Hello,

 

As a intermittent guest, I figured it was about time (due to the current Spark broadband lag mess) to join up, and put my 5c worth in. I've been in the IT and Telecoms industry for many years, though not there currently. Interests are computers, networks, skiing, motorcycles. Plus a bunch of other things that are liable to change at short notice.

 

Steve.

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.

Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

Welcome to GZ, Steve.

 

64 is an unusual lucky number!  Any story behind that?

Number of the first house I lived in (that I remember), first house I owned, and limited edition number of my motorcycle (old Ducati, bought new). And the ISD number for NZ. OK - the last one is just a coincidence... I think.
