Hey everyone,

 

I just stumbled across this forum and it seems like a cool place to hang out. Lots of interesting conversations going on.

 

I also recently started working for a company that publishes tech reviews so I'm looking for places where I can learn more about the software that we cover.

 

As for hobbies, when I'm not working (which isn't often) I enjoy PC gaming, geocaching and reading.

Hi & Welcome!  I've been a little curious about geocaching, but never tried it.  :)

Few of us PC gamers here, and someconsole peasants too :-P





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

Can't remember what it was called, but I fell in love with a vertical scrolling pinball game a friend had on his Amiga 500.  I've not come across anything (that my nostalgia considers) anything half as good.

Pinball Dreams most likely, one of the best pinball games on any platform bar the real thing :)

Welcome to GZ.

 

Your profile shows you are from Israel? I'd say that is an unusual time zone location for around here.

 

What type of software do you cover?





Please keep this GZ community vibrant by contributing in a constructive & respectful manner.

Yup, I guess I'm the Israeli representative here :) Though I'm actually originally from the US.

 

As for the website, it has reviews for all kinds of enterprise software. Application security, cloud monitoring, project management etc. I'm more of a social media person so it's a pretty big learning curve, familiarizing myself with the different types of software, but I hang out in different forums and ask questions and eventually I'll get there :)
