Hi All,

 

Just thought I'd throw a hello out since it seems to be the thing indicated I should do.

 

Just moved to NZ from AU. Been working IT for quite a number of years now and I'm still doing the same here now.

 

Just settling in now but thought it would good to join a local tech group while still maintaining homeland ones.

 

My username is uniform across everything (with minor alterations depending on name availability) so in regarding to gaming (which is a passion) so chances are I may have played something against somebody at some point here hopefully given that AU and NZ servers cross over.

 

Otherwise hello!
