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.

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

 Now that's what I call an entrance.
