Hey geeks,


I joined the forum a while ago and have been a "lurker" since then. I thought it would be rude not to introduce myself, so here we go. My name is Daniel and I am a new addition to New Zealand, I moved here last year. For the last eight years I have been working for various companies in the ICT sector in Europe.


I came to New Zealand to join as Domain Name Consultant. SPRS helps startups and ICT companies with management, marketing, strategy etc. As part of my role I am acting as Domain Name Guy for, a new local domain registrar and web agency.


In my free time I like exploring the countryside, go fishing or on hikes and take photos with my camera, which I post on my personal blog That being said, I enjoy just as much not leaving the house and spend all night long in front of the monitor working on some designs or code and indulge myself in the occasional gaming session.


I live currently in Auckland. Well, I guess that is all for now.






(I assume posting this makes me a geek O.o)

Thanks muppet, appreciated. Not sure about the lotion and basket thing, should I be concerned? :)

AFAIK posting here only makes you a 'wannabe geek' so stick around awhile and then you can be a great geek! 😂
