Been on Geekzone a while but never actually introduced myself properly!

My day job from 9 to 5 is in the electricity retailing industry and my primary contact is with small medium enterprise customers, time of use electricity users and the like.

On the weekends, i drop right out of the corporate cloak and do mobile DJ-ing for 21sts, wedding receptions, work functions etc.

I confess to being a Geek also! Always interested in things electronic, technical and checking out new gadgets that get released etc.

Geekzone is now my first port of call for technical queries and always follow with interest the discussions on here. I've learnt a lot just by checking the relevant forums when needed.

Great stuff - there seems to be a lot of people here with a big contrast between work/home/hobbies - Geeks these days, in my experience, are most often enthusiastic professionals who can hold their own at a keyboard AND a party :-)
