Hi there,
I've been lurking on blogs and coming here occasionally and finally signed up.

My name is Daniel, 22, and I'm a computer science student at Waikato University - final semester of my BCMS. I'm looking forward to graduating (at last!) and finding a job in Wellington. I currently work part-time at the Uni on the web team.

I have a machine I built myself with a Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz, 2gb of RAM, nVidia 7900GS. The interesting thing about it is it also doubles as my HTPC with a Skystar 2 in it, last year having a separate machine do the work until I moved.

I'm into my gadgets but don't have that many due to being a student and all. PS3 and PSP player (PSN ID is SnapAttack, feel free to add).

I guess that is a small bit about me and undoubtedly we'll see each other around a bit more :P Some links in my sig.

Hey Daniel,

I'm Louis(21), I just graduated from Canterbury - It's a pretty good feeling when you get your certificate (a feeling of reassurance).  I'm not working at the moment - I'm at home living off savings (I do a bit of part time tutoring at uni too), but i'm enjoying the time at home, and am doing a bit of web development using ASP.Net

Anyway, good luck with your work in Wellington.  The weather there isn't that great (I did my first year in Welly), but you'll get what you make out of it :)

Thanks all, and I did hyperlink them in the end :)

I've found myself floating in the Freeview forums.
