Hello Everyone,

 

Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself, my name is Chris, I'm a Sr. IT Engineer in Oklahoma City, I work mainly with Servers, hardware and virtual ones.

 

I have a little bit of storage and networking experience, but not an expert by any means, just a beginner there. I love technology, and enjoy being around all things tech.

 

I was led to this site from a user named @michaelmurfy, from a link he posted over in the Ubiquiti forums, enjoyed his posts and the tech topics here, so I joined up!

 

Can't wait to dive into some tech/geek discussions.

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should always attack arguments not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

I want to visit NZ someday, maybe you all here can help me figure out a trip for my family and spots to visit etc, all I've seen of your land is very beautiful.

Mate, I live in the south of the South Island ( Google : Queenstown, Wanaka ) I'd be happy to sort out the ultimate road trip itinerary for you.

 

NZ is amazing, the trick for Kiwis is learning not to take it for granted. The older I get, the more blown away I am that this is my country !!

South Auckland to North Shore is a fantastic road trip at 8am weekdays - can really kick back and relax to take in the views of Auckland and its people ;)
