I'm the most technical in our home. But the folks here have been great at sharing advice when I've needed it, and I've also made new friends here


Join in where ever you feel comfortable. They really are a great bunch

<- don't ask me where I am - I haven't a clue: its a tech thing ;)
Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.
