Hello Geeks,


Finally, I've decided to introduce myself. I gonna do that in a Q/A format. Feel free to submit your own questions.


1 - How did you find Geekzone?
I was looking for geek stuff and... Voilà!


2 - Why 'kickintheeye'?
Glad you asked that. I love The Smiths. My nickname came from 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now.'
"In my life
Why do I smile
At people who I'd much rather kick in the eye?"


3 - What is your superpower?
I have the superpower to create unsuccessful Geekzone topics [laughs].


4 - What was the last geek thing you did for yourself?
My last personal geek project was a Linux NAS server with OpenMediaVault. It works as my file server and media player running a Plex Server.


5 - What will you contribute to our geek community?
Sometimes I start a post, then a few seconds later I give up. I would say my humble contribution is related to the new design of the Geekzone Badges. I'm not sure if anyone cares or notice them, but I always have fun working on that project. There are quite a few. It will be a while before I'm done with that.


Geekzone Badges


6 - Where our stalkers can find you?
I live in Christchurch. Let's grab a cuppa sometime. No needs to stalk me [laughs].

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. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.
